10 Quotes On Words, Life, Sadness, Love By Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes on life and love by American novelist, Jonathan Safran Foer to feed your soul today.

I found a new author today while mining through quotes as I do every other day and you know when a string of thoughts penned by a totally random person just tugs at the heart, the need to stalk the writer of said thoughts gets pretty strong and that I did. Well, word-talking was what I did specifically.

His name is Jonathan Safran Foer, an American novelist whose existence I've only come to know about just a few hours back! A certain style of writing reveals a way of looking at the world and how I love when words, arranged in a particular manner, pull me in as though they're from my head but captured through the mind of another human being.

10 Jonathan Safran Foer Quotes I Love:

There's nothing wrong with not understanding yourself.

Songs are as sad as the listener.

This is love, she thought, isn't it? When you notice someone's absence and hate that absence more than anything? More, even, than you love his presence?

Let love write on you for awhile.

Compassion is a muscle that gets stronger with use, and the regular exercise of choosing kindness over cruelty would change us.

Everything that's born has to die, which means our lives are like skyscrapers. The smoke rises at different speeds, but they're all on fire, and we're all trapped.
