Thursday Quotables: May 23rd

I have just been thinking how I want to make note of more quotes when I read.  I can highlight when I read on my Kindle and I want to use that feature more.  I think I may want to invest in a reading journal as well where I can write down quotes that speak to me.  I have read a few books lately where I want to savor them and having some quotes from them would do me some good.

I came across a meme for Thursday called Thursday Quotables.  Books Kat Likes has joined in on the weekly fun and came up with this great description of what this is…

This feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines will be, and you’re invited to join in! Created by Lisa, over at Bookshelf Fantasies.

You should join in too!  Let’s all share quotes together!  For my first quote I have chosen a quote from the book The Scent Keeper by Erica Bauermeister.

Scent Keeper - Cover Art

People lie, Emmeline, but smells never do, my father had told me.

Ok, ok, ok…one more from the same novel…

Smells don’t care what the mind or heart wants, however. Scents will find their way around the darkness of closed eyes, slipping past barricades of thought. The body is their accomplice. We can live without food for weeks, and water for days, but try not to breathe and the lungs mutiny.

What is a quote from a book that has stood out to you??  Let me know in the comments, I can’t wait to collect more quotes!
