Favourite Quotes from the Last Books I Read

Hi everyone,

Here’s my favourite quotes from the last books I read in the month of January! Check out my January wrap up for my thoughts on these books.


The Ballad of the Sad Café and Other Stories by Carson McCullers

“But the hearts of small children are delicate organs. A cruel beginning in this world can twist them into curious shapes. The heart of a hurt child can shrink so that forever afterward it is hard and pitted as the seed of a peach. Or again, the heart of such a child may fester and swell until it is a misery to carry within the body, easily chafed and hurt by the most ordinary things.”
“There is no stillness like the quiet of the first cold nights in the fall.”

“A most mediocre person can be the object of a love which is wild, extravagant, and beautiful as the poison lillies of the swamp.”

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee
“As sure as time, history is repeating itself, and as sure as man is man, history is the last place he’ll look for his lessons.”
“Remember this also: it’s always easy to look back and see what we were, yesterday, ten years ago. It is hard to see what we are. If you can master that trick, you’ll get along.”
“Autumn was her happiest season.”
