بیست و سومین کتابی که تو سال ۹۷ خوندم، کتاب «الینور آلیفنت کاملاً خوب است» نوشته گیل هانیمن و ترجمه زیبای آرتمیس مسعودی بود.
من عموما به کتابهای سبک معمایی پلیسی علاقه دارم و کم پیش میاد کتاب دیگهای جذبم کنه که بتونم تا آخر بخونمش. اما این کتاب فوقالعاده بود با کلی quoteهای زیبا که حیفم اومد اینجا به اشتراک نذارمشون.
اصولا به نظر من کتابی که نشه از توش quote پیدا کرد کتاب نیست!
“Sometimes you simply needed someone kind to sit with you while you dealt with things.”
“Although it’s good to try new things and to keep an open mind, it’s also extremely important to stay true to who you really are.”
“In the end, what matters is this: I Survived.”
“Time only blunts the pain of loss. It doesn’t erase it.”
“I took one of my hands in the other, tried to imagine what it would feel like if it was another person’s hand holding mine. There have been times where I felt that I might die of loneliness.”
“No thank you, I said. I don’t want to accept a drink from you, because then I would be obliged to purchase one for you in return, and I’m afraid I’m simply not interested in spending two drinks’ worth of time with you.”
“But, by careful observation from the sidelines, I’d worked out that social success is often built on pretending just a little. Popular people sometimes have to laugh at things they don’t find very funny, do things they don’t particularly want to, with people whose company they don’t particularly enjoy. Not me. I had decided, years ago, that if the choice was between that or flying solo, then I’d fly solo. It was safer that way.”
“A human hand was exactly the right weight, exactly the right temperature for touching another person, I realized.”
“Grief is the price we pay for love, so they say. The price is far too high.”
