It’s Sunday that only means one thing, time to share some quotes!!!
Today’s quotes are from the book The Sound of Things Falling by Juan Gabriel Vásquez
“There is no more disastrous mania, no more dangerous whim, than the speculation over roads not taken.”
“Experience, or what we call experience, is not the inventory of our pains, but rather the learned sympathy towards the pain of others.”
“The saddest thing that can happen to a person is to find out their memories are lies.”
“Remembering tires a person out. this is something they don’t teach us. Exercising one’s memory is an exhausting activity. It draws our energy and wears down our muscles.”
“The kind of sadness we tolerate because it appears at happy moments”
“What the eye doesn’t see, the heart doesn’t grieve over.”
“The I realized no one wants to hear heroic stories, but everyone likes to be told about someone else’s misery.”
