This is such a beautifully written book with some lovely quotes, it’s hard to choose just one to feature on this blog but I loved how one particular protagonist voices her regret at not having treated her mother’s foibles with compassion.
J’aurais dû être plus gentille—I should have been more kind. That is something a person will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old, Ah, I wish I was not good to that person. You will never think that.
~ And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
I think this is so true, don’t you? You never regret a kindness.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
