Thursday’s Quote Corner is exactly what it sounds like! Quotes from books I read! Yay! Okay, the yay may have been a little much. I saw a quote corner somewhere, once I remember the site, I’ll link it at the end of this post.
But for quote corner #1 the quote’s will be from Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy. I posted a review earlier in the week.
So without further ado, the quotes!
- Page 204: “I obviously don’t know the whole story here, but good friendships are durable. They’re meant to survive the gaps and the growing pains.” Oh, I related to this quote so well. I have friends that I don’t talk to often, but I know we’re still friends. Life gets busy.
- Page 212: “Perfection is nothing more than a phantom shadow we’re all chasing.” This is so true. We see others as perfect compared to ourselves, but yet, we’re perfect in our way. Perfection never really exists. We are all unique.
- Page 333: “Loyalty is … loyalty is being there for someone. It’s selfless. It’s about standing by someone’s side even when you don’t want to. […] Because you love them.” — “Loyalty isn’t blind. […] Loyalty is telling someone they’re wrong when no one else will.” Oh how this is so true. Loyalty is many things. It’s being there for someone even when things get tough.
- Page 369: “I guess sometimes the perfection we perceive in others is made up of a whole bunch of tiny imperfections, because some days the damn dress just won’t zip.”
NOTE: All quotes from Dumplin’ are the work of the author, Julie Murphy. I do not own them in anyway.
