Over the past few days I have been taking part in the three-day quote challenge and am now on my third and final day! Thank you very much to the very kind Tales from the Mind of Kristian for this nomination.
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post one quote per day over three days.
- Nominate three blogs per day to take part in the challenge.
But little do men perceive what solitude is, and how far it extendeth. For a crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love – Francis Bacon.
The first time that I read these lines, I had to write them down somewhere, so carried them with me on a note on my phone for a number of weeks until I rediscovered them. What Bacon is saying is completely true; this quote all about friendship and the importance of love. It’s also another statement that’s particularly relevant in today’s society. We can have thousands of followers and Facebook friends, but if we don’t really know them, or they don’t really care, we’re still in solitude.
Thank you ever so much for reading! My exam period is still ongoing so my posts might be quite irregular for a little while. I’ll be back with you soon enough, though!
To my nominees: as always, there is no obligation to take part in this challenge; if nothing else, see it as an appreciation of your wonderful work.
