Hello, book clan!
There are always those quotes you catch from a book that strike you and stay with you. Here are a few of mine.
“Sometimes when something touches you, it’s hard to find the words. You can say things like ‘beautiful’, ‘fabulous’, ‘awesome’, but the words don’t really describe how you feel, especially if you were feeling all that, but the picture made you-made you hurt some, too.” (Kissed By an Angel, Elizabeth Chandler)
Ineffable. When you can’t find the words for how strongly you feel whether it’s overwhelming happiness or unbearable sadness. When even trying to have such feelings can be difficult because all you felt for so long was a hollowness from something being snatched away and you don’t know how to fill it or what to fill it with.
“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.” (Edgar Allan Poe)
Poe is such a major favorite of mine. Though quite morbid and fantastic with imagery and horror, I find his words filled with emotion that strikes the heart.
“It’s funny how humans can wrap their mind around things and fit them into their version of reality.” (Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief, Rick Riordan)
There are some things that we struggle to adapt to and some we just refuse to accept. I’ve been there a few times.
More to come soon…
