Friday’s Finest (5)

Friday’s Finest is a meme hosted by Justine at A Bookful of Thoughts. The rules are:

~Post a quote that really stuck to you after reading it in a book.
~Make sure it isn’t a spoiler!
~If you’d like, expand on what you think it means and why you chose it.

This week’s quote is from Delirium by Lauren Oliver. I actually read this book a while ago, but I wrote this quote out because it matched so many things so perfectly.Delirium

It’s strange how life works: You want something and you wait and wait and feel like it’s taking forever to come. Then it happens and it’s over and all you want to do is curl back up in that moment before things changed.

Isn’t that so true, especially for teenagers? Thankfully I’ve got a while before graduating high school, but Grade 12 is so frighteningly close. I’m waiting and waiting and waiting for high school to be over (well, sometimes), for this school year to be over, for my mood swings to be over, but this quote made me wonder if after the change finally happened, I’d want to go right back to how things were before.

Like my dad always says (and I think he got it off somewhere) change is the only thing that’s permanent. It sounds like a total paradox but when you think about it, it’s true.

    Oh my gosh, Rida, you picked a brilliant book! Although I’ve yet to read it still :(

    Your dad is right about that quote. And I remember reading that line somewhere….I think it was also mentioned in Going Bovine by Libba Bray (YA! :D ). Anyway, changes are coming soon especially for me. I’ll be going off to university soon! That’s a huge change right there! And I’m still also experiencing some changes right now because of rugby. New friends! It’s something that feels good. When you’re in a team, it starts to feel like a family. And through every game, you all face it together as one. Change is good sometimes. :)

      Oh, it really is a great book :)

      LOL really? I knew it was a famous quote or something. Wow, yeah, university’s a big deal- and playing sports always gets you good friends :) That’s so true- both about teams and change :)
