so i have finished reading the perks of being a wallflower and i must say that i am so glad we chose this book. i had never read it before and i found it very moving and full of wisdom that is relevant not just to someone around the age of the narrator (a freshman in highschool) but to anyone of any age. everyone can relate to the feelings of loneliness, sadness and longing that charlie experiences, and those emotions can occur at any age. deep down, i think we are all searching for that moment of ultimate freedom and happiness- when you truly feel infinite. throughout the week i’ll be posting inspirational quotes from the book along with images that it conjured up in my brain…please feel free to share your thoughts on the book in the comments section!
“it’s much easier not to know things sometimes.”
“…it’s just that sometimes people use thought to not participate in life.”
“we accept the love we think we deserve.”
