Speedy Quote Sunday

Hello, my bookish clan!

Sometimes there are book quotes that linger with you. You’ll look back on them as help bring clarity and meaning to your life. That or they just make you and laughter is the cure for sadness. Do it as often as possible.

“Anything whole can be broken. And anything broken can be put back together again. That is the meaning of Abracadabra. I create what I speak.” (The Rules of Magic, Alice Hoffman)

I love this because nothing is ever permanently broken. Some things take longer to heal than others. Nothing is invincible, especially the heart.

“Secrets have a way of twisting themselves around your heart like a python and choking the joy out of you.” (Willow, V. C. Andrews)

Secrets always feel like this. Ever notice that? No matter if their good or bad, you just want to let them out.

 

“Without hope, people become desperate to escape the pain. They seldom see the rhythms in their own lives, how dark phases come before new beginnings.” (Daughters of the Moon, Lynne Ewing)

There’s always those times that you become hopeless and wondering if things will ever get better, especially if it seems like they never will. Never stop having hope, that what this reminds me of.

Speedy Quote Sunday

Hello, loves!

Today is a special day for me. It’s the magical day in which I go from number 25 to 26. I’m excited to spend it with my mum. I hope you all are having a special day as well! If the 21st is your day of birth as well then happy birthday!

Now, for some beautiful quotes and deep, meaningful, totally humorous (because let’s be honest some of the best book quotes are so great you nearly pee yourself) book quotes!

There are special quotes, moments, feelings that stick with you after reading. They leave fingerprints in your mind for you to remember and carry with you.

 

“As soon as you admitted to loving someone, you suddenly had a lot to lose. You freely gave them a way to hurt you.” (A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares, Krystal Sutherland)

Falling in love is a scary idea. I am 26 years old and have yet to have a first love. I have no idea what it’s like, but I’ve seen it with other people and it is terrifying. That doesn’t mean I’ll push it away if it comes my way, but I am skittish. I’m careful. I don’t want to fuck it the fuck up. I’ve messed around, sure, but the love part is still out there and when it happens I am scared of being hurt. It’s something I’ll have no control over.

 

“I’d built a wall around myself the first day we’d met, but she used a sledgehammer to smash it down and made me care for her.” (Awake, Natasha Preston)

To manage a feat, it’s impeccable. This reached me because I have my own walls. I’m cautious and protective of myself. My wall is named Sarcasm. It’s a comfort zone and I think we all have walls and that they can be important to have if only to have them broken down.

 

“The dead are so close they can hear us.” (The Witching Hour, Anne Rice)

Since we are rearing up on Halloween, has anybody ever thought about this? Ever imagine, or just get that feeling with hair standing on end, that you’re not alone? I’m a believer in ghosties and other supernatural nifties. I’ve had my fair share experiences with ghosts, so I’m always curious to hear from other people about them.

Have a ghost story? Tell me about it!

There are always those quotes that stick with you.

 

“Real love is an investment of yourself. You drop every natural defense you possess and replace it too soon with trust and dependence. Love, or the feelings you will come to call love, can be very, very dangerous.” (The Mirror Sisters, V.C. Andrews)

Love is so complicated and simple at the same time. It takes control when we think we have control of it. Or so I’ve observed.

 

“Free yourself. Have the courage.” (Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future, A.S. King)

Powerful and relatable to many possibilities from politics to religion to yourself in only just five words. For me, stand up for what you believe in and feel free.

 

“The Latin Club is totally evil.” (The Poison Eaters-In Vodka Veritas, Holly Black)

If you’ve ever taken a Latin class you get it. LOL. Feels like you’re summoning the devil.

Everybody has those quotes from books that are memorable and leave prints on their lives. Here are a few of mine.

 

“Noble cuts like a blade to the heart.” (The Dark Calling, Kresley Cole)

Very true. Sometimes doing the right thing, knowing in your bones that it’s all good and should leave you feeling good about it, can leave you feeling broken and hurt because it breaks your heart. It is like a blade and that bitch really hurts. Unlike actually getting stabbed (which I don’t know how it feels) lasts a far shorter time than it does to get emotionally stabbed in the heart.

 

“Thinking of your parents being young is like is like thinking of Winnie-the-Pooh going to the bathroom: just fucking weird.” (Thanks for the Trouble, Tommy Wallach)

There are some things that are just hard to imagine. Winnie-the-Pooh going to the bathroom is one of them. The bear already lacks pants. Just…odd. Thinking about my mom being young? That is a trip to the past I’d love.

 

“It’s not the amount of time that makes something real. It’s what happens in that time.” (Freeks, Amanda Hocking)

This really puts time into a unique perspective. That you shouldn’t race against it, but value it along with everything inside of that time. It’s not limitless and you don’t know when time will just stop.

Hello, book clan!

Hope you’re all having Sunday. This is Speedy Quote Sunday. Here are a few quotes from book that have really stuck with me.

 

“The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.” (The Giver, Lois Lowry)

My heartstrings yanked at this one. Some of my best memories are with those I love dearly like my mom and my best friend. Without them, it’s just me, alone. Sharing those memories keeps me connected to them as well as the world. Like I’ve left a fingerprint in important places: other people’s lives.

 

“A life without love is like a year without summer.” (Love & Gelato, Jenna Evans Walsh)

Summer is my favorite season with autumn right behind it. I live for hot weather and don’t care if I break a sweat. So to live without summer? I could never. But, in comparison to love? At almost 26, I have yet to fall in love. It’s a scary idea honestly. I don’t reject the idea, but it’s just not happened. Not yet. If the way I live now is like not having summer then I look forward to having my summer one day. Whenever it comes.

 

“Fuckstockings, truth is a surly shrew sometimes!” (Fool, Christopher Moore)

Sometimes, this is just how it feels. You try not to feel this way, but you just can’t help it. It just comes out and then suddenly you feel better. It’s okay to laugh afterward. Laughter helps the heart.

Speedy Quote SundayHello, 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.

Hello, my book lovers,

It’s Speedy Quote Sunday. I love sharing the quotes that have made such a moving impression on me. We all have those quotes that stick with us.

 

“Listen and you will learn.” (Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman)

This was one of those ones that if we just did it, we’d get it. Yet, we humans have a bad habit of talking while other people try to tell us things. This was just simple to the point and if you hear Neil Gaiman’s voice in your head, saying it, it’s incredibly wise.

 

“People never really die until you forget about them.” (Christopher’s Diary: Secrets of Foxworth, V.C. Andrews)

I don’t if I believe this, but it was incredibly eerie and chilling to think about. How do we determine when a person is truly dead, because history doesn’t let go.

 

“I’ll tell you something about true love. There’s no science to it. It’s natural as the sky.” (Wither, Lauren DeStefano)

Love is looked at form so many different angles. This really moved my heart. Love seems so light and easy and vibrant and exuberant. Everything that makes it fairytale-esque.
