Hello, awesome book nerds!
So, every other Sunday I do a Speedy Quote Sunday. A little something-something to splash up the blog.
We all have those quotes from novels that stick with us and that we live by, sometimes without even knowing it. Or hell, you just love them.
Here are a couple of mine. Maybe you recognize them.
“Mortals are such fragile things. Just tender feeling walking around exposed in their delicate shells…Easy to crush.” (Wicked Lovely, Melissa Marr)
Blunt. Harsh. Straight to the point. We humans are fragile…sadly. BUT that doesn’t stop us from living life and being strong anyway.
“Sanity is not statistical.” (1984, George Orwell)
I wholeheartedly agree with this one. Then again, I also believe that part of me is not sane at all. LOL. Sanity isn’t something you can put numbers to or even use a measuring cup on. I don’t even think therapists can nail it exactly. They just think they can. Which is cool. Whatever pays the bills, right? No, but I do believe they help us figure out some serious shit, so if you have one that’s awesome. They know what they’re talking about…sometimes. But sanity? You’ll spend the rest of your thinking about that one. Or, if you’re like me, you won’t and will go on, letting that freak flag fly.
So while I don’t have a moral from the intense quote from an I-N-T-E-N-S-E book that flips the world upside down, I can say that this is one that resonated because it makes you wonder.
“Why couldn’t my life be a sitcom? Then again, even the Friends crowd had issues.” (The Duff, Kody Keplinger)
Yes, Ross. The finger is pointed at you, and no, I didn’t say which one.
More to come soon…
