Three Day Quote Challenge – Day 3

The final day of the challenge is here and the quote I selected is from Neihtn’s Village Teacher. Neihtn is the pen name of a Vietnamese-American writer, Nguyễn Trọng Hiền.

“The footprints never overlapped or touched one another, but there was no doubt that they were walking close together and going forward in the same general direction. They turned around once more and resumed their walk.”

Neihtn, Village Teacher

Today’s special nominee is Sue from WordsVisual – if and whenever you feel like sharing a few quotes with us, Sue. Anyone else who wants to participate is also welcome.

In the end, I would like to share a bonus quote – a well-known one, this time.

“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

  1. such a ponderous feeling with that first quote (makes me want more from that author) and the ending quote – well-known but I did not seem to know it – maybe I heard it way back when – but that is one that needs to be put on a banner these days.
    especially here in the States where folks are sometimes still so racially divided.

    1. I think there’s a lot of that going on everywhere these days… I knew the quote for a long time, but I was recently reminded of it in a book I was reading. Somehow, it just stuck, it felt so descriptive for the current situation.
