What is a quote from a book that you've read in the past year? This book could be a favorite of yours or just a book you really enjoyed.
Mine is from the 'Tiger's Wife' by Téa Obreht.
your fight has purpose--to free you from something, to interfere on
behalf of the innocent--it has the hope of finality. When the fight is
about unraveling-- when it is about your name, the places to which your
blood is anchored, the attachment of your name to some landmark or
event--there is nothing but that, and the long, slow progression of
people who feed on it and are fed it, meticulously, by the ones who come
before them. Then the fight is endless, and comes in waves and waves,
but always retains its capacity to surprise those who hope against it."
Here's another from the same book:
sat up, pushed his chair away from the table and rubbed his knees.
'When men die, they die in fear,' he said. 'They take everything they
need from you, and as a doctor it is your job to give it, to comfort
them, to hold their hand. But children die how they have been living--in
hope. They don't know what's happening, so they expect nothing, they
don't ask you to hold their hand--but you end up needing them to hold
yours. With children, you're on your own. Do you understand?'"
