Memorable Monday ~ Before I Fall


Memorable Monday is a meme hosted by Escape in a Good Book.  I'm excited to join in on this one because I love quotes, which was the driving force behind the creation of Memorable Mondays.  I thank the ladies at Escape in a Good Book.

So... how do you participate?  It's simple ~

1) Share a quote that has captured your interest lately in a Memorable Monday post on your blog.

2) Come back here and leave the link to your post in the comment box below.  If you don't have a blog, I'd still love to hear read your quote.  Leave it in the comment box instead of a link to a non-existent blog.  :)

3) Visit other participants if you have time.  It's always nice to have visitors.  There's no overstaying your welcome this way, and they don't have to offer the obligatory drinks.  Or clean.

4) If you tweet your posts, feel free to use the hashtag #MemorableMonday.

This week's choice:

Before I Fall 

"Is what I did really so much worse than what anybody else does? Is it really so much worse than what you do? Think about it."

This quote struck me because the entire time I was reading up to this point I kept thinking about how the narrator is not that nice of a person. I read this and thought holy schnikies... she was just mean to me. But, I got to thinking about myself, especially as a teenager, and realized that there were definitely some things I did that wouldn't exactly be considered "nice". So yeah... it made me re-think how I felt about her. :)

Any quotes strike you recently?



  1. It is a quote that perhaps forces us to view our own actions in a different light. I wasn't always Miss nice girl either, never a bully but I was one of those who never shunned from voicing my opinion.

    1. I think it's a good thing to read things that make us look inward sometimes. I hope no one ever thought I was a bully. I'd feel so horrible if they did. But I like to think I've grown since then. :)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Great quote! This seems like a fun meme :)
