QUOTE of the Day #3

The best word shakers were those who understood the true power of words. They were always able to climb the highest. One such word shaker was a small, skinny girl. She was renowned as the last of her region because she knew how powerless a person could be WITHOUT books. She had desire. She was hungry for them.

-Max Vandenburg, from The Book Thief .

Everyone, inevitably, falls in love with Liesel. This extract from Max’s little book is beautiful, and describes the power that all readers have and are aware of- words.

QUOTE of the Day #2

I caught sight of my mother when the bus was still a hundred yards away. She was standing patiently outside the gate of the cottage waiting for the bus to come along, and for all I knew she had been standing there when the earlier bus had gone by an hour or two before. But what is one hour or even three hours when you have been waiting three years?

-Roald Dahl, from Going Solo

Roald Dahl is one of my eternal favorites- be it his morbid adult short stories or fun children’s books. This quote precisely describes how it feels to meet your loved ones after a very long time.

QUOTE of the Day #1

But there’s more to it. I will come clean. I will tell you a secret: a part of me was glad about Richard Parker. A part of me did not want Richard Parker to die at all, because if he died I would be left alone with despair, a foe even more formidable than a tiger.

– Pi Patel,  from Life of Pi

I love Life of Pi. Many people think it’s mainstream, but that’s only because they’re looking at the surface. This quote just makes me happy, because it’s the truth- you need something you fear to deal with other things.
