My bookworm self has been pretty starved lately plus all the unshared book thoughts are pretty overwhelming but I can't put them in comprehensible entries right now because they would take up much time so I just decided to join this online meme hosted by Goldie, which I found via Cora.
So, yeah. That One Line is an online meme in which you'll feature a certain sentence or paragraph from a book you read which struck you or left a deep impression on you. According to Goldie: "It should be from a book although quotes related to reading are also welcome." And being the quote buff that I am, this meme is perfect for me. XD I may not be able to do it weekly, but I'll try to share as much as I can. :))
Earlier this morning, I was browsing Instagram and another Tyler Knott creation (from his Typewriter series) caught my attention. As much as I would love that to be my One Line this week, it's not from a book so I guess it isn't qualified. But here it is in case you wanna know. Click here.
Other things aside, here is my quote for the week:
"Time would heal her wounds. Pain and terror was not so final as death."
That quote was from Mario Puzo's The Godfather, which is by the way great in all aspects. I think it was from Amerigo Bonasera's POV. His daughter was brutally beaten up by her so called boyfriend and his friend when she refused to have sex with the both of them -- and was left almost disfigured by the incident. "She would never be beautiful again..", as his father put it. And then that quote appeared.
I think it makes total sense, right? No matter how many hardships we'll go through, it will always be better than death. Because even though there are setbacks, nothings compares to the beauty of living. No matter how disfigured or damaged we become, death is so final while life is still full of possibilities. :))
So that was my One Line. What's yours? Comment up! :)
