Words Wednesday [19]

A chance for me to highlight some awesome book quotes! This week's quote is from Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen

"You should never be surprised when someone treats you with respect, you should expect it."

I like this quote but I also feel that its a bit.... I don't know presumptuous? Like "Hey everyone! Yeah that's right RESPECT ME!" I don't know. Maybe its because I don't get a lot of respect in my everyday life? That's what happens when you're only 5' tall. Everyone treats you like a Jr. Higher...... Maybe my view of respect is skewed because of that. So thoughts? Should we just expect to be respected? Or do you think we should have to earn it? Personally I think respect needs to be earned at least in some respects. 

Quote besides, this is my favorite Sarah Dessen book. It totally spoke to me when I was going through a really tough time in Jr. High. I. LOVE. IT.

  1. I read this quote yesterday while reading You Against Me by Jenny Downham and I loved it.

    "It seemed strange that two people could be in the very same place and see totally different things."

  2. I love Sarah Dessen books, they were some of my favs in middle and high school. My favorite is Just Listen, but this one is second.
