words worth reading

A few of my favorite excerpts from Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin:

“When you are in a relationship, you are aware that it might end. You might grow apart, find someone else, simply fall out of love. But a friendship isn't a zero-sum game, and as such, you assume that it will last forever, especially an old friendship. You take its permanence for granted, which might be the very thing so dear about it.”

"Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It's amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn't even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn't even know had a particular smell."

"“You’ll never regret being a good friend.”

“Every couple has two stories - the edited one to be shared from the couch and the unabridged version best left alone.”

“Surely he knows we are all watching. That I am watching. It is always that way when you are in a group and someone decides to go for a swim or walk to the water. The ocean is a giant stage. It is natural that the others watch, if only for a moment."

  1. the excerpt about songs bringing back memories, so true! there's a country song by Trisha Yearwood called The Song Remembers When - the lyrics are so true. Take a listen if you've never heard it.

  4. something borrowed and something blue are two of my favorite books ever! have you read heart of the matter? im still unsure if it lived up to the others.
