Hallo everybuddy, and welcome.
I was tagged to do the 3 Days 3 Quotes challenge by Claire Huston at Art and Soul, in which you would consecutively post a book quote a day for three days. However—in this case—since I waited so long, I’m just gonna post these three quotes below in one day. Thank you Claire! Sorry it’s taken me so long—I’m an awful procrastinator.
So let’s get to it then.
From Memoirs of a Geisha, there’s this quote that Sayuri says that really got to me and I’ve never forgotten it. I think most people can say that they’ve experienced loss, including me—in more ways than one, and this quote really stays true to the concept.
From The Fault in Our Stars, this exact version of the quote is actually from the movie rather than the version in the book, but I loved that scene and the way she said it because I just completely understood how she felt in that moment. There’s been a lot of times in my life when I’ve struggled and had to pull myself out of these slumps, where I just didn’t want to be me anymore.
From The Hobbit, this quote might seem small and insignificant—however, for me, it means everything. It’s the sum of everything that defines the entirety of the Tolkien novels. And the Tolkien novels for me, reminds me of my dad. I’ve always been really close to my father and we related in so many ways, and with the Lord of the Rings—including The Hobbit, it’s been the one staple story that we both love probably more than any other. Anytime I watch the movies or read the books, it gives me a warm feeling inside and makes me happy because I feel close to my dad.
