Quotables #1: On Love and Growing Up

Hi all and welcome to a new feature I'm trying out on the blog - Quotables!  Authors have an amazing ability to put together words that perfectly capture our feelings or make us think.  I was inspired to create a feature to highlight some of my favorite quotes from recent reads and why they speak to me!


Why it speaks to me: Dark Matter is a sci-fi novel, but it's also a love story.  Sometimes I sit and think about how my husband and I met and all the events that had to take place first so that moment could happen.  If either us had made a different decision at any point in our life, our paths might never have crossed.  Of all the people in the world and all the things that could have happened, we met each other, and this quote perfectly describes that for me.



Why it speaks to me: I love this quote because it talks about how there is no time limit on love.  A year together or 50 years together, we will always want more time with the one we love.


Why it speaks to me: I think a lot of people my age can relate to this one.  Thirty always kind of seemed like this magic number, the age at which we think we'll have everything on track that we want - career, marriage, family, whatever.  But once you actually reach 30, you realize it's just an arbitrary number.
  
Which of these quotes is your favorite?  Can you relate to any of them?

  1. This is a fun feature. That last quote is so true. I think I felt like 30 was a magic age where you are finally all set but that isn't life at all.

    1. Thank you! 30 always seemed like this huge deal, and it always sounded so old, too! Until I reached 30 and realized it wasn't that bad!

  3. Great new feature and I love all of the quotes you've selected. I can totally relate to all of them, especially the one about turning 30. I had always had it built up in my mind as this huge adult milestone but it really is just another birthday. And I'm well beyond 30 now and still trying to figure things out, haha :)

    1. Yeah, I have a feeling I'll be figuring things out for awhile yet, too!

  4. You're so right about how we think that 30 will be some sort of magical age where we're completely an adult---it doesn't work that way!
