Simply Sunday is a meme run by Books for a Delicate Eternity, where we share our favourite quotes of the week; whether it be from a book, a poem, a song – wherever!
My Simple thing this Sunday is a quote from a book I read this week “Crash Into You” by Katie McGarry. You can find my review here.
“Maybe this is what happens when you fall in love. On the outside a lighter is nothing amazing, but it holds all the ingredients that can create something wonderful. With a few pushes in the right direction, you can inspire something so brilliant that it pushes back the darkness. ”
I love this quote. I really do. It’s a comment on love, and how it can make the plain, ordinary things beautiful. Not just that, though. It comments on how love can push away the “darkness” – all your inner demons and self doubt. What I love most about this quote is how it is explaining it through a lighter. The symbolism of addiction and drugs. I love how it demonstrates that anything and everything can be beautiful.
