Okay, so last time I wrote I told you guys about my quote book. And so now I'm actually going to go into the book.
Ha. Okay, this is just the quote I flipped to. It's not one of the ones that really spoke to me... I just found it hilarious for some reason.
Something about this boat screamed, "I am a very popular model in the world's oil-bearing regions. I cost more than your soul!"
--GIRL AT SEA
Ha. Love that. But now I should probably find one of the more serious ones, right?
"After all this time, it still seems to me like straight and fast is the only way out - but I choose the labyrinth. The labyrinth blows, but I choose it."
--LOOKING FOR ALASKA
I remember when I copied this quote down I was sitting on the grass on one of the "greenbelts" (I always wonder why they call them greenbelts... it makes no sense, but that's not the point.) and I was thinking some really serious thoughts, thinking that the Colonel (the character who spoke those words in LFA) was right. Thinking that no matter what crap was going on then or would go on in the future, I choose the labyrinth. I choose this life, much as it sucks sometimes and as much as sometimes we all think it couldn't get worse... and then it starts raining. (Although actually I love the rain, so that analogy doesn't actually work for me.)
Okay. Another quote? Fine then.
Different people were good at different things. Lena was good at writing thank-you notes, for instance, and Effie was good at being happy.
--THE SECOND SUMMER OF THE SISTERHOOD
Sigh. LOVE THAT QUOTE. It's so good, so true. I always felt sorry for Lena, who had everything in the world except happiness. And, okay, I know all you TEAM KOSTOS girls will disagree with me on this one, but I didn't really think Kostos added any happiness to her life. Instead he made her miserable; she hurt when she was with him and she hurt when she wasn't. She hurt when he loved her and she hurt when he broke her heart. I'm obviously no expert, but I don't think love should do that to you, I don't think it should mess you up like that.
But, sorry. I get on a tangent about Kostos when I start talking about the Traveling Pants. Anyone want to offer the opposing veiwpoint? Anyone? Feel free too. (Also tell if you want more quotes! I have many!)
(Also... I heart comments. Seriously. Thank you Zulay and Jocelyn, whose name is not at all awful.)
