3 Days, 3 Quotes | Day 1

I’ve seen this tag all over the book blogging community and thought it was high time I did it myself! I think at one point someone did actually tag me in it, but then I completely forgot to do it. Also, doing it now after the initial craze appears to have died down somewhat is probably a good idea, since for a while it seems as though every other bookish post I saw was about this tag.

Without any further ado, here are the rules:

  • Post one quote a day for three consecutive days
  • Nominate three new bloggers each day

Let’s get started!

Today’s quote:

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”

– The Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T.E. Lawrence

I’ve never read this book and tbh I don’t know if I want to? Because I’ve heard that T.E. Lawrence, AKA the famous “Lawrence of Arabia,” expressed some pretty racist views in it. I adore this quote, though. Never fails to make a chill run through me. I actually wrote it on the inside front cover of my planner to remind me to keep working hard!

I’m tagging:

And as always, feel free to participate whether or not I tagged you. (Or ignore this tag, if you so choose.)

What are some of your favorite quotes? Do you know of any good ones specifically about dreams and dreaming?

P.S. I’m also a big fan of Edgar Allan Poe’s, “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” Both men had the same idea re: imagination!
