Friday's Finest

Friday's Finest is a new meme hosted by Steff & Justine from A Bookful of Thoughts.

Rules:
~Post a quote that really stuck to you after reading it in a book.
~Make sure it isn't a spoiler!
~If you'd like, expand on what you think it means and why you chose it.

"It's not that I believe everything happens for a reason," she said. "It's just that... I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is."


I just adore The Truth About Forever in general, it is one of my top three favorite books of all time and this quote really stands out to me because it's such a contrast to what the world normally thinks and wants to believe. People want perfection, not chaos and they don't see the holes in the road for what they are, whether they be learning devices or just low points that make you appreciate the good things.

Without hardships we wouldn't know what joy is.
