Day Three: 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge

3 days 3 quotes

The third and final day! Woooooooo~

Reminder for the 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.

Today’s quote is from The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.

“One hand, five homes. A lifetime in a fist.”

It’s short and sweet but I find it so haunting. I had to read this book for my By and About Women literature course. I absolutely loved the course and this book. But 2 years later and this line is the only one that truly sticks with me. Anytime I read it, the mental picture of the woman who thought this and what her actions were when thinking still come to mind.

The last three people I nominate are:

Sarah at The Book Worm Blogg

Macy at Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Books

Adventures of a Dublin Bookworm (Sorry I couldn’t find your name anywhere.)

I chose a quote from Soulless by Gail Carriger this time. This line made me actually laugh at out loud when I was reading it and kind of reminded me of the inner dialogue I have running when speaking to people who think women are the weaker sex.wpid-20150720_184920-1.jpg

“How ghastly for her, people actually thinking, with their brains, and right next door. Oh, the travesty of it all.”

Of course the first quote is from my all time favorite book Beauty by Robin McKinley.

physical book of Beauty by Robin McKinley

“At least I was true. My intellectual abilities gave me a release, and an excuse. I shunned company because I preferred books; and the dreams I confided to my father were of becoming a scholar in good earnest, and going to University. It was unheard-of several shocked governesses were only too quick to tell me, when I spoke a little too boldly — but my father nodded and smiled and said, ‘We’ll see.’ Since I believed my father could do anything — except of course make me pretty — I worked and studied with passionate dedication, lived in hope, and avoided society and mirrors.”

I nominate:

Kimberly at Over the Bookshelf

Becca at Becca and Books

Aentee at Read at Midnight

Please feel free to ignore the nomination if I missed that you’ve already done it or if you just don’t want to. 🙂
