Three Quotes, Three Day Challenge – Day 2

31 Mar

I have been nominated by the brilliant, Basel-based blogger and bookworm Bev (please don’t try saying that after a few drinks, it might get you into trouble) to publish three of my favourite quotes in three days. Today is Day 2.

The rules are very simple:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).

3. Nominate three bloggers each day.

 

Today I would like to chose this quote:

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

– Confucius

Confucius was definitely not referring to this when he wrote this but on a personal level, this is exactly how I feel about running. People tend to boast about how fast they run or what their times are for certain distances and compare themselves with other people. It makes themselves feel superior to others. In actual fact, how fast you can run doesn’t make you any better or worse than anyone else that you meet during your life. The exception that proves the rule is professional athletes because that is their job. For anyone else, the most important thing is that you are out there and giving it a go, which is far better than not even bothering to give it a go at all.

Of course, this quote is applicable to all areas of life and not just running. Slow progress is still progress. The most important thing is to keep going. You will get there in the end.

I don’t shy away from declaring that I am a dirty rule breaker because I really wanted to join in in the challenge. I haven’t nominated anyone, because I’m not sure that I know any bloggers that will definitely reply. I’m still waiting for the bad karma to strike.

However, if you are a blogger reading this, please feel free to consider this as a personal nomination. It would be interesting to see the quotes that you choose!
