Perfect Words tag

Hi Readers

I just got tagged  by Alison for something called Perfect Words.

The challenge: select and share three of your favorite textual passages, where you feel the author found the ‘perfect words’.  Then tag your friends!


Number one is from The Penultimate Peril by Lemony Snicket

"Certain people have said that the world is like a calm pond, and that anytime a person does even the smallest this, it is as if a stone has dropped into the pond, spreading circles of  ripples further and further out until the entire world has been changed by one tiny action"

And of course, being Lemony Snicket he then tells you to drop the book in a pond.

Number two is some very good advice from Lewis Carroll in Through the Looking Glass

"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast!"

Believing in impossible things is a very good practice indeed

And last of all, an author famous for perfect words - Shakespeare! (Romeo and Juliet)

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"

Very true.

Now I have to tag someone. The only person I can think of who hasn't been tagged is:
 Kathy Tainsh at Three Little Chickens

Thanks for reading!
