I love that Jenn started this tag and I get to finish it. Each of these quotes speaks so much to each of us in such different ways.
I had a really difficult time picking a specific quote for today. I was up in the air between so many different choices. I finally settled for one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books.
I chose this quote because it just feels so right for the time. Red Rising is one of my favorite books and this quote is just a small glimpse of why this is such a great book.

Her face is easier to see as the night fades through the clear roof. It is alive, on fire.
“If you led the others to freedom. The things you could do, Darrow. The things you could make happen.”
She pauses and I see her eyes are glistening.
“It chills me. You have been given so, so much, but you set your sights so low.”
Pierce Brown, Red Rising
