I keep a notebook with what I call ‘keepers‘.
Keepers are lines from books that I am reading that stand out as profound (to me at least), or are memorable for other reasons.
I am currently reading the novel “Tethered” by Amy MacKinnon
The keeper is on page 88 and is about children.. it reads:
“Before life, they were tethered by an umbilical cord, after, by hope.”
