QUOTES

I love reading books and I know everyone else does too, so I'm gonna write some of my fave quotes with reasons why.

1- "Closing my eyes doesn't help. Fire burns brighter in the darkness." (Suzanne Collins- Mockingjay)

First of all, this is like a metaphor, but Katniss is the Girl on Fire so it's also not a metaphor. And I don't even know how she did that but that is just perfect, using a metaphor in a real meaning.
It's like saying when people are hopeless, hope is much stronger than anything using Katniss' situation perfectly.

2- "We can be mended. We mend each other." (Veronica Roth- Allegiant)

This is something I learnt on my own, how damaged we are we can be mended. And the quote mentions dependency on other people, it mentions how we depend on other people to mend us and how the society needs to remain a society to people to escape the damages after a while and the accuracy of the quote is scary. Veronica must have been damaged and mended or otherwise I don't know how she can know this. That's why the quote gets to me.
Also that's how the series end so its pretty important.

3- "I like that version as much as the next girl does. It’s just not the truth." (The Fault In Our Stars Movie)

I like how she says everything we see in the movies and kind of explains why it's not the truth and kind of tells us that we won't see one of those movies where they fall in love and one of them just heal out of true love. It tells us that this movie is different and it tells us to prepare ourselves for the tears.

4- "I never thought about how important the sky was until I didn't have one." (Across the Universe-Beth Revis)

This is just too good, because ask anyone and they would tell you they could live without a sky, but once you lose it you'll realise how important it is. It goes for everything but the way Beth Revis puts it in the book itself is reason why to read the book. Totally recommended and the quote will bring tears. Promise.
