(Notable Quotables is a meme originally brought to you by the Bewitched Bookworms. Every Monday you’re invited to share a favorite quote or two from the books you’ve been reading.)
Every book is, in one way or another, about a journey; this can be a journey between two worlds or between two minds.
It’s great to see characters grow and change and become who they’re supposed to be. It’s also great to look back and see how I myself have changed, and been affected by books. Stories are an irreplaceable part of my life, and of Anna Quindlen’s as well:
“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”
It’s also fun to look forward into my future, and make plans and guesses about where I’ll go and what I’ll do. I can’t tell the future, but I agree with Bruce Wilkinson when he says:
“You were born for more. You are called to go after larger and larger dreams for God, and He will go with you. So when you hear Him say, ‘Come Further,’ pick up your knapsack. Your horizon is full of promise. Another big dream is out there waiting for you, and if you don’t pursue it, something important won’t happen.”
I’ve really enjoyed the “Notable Quotables” meme, and I’m sad to see it go. But I’m sure there are plenty of other Monday Memes out there. It will certainly be a fun journey to find one.
What journey(s) have you been on recently? What lessons have you learned?
