Hey Friends,

Well, most of us love a particular passage/paragraph/quote from the books we like... Sometimes those lines mean a lot to us because we tend to get philosophical with them.... or they are just so well written that they stay with us forever.

I want you all to share such lines/passages if you can remember them.... Doesn't have to be exact words but something you remember because the thought was just so phenomenal!

Same here, usually when I read books, I mutter to myself - that was so cool, I'll remember that one, but now that someone mentioned it - I can't recollect even one!

I am sure they'll come to my head soon! I will post them when they do! :-)

Just like all of you, even I don't remember all the lines that touched my heart, but one of the latest books I read had a beautiful passage.. I just loved that passage.... Since I own that book, I'll type it up right here... It's from "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"

It's a grandmother who's telling her grandson about what happened a night before she lost her sister in the U.S. Air bombing of Dresden.  She and her sister were lying in the bed just before sleeping and here's what she said:

"It was late and we were tired.
We assumed there would be other nights.
Anna's (Grandmother's sister) breathing started to slow, but I still wanted to talk.
She rolled onto her side.
I said, I want to tell you something.
She said, You can tell me tomorrow.
I had never told her how much I loved her.
She was my sister.
We slept in the same bed.
There was never a right time to say it.
It was always unnecessary.
......
I thought about waking her.
But it was unnecessary.
There would be other nights.
And how can you say I love you to someone you love?
I rolled onto my side and fell asleep next to her.
Here is the point of everything I have been trying to tell you, Oskar.
It's always necessary."

-Mahi
