I thought it might be nice for us to have a place to write down quotes that speak to us or strike us as particularly well-written as we read our way through 2019. These are my first ones:

 

"My heart was a habitation large enough for many guests but lonely and chill, and without a household fire." ~The Scarlet Letter

 

"The dreary burden of a heart unyielded because unvalued and unsought came to Hester's cottage, demanding why they were so wretched." ~The Scarlet Letter

Maybe someone will reply, or maybe this thread will be my personal reading journal!

The vampire may foster quickened heartbeats and levitated hair. But is he worse than the parent who gave to society a neurotic child who became a politician?

Oh well, thought Doremus. He had lived with Emma for 34 years, and not oftener than once or twice a year had he wanted to murder her.

~It Cant Happen Here / Sinclair Lewis
