Tender is the Night


F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night is a good read, his descriptions are brilliant which is what kept me interested.

Here are a couple of quotes that I found interesting:
"His nose was somewhat pointed and there was never any doubt at whom he was looking or talking - and this is a flattering attention, for who looks at us? - glances fall upon us, curious or disinterested, nothing more." (I simply loved this one, it just feels so true!!)
Page 17

"He tried breaking into other dialogues, but it was like continually shaking hands with a glove from which the hand had been withdrawn."
Page 29

Loved the quotes :)
I remember one in the novel I was reading..here:
"I've always figured there are two main indicators of maturity. One is the ability to laugh at yourself. Most people take themselves and their lives a lot more seriously than circumstances call for, have trouble seeing the ultimate absurdity of the whole business. I keep myself amused by laughing at all the dumb things I do. And I do a lot of them, So I'm pretty well entertained most of the time."


Love it :) anf I loooove quotations from novels!
Keep them coming please!! :)
