Five Quotes Friday
Where I share my favorite quotes from the things I have recently read, or am currently reading.
The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn #2)
“And if I’m wrong for him?” Vin asked. “You must love him enough to trust his wishes, even if you disagree with them. You must respect him—no matter how wrong you think he may be, no matter how poor you think his decisions, you must respect his desire to make them. Even if one of them includes loving you.”
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Blake (Infernal Devices #2)
“The only alternative seems to be doing nothing, dearest Charlotte,” he said. “And doing nothing, I find, rarely accomplishes anything. Besides, what could go wrong?”
“I feel myself diminished, parts of me spiraling away into the darkness, that which is good and honest and true – if you hold it away from yourself long enough, do you lose it entirely? If no one cares for you at all, do you even really exist?”
Sweet Little Lies by Caz Frear – review to be posted soon.

“God, I miss my mum. To the rest of the world you’re just a living, growing mass of cells. Your brain fully forms and your bones start to lengthen and before you know it, you’re a card-carrying grown-up who’s expected to drive cars, pay bills and remember to buy tin foil. But to your mum, you’ll always be a bit gormless. The girl who sneezed in her porridge and ate it anyway. And I miss that. I miss being a half-wit and being loved for it.”
