A Quote a Day. This will have you pulling books off your shelves and Googling for your favorites. It also means a post a day for the next week - or as many as you can do. Quoth Dewey: You may want to come up with a theme, such as favorite passages from books, author quotes, political quotes, quotes about books or reading, humorous quotes, whatever. Or you may not want a theme at all; maybe you just want to gather up seven assorted quotes that appeal to you. You may want to start each of your posts of the week with a quote, or you may want to give quotes posts of their own in addition to your regular posts. It’s all up to you!
I am not going to do a theme, instead, today I am going to share two quotes I jotted down while I was reading last night and later in the week I will share some of my all time favorites.
From Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty
About a trip to Columbia University
"As an agnostic, I don't know who or what or why this force is pulling me toward New York. Frankly, it's beyond my comprehension. All I know is that when I set foot on that campus, I was so sure it was where I was supposed to be. It wasn't a shout that reverberated inside my body until I rocked with shock. No, it was a quiet but confident voice I wasn't used to hearing, one that assured me that I had just come to the right place where I could be a part of something great. It was the first time I'd ever felt that way in my life"
About a trip to Piedmont College
"I just came back from the innermost circle of hell, and it's decorated in Laura Ashley florals."
I loved the description of the first one, and it is truly how I felt on my own college campus. And the second just made me giggle.
