I actually finished a book, you guys!

Granted, it’s not “1Q84” like I had originally planned — my library loan expired, but I’m back on the waiting list — but I’ve wanted to read “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” for a while now. I hate watching the movie and not knowing how it compares to the book.

Anyways, here are some of my favorite quotes from the book.

I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.

You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.

Everything that’s born has to die, which means our lives are like skyscrapers. The smoke rises at different speeds, but they’re all on fire, and we’re all trapped.

My full review will be posted tomorrow
