Hey there, book wanderers!
I hope you guys are doing well. It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for the Speedy Quote Sunday. Here, I get to share a couple of quotes from books I’ve read and possibly enjoyed in a quick fashion. I get excited about sharing these because I get to share a little about myself. These are parts that I found to be either inspirational, funny, fantastic, or they reflected a part of me or held wisdom. They were special and maybe they’ll be special for you. Maybe you’ve read these books and have a favorite line yourself or you may find yourself intrigued enough to add the book to your TBR.
This Sunday, I was inspired and found admiration in a couple of lines from books that clung to the emotional power of friendship. While friendship can act as a supportive foundation in any almost every book, in these two, friendship took the main stage. They supplied a great reminder of why they’re so important and how they can shape our lives.
“Fine, blood was thicker than water. But friendship, it struck Tibby, was thicker than both.” (The Second Summer of the Sisterhood, Ann Brashares)
This has been such a great series that reminded me of the light and importance of the friendship I carry. It wasn’t cheesy or over the top. Friendships can be messy and they are absolute when you’ve found the right ones. The rights ones, I’ve learned, are the ones that after the mess, come back. They don’t give in. They embrace the ever-changing dimension of who you are.
“Your mind could tell you who to hate or respect or envy, but only your body—your nostrils and your mouth and the wide, blank canvas of your skin—could tell you who to love.” (we all looked up, Thomas Wallach)
This one hit pretty close because this looked inside oneself and the realm of friendship rather than out in the friendship zone. There’s not a moment I don’t imagine how and who I am and this line took me there. It’s not that I question myself. I just check in.
More to come soon…
