Once again, my thanks go out to The Ugly Duckling’s Life for including me in the Quote Challenge. If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend checking out her blog. It’s an eclectic bit of writing that is well, well worth it. Although she is killing me with the recipes that she sometimes posts…simply killing me. I’m sad to see this challenge end, it’s been really interesting to think about the quotes and choose which ones to use. I may continue to do an entry once in a while on those topic.
Everyone who has followed my blog for any amount of time knows that I am somewhat taken with Marvel Comics and the Marvel Universe as it plays out on the big screen. So it should come as no surprise that I would attempt to sneak in a quote from one of the characters into this challenge. I could’ve chosen the delightful Deadpool who, goodness knows, has come up with some doozies or the ever sassy Tony Stark who has spouted off some definite noteworthy quotes in his day. But no. For this, I must refer to my favorite, Loki of Asgard. So for my third quote, I give you:
“I am Loki, of Asgard and I am burdened with glorious purpose.” ~ Loki of Asgard (Avengers)
Now, now, before you roll your eyes at me, yes, I realize that Loki was on a mission of destruction at the time he made this declaration. However, taking simply the quote and not its intent…or rather Loki’s intent…aren’t we all burdened with glorious purpose? Or shouldn’t we be? If this quote were spoken by say, Tony Robbins or Stephen Covey (rest his soul), wouldn’t it be met with an entirely different view? Albeit, neither of those gentlemen was ever attempting to take over the Earth…at least as far I know. But can we ever really know another person? I digress.
However, my point remains the same. We all have a glorious purpose in life and we should strive to meet it head on…fulfill it, whatever it might be. So long as Earth domination is not key to the plan.
And here are the rules for the Quote Challenge:
- Post your three favorite quotes, one on each day, for three consecutive days. The quote can be from any book, author, or your own quote.
- Tag three other bloggers with each post to challenge them.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Along with other bloggers I’ve seen though who have done this challenge, I’ve decided to ignore rule #2. No one likes to be ignored at the party (and quite frankly, all of the blogs I follow are amazing, which is why I follow them), so I’m extending an open invitation to this challenge for anyone who reads this and would like to participate. So – have at it!
