“A rising tide lifts all the boats.”
~ New England Council Chamber of Commerce slogan
(associated with John F. Kennedy, who often used it)
Stormie Steele has invited me to participate in a 3-day quote challenge, which I’ve gladly accepted.
In turn, I invite Ann at Mindfulness through a Lens, Mary at Walking my Path and Robin at Breezes at Dawn to join me. No pressure to accept, however!
Participant Requests: Post an inspirational, uplifting quote for three consecutive days, and invite three other bloggers to join you.
Great photo Eliza and very apt for your chosen quote too.
Thanks, Julie! 🙂
Love the quote and the photo. Great pairing. 🙂 And yes, I do feel like playing along. Thanks for inviting me. 😀
Oh, goody, I love your quotes! 🙂 Thanks, Robin!
Ooooh. Kennedy. Interesting. I associate this with the Reagan years, so it gives me a rather visceral reaction, as the rising tide lifted the rich, ran up the debt and swamped the rest of us. I must research how Kennedy used this. I always wondered where it came from. Good for you for spurring the investigation!
Funnily enough, I think of it most often in terms of collective consciousness! 😀
I think it goes really well with the water bugs, great choice!
Thanks, Maria. It was the closest photo I have of a boat-like thing! 😉
I’ve always loved that particular quote. And I enjoy those little bugs you’ve chosen to solidify the idea. Good job! Looking forward to tomorrow’s quote.
Now that I think more about “a rising tide lifting all boats”, I’m reminded that it’s probably wise to let go the tether to the wharf and be lifted, rather than stay tied to the wharf and be drown. Hah!
Yes, best to go with the flow! ;-D Thanks, M!
