Quotes from Three Daughters of Eve by Elif Shafak

Follow the link to read my review about - Three Daughters of Eve by Elif Shafak

“The highest activity a human being can attain is learning for understanding, because to understand is to be free.”

"‘I’ll let you in on a secret. When it comes to the Almighty, grown-ups are no less confused than kids.”

“If you're telling me I should accept things as they are... that nations like obedient good wives, should also give up their dreams, their fantasies... then your grasp of international relations - and women for that matter - is weaker than I thought.”

"The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me"

"Believers favour answers over questions, clarity over certainty. Atheists, more or less the same. Funny, when it comes to God, Whom we know next to nothing about, very few of us actually say, 'I don't know.'"

"The moment one was told not to enter the fortieth door or not to peek into a chest, that door was bound to be unlatched, that chest had to be prised open."

“God was a maze without a map, a circle without a center; the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that never seemed to fit together. If only she could solve this mystery, she could bring meaning to senselessness, reason to madness, order to chaos, and perhaps, too, she could learn to be happy.”

"There is no feeling of lightness like the one that comes after conquering a long-held fear"

Bibliophile and Bibliomaniac



Bibliophile
 
 


  

A person who collects or has a great love of books. A bibliophile does not always ‘collects” books. He/she loves to read books whatever big or small numbers they have or can their hands on.


Bibliomaniac
 
 


  

A person who collects and is obsessive over books. The most common symptom of a person being a Bibliomaniac is the greed of habit of collecting each and every version of same book. These people not necessary read, they might just be collecting the books!!



This popular quote sum’s up the difference between the two.

"The bibliophile is the master of his books, the bibliomaniac their slave."
~Henry Ward Beecher

Guy 2: Dude you suffer from Abibliophobia :D :D :D :D

I participated in April A to Z Challenge back in 2015 and to my own surprise, completed successfully for two blogs – Quotes – Pregnancy and A to Z Challenge 2015 - WOMEN in A to Z PROFESSIONS . Then, the consequent year, the over confident me participated again and failed miserably - April A to Z Challenge 2016 - "WOMEN and ISSUES AROUND THEM". I did have some of my favorite posts that year despite of failing in the challenge.

This year, I prepared my mind at the very last moment and decided to go for it again. Coming to the theme reveal, theme for this year would be my other blog’s genre - BOOKS. I shall be posting quotes related to books and reading.


Thus, the Theme for this year is - “Books and Reading”. Fingers crossed!!!

Guess what, my other blog is also participating again. Do check out the theme reveal there – It’s again also related to books – Amita’s Pen. May be, both together are lucky again and hit the nail
