I, along with everyone else in the world, read The Help this summer.

“No one tells us, girls who don’t go on dates, that remembering can be almost as good as what actually happens. Mother climbs all the way to the third floor and stands over me in my bed, but I act like I’m still asleep. Because I just want to remember it awhile.”

I loved that quote so much that I gasped when I read it and then proceeded to read it again 3 times.  It is just so true, is it not?

I love that quote! I started The Help a year ago and I have yet to finish the last two chapters - I don't want it to end!

I actually haven't read it yet! But I might buy it at the airport tomorrow since I'm going to Miami...I'm sure I'll devour it during the flight, from what I hear!

"grits is just a vessel for whatever it is you really wanna be eating." -that one really got me.

Ohhh... I'm looking for a new book. So, it's good? Maybe I'll hunt it out. :) I'm so jealous of your baby G. I always wanted one as a kid but my parents never caved and I never really forgave them.

I loved The Help as well, and what a melancholy quote this is. I love it- it is so lovely and honest.

Barbara said...

I'm so close to finishing this book, I can't put it down! That quote just sums up that feeling so well.
