Text Quotes
Evil almost always starts with small cruelties  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) I'm talking about those novels where the characters aren't really interesting and you don't care about them or anything they care about. It's those books I won't read anymore. There's too much else to read - books about people and things that matter, books about life and death  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) I was learning that when you're with someone who is dying, you may need to celebrate the past, live the present, and mourn the future all at the same time  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) He was the smartest and best-read person any of us had every known, but he wore his learning so lightly and had such curiosity about other people that he had the ability to make everyone around him feel smart and well-read  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) I often forget that other people's stories aren't simply introductions to my own more engaging, more dramatic, more relevant, and better-told tales, but rather ends in themselves, tales I can learn from or repeat or dissect or savor  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) That's one of the things books do. They help us talk. But they also give us something we can all talk about when we don't want to talk about ourselves  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) We all owe everyone for everything that happens in our lives. But it's not owing like a debt to one person - it's really that we owe everyone for everything. Our whole lives can change in an instant - so each person that keeps that from happening, no matter how small a role they play, is also responsible for all of it. Just by giving friendship and love, you keep the people around you from giving up - and each expression of friendship or love may be the one that makes all the difference  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) One of the many things I love about bound books is their sheer physicality. Electronic books live out of sight and out of mind. But printed books have body, presence.... I often seek electronic books, but they never come after me. They may make me feel, but I can't feel them. They are all soul with no flesh, no texture, and no weight  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) We're all in the end-of-your-life book-club, whether we acknowledge it or not; each book we read may well be the last, each conversation the final one  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) Books are the most powerful tool in the human arsenal, that reading all kinds of books, in whatever format you choose - electronic (even though that wasn't for her) or printed, or audio - is the grandest entertainment, and also is how you take part in human conversation  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) It's not that I liked lunacy for the sake of lunacy, but if a writer can truly surprise me without throwing logic completely out the window, then that writer has me for good. Most book surprises aren't surprising at all but follow a formula, like the dead body that's certain to lurch out of a wreck being explored by deep-sea divers in just about every book that involves wrecks and divers  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) Everyone doesn't have to do everything, " she told me. "People forget you can also express yourself by what you choose to admire and support. I've had so much pleasure from beautiful and challenging things created by other people, things I could never make or do. I wouldn't trade that for anything  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) ... two different kinds of Japanese psychotherapies, one based on getting people to stop using feelings as an excuse for their actions and the other based on getting people to practice gratitude  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) It's not hard to read about death abstractly. I do find it tough when a character I love dies, of course. You can truly miss characters. Not like you miss people, but you can still miss them  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) In Gilead, the narrator's friend's son describes himself not as an atheist but in "state of categorical unbelief. " He says, "I don't even believe God doesn't exist, if you see what I mean. " I pointed this passage out to Mom and said it closely matched my own views - I just didn't think about religion  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) You don’t have to have one emotion at a time  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) The greatest gift you can give anyone is your undivided attention  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) Reading isn’t the opposite of doing, it’s the opposite of dying  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) But it's one thing to feel that a book can speak beyond its particular time and place to something universal, and another to ignore the circumstances and time in or about which it was written  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) Throughout her life, whenever Mom was sad or confuse or disoriented, she could never concentrate on television, she said, but always sought refuge in a book. Books focused her mind, calmed her, took her outside of herself; television jangled her nerves  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) If you stayed at home, you might not get the opportunity to go to that place again. But if you went, you could always come back  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) But it takes so little to help people, and people really do help each other, even people with very little themselves. And it's not just about second chances. Most people deserve an endless number of chances  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) In December 2008, I had the book with me while we waited for Dr. O'Reilly. Mom had already finished it. Every time I put the book down to go grab some mocha, or check my email, or make a call, I returned to find Mom rereading it, sneakily wolfing down passages as though I'd left behind a bag of cookies, not a book, and she was scooping up crumbs behind my back  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) ... when you're with someone who is dying, you may need to celebrate the past, live the present, and mourn the future all at the same time  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) I will never be able to read my mothers favourite books without thinking of her - an when I pass them on or recommend them, I'll know that some of what made her goes with them; that some of my mother will live on in those readers, readers who may be inspired to love the way loved and do their own version of what she did in the world  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) Oh, dear - did I forget to mention that you can, indeed, have it all, but you need a lot of help!  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) I think it's because it shows that people - or hobbits, as the case may be - can find strength they didn't know they had  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) That's one of the amazing things great books like this do - they don't just get you to see the world differently, they get you to look at people, the people all around you, differently  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) She felt whatever emotions she felt, but feeling was never a useful substitute for doing, and she never let the former get in the way of the latter. If anything, she used her emotions to motivate her and help her concentrate. The emphasis for her was always on doing what needed to be done  (Will Schwalbe Quotes) Mindfulness - it isn't a trick or a gimmick. It's being present in the moment. When I'm with you, I'm with you. Right now. That's all. No more and no less  (Will Schwalbe Quotes)
