Three deep thoughts

Deep as the sea, deep as the mind.

Thank you to Leya from To See a World in a Grain of Sand… for thinking of me on Day 1 of her 3 Day Quote Challenge. Her first is by Gandhi and includes this sentence: We need not wait to see what others do. ❤

I shall not nominate anyone – or better, I nominate all who wish to do it – and I’m posting all three quotations today. Better safe than sorry, who knows what happens tomorrow.

There is a Portuguese theme in my quotations – if not in photos, since I haven’t been to Portugal yet – and that’s not a coincidence. Next week the Eurovision Song Contest is taking place there.

So first here is this year’s Slovenian contestant Lea Sirk. I love her as a person, she is the coolest. When she returned home to her two daughters after the Slovenian finale, one of them asked her indignantly why she had won and not another girl that they preferred. 😀

As for the song she is singing this year, it’s not my cuppa and its title is Hvala, ne. /Thank you, no./ Here she is with her version of last year’s winning song for Portugal.

And now to some truths and their illustrations. Be well.


Land was created to provide a place for boats to visit.
Brooks Atkinson (quotation reblogged from the Aveiro post on My guilty pleasures)

Piran, Slovenia.

Words were not given to man in order to conceal his thoughts.
José Saramago

Fishing forbidden. Talamone.

If you don’t write your books, nobody else will do it for you. No one else has lived your life.
José Saramago (both Saramago quotations reblogged from Logical Quotes)

Life in Piran.

  1. I’ve only read one book by Jose Saramago – Blindness – which was brilliant and worthy of many readings. I didn’t know he was Portuguese! I do know he was a blogger though and took it up quite late in life.

  2. I didn’t realise Eurovision was coming up quite so soon! Thanks for the reminder 🙂

    Excellent quotations! I’m going to note down Jose Saramago’s name. Might check out some of his work…

  3. Love the photos! Sorry we missed you in Italy – I honestly had mental plans of stopping in your town on our way north (had it mapped out and everything), but my passenger load and, most importantly, the fact that we missed a turn and got completely re-routed far east of you (!!!) made it impossible the only day we could have tried. 😦 Next time!

    1. Thank you, Lexi! I’ve just read your post and I can see what a great time you had. So impressed with your parents! You’ve seen plenty and made lovely memories. I’m sure you’ll be back and then we can talk. 🙂
