Some of my favourite lines I read this year (part 2)

Some more of my favourite lines I read this year. Going through my books and looking these up made me so happy! I should really to this more often. 🙂
 
There are few reasons for telling the truth, but for lying the number is infinite.
The Shadow of the Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafon
 
Don’t beat yourself up for not knowing the answers. You don’t always have to know who you are. You don’t have to have the big picture, or know where you’re heading. Sometimes, it’s enough just to know what you’re going to do next.
The Undomestic Goddess – Sophie Kinsella
 
We read to know we’re not alone. We read because we are alone. We read and we are not alone. We are not alone.
and
We are not quite novels.
We are not quite short stories.
In the end, we are collected works.
The Storied life of AJ Fikry – Gabrielle Zevin
 
To die, it’s easy. But you have to struggle for life.
Maus – Art Spiegelman
 
Your mind will believe comforting lies while also knowing the painful truths that make those lies necessary. And your mind will punish you for believing both.
A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness
 
What is life without this? which was why, in the end, it was I, and not he, who blurted out, not once, but many, many times, You’ll kill me if you stop, because it was also my way of bringing full circle the dream and the fantasy, me and him, the longed-for words from his mouth to my mouth back into his mouth, swapping words from mouth to mouth, which was when I must have begun using obscenities that he repeated after me, softly at first, till he said, “Call me by your name and I’ll call you by mine”
Call me by your name – André Aciman
 
My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I am eighteen years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all, I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cup mushroom. Everyone else in our family is dead.
We have always lived in the castle – Shirley Jackson
 
Okay, enough for now. Time to go read some more. That way I’ll have new lines to share next year! (Next year… how crazy is that?!)
