Quote Love (1)

Quote Love is a new meme created by Midnight Twilight's Book Blog. It's kind of like Teaser Tuesday from Should Be Reading, but with this one you can choose any quote from any book, not just the one you're currently reading. The quote can be thought provoking, or funny, or just really powerful, it's all up to you which kind of quote you choose. This Quote is from The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen:
"That was the thing. You never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone. Just when you think it's reconciled, accepted, someone points it out to you, and it just hits you all over again, that shocking."
This is my favorite Sarah Dessen Quote. This makes me think of when I lost my sister and how dark my live felt and even though it has been seventeen years, I miss her everyday. I think that this quote captures grief and lost so well, which is why Sarah Dessen is such a stunning writer.


  1. I've always loved this quote as well. This week I had to attend a funeral of a friend, and while it's obviously so fresh on my mind, I don't think you ever really fully accept someone is actually gone from your life.

  2. Wow, this quote is really powerful. It's true that grief comes in waves, and even far after someones death the sadness of that loss can be overpowering.

  3. Also, I like your blog, and am now following!

  4. I'm so sorry about the loss of your sister. I am now more resolved than ever to read some Dessen. Thank you.
