Tuesday's Questions Best Answer!

Who Won? 
Hello and welcome to Tuesday's Question.  I began asking questions in 2007 to get to know my readers and I've been asking them on and off ever since.

The idea to get to know the people who were visiting my blog by asking questions, worked, but lately, I realized that I was the one asking all the questions.

In the beginning I thought the questions would stimulate conversation and they did, but most of the time it was a one-sided conversation, meaning, everyone was answering my question.

Besides, I've been questioning my visitors for so long, I decided to spice up Tuesday's Question a bit and choose a best answer and the winner would have the opportunity to ask the next week's question and choose the next best answer, and so on...

The first person, and now, co-author of A Nice Place In The Sun, to win Best Answer To Tuesday's Question, was Sandee of Comedy Plus, who asked an excellent Tuesday's Question last week.

This was before I had all of the particular's aired out, meaning, Sandee should have had the opportunity to pick the next best answer, so if our winner from last week's Tuesday's Question would rather not choose who wrote the best answer it will be up to Sandee to decide.

So, are you ready to know who wrote the best answer?

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination


Written for Ann

Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
