Time to Quote (#2)

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Picture source: Goodreads
This (hopefully) weekly post is partly inspired by Quote it Saturday (Freda's Voice). I will be choosing a favourite quote – sometimes a few - every weekend, share it with you and explain why I think it’s special, beautiful or thought-provoking. Enjoy! P.S. The quotes won’t have any spoilers.

This week I chose the following quote:
"I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people."
-The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

I couldn’t agree more with Charlie, the main character of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The point in life is to do things your own way – put in a clich├ęd way, to listen to your heart and follow its advice. It really isn’t living if it feels like it’s going against the core of your being. Everyone should aim for what brings them the most satisfaction and personal joy without harming others in the process. Once you figure out your own life, what makes you happy and angry and sad, you can decide who you want to share your honest self with. I love this quote because though its words are simple it really has the meaning of life summarized in one sentence.
