A Quote So Sad, Tragic, and Yet So Beautiful Too

Day two of the 3 Days 3 Quotes challenge, and after what seems like forever choosing a quote, I have finally (FINALLY!) settled on one 😀 This is such a fun and exciting challenge, I’m just so thrilled to be able to take part in it, so I’d like to give a big thank you again to Irena for nominating me and giving me this wonderful opportunity 😀

If you haven’t read my previous article basically this challenge has 3 rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you

2. Post three different quotes in three consecutive days

3. Nominate three new bloggers each day

The first quote I posted was from the wonderful tale Of Beren and Lúthien, from The Silmarillion, and you can find it in the link above. Today I thought I would choose quite a different quote, from another literary legend- F. Scott Fitzgerald. This quote comes from my favourite novel from Fitzgerald- The Great Gatsby.

The Great Gatsby is so beautiful, yet so tragic. This is one of the countless wonderful quotes in the novel, but it has to be my favourite. The idea of being unable to recover the past, unable to repeat it again, is one that appears and disappears throughout the text. There is something so sad in the last line “But they made no sound, and what I had almost remembered was uncommunicable forever” and yet it is so true, and maybe that just makes it more heartbreaking, but perhaps what I love about this quote, and The Great Gatsby in general, is that Fitzgerald can make something so sad sound so beautiful.

The final part of the challenge is nominating three bloggers, and, like yesterday, I’m so stuck for choice because there are so many incredible bloggers out there who I’d love to hear from, but today I nominate these wonderful people: Grady P BrownThe Girl in the Little black Dress and Stuart M. Perkins. Of course, there is no pressure at all to do this tag, but you are all fantastic writers and it would be interesting to see which quotes you would choose 🙂

What quotes do you personally love? I’d love to hear what you think- just comment below:)

Happy quoting!
