Let's Play!

After being inspired by George's post at Transit Notes yesterday (read it here), I decided to return to some more playful postings.  Here is a little Sunday word-play game for you.  

 Two quotations appear below, jumbled by Wordle.  Can you organize them into the original quote and post it in the comment section?  I will post the actual quotes on Tuesday.  I challenge you to resist reading the other comments before you post yours!  :-)

 I am going to do more of these and plan to make them progressively harder.  So dive in and get some practice now.  No prizes this time around, but when we get to some difficult ones I will be offering a photograph print for the first to get it right.  Stay tuned! 


(IMPORTANT:    When a word appears two or three times in the quote - such as 'it', 'the', 'and', 'you', - it can still only appear once in the Wordle image - so feel free to use some of the words more than once in your response if needed.)

  2. You have the spirit of the quote by Jung - but it is a bit off.

    Oh my, I didn't think of how a 37 year old male might interpret a random scattering of words! Hope you had fun!

  3. The only way to overcome suffering is to endure it.

    Anything I try to sequence in the Buddhist proverb are nonsense. :)

    Play on, Bonnie. Thanks to George for an injection of childlike behavior!

  4. Great idea, Bonnie! The second one seems relatively easy, but I could be wrong: "The only way to overcome suffering is to endure it." Carl Jung

    The first -- I'm not sure yet, but will be back to you.

  5. As to the first, my guess is: "Buddhist Proverb: There are many jewels in the mouth of the dragon."

    Thanks for being so creative and stimulating, Bonnie. This is fun!

  10. Ok, let's see if I can get these...

    There are many jewels in the mouth of the dragon. - Buddhist Proverb

    The only way to overcome suffering is to endure it. -Carl Jung

    Honestly, I have no idea what the first one even means and I'm semi-aware of Buddhist proverbs!
