I was tagged by Annie from McGuffy’s Reader to participate in the Three Day Quote Challenge. Yesterday I presented my first quote, and you can read that post here.

Today I am sharing my second quote in the Three Day Quote Challenge. Each of the quotes I have selected are from Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha). Here’s my second quote:

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

I selected this quote as Tom and I had a candle ceremony as part of our wedding ceremony. Like all couples, we have had our ups and downs through the years. In the 42 1/2 years that we have been married, however, I believe that we have  mostly been happy. That happiness has come from supporting, loving and caring for each other. And I do know that when Tom is happy, I feel happy as well. Just as with a smile being contagious, happiness breeds happiness!

The rules of the challenge are simple. They are as follows:

1.  Post for three consecutive days.
2.  Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3.  Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

Today I am selecting:

Of course, If any of you do not wish to participate, please don’t feel obligated.

I’ll be posting my third quote on Thursday as tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday.
