Speedy Quote Sunday

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.

Hello, loves! It’s Speedy Quote Sunday.

Here are a few quotes from books that really made an imprint on my heart. Sometimes they do that. They’ll make you melt. Twist you up. In most cases, they’ll stay with you because they added meaning to your life. That or they made you laugh so hard you nose-sprayed your drink.

Anyway…they’re special.

“There are moments in your life you wish with all your heart you could take back. Like, just erase from existence. Like, if you could, you’d erase yourself right out of existence too, just to make that moment not exist.” (It’s Not Summer Without You, Jenny Han)

The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy is one that I read every summer. It’s innocence and first love and the beach. There are these bits that always get to pause. This was definitely one of them.

“Didn’t anyone tell you it’s not polite to skip ahead to the end of the book?” (The Librarians and the Lost Lamp, Greg Cox)

Okay, so I’m guilty of this. I can’t help it! I just want to know if it’s worth the journey. There’s nothing worse than going on this great journey only for the ending to be utterly dreadful. Plus, if that ending captures me, then I definitely want to get there.

“My mother once told me that diamonds were born of pressure, but I never understood what she meant until I met you.” (The Dark Calling, Kresley Cole)

The Dark Calling had so many moments that ripped my heart. With such nonstop intensity and incredible heartache, I was a mess. Cole has a way of sticking her hand through your chest, grabbing your heart, and twisting it.

Hello loves, you lover of books, of the great storytelling page!

 

Ever have those quotes in books that really stick with you? They cling to your heart, leaving little trails that you look back on and remember fondly whether it’s happy or sad or so moving that you get teary-eyed. I know I have many. I could probably make a book out of them.

Here are a few of my favorites.

 

“To belong to someone—I didn’t know it, but now that I think about it, it seems like that’s all I’ve ever wanted.” (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han)

In honor of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before coming soon to Netflix. I’m unbelievably excited. If you haven’t seen the trailer go do it right now. I’m serious! Go! I’m not going anywhere! Jenny Han has such a delicacy to her writing. It’s beautiful and pure and the the point of when innocence meets the grown-up world.

“Nothing had changed. Everything had changed.” (The Life and Death of Charlie St. Cloud, Ben Sherwood)

Though quite short, this line is so powerful. I love it because I think about how life changes every day whether by a lot or by a little. We may notice it, though I’m pretty sure we don’t until it’s changed so much. It just gets me all nostalgic.

“You were like a lighthouse in a storm. That’s all. I didn’t want to freak you out. I was just happy to find you.” (Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future, A.S. King)

This is a quote that was just so beautifully written that I had to share. Everybody needs that one person that they can find when it’s gets so dark that you can’t see. You know what I’m saying. Someone who can find you and pull you out, or at least guide you out.

Hello my loves, my precious bookworms!

I hope you’ve had a splendid weekend and will have a splendid week. I was deeply inspired by the 5157 Miles Book Blog and really want to share my favorite quotes that have inspired me, made me laugh, cry or feel something so alien that it has stuck with me. Here, I want to share a couple, so I’ve decided to take up Speedy Quote Sunday. Quick. To the point. And something to mull over.

 

“Everyone tells you it’s all right to cry, but not enough people say it’s all right if you don’t want people to know.”

-Lemony Snicket, “Shouldn’t You Be in School?”

 

“There is a rot at the heart of what we love. It is not the knowledge or the preservation of it. It is the notion that only we can decide what is worthy, what is not, what is progress, and whether or not it should proceed.”

-Rachel Caine, Smoke and Iron

 

“The best books, they don’t talk about things you never thought about before. They talk about things you’d always thought about, but that you didn’t think anyone else had thought about. You read them, and suddenly you’re a little bit less alone in the world.”

-Tommy Wallach, We All Looked Up
