Today I am featuring the lovely Carlisa from Confessions of Carlisa, who is sharing with us some of her favourite quotes from books. Let’s begin!
I love quotes and words and everything in between. Seriously, they’re my favorite just because of their power. Words are literally just ink on a page or perhaps pixels on a screen. They are arbitrary. The different letters have no significance by themselves…but strung together in words and sentences and paragraphs and books…they can do amazing things. They can evoke very real emotions and move people to action. They bring about images in your head. And that’s amazing. So here are some of my favorite quotes from books. Enjoy them…because I do.
I am currently nineteen years of age and studying at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I am studying my favorite thing: words. Aka, English. I’m also minoring in Editing and Digital Humanities. I am from the corny state of Indiana, and before that, the cheesy state of Wisconsin. Haha, I’m cheesy and corny. I like that.
I love to do all things creative: write, read (a lot), finger paint, play piano, sing in the shower, chase butterflies, long walks at sunset, dance around the kitchen, pin crafts that maybe I’ll actually do someday, dream, Just Dance 2015, sled, make sandcastles, bake, obstacle courses in my bedroom (aka never clean my room), play with my puppy, sew (surprisingly, I have a gross story with that one), tickle fights, watch funny YouTube videos, play with kids, card/board games, creatively find ways to avoid doing homework/chores, write book reviews, try to make a list of creative things to do (…). Basically, I do it all. Just kidding. But being creative is what motivates me. I find inspiration in it and I find happiness in it.
