Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, where we get a bookish prompt to create a top ten for.
Honestly, for a short while I kept track of the quotes I loved, but I haven’t done that in a while. And I can’t quite be bothered to find all those quotes in all the books I’ve read this year. So here, have a few from The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Maybe next year I’ll try and keep track of all those quotes again.
That’s the trouble with living things. Don’t last very long. Kittens one day, old cats the next. And then just memories. And the memories fade and blend and smudge together…
Books were safer than other people anyway.
I knew only that I was used to being me, and I liked my books and my grandparents and Lettie Hempstock, and that death would take all these things from me.
I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled.
