Hey there. book hoarders!
I hope you are all well. I know that I’m probably a week or two late, but I assure you, the Speedy Quote Sunday hasn’t vanished. I actually love doing this post. I get to share some wonderful lines from books I’ve read and enjoyed! It’s a great way to connect with you guys and share what I’ve taken away from such well-placed lines from books. As a bonus, it’s also quick and doesn’t steal too much from your day. Without further adieu…
“I’m afraid of time. I mean, I’m afraid of not having enough to. Not enough time to understand people, how they really are, or to be understood myself. I’m afraid of the quick judgments and mistakes that everybody makes. You can’t fix them without time. I’m afraid of seeing snapshots instead of movies.” (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Ann Brashares)
This is from a recent book review I did. I feel absolutely in love with the writing and style as much as I did the story. Light and loving and thoughtful. It really brought me back to a place where fear and anger were banished by hope and possibilities. It’s been a long time. And this quote really had me looking back on some of the spots of my life.
“It’s somewhere in the unforeseen when the best, most important moments of our lives seem to happen.” (Beautiful Redemption, Jamie McGuire)
Also, from a recent review, this was a surprising one. From a book that was fast-paced, non-stop intensity came a soft and slow ending. It was so well-placed and beautiful. Such a realization is always a delightful one. You take that one second, or even a minute, and look back and you find that when you were going through rough waters there was something there to hold onto.
More ot come soon…
