“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.”

Cornelia Funke, Inkspell

Book Quote Saturday! (33)—Truman Capote


Today’s book quote comes from Truman Capote and it really seems to sum up the difference between failure and success, for me anyway. We all need a bit of failure in our lives to help us to appreciate our successes. What do you think?

“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.”

Enjoy the above book quote and have a great reading week!


  1. Yes, failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor. I agree with this assessment.

    Have a fabulous day Carol. ☺

  2. I guess I could see that.



While your comments are appreciated, I must ask that you do not nominate me for any awards. Happy reading and have an awesome day!
