This (hopefully) weekly post is partly inspired by Quote it Saturday (Freda's Voice). I will be choosing a favourite quote – sometimes a few - every weekend, share it with you and explain why I think it’s special, beautiful or thought-provoking. Enjoy! P.S. The quotes won’t have any spoilers.
This week I chose the following quote:
"There can be beauty anywhere. Even here. An if it ain't there, you can make it yerself."When I was reading Blood Red Road, I was particularly struck by this quote. I usually don’t remember to write down quotes but when I do, they are words strung together like beads making a beautiful pattern, or puzzle pieces fitting just right into each other, an entity that calls out to me and sticks into my mind determinedly. This particular one was just like that. The rhythm of these three sentences is flowing and effortless, they give each other shape and most importantly, they form together an ageless thought that applies everywhere, to everyone.
