John Keats
“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”
John Keats, Bright Star: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawne

Vera Nazarian
“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:

1. Acceptance
2. Understanding
3. Appreciation

Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.

Which, by the way, is something highly inadvisable. Think about it — do you really want to live in a world of only two dimensions?

So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Neil Gaiman
“You're a poem?' I repeated.

She chewed her lower lip. 'If you want. I am a poem, or I am a pattern, or a race of people whose whose world was swallowed by the sea.'

'Isn't it hard to be three things at the same time?'

'What's your name?'


'So you are Enn,' she said. 'And you are a male. And you are a biped. Is it hard to be three things at the same time?”
Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders

Neil Gaiman
“We do not always remember the things that do no credit to us. We justify them, cover them in bright lies or with the thick dust of forgetfulness. All of the things that Shadow had done in his life of which he was not proud, all the things he wished he had done otherwise or left undone, came at him then in a swirling storm of guilt and regret and shame, and he had nowhere to hide from them. He was as naked and as open as a corpse on a table, and dark Anubis the jackal god was his prosector and his prosecutor and his persecutor.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Jeffrey Fry
“Great leadership involves three things. The ability to realize when you are wrong, a willingness to learn from it, and an eagerness to change course if necessary.”
Jeffrey Fry

“Lesson number one, she muttered, love is beyond your grasp. Lesson two: nowhere is it written that you're guaranteed fairness. And three: there's only right and wrong.”
Sandy Blair, A Man In A Kilt


Three things have a limited threshold:
Time, pain, and death.
While truth, love, and knowledge –
Are boundless.

Three things are needed
For humanity to co-exist:
Truth, peace and basic needs.
Everything else -
Is irrelevant.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

James C. Dobson
“21. Take in a great breath of air and then blow it out. Contained in that single breath were at least three nitrogen atoms that were breathed by every human being who ever lived, including Jesus Christ, William Shakespeare, Winston Churchill, and every president of the United States. This illustrates the fact that everything we do affects other people, positively or negatively. That’s why it is foolish to say, “Do your own thing if it doesn’t hurt anybody else.” Everything we do affects other people.”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: The Next Generation's Guide to a Meaningful Future

“Three things are needed
For humanity to co-exist:
Truth, peace and basic needs.
Everything else -
Is irrelevant.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Marie D. F. Cachet
“If we look at our traditional tales, where the action before the final success always occurs three times: the last of the three times is always a little longer because it includes success: life is somehow the famous 0.142592653589793 after three....These stories are a kind of mythical Pi, that we finally 'mathematified', quantified by numbers. That's why the number Pi was and is so important. It explains the inexplicable, life, eternity, infinity, and at the same time the cycle of rebirth.”
Marie Cachet

“The Fates – or Moirai – are a group of three weaving goddesses who assign individual destinies to mortals at birth. Their names are Clotho (the Spinner), Lachesis (the Alloter) and Atropos (the Inflexible).

Zeus, Poseidon, Hades.

If not two, then three. Stability.”

Steven Magee
“If something is worth saying, it is worth saying three times over.”

You never know which face they are using!”

“Two to three hours of studying a night,
Is good medicine for the soul,
I have tried this remedy,
It never grows old”

Anne-Marie Slaughter
“influence flows across networks up to three degrees away. What your friends’ friends eat or do or think will influence what you eat or do or think—but further connections will not.”
Anne-Marie Slaughter, The Chessboard and the Web: Strategies of Connection in a Networked World

Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt
“С „различна“ обозначаваше пропастта, която виждаше вежду собствените си радости и тези на другите, самотата, която усещаше, докато хората говореха за нещата, които ги вълнуваха, и неохотата й да изрази мисълта си, която хората така и не разбираха.”
Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt

Liz Braswell
“Aurora Rose looked back and forth among the three women, gladly distracted from the sad events by the puzzle before her. The fairies in real life had their own personalities, of course, despite their superficial similarities as ageless, chatty, loving aunt figures. Flora tended to try to lead and make decisions for them. Merryweather seemed to understand the basic workings of the world better, although she rarely acted on this knowledge and instead chose to comment snarkily on it. Sometimes she got sneaky and went behind Flora's back. Fauna was the one who hugged the princess the most and often acted as an intermediary between the other two.
The green one, "Fauna," seemed more concerned with how Aurora Rose was feeling- how 'everyone' was feeling. She was the one who had been waiting outside the cottage for the prince and princess. Like she was the one who 'cared.'
And the blue one- "Merryweather"- seemed 'incredibly' quick-minded and brilliant. And even snarkier.
"Flora" was brave and powerful and ready to plunge into any physical combat. And not for nothing, she was built like a gladiator.
They were 'all' acting like extreme versions of their real selves.”
Liz Braswell, Once Upon a Dream

Kate Morton
“Rule number three: only three may play. No more, no less. Three. A number favored as much by art as by science: primary colors, points required to locate an object in space, notes to form a musical chord. Three points of a triangle, the first geometrical figure. Incontrovertible fact: two straight lines cannot enclose a space. The points of a triangle may move, shift allegiance, the distance between two disappear as they draw away from the third, but together they always define a triangle. Self-contained, real, complete.”
Kate Morton, The House at Riverton

“Living like a cat
Bold, proud and free
Multiplies yours
in a threefold three!

Viver uma vida
como um gato
multiplica a sua
o dobro de quatro!”

Steven Magee
“Is it better to buy a new or a three year old car? Cars typically become unreliable after a decade of use. You are only seven years away from that point at three years old.”
Steven Magee

“Sets of 3 will always reveal the humor, or the disaster ...and often God's plan.”
