I dub this: Day 1

I have been here before, but it always seems new.

Each time I return I always lose my way.

These long halls and endless corridors.

Mirrored walls reflecting back on themselves.

What is held within I will never fully know.

All that lies hidden, I will never fully be shown.

Forever in thought, I am lost in contemplation.

Such is my mind…

I am and so I am

Merci beaucoup !

I was nominated by B the intellect behind Becoming The Muse for this quotes challenge. The topic for this particular challenge is The Art Of Conversation. I can talk to anyone that is easy, but for me to have a conversation with you…

So most of the times I keep my thoughts to myself.

Silence-is-Golden

 

Not because I have nothing to say,but because I believe as a species we (are losing) have lost the ability to listen.

12-Conversation-Quotes

Rules: 3.2.1 Quote Me!

• Thank the Selector

• Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.

• Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me!’

Note: Although this is the topic for today there is no specific deadline to it, meaning you can answer as and when.

 

Today’s Topic: The Art of Conversation.

“Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.”

– Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Good Morning!” said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.

“What do you mean?” he said. “Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?”

“All of them at once,” said Bilbo. “And a very fine morning for a pipe of tobacco out of doors, into the bargain.

“Good morning!” he said at last. “We don’t want any adventures here, thank you! You might try over The Hill or across The Water.” By this he meant that the conversation was at an end.
“What a lot of things you do use Good morning for!” said Gandalf. “Now you mean that you want to get rid of me, and that it won’t be good till I move off.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
