Quote Friday #1

July 7, 2017

I’ve decided to do a thing. Every Friday, I’m going to post a quote on my blog. I love quotes: I have them stuck to the wall of my office, scribbled on receipts in my wallet, etched on to my brain (not really, but y’know, go with the metaphor).

These quotes may be from wherever. Books. TV shows (I hope you like West Wing. And SeaChange). Inspiring people. Psychoanalysts. Things my Grandma used to say. They may be dark, or uplifting, or something in between. I’m going to post a quote every Friday for a year. Sometimes I might write a little story about what the quote means to me, but sometimes, I won’t.

If you’re a blogger, you might like to join in? Let me know if you do.

Here’s Quote Friday #1 from the great man himself, Mr Dahl…

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life…if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.”
