Anyway, today's choice is kind of strange, because it says that I'm supposed to pick my favorite quote from my favorite book... but that's sort of impossible. I have 400 favorite books, depending on the day. Harry Potter is usually where I end up, just because it's my favorite series, but I'm trying to use non-HP for most of this. So, I decided to choose my favorite quote from an amazing book that has always stuck with me.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Great googily moogily, doesn't this quote encompass adolescence in the best and worst way? I love it so much. It's the book quote equivalent of the song "We Are Young" by fun. It's just a little slice of perfection in the middle of this book that's a little piece of perfection that subtly and wonderfully blows you away. It's been years since I last read it, but I've carried it with me since. I'm terribly excited for the movie (and not just because Emma Watson is in it!).
And now I kind of want this as a tattoo...
ALSO, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, here's one of my favorite songs! It's written by an Irish man, sung by a different Irish man. For some reason, it feels like a fitting song to include in this post as well.
