Happy BLOGMAS day 7!
I’ve posted in the past about my favorite book quotes. Many a book has been read since then, and I’m excited to give you all an updated list! I still stick by the old quotes though. Here are the old posts, if you’re interested:
“Of all that we’re asked to give others in this life, the most difficult to offer may be forgiveness.” – This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger
“Love comes in many forms, and pain is no different.” – This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger
“Never underestimate the passion of a lonely mind.” – The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish
“We therefore are creatures determined by nature, lacking will of our own.” – The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish
“There is a hole where my heart once was. In its place, your history.” – The Weight of Ink by Rachel Kadish
“I think we should all work hard to ensure that substance matters more than labels—that’s the society I strive to live in.” – Letters from an Astrophysicist by Neil deGrasse Tyson
“One can be ready to give up the children one always wanted, one can be ready to withstand remarks about one’s past, or one’s clothes, but then-a tiny remark and the soul deflates and says: Oh.” – My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout
“It may be the luckiest and purest thing of all to see time sharpen to a single point. To feel the world rise up and shake you hard, insisting that you rise, too, somehow. Someway. That you come awake and stretch, painfully. That you change, completely and irrevocably—with whatever means are at your disposal—into the person you were always meant to be.” – Love and Ruin by Paula McLain
“So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?” – All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
“You could go to war with the world, but the world would always win.” – The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan
