This week is it Oneta’s turn and she has provided us with a very thought provoking quote:

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” Helen Keller

What follows is my response:

“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.”  George Eliot

David quietly gathered his stones, one by one by one.  He carefully chose them.  He held them in his hand and measured their shape and weight.

The Israelites were confused.  David had challenged Goliath to meet for combat in the morning.  Whatever could he be doing paying so much attention to those small stones?  He must be mad.

Goliath spent the night laughing and drinking and boasting about his soon to be success in the morning.  His raucus laughter and loud boasting could be heard in the camp of the Israelites and caused terror amongst them.

But still David quietly went about the business of the stones.

In the morning David loaded one of his carefully chosen stones in his sling and Goliath fell.  The Israelites were saved by a boy and a small stone.


We are continuing the same format here and that is: there are no rules to follow. Either make up your own sayings  or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.

Each Thursday, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate!

On your own blog post do a pingback to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post. A pingback is when you embed (or copy) the URL of my weekly prompt into your own blog post.

Make sure to check our weekly prompt to see if your entry is there. You can copy URL of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.

Copy the badge above and include it on your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “The Writer’s Quote Challenge,” so we can find the posts in the reader.

 We are still welcoming co-hosts.  Come and join in the fun.


I can’t wait to read your posts,




About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.
