3 Quotes in 3 Days – Day 1

Alright, so I’ve been eyeing this challenge for a while now.  I looooove quotes, they’re one of my favorite parts of reading.  I frequently go back and reread favorite quotes, so I already have an idea for the three I’m going to choose.

Thank you, Avathenerd and Midnight Ranter, for nominating me!  I really appreciate it!


The Rules:

1.Pick 3 quotes for 3 days and write what they mean to you.
2.Nominate 3 different bloggers each day (no repetition).
3.Thank the person who nominated you.

For my first quote I’m going to go with my all time favorite author, Melina Marchetta.  I know I’ve talked about her before, and particularly about Jellicoe Road.  So instead I’m going to choose one of my favorite quotes from Saving Francesca:


My favorite thing about amazing quotes is how they make us feel.  Can a quote really tap into our emotions, make the feelings truly come alive?  If you’ve ever had depression, or loved someone close to you with depression, I think this quote hits the nail on the head.

That is especially true of a parent.  Our children have no choice but to take on our emotions, and depression can be contagious to the impressionable.  I’m not blaming parents with depression.  It’s an illness, not a choice.  I’m just saying that I think the quote captures the essence of having a parent that is suffering.

Day 1 Nominations:

Angie Elle at Books & Beauty are my Bag

Suzanne at The Bookish Libra

Jackie at Death by Tsundoku

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. Weirdly, it seems like you haven’t received my comment from yesterday (my connection must’ve lost it’s mind); but I tagged you on the very same tag on my post just yesterday!

    And, by the way, I love that quote; it’s filled with so much meaning that I can relate to it despite not having read where it has come from!
