The Blog Quote Challenge, Or That Time You Learned Some of My Favorite Quotes



Some of you might think my malignant narcissistic personality disorder causes me to constantly think to myself:


I mean, well, yeah, sometimes, but not ALL the time. In all seriousness, I am always shocked when I read a tag or challenge post and see my name on the list of bloggers tagged. It makes me feel like Louise Miller when she got Shana's lucky jacket so she could cast her most popular girl spell. It makes me feel like Kelly when she won Homecoming Queen even though her face turned purple after using Screech's Zit Off cream. It makes me feel like Beyonce' when her hair got caught in the fan in Montreal and she was all "HALO, HALO, HALO" bitches because she is just that fabulous.  It makes me feel like, well, you get the idea.
Point being, whenever you guys tag me, I am totally all:

Cause Mister, I am a weirdo. #butyouknowthisalready

I was tagged by Katie at The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life to do The Blog Quote Challenge to choose three of my favorite quotes ever. Thank you doll! Katie has an upbeat personality and always has a positive outlook on life. If you are not following her yet, then you totally should and please tell her Military Wife and Pug Life sent you.

Oh, but to choose only THREE of my favorite quotes. You guys already know my most recent favorite quote from my post 10 Reasons Why Every Woman Should Care About Agent Carter.

#PeggyCarterisQueen

Since we are in the world of television, how about a favorite quote of mine by Agent May, another #Marvel female badass, from Agents of Shield?

How true is that? #wordsofwisdombyAgentMay

Or perhaps one from my favorite television character of all time, Faith from Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

Do not be fooled; most people you meet wear masks.
We are always peeling off their layers to discover who they truly are behind those masks.
One of the many reasons I love blogging anonymous. You guys get to see the REAL me.

Or how about one of my favorite movie quotes that I say all the time (#forreals, just ask Military Husband):

I am definitely not normal.

Or how about a quote from my favorite comedienne:

Everybody that does not like me can just SUCK IT.
#yessssss

But, I guess if I have to narrow it down, here are my Top Three Favorite Quotes:

The first quote is from Meet Joe Black and it reminds me of my husband. You see, when I first started talking to him, I was a bit guarded. But one day, I realized that taking risks with your heart is part of falling in love. And I could think of no better person to take that risk with than him.


The second is from my historical crush, Napoleon Bonaparte. Little fact about yours truly, I have a Master's in History, with a concentration on French Revolution and Napoleonic History (my Master's thesis was on Marie Antoinette). #themoreyouknow

The actual words said by Napoleon were something along the lines of "When the enemy is making a false movement, we must take good care not to interrupt him," but has evolved over time.


I always thought of this when I was dealing with competition at work, or when I was simply dealing with someone who I had quarrel with in my past. It is a fantastic quote by an interesting and complex man.

The third, and last, is probably my hands down favorite, and a quote you should live by:


Seriously, folks. Never let anything take away your joy.

Did I cheat a little bit and throw in a few more quotes?  #Nahhhh  Now, I am supposed to nominate three other bloggers. Only three? #lame #butIheartsomanyofyou 

Here are the rules:
1) Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2) Post three of your favorite quotes (this can be done all in one post, or on three consecutive days). 
3) Nominate 3 bloggers and challenge them.

I nominate:
Laura at Simply Me, The Way I See It
Melissa at Barking from the Bayou
Jenny at The Flutterbye Chronicles

As always, I remain, quotably,
