Come one, come all, to the greatest show on Earth! Okay, so it’s the greatest Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge challenge on Earth. Some people can be so literal. Oh yeah, this is a literary type challenge. Go figure.
If you missed out on reading last week’s entries for the theme of Memories, click here to go there. And if you are a participant you really should be visiting all your fellow entrants.
It’s easy to join in:
This weeks theme is:
“There can be hope only for a society which acts as one big family, not as many separate ones.” Anwar Sadat
From Wikipedia: Muhammad Anwar el-Sadat (Arabic: محمد أنور السادات Muḥammad Anwar as-Sādāt Egyptian Arabic pronunciation: [mæˈħæmmæd ˈʔɑnwɑɾ essæˈdæːt]; 25 December 1918 – 6 October 1981) was the third President of Egypt, serving from 15 October 1970 until his assassination by fundamentalist army officers on 6 October 1981. Sadat was a senior member of the Free Officers who overthrew King Farouk in the Egyptian Revolution of 1952, and a close confidant of President Gamal Abdel Nasser, under whom he served as Vice President twice and whom he succeeded as President in 1970.
From the strangest places comes the most appropriate quotes for US social circumstances. After seeing this quote I think it only natural to take a step back from everything going on in the US and other parts of the world and think, “What on earth are we doing?”
We for some reason think of ourselves as better than other nations in many ways, yet we head down similar paths of nations who had disasters. But who will admit there is a faulty outlook in the situation? Both sides are wrong, but neither will admit it.
See you in the comments!
Remember, Colleen and I alternate weeks here on her blog hosting the challenge.
“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”
