Favourite Book Quotes (Part Two)
I had actually done this topic before two/three years ago (this is more telling of my age in this community than anything else lolol) but i figured I’d try to include newer quotes from recent faves. I shall denote this post as “Part Two” and select more recent quotes from books I’ve read.

All the while knowing that the world makes no sense but trying to find a way to be happy anyway.”

I used to post-it the heck out of my books for quotes. I don’t do it as much anymore but I still appreciate the nuance in trying to craft a short-or-long passage with meaning that lifts and makes us think.
