once broken

There are those hearts, readers, that never mend again once they are broken. Or, if they do mend, they heal themselves in a crooked and lopsided way, as if sewn together by a careless craftsman.

(Kate DiCamillo – The Tale of Despereaux)

    i think everybody has, and most of them got tougher someway, though..😉
    yup, quote khas kate dicamillo ya, gayanya anak2, tapi maknanya sedih.

      hi JoV… this book is one of my favorites! It’s a children book, with funny parts as normally found in children books, but it also has a melancholic element, just a typlical style of Camillo I think.

  2. ah aku suka suka suka kisah despereaux!
    iya, sedih kutipannya tp maknanya dalem bgt, hiks..

    ‘the miraculous journey of edward tulane’ jg bagus dan sedih, mba..

      halo Dian…🙂
      sepertinay sceritanya Camillo emg selalu ada unsur sedihnya ya, semacam perasaan ditinggalkan atau merasa outsider gitu… tapi tetep suka!🙂
      wah aku blm baca tiger rising, sepertinya bukunya udah gak beredar lagi… beruntung kamu, Dian!
