I’m the type of reader who never highlight passages or memorize quotes. I would go so far as to say, I never really care too much about them. But sometimes, there are words that capture a moment or emotion so perfectly even my forgetful brain couldn’t help but remember the lines and relive all the feels.
Here are a few more unforgettable quotes from my favorite books.

I wanted to tell them that I’d never had a friend, not ever, not a real one. Until Dante. I wanted to tell them that I never knew that people like Dante existed in the world, people who looked at the stars, and knew the mysteries of water, and knew enough to know that birds belonged to the heavens and weren’t meant to be shot down from their graceful flights by mean and stupid boys. I wanted to tell them that he had changed my life and that I would never be the same, not ever. And that somehow it felt like it was Dante who had saved my life and not the other way around. I wanted to tell them that he was the first human being aside from my mother who had ever made me want to talk about the things that scared me. I wanted to tell them so many things and yet I didn’t have the words.
So I just stupidly repeated myself. “Dante’s my friend.”Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sáenz
