What is your favorite quote? What words in it make it your favorite quote?
Prepare for the Writing Challenge
During Words Matter Week, we host a writing challenge. Each day we will post a question on our blog and various social media outlets.
Respond to the question on your blog or social media page (be sure to include #WMW2023 in your response), and then link back to it in the comments of the corresponding article on the NAIWE blog. For each challenge you respond to, you will receive one entry (and a bonus entry for each response written on your NAIWE blog).
At the end of the week, we will have a drawing, and one person will win a fabulous prize, along with a mention and link in the next newsletter.

“There is no greater joy in life than to believe you can’t do something only to discover you can.”
Joy, can’t, discover, can
Steve Gansen says
My favorite quote hearkens to my family’s ancestry on the Emerald Isle. And with March being Irish American Heritage Month, it has special significance:
“A family of Irish birth will argue and fight, but let a shout come from without, and see them all unite.”
The words that make it my favorite quote are “family of Irish birth,” a poetic way of distilling the connectedness of bloodline to land and place, and the rhyming words “fight” and “unite,” which offer a perfect summation of the Irish experience.
