Looking Quotable

As I explained yesterday, I was nominated to participate in the Quote Challenge.
The rules of the challenge are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post a quote each day for three consecutive days.
3. Nominate three bloggers each day to do the same.
I accept the challenge!

A big thank-you and a shout out to swtspontaneous for the nomination. Go check out the site and leave a nice comment (you might even feel compelled to follow!)

My quote is as follows:
“Oftentimes, when people are miserable, they will want to make other people miserable, too. But it never helps.”
― Lemony Snicket, The Wide Window

This is of course a take on the old saying that misery loves company. Making everyone around you unhappy never cheers you up and only results in everyone having a miserable time! And it is so very true that it is not only unhelpful but is a sure way to drive away acquaintances, friends and even family. I have had some really horrible days at work and when I returned home I just wanted to isolate my self to limit the contagion of negativity. Some folks turn to drink or drugs. Others seek comfort in food. My preferred escape is between the covers of a good book.

Now the difficult part – to nominate 3 more people! As they say in the Pokemon universe “I choose you!”

    1. Some people are only happy when they are miserable. Others are only too happy to share the misery. I like to look at the bright side. There is more to rejoice in than to cry about!!
