The second of three quotes

Many thanks to Sabah Batul, for nominating me for the Three Day Three Quotes challenge which requires me to post a quote on three consecutive days and challenge 3 more people to do the same. I see a lot of quotes these days on Social Media so it is hard to find something that stands out and that is easily memorable. I think this quote fits the bill.

Quote

 

 

 

“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”

Malala Yousafzai

Most of you will know Malala’s story. At the age of 14, in 2012, she was shot by the Taliban. She and her family were able to get to England where she recovered from her injuries. In 2014, she won the Nobel Peace Prize. I recommend the documentary movie “I am Malala.” In the movie, her past in Pakistan is portrayed via lovely artistic animations.

As I was looking for a quote from her, I was interested to find extracts from her BBC blog which she started at the age of 11. It took me right there to her experience in Pakistan.

That she continues with the work that she is now doing, even while continuing her own studies, is testament to what can be achieved with a positive attitude.

My nominations for this challenge are:

OPRF Life

My apologies if you get these notifications twice. I have messed up copying a post so this is part of the fix!

The first of three quotes

Many thanks to Sabah Batul, for nominating me for the Three Day Three Quotes challenge which requires me to post a quote on three consecutive days. I see a lot of quotes these days on Social Media so it is hard to find something that stands out and that is easily memorable.

Mandy Rice-Davies (1964)

I read recently about the death of Mandy Rice-Davies in December 2014. Together with her friend Christine Keeler, she was involved in the Profumo affair of 1963.

“He would, wouldn’t he?”

 

was her widely reported response when asked in Marylebone court, “Do you know Lord Astor has made a statement to the police saying that these allegations of yours are absolutely untrue?”  The quote was sometimes shortened with the acronym MRDA. (Mandy Rice-Davies applies.)

My nominations are belated because I forgot to put them in before I posted this! Apologies:
