Over on my Tumblr blog I like to do this thing where I post quotes from the books that I am reading. Over time, I have noticed that I tend to either go for quotes that are making a statement, or more commonly are wise. Usually the quotes I like are relatable to real life. So, now that I’m blogging more here, I’ve decided that as regularly as possible I’m going to stick some up here too.
What can I say? I just really love quotes.
This quote is from the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel – Deadlocked, which I did a reaction to the other day. While I wasn’t that into the book, I just read this quote and had to write it down, because I blurt things out without thinking sometimes, and I wanted to remember not to because it leads me into trouble!
I thought that was a pity, but I kept my mouth shut. There was nothing to gain and everything to lose by adding my two cents. They were grown-ups. (Page 49)
It is a very simple, but true statement, and I know that it is something I forget way too often.
