Confessions of a Reader

'Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.' – Mason Cooley

Simply Sunday [1]

Simply Sunday is a weekly reading meme held over at Books for a Delicate Eternity. It’s where you can share your favourite quote of the week; be it from a book, novella, a short story, a song, a poem – whatever you like! I have decided to use my favourite quote from my current read each week.

Mortal fear is as crucial a thing to our lives as love. It cuts to the core of our being and shows us what we are. Will you step back and cover your eyes? Or will you have the strength to walk to the precipice and look out?

A quote from Night Film by Marisha Pessl.

Why this quote?

I feel like this quote sums up the premise of this book so well. A quote about strength, fear and courage. A thought-provoking moment that truly makes you question how strong fear and love are in human beings.

  1. Ooo – this is such an amazing quote. I like how uses our fear as something that defines us. I like how it’s also parallel to courage, too.
