Quote Challenge: The Green Dog Chronicles


As you well know, each nominee to the QUOTE CHALLENGE is bound by tradition to write three (3) consecutive stories about his/her favorite quotes AND to nominate at least six (6) writers/bloggers who will continue the challenge.

Now, one of my nominees was Maritsa Solares Rico who writes under the nick, The Green Dog Chronicles, My Life in Navia . As previously mentioned, she is a Cuban raised in Spain and has long consider herself an outsider in the country where she grew up. She writes opinionated articles about different issues but several of which are centered toward concerns and challenges being faced by women.

For Day 1 of the Quote Challenge activity, she featured Albert Camus’s:

“Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”

The essence of partnership. Lovely. Find out the other two by clicking this https://greendogchronicles.com/2017/11/10/quote-challenge-day-one/.

For Day 2, she picked Maya Angelou:

“People will forget what you said; people will forget what you did; but, people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Words can make or break a person, what can I say? Oh, do not just stare there. Instead, click this link to read a treat from Simone de Beauvoir and Confucius https://greendogchronicles.com/2017/11/11/quote-challenge-day-two/.

For Day 3, she got Edmund Burke’s:

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Yep. Doing nothing is like being an accomplice to injustice done by oppressors. Read more of her choices thru https://greendogchronicles.com/2017/11/12/quote-challenge-day-three/.
