This is the third day of the 3 Day 3 Quote Challenge and InCahootsWithMuddyBoots challenged me, so of course I had to accept this tag. Since this is a New York centric blog, the quotes will be all about my city.
The rules for the challenge are:
- Post on three consecutive days
- Post one to three quotes on each day
- Challenge three different bloggers on each day
I am nominating these three bloggers:
And here are my last quotes:

I didn’t have any supposedly sacred piece of land or shoals of friends to leave behind.

― Kurt Vonnegut,
