Quote it Sunday | The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

“Quote it Saturday” was a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, but it’s currently inactive. It’s a weekly meme where you can add as many quotes as you wish, from any source you want.

Hey guys,

I wanted to start this month with a WWW Wednesday post but I was too late to finish the draft so I’m keeping it for the next week. Since it’s a new month and I want to get back to blogging again, I’ve decided to stick to my Wednesday and Sunday posts as per usual. I’m still writing my Feb wrap-up and might post it on Monday. 

This is a reminiscent post with ten quotes from the book that still feels like an illusion to hold. I picked The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern after a year and only remembered bits and parts of it. The writing still pulls me through and feels poetic like the first time, but I miss the illusions and the circus crew. 

The circus arrivess without warning

No announcements precede it, no paper notices on downtown posts and billboards, no mentions or advertisements in local newspapers. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

The finest of pleasures are always the unexpceted ones

There may be decisions to make, and surprises in store. Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. The future is never set in stone, remember that.

Secrets have power. And that power diminishes when they are shared, so they are best kept and kept well.

We cannot feel the bars unless we push against them.

For every beautiful tent he creates, she builds one in return.

I would have written you, myself, if I could put down in words everything I want to say to you. A sea of ink would not be enough.

Though I have seen a great deal of sights, traveled a number of the available paths, there are always corners that remain unexplored, doors that remain unopened.

Each subsequent storyteller puts his or her mark upon it.

The truest tales require time and familirity to become what they are.
