Happy Thursday, friends! Another week has gone by so fast it’s almost frightening and it’s time for another Thursday Quotables post.
Thursday Quotables is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written. Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines will be, and you’re invited to join in! Created by Lisa, over at Bookshelf Fantasies, and joined in by, well, me!

As I sped through Still Life with Tornado, I found myself dog-earing pages almost every other page. One of the easiest five stars I’ve given to a book this year.
“I’m 47. I’m not going to sit here and tell you I wasted all those years because I didn’t.. but the love I wasted on a man who couldn’t love himself is lost with those years.”
“He makes an animated smile and points to it.
I realize he’s telling me to smile.
As if smiling would make my tornado go away. As if what’s on the surface matters.”
“It was like he was drunk, but he’s not a drinker. It’s one thing to reach for a bottle and become a monster – a mean drunk – but it’s another thing to have that bottle inside you. A rage organ.”
“I don’t want to tell him it’s a mental health break because even though I know that breaking your brain is the same as breaking your arm, I’m still ashamed that my brain is broken.”
“I like making things because when I was born, everything I was born into was already made for me. Art let me surround myself with something different. Something new. Something real. Something that was mine.”
“I guess it doesn’t really matter what kind of umbrella you have – as long as it keeps the bullshit off you.”
Hope you are keeping well? Tell me what you been up to?
