3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 2



Secondly, I happened to follow the Marnie Writes blog, and I wanted to do this challenge.


  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day) (I’m going to fail – I’m doing a Monday-Wednesday-Friday).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day (Whatever we’ll see)

My Quote:

In a life rich with national partying and spontaneous murder, Jackson’s only regret was that he didn’t kill quite enough people. People like John C. Calhoun, who was Jackson’s Vice President.” — Dan O’Brien

I’m a pretty big fan of Andrew Jackson.  Not his policies, but just in how interesting and filled with utter lunacy that guy was.  Daniel O’Brian, of old-school Cracked.com fame, wrote How to Fight Presidents and made the video above as a sort of teaser for it.  I thought he captured the exact spirit of why I liked learning about Jackson in high school, and why I think he’s still crazy interesting now.

Also, ‘MURICA!

My Tags:

First off, please – if you’re tagged, don’t feel pressure to reply or participate.  If you’re reading, these are good blogs to follow.

I’ll tag E. Kathryn, who has a book that’s NEARLY FINISHED!  She also likes some tag games, and maybe this is something she’d enjoy (for Twitter if not for blogging).

Next, I’ll mention the Random Blog.  As a book blogger, Hannah J. Russel probably knows a lot of good quotes.  She has a lot of manga reviews, too, and I hope to look at some of her suggestions!

Biswadeep of the Pretentious Panda’s Blog has a lot of quick stories that I really enjoy.  He also curates some interesting life stories and quotes, so I’ll tag him in case he wants to participate.

    I feel like our tour guide in one of the cemeteries in New Orleans needs to see this video. He spent way too long talking about how much of a national hero Jackson was! He mentioned the whole slavery part (sort of) but neglected to address the Trail of Tears and pretty much everything else!

    Apologies for not commenting sooner! I hit a busy couple weeks, but I’m kind of glad I got delayed so I could complain about the tour lol.
