Speedy Quote Sunday

Hey there, book lovers!

Every other week, I share a couple of lines from books I’ve read (and possibly enjoyed). I think it’s a great way to not only reflect on books that have some sort of impact but also on life in general. Some are fantastic and some not so much. They can make you laugh and contemplate, and leave a meaningful imprint we probably don’t think too much about, and I love that.

This Sunday, I’ve got Neil Gaiman for you. It’s been a little while since I’ve revisited his works. Though he tackles mythos with grandeur, he offers an overlay of humor and approaches it from a modern perspective. The Sandman is only one of his latest works to be adapted into a series. I’m hoping the ones will be considered at some point. I think The Ocean at the End of the Lane would make for a beautiful movie.

Have a great week and stay swanky, book humes.

“Small children believe themselves to be gods, or some of them do, and then can only be satisfied when the rest of the world goes along with their way of seeing.” (The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neil Gaiman)

Oh, how very true. Whether with your own kids or others, this is how kids are with a whole world they’re discovering as they grow up. They just want everyone to see how they see and it’s amazing.

“When something goes wrong, the first thing I always think is, it is Loki’s fault. It saves a lot of time.” (Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman)

This was such a fun collection to read. I love Gaiman’s take on Norse mythos. It’s refreshing and filled to the brim with humor. And, with this line, he’s not wrong. We always look at Loki when something goes wrong. Blame him because it’s in his nature and he’s usually always the one that makes trouble.

More to come soon…
