My dear Halee from 2blueeyes challenged me, some time ago I have to admit, for a 3 day quoting series. Thanks to her  I can do something I was dreaming of. I’ll invite you to be my guests at a very honorable coffee round. We are meeting with three writers I admire for their savior vivre, their wit and of cause for their writings. As the gentlemen are not contemporary writers the place to meet would be an old fashioned coffee house in a style of the traditional Vienna cafes or Parisian tea rooms where the small and important things got discussed over a small black coffee or an Earl Grey tea.

Rules for the Quote Challenge

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog post
  • Post 1-3 quotes a day for 3 consecutive days
  • Nominate 3 blogger each day

Today’s nominees are:

Please join me to meet Oscar Wilde, Lord Byron and Aldous Huxley. The conversation is progressing and all gentlemen agree that the world they have known is not getting wiser today. Men still doing the same mistakes and just a few seems to learn from history.
That’s when Oscar Wilde is mentioning

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

 

Aldous Huxley agrees

Facts don’t cease to exist because they are ignored.

And Lord Byron claims

In secret we met – In silence I grieve, – That thy heart could forget, – Thy spirit deceive.

At that point of the conversation the hot black coffee was served and the topic changed to discuss the great invention mankind has done since…
