Review: 365 Days of Wonder by R.J. Palacio

tumblr_n43w4pcom11sf2cljo1_12801I love quotes with a fiery passions, which is why I somehow always end up looking at the quotes on my Goodreads. I’m a quote collector.

As Cheryl Strayed wrote in Brave Enough:

“The best quotes don’t speak to one particular truth, but rather to universal truths that resonate—across time, culture, gender, generation, and situation—in our own hearts and minds.”

This book is a collection of precepts that Mr. Browne has gathered over the years along with some essays in which he touches upon the themes presented within. For instance: kindness, strength of character, overcoming adversity, or simply doing good in the world.

This collection features multiple quotes that really resonated with me, while others I had to read multiple times to get the message across.
But in the end I managed to capture the ones that left me pondering the most:
