Eclectic Corner #13,  Loyalty –  Quotes


What is Eclectic Corner?

  • Briefly it is a word themed event spanning a month.
  • The first 3 weeks of the month will consist of weekly differing category relating to that word.
  • They are posted each Tuesday.

The 3 parts to each ‘theme/word’  each week over the month will be scheduled as follows:

  • 1st Tuesday of each month, Week 1 = Photography
  • 2nd Tuesday of each month, Week 2 = Poetry or written piece (specifics announced at time)
  • 3rd Tuesday of each month, Week 3 = Favourite related quote
  • Between week 3 & 4 you get the chance to vote 3 times on your favourite posts throughout the month just passed.

Eclectic Corner #13, Loyalty – Photography

I don’t think dogs are the only loyal animal nor pet, but they certainly to me are one of the most top ranking.  I just loved this photograph, the wind was blowing a gale, the man who looked from a different era just sat there on modern technology, notably the mobile phone whilst his dog just sat patiently and with loyalty for him to finish and get moving.  It was a heavy tourist attraction, so people just went by on their day, he had not need to get up and sniff around it seemed, not say hello to anyone else, he was content at his Master’s side.


This is week #3, so we are on quotes.

I invite you to share one of your favourite quotes that relates to loyalty in some way.

“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think. The only thing I am for sure is unsure, and this means I’m growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.”
Jarod Kintz,

I can’t say that I had a favourite quote on loyalty, it was interesting reading through many of them.  However, this one struck me, mainly because it is different and goes from a stance that I for one don’t think of too often, but is true.

We change and morph in life, it is all part of growing and some real or feigned notion of loyalty might be attached by oneself or even others to a particular person or even memory.  As we change things change that is part of life and with this we become dis-attached, certain things become less important as do other things become more important.  I don’t think this is being dis-loyal, do you?

You see, this quote did really get me thinking, what do you think?


Remember you can enter each category of each week as many times as you wish throughout the month, so if you missed photography or writing it’s fine, there is still time until the 18th July when Eclectic Corner #13 finishes.

Voting will be from the 18th July – 22nd July and the Tea Time a little later, being posted on Thursday 23rd July as I then go away on holiday a couple of days after, so Eclectic Corner will take a break for the rest of July and August, re-starting in September 2015.

The Tea Party this month will not have an InLinkz attached as I feel I need to be here to respond and participate fully, which I think over the break I will not be, however, please watch this space as it all re-starts September 2015.

    That really is a quote that makes you think Justine. It’s a brave thing to be loyal to yourself sometimes. And the only sure way to grow. Xx

      yes exactly like they say also if you don’t love yourself who can love you, the same with loyalty but loyalty can be confusing sometimes 🙂 x

    That is a great quote Justine and so very true. As we change we aren’t becoming dis-loyal at all but we are continuing to grow. It does make you think doesn’t it?

      It does and I was thinking about it again last night. Do we confuse sometimes loyalty with obligation, compulsory and what we view morally? I think this can all become intertwined and confuse things along the way. xx
