Hey, (mood) readers!
Mondays are always hectic, so here’s a short post. I’d like to start this weekly thing where I’ll post favorite quotes from books that I have read.
For this Monday, November 11th, here’s my entry.
“It’s not the changes that will break your heart; it’s that tug of familiarity.”
“He’s like a song she can’t get out of her head. Hard as she tries, the melody of their meeting runs through her mind on an endless loop, each time as surprisingly sweet as the last, like a lullaby, like a hymn, and she doesn’t think she could ever get tired of hearing it.”
“What are you really studying?”
He leans back to look at her. “The statistical probability of love at first sight.”
“Very funny,” she says. “What is it really?”
“I don’t believe you.”
He laughs, then lowers his mouth so that it’s close to her ear. “People who meet in airports are seventy-two percent more likely too fall for each other than people who meet anywhere else.”
“That’s the thing about flying: You could talk to someone for hours and never even know his name, share your deepest secrets and then never see them again.”
“People talk about books being an escape, but here on the tube, this one feels more like a lifeline…The motion of the train makes her head rattle, but her eyes lock on the words the way a figure skater might choose a focal point as she spins, and just like that, she’s grounded again.”
