- Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).
- Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Actually, I have participated in an open 3-Day Quote Challenge by Matthew from Matt-In-The-Hat. But I have yet to finish that as I am still on my first quote. My bad. And so I’m nominated by Kataku from Ahobakataku of the same challenge – which I will gladly do both as I have quite a few of my favorite quotes from the anime and manga/manwha I have watched and read. I just didn’t have the sweetest time to compose the post. Forgive me. So here’s my first quote for you guys:
When you feel your life’s on the line, your true nature surfaces. – Shinichi Izumi, Parasyte – The Maxim
An undeniably true statement. It is our human nature to engage in battle whenever we feel threatened by certain stimuli. These triggers may not necessarily be bigger or stronger than us. They may come to us as the most ordinary thing or circumstance – the heat of the sun, drops of rain, sound of thunder, sight of lightning, speed of the wind, a pat on the back, a tickle on the foot, footsteps of your mom, a call from your dad, water on the floor, a dead cockroach in your bed and even the sound of our own snore. They may be at their most normal forms but if something within us snaps, these norms would suddenly just become threats in our eyes causing us to act without thinking – thus showing a personality whose existence is not known to us, or perhaps known but has been suppressed for various reasons. But I am not saying that something like this is a bad thing. It can’t always be a bad thing. What I am saying is that human really is an admirable being – multifaceted being.
So much about my admiration towards humans, I thank Kataku for nominating me. XD This is also one way of expressing my thoughts in a light way. So if you guys want to check out her 3-Day Quote Challenge post as well, just click here. She talked about failing and not giving up. Pretty applicable. 😉
She asked me three nominees but I’ll be breaking the rule and nominate only one. XD So I nominate Kira from Frog in a Well.
