Weekend Words showcases inspiring quotes from books, about writing, and about life. This feature will happen every weekend, either on Saturday or Sunday, depending on my schedule. While this is a reading/writing centric blog, this feature doesn’t have to be focused on those areas–it is intentionally open-ended to give bloggers a chance to say what’s on their mind.
Everyone should feel free to take part–it would honestly make my day! Complete instructions can be found on the feature’s page.
1. A Powerful Quote From a Recent Read
“Maybe the world isn’t full of signs so much as it’s full of people trying to use whatever evidence they can find to convince themselves of what they hope to be true.” — Jennifer E. Smith, Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between
2. A Quote that Inspired or Influenced Me This Week
“Be there for others, but never leave yourself behind.” — Dodinsky
3. Something I’ve Been Wanting to Say
I kind of already said this here, but Thanksgiving is simultaneously screwed up and really important. We should all try to be thankful for little things more often in our lives, but we should also take some time out of our busy lives to educate ourselves about the darker parts of America’s history.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend! What quotes have inspired you recently?
