Day One: 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge

Okay, I’ve been seeing a lot of these floating around the blogosphere but wasn’t sure what they were until I was tagged by Emily @The Diary of a Bibliophile. Her first quote was GREAT so go check it out!

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  3. Nominate three new bloggers each day.

Okay, so here’s my first quote fromย All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

18143977

โ€œThere is pride, too, though–pride that he has done it alone. That his daughter is so curious, so resilient. There is the humility of being a father to someone so powerful, as if he were only a narrow conduit for another, greater thing. Thatโ€™s how it feels right now, he thinks, kneeling beside her, rinsing her hair: as though his love for his daughter will outstrip the limits of his body. The walls could fall away, even the whole city, and the brightness of that feeling would not wane.โ€ – pg 189

I love this quote. It’s a father thinking about his blind daughter as he helps her bathe. There is such a connection between parent and child that is unfathomable to me at this stage of my life since I don’t have any kids. I do have a 6-month-old nephew though and I do feel that pride every time he accomplishes something new (ex. sitting up by himself). I can only imagine how proud I’ll be of my own kids.

Nominations:

Melanie @Reviews of a Self Proclaimed Bibliophile
Felicia @Felicia Sue Lynn Reviews
Erika & Miedjel @Partners in Books

Feel free to ignore the nomination if you’ve already done it or are just plain not interested!

  1. Thank you for nominating me! I feel like I’m officially part of the community now. Lol. That’s an awesome quote. I see why you chose it. I’ve been thinking about adding All the Light We Cannot See to my TBR and this might have sealed it. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Oooh, this seems like such a fun tag. I am always posting so many book quotes I like to Twitter, I guess I might as well show them a little love on my blog as well, hehehe! Thanks for the tag<3
