Confessions of a Reader

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

Simply Sunday [3]

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.

Quote:

“I trust you with their lives,’ Prof said, still writing, ‘and them with yours. Don’t betray that trust, son. Keep your impulses in check. Don’t just act because you can; act because it’s the right thing to do. If you keep that in mind, you’ll be all right.”

 – Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Why this quote?

I love the simplicity of this. I feel that we should all try to act because it is the right thing to do not just because we can – humanity would be much stronger, the world might even be a nicer place.

  1. This is such a beautiful quote, and I love your reason for choosing it.
    I have this book checked out from the library, and this quote has definitely made me more eager to read it. 🙂
