Confessions of a Reader

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

Simply Sunday [2]

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.

I actually have two quotes I want to share this week.

Quote #1:

The only way we can survive is to work together. Each of us must play our part. The minute we stand alone, we fall alone.

A quote from Looking at the Stars by Jo Cotterill.

Why this quote?

I just love this. It is a powerful, inspirational quote about the power of humanity and survival.

Quote #2

My books have been in boxes for far too long.  The contents will get jumbled and become deranged.

A quote from Call the Midwife – (BBC 1, Series 3, Episode 2) said by Sister Monica Joan.

Why this quote?

Love it! It’s a book quote, what’s not to love? This is why all books deserve to be on shelves!

  1. I love both of these quotes for different reasons.
    I like the first quote because it reminds me of the show Lost. It’s my favourite show, and they always say ‘live together; die alone’. Meaning that if they don’t live and work together; they’re going to end up dying alone.
    The second one is perfect because I have so many books in boxes and I need more shelf space! I feel like my boxed books are being neglected.

  2. I love the first quote! It’s very straight forward, yet inspirational. (:
