Positive Sparks Monday - A Word From the Wise

David Bowie was a great musician and also quite the philosopher. I like many of his numerous quotes from over the years. This one just speaks to the spirit of the day.

“I've never responded well to entrenched negative thinking.” – David Bowie

Thanks to Brainy Quote for this. And to the lovely Annie of McGuffy's Reader for starting the sparks idea. Let's all try to bring a little positive energy into the world!

What's your favorite David Bowie stage persona?



  1. Definitely a true creative talent! I like the quote.

  2. Oh, my word. This is a great quote. I relate. Thank you for adding this to Sparks. My favourite Bowie persona was the Labrynth Goblin King. I also loved Thomas Jerome Newton, The Man Who Fell to Earth. HUGS!

  3. What a great quote. This is spot on and it so applies. I don't think any of us do.

    Have a fabulous and positive day. ☺

  4. Great quote by one of my favorite people!
    Thanks for sharing it!

  5. Great spark! I always liked his music.

  6. That's a great quote.

    I guess I'll always be partial to "Blue Jean". That song came out when I was the right age, I guess.

    1. Excellent tune. "Let's Dance" is a personal favorite of mine. Be well!

  7. I never thought of David Bowie as a philosopher, but like his quote very much. I think our culture is definitely suffering from entrenched negative thinking. Hopefully, Sparks can help alleviate this as we all strive to be bearers of light.

  8. Bowie was certainly an interesting person. - The quote is a good one.

  9. Loved David Bowie and this quote is a really good one.
