I saw Jenn of Lost in the Right Direction post this tag awhile back and loved it so much I saved it for a post idea!
Do you have any favorite quotes? share a few.
The only quotes I saved on Goodreads are from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (a favorite series from when I was a teen!) and A River Runs Through It:
“Maybe, sometimes, it’s easier to be mad at the people you trust because you know they’ll always love you, no matter what.” – Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.” – A River Runs Through It
“My father was very sure about certain matters pertaining to the universe. To him all good things – trout as well as eternal salvation – come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy.” – A River Runs Through It
“One of life’s quiet excitements is to stand somewhat apart from yourself and watch yourself softly becoming the author of something beautiful even if it is only a floating ash.” – A River Runs Through It
“In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ’s disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen ad the John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman.” – A River Runs Through It
“At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear. It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us. You can love completely without completely understanding.” – A River Runs Through It
“At the time I did not know that stories of life are often more like rivers than books.” – A River Runs Through It
“The world is full of bastards, the number increasing rapidly the further one gets from Missoula, Montana.” – A River Runs Through It
Can you tell which book spoke to me the most junior year of high school and has stayed with me ever since? The fact that I went to college in Missoula where A River Runs Through It takes place only increased my love.
