Citite in carti! (16)

Asa cum va spuneam dimineata in recenzia cartii “Love Letters to the Dead”, am gasit foarte multe citate superba in cartea mai sus mentionata. De multe ori, nu este suficienta numai o recenzie pentru a va convinge sa cititi o carte, asa ca m-am hotarat sa fac o selectie intre toate citatele pe care le-am notat in carnetel. Desi mi-a fost foarte greu sa nu va las toate citatele din carte, spun eu ca am reusit sa le aleg pe cele mai frumoasa. 🙂

Doamnelor si domnilor, ‘Love Letters to the Dead’ de Ava Dellaira:

 “I think a lot of people want to be someone, but we are scared that if we try, we won’t be as good as everyone imagines we could be.”

“And maybe what growing up really means is knowing that you don’t have to be just a character, going whichever way the story says. It’s knowing you could be the author instead.”

“You can be noble and brave and beautiful and still find yourself falling.”

“You think you know someone, but that person always changes, and you keep changing, too. I understood it suddenly, how that’s what being alive means. Our own invisible plates shifting inside of our bodies, beginning to align into the people we are going to become.”

“There are a lot of human experiences that challenge the limits of our language,” she said. “That’s one of the reasons that we have poetry.”

“When we are in love, we are both completely in danger and completely saved.”

“But we aren’t transparent. If we want someone to know us, we have to tell them stuff.”

“There’s more to life than being a passenger.”

“She walked like she belonged in a better world.”

“So maybe when we can say things, when we can write the words, when we can express how it feels, we aren’t so helpless.”

“I mean, words can’t be good enough for a lot of things. But, you know, I guess we have to try.”

“Truth is beautiful, no matter what the truth is. Even if it’s scary or bad. It is beauty simply because it’s true. And truth is bright. Truth makes you more you.”

“You learned right away that applause sounds like love.”

“Judy, I read that you said your first memory was music. Music that fills up a home. And one day, suddenly the music could escape through a window. For the rest of your life, you had to chase it.”

“Nirvana means freedom. Freedom from suffering. I guess some people would say that death is just that. So, congratulations on being free, I guess. The rest of us are still here, grappling with all that’s been torn up.”

“I know that it can be hard to believe that someone loves you if you are afraid of being yourself, or if you are not exactly sure who you are. It can be hard to believe that someone won’t leave.”

“I think that by beauty, you don’t just mean something that’s pretty. You mean something that makes us human.”

“A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel, or not to feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to — letting a person be what he really is.”

“I feel like I am drowning in memories. Everything is too bright.”

“The house felt haunted, like only I understood the way all of our shadows, the ones we’d left, had seeped into the wood and stained it.”

“The universe is bigger than anything that can fit into your mind.”

“Maybe when we can tell the stories, however bad they are, we don’t belong to them anymore. They become ours. And maybe what growing up really means is knowing that you don’t have to just be a character, going whichever way the story sys. It’s knowing that you could be the author instead.”

“We do things sometimes because we feel so much inside of us, and we don’t notice how it affects somebody else.”

“We are each weird in a different way, but together, that’s actually normal.”


‘Abtine-te, Bianca, Abtine-te!’

Nu cred ca va imaginati cat de mult imi plac aceste citate. Mai mai ca m-as apuca din  nou de carte.

Ce parere aveti? Va surade cartea? 🙂
