The Kite Runner is a book that is very close to me. You can’t read this book without crying a bucket full of tears for a million times. It’s emotional, painful and heart-wrenching and I think that these are the qualities of a good book and if you haven’t read it yet then what are you waiting for?!
The Kite Runner is a book of a story about pain, loss, love, sorrow, guilt and regret and most importantly – friendship. The book is a treasure of words and so, today, I’m going to share a few of my favourite treasured lines from this heart-breaking book.
- It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime…
- Better to get hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie.
- I’m so afraid. Because I’m so profoundly happy. Happiness like this is frightening…They only let you this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.
- It’s wrong what they say about the past, I’ve learned, about how you can bury it. Because the past claws its way out.
And my most favourite line is:
“For you, a thousand times over”
If you have read the novel then you must know the pain and the love that this one line holds and that’s why this line is so loving to me.
If you haven’t read it then do read it because it’s wonderful!
