3 Days, 3 Quotes: More Than Just Puns

The third and last day of this wonderful tag. Apparently, all good things must come to an end. But if somebody tagged me again, I would have no choice but to do it again… right? I would very much welcome another three days of sharing words and sentences with you guys.

I stumbled upon a book last December which is Seeking Hydra by Peter Edwards in Little Fears‘ blogand it was a lovely little book of puns with several interesting characters and artwork. I even posted a review about it in my little book blog. I thoroughly enjoyed the collection of 90 short stories and entries dedicated to making me smirk, laugh or just sigh. Puns are after all intended for a humorous or a rhetorical effect.

But there was one wordplay that left me in awe of its usage:

“So you exist, in a substantial physical form, taking up space around you atomically.”

“I guess,” replied Hydra. “What does that mean?”

“You matter.”

So, if you’re sitting there holding your phone or in front of your laptop reading this, you exist in a substantial physical form and that means – YOU MATTER!

Me after reading this quote and probably you too…?


• Thank the person who nominated you.
• Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day, can be a super short post).
• Nominate three new bloggers each day.

Hi friends! Care to do this? I tag: Oishi, Ameithyst, and Tara

And that’s it for the 3 days, 3 quotes tag. I very much enjoyed writing the short and sweet posts. Thank you again, Auri!

  1. No….😭😭😭 These days all I seem to be doing is crying on WordPress…so no I am not crying….really..I am not….😭😭😭 (Besides I am a man and we are not supposed to cry are we???🙈🙈). Oh well…I am not ashamed to say that I cry all the time lol.
    This was a beautiful quote though. Too bad it’s already day 3 now. Really enjoyed this series of posts 😊

    1. No. Real men do cry!! It’s totally fine. And I’m a crybaby too and that’s okay too. We can be crybuddies if you want.
      I know! I was totally floored by this brilliant usage of the word. Kudos to the author who- oh wait I forgot to link their blog!
      I will be continuing it in ‘the quote hoarder’ feature probably every thursday so rest assured there are more short but sweet posts (but sadly not a tag). ^^ Thank you for always stopping by!

      1. Yeah, they always say that men are not supposed to cry, but I always though that was really stupid anyway. So never took much notice, and continued to cry either way lol.
        Hah, phew cool: glad to hear I can cry, and we can be cybuddies lol. Yeah this really is truly beautiful quote! And it’s nice to know that there will be more quotes heading our way. Thanks! 😊

  2. Puns….
    So many puns….

    I don’t know why, but they make me cringe a lot ;-;
    Anyways, I’ll keep that aside and focus on the fact that I Matter, Yes! I do!!!

    It has been a blast, Chizu! I would love to see more of these in the near future.
