“Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?" Mo had said..."As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar.”

Book Quote Friday! 1/25/13


Well here it is Friday already and I wanted to share a book quote with you from a book that I read recently. The book was Dolly:  My Life and Other Unfinished Business by Dolly Parton. This quote is something I like to read every now and again when I am feeling a bit down about life or feeling like I should be getting something more from it than what I am getting.

“…movies may come and go, but life is something you buy a ticket to every day—and it doesn’t come with popcorn.”

What is your favorite book quote?

  1. Dolly Parton is the best. She definitely has her head on straight. Always love to hear what she has to say, and that's not something you can say about most celebrities.
