Turns out there's a reason they call it falling in love, because when it happens - really happens - that's exactly how it feels. There's no doing or trying, you just let go and hope that someone's going to be there to catch you.

It wasn‘t freedom she wanted. It was belief in something—a prize big enough to run for and to fight for and to keep on reaching toward no matter what.

Hope may be the thing that pulls you forward, may be the thing that keeps you going, but that it's dangerous, that it's painful and risky, that it's making a dare in the world and when has the world ever let us win a dare?

The Book Thief | Markus Zusak
post image

I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn't already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.

K.M.-Forester I absolutely loved this book when I read it back on school. I think it‘s time to revisit it again ❤️ 1y
Picking_Books I loved this book so much. It has been years since I read it though. I am definitely going to give it another read 1y
fortune_bookie @K.M.-Forester At first I was intimidated with this book so I always put this on hold. But during the height of the pandemic I gave this a try and found myself hooked. 🩷 1y

It's funny how humans can wrap their mind around things and fit them into their version of reality.

Vanity is a factor, but it is more a question of control. It is easier to trick others into perceiving you as beautiful if you can convince yourself you are beautiful. But mirrors have an uncanny way of telling the truth.

It seemed like the second you tried to tell someone why you loved someone else, it took the luster off it, like pinning a butterfly down in a case—it never quite captured it.

My greatest wish for humanity is not for peace or comfort or joy. It is that we all still die a little inside every time we witness the death of another. For only the pain of empathy will keep us human. There‘s no version of God that can help us if we ever lose that.

It strikes me that I cannot claim this country‘s serene coves and sun-soaked beaches without also claiming its poverty, its problems, its history. To say that any aspect of it is part of me is to say that all of it is part of me.
