Three Days, Three Quotes; Breaking the Rules

Meditations in Motion

I have been nominated by The Britchy One and Anita Bowden, both enormously talented writers, to participate in the Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge. I have already participated in this challenge, so for this second time around, I am going to break the rules (Yes, that’s me – the rule-breaker!)

Here are the typical rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post one quote per day over three days.
  • Nominate 3 blogs per day to take part in the challenge.

Here are my version of the rules:

  • Thank you so much, Anita and Britchy! I am honored that you thought about me when making your nominations.
  • I am going to post all three quotes in one day (today).
  • I nominate everyone who is reading this blog who would like to participate. Really. Try it, it’s fun!

All of the quotes are by Paul Tillich, a 20th century theologian whom I admire immensely for his intellect and his faith.

Meditations in Motion

On doubt: “Faith includes courage. Therefore, it can include the doubt about itself.”

Meditations in Motion

On holiness: “There is no conditional way of reaching the unconditional; there is no finite way of reaching the infinite.”

Meditations in Motion

On the dynamics of faith: ” The human heart seeks the infinite because that is where the finite wants to rest. In the infinite it sees its own fulfillment.”




  1. I like the way you tweaked the rules. Three in one day, not a bad idea. I figure these challenges are here to be fun, therefore we should bend the rules as required.
