    Those are some good quotes.

    Most of my favorites tend to be snarky and/or outright insults. There’s a KSR line that made me cackle. I can’t remember it word for word, but it was something like “Your mind is like the rings of Saturn – a million miles wide and an inch deep.”

    A single good quote can make a book in your mind, I think.

    • Gayathri

      I agree. There is a quote from the Grown up of Gillian Flynn that is something like ‘you are sad means you have too much time in your hands.’ That is one quote I will always remember when I talk of the book.
