Quote Challenge Day 3

sailing on the Baltic Sea - hard to beatToday’s quote, my final one for this brief challenge, brings me back to sailing, water and oceans. It is, however, not about the beauty of the oceans or the joys of sailing. I keep this in mind when thinking of (or doing something about) pollution, waste in oceans and environmental difficulties.

The quote refers to lots and lots of different scenarios. Meaning: for each and every time when we feel that what we are doing is nothing but a drop of water on a hot stone. Or, as Mother Teresa has put it, a drop in an ocean. However, every little action helps, every step, move and smile results in something positive. Andnd that’s why ‘doing something’ is much better than thinking “it won’t matter anyway”. Here we go:

We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.     (Mother Teresa)

To close this challenge for me, today I’ll nominate three more sailing (crews) from all over the world, as I am sure they love the water, the ocean and everything related to it as much as I do.

Josie from A Family Afloat
Maria and Patrick from Sailing Mareda
Judith from Einfach Segeln

It would be great if you were to take on the challenge, and if you do so please post three quotes on three days, and each time suggest three fellow bloggers to continue in the same manner.

  1. Good reminder ! Mother Teresa was very inspiring, her life is a testament to giving and to loving. It is good to keep in mind that it is not the amount of action that counts, but the action, something to start with, something to contribute with .. that we all have a power to contribute to the making it all better. Excellent quote again, and picture! I need to come up with another challenge for you sometimes, you did really great! Thanks for sharing it all with us 🙂

    1. many thanks for your thoughts, glad you liked the challenge results. It was rather interesting being “forced” to write something, and knowing you’d come along to read it was an extra incentive! 😉
      Your blog is a joy to follow – even without challenge!!
