I am still working on the review for this book, in the meantime here are some things I highlighted while reading. Some were selected because they’re true bordering on cliché, others for their irony and yet others because I simply like them.
Share your selected quotes from this book and your thoughts on my selection in the comments.
“You have not yet grasped the importance of knowing how to fall.”
“Learn to love your failures, Marcus, because it is your failures that will make you who you are. It is your failures that will give meaning to your victories.”
“Love, love, always love! But what is love? It doesn’t mean anything! Love is just a trick invented by men so they don’t have to do their own laundry!”
“You are only Marcus Goldman. And if every writer had to limit his writing to his own experiences, literature would be impoverished and would lose all its meaning. We’re allowed to write about anything that affects us. And no-one can judge us for that. We’re writers because we do one thing differently, one thing that everyone around us knows how to do: write.“
“Facebook users are just people wearing sandwich boards for free. It would be stupid not to use them.”
