Time for Memorable Monday! It’s a meme hosted by Escape in a Book, where you may share quote(s) that you think deserve(s) a place in the spotlight.
For today, I am sharing a favorite quote from Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. It’s the second Green book I read after Paper Towns. I like his writing because his characters are very relatable. I’m no longer an adolescent but reading his characters makes me want to live vicariously through them and be friends them, if only I’m still their age.
Here is the quote from the book:
‘Getting a life’ is something only a complete idiot could believe. Like you can just drive to a store and get a life. See it in its shiny box and look inside the plastic window and catch a glimpse of yourself in a new life and say, ‘Wow, I look much happier — I think this is the life I need to get!’, take it to the counter, ring it up, put it on your credit card. If getting a life was that easy, we’d be one blissed-out race.
