Quotable

Booking Through Thursday asks,

“Do you have a favorite quote from a book?”

I actually look for quotes in many of the books I read because I’ve long wanted a literary quote as a tattoo. Unfortunately, the quotes that speak to me and stick with me most are not things that I want to tattoo on myself. Case in point, here is one of my favorite quotes, from Octavian Nothing:

At long last, you may no longer distinguish what binds you from what is you.

That may be a quote that is more powerful in context, but idgaf because I know the context. It is a quote that still makes my heart ache every time I read it. But you can see what I mean about perhaps not being the sort of thing a person would want permanently inked on their body?
