Favorite Quotes

btt  button

Booking Through Thursday asks:

Do you have a favorite quote from a book?

I have so many that I write them down in a separate journal. To name a few highlights:

1. “Then on one fine day, so we beat on, boats against the current, we are borne back into the past” FITZGERALD, The Great Gatsby
2. “It was a fine cry—loud and long—but it had no bottom and it had no top, just circles and circles of sorrow.” MORRISOM, Sula
3. “But this is how Paris was in the early days when we were very poor and very happy.” HEMINGWAY, A Moveable Feast
4. “The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there.” HARTLEY, The Go-Between

  1. What great quotes! I’m not sure which is my favorite here, but I think the Hartley one stands out to me.

  2. Love the scene in “songs for the new depression” where the guy comes out to his family at Sambo’s. “Yes, folks, you heard right. I’m gay. And you’re eating racist pancakes!”
