Line(s) of the Day #HighFidelity

I’m very good at the past. It’s the present I can’t understand.

Taken from the novel High Fidelity (1995) by British writer Nick Hornby. Told in a stream of consciousness, it tells of the main character’s struggle to cope with a break up and how it relates to his life overall. I read it years ago but it was very interesting rereading it over 20 years later.

Line(s) of the Day #TheBookThief

I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.

Taken from The Book Thief by Australian writer Markus Zusak. The novel is set during World War II and narrated by Death. I could easily have quoted a dozen quotes from this extraordinary book.
