Quote Challenge Day 3

Thanks to alceptress for nominating me!

For my final quote, we turn to music, and a hard rock band called Alter Bridge:

“We have our misfortunes,
the darkest of days,
but we must endure and keep strong.
Just look to the morning,
the promise awaits,

just pay no mind at all.
Keep rolling —
rolling —
Life must go on.”

– Alter Bridge, “Life Must Go On”

This applies to anything — from sports to writing to whatever your passion may be. There are no shortcuts; we have to put in the work.

Today I’m nominating Blooming Laura and anotetohuguette. The rules: post three quotes across three different days, link to my blog, and nominate two new bloggers, if you choose to do so 🙂

Missed part one? Check it out here. Stay turned for part three!

– Katie McGarry, Nowhere But Here
