I'm obsessed with books and reading and writing. Words matter to me. They're powerful enough to turn our world upside down in just 2 seconds. That's why I believe in writers and their words, they can bring a revolution in me. And below I'm sharing my MOST favourite words from my favourite books.
"If you have no reason or ability to accomplish anything, then just practice the art of becoming."
“Imagination was a dangerously captivating magic for those compelled to be realistic in life, and words could be poisonous for those destined always to be silenced.”
“Sometimes, for the soul to thrive, the heart needs to be broken."
"Centre of the universe was neither in the East nor in the West. It was where one surrendered to love. Sometimes it was where one buried a loved one."
"I don't know that we are actually human at this point, those of us who are like most of us, who grew up with TV and movies and now the Internet. If we are betrayed, we know the words to say; when a loved one dies, we know the words to say. If we want to play the stud or the smart-ass or the fool, we know the words to say. We are all working from the same dog-eared script.."
“She’s easy to like. I’ve never understood why that’s considered a compliment - that just anyone could like you.”
“You drink a little too much and try a little too hard. And you go home to a cold bed and think, That was fine. And your life is a long line of fine.”
“Don't punish yourself,' she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness, too. That was writing.”
“I'm always finding humans at their best and worst. I see their ugly and their beauty and I wonder how the same can be both.”
"You can't eat books, sweetheart."
