Hello everyone! (Sorry for kind of neglecting you for…a long time. Bad manners on my part.) However, I now return to you with another Thursday Quotables. What do you think I should do if I continue with this feature and eventually have to be like Thursday Quotables (the thirty-fourth)? Maybe it’s just me, but thirty-fourth seems to be a bit of a mouthful.
Thursday Quotables is a weekly (or in my case, biweekly) feature in which you can share a favorite quote (or several) from your recent reads. Lisa at Bookshelf Fantasies hosts this feature and the details of participation are on her blog.
The quotes of this week are from…
Matched, by Ally Condie
Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.
A rather bittersweet look back on friendship.
Is falling in love with someone’s story the same thing as falling in love with the person himself?
I like this one because, as a reader, I frequently fall in love with stories. It’s interesting to think on the distinction between who we are now and why we are who we are. Meeting a person for the first time is like coming into contact with the top of an iceberg. It might be a wonderful experience, but you don’t know what shaped them, what they’re thinking. You don’t see all that’s beneath the surface, and that’s the biggest part of them.
What did these quotes make you think of?
