Vintage T5W | Book Quotes

This is Vintage Top 5 Wednesday where I pick my favourite past topics and finally do them. This one was quotes, but I don't want to individually sum up each quote. I will leave little comments on some, but each of these just made me stop reading and think. That's why they are some of my favourite quotes.

1. “Perhaps it is the greatest grief, after all, to be left on earth when another is gone.”
― Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles
This just summed up the characters grief for me and broke my heart when I originally read it.

2. 'When is a monster not a monster?
Oh, when you love it.'
 - Caitlyn Siehl, Start Here

3. “Sometimes we get through adversity only by imagining what the world might be like if our dreams should ever come true.”
Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

4. 'Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. We've got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.'
- D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover
What a first chapter for a book!
5.'Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning-- So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.'
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby 
Just the perfect near ending to a near perfect book. You can listen to the quote below from the latest adaptation with the score.
