Happy Friday Everyone! It's Friday the 13th -- but I'm not much of a superstitious person, so I don't usually worry too much about these things. Full moons, on the other hand, almost always guarantee a particularly nutty work week, and this week has been NO exception. Thank goodness I have today off work in order to head to my hometown to see the Tragically Hip in concert -- so excited! The sun is shining, it's freakin' hot and therefore the perfect weather for a ferry ride!
TGIF is hosted, as always, by Greads. This week's topic is: Quotes That Make You Swoon: What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you've experienced in a book?
I LOVE book quotes -- I have a notebook that I use to jot down quotes that make my heart beat a little faster. Over the past couple of years, I've been devouring books faster than I can keep up with my little quote notebook, so most of the quotes are from books that I read years ago. With that being said, here's a little sampling from its pages -- the quotes are quite diverse, but I love them all.
And we loved with a love that was more than a love.
~ Edgar Allan Poe, "Annabel Lee"
People just wanted to be loved. That was the thing about words, they were clear and specific -- chair, eye, stone -- but when you talked about feelings, words were too stiff, they were this and not that, they couldn't include all the meanings. In defining, they always left something out.
~ Janet Fitch, White Oleander
Stories are light.
~ Gregor in the Jailer in Kate di Camillo's Tale of Despereaux
As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.
~ John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
Are there any quotes on my list that made your heart sing too? Please leave me a comment, and a link to your TGIF post and I'll stop by to visit! Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
