The Past Is Nothing But A Weight

There’s no shortage of wisdom in Lauren Oliver’s Delirium, and this quote is just one more example of this.  We’ve shared many quotes from the trilogy with you simply because it’s so quotable.  It’s refreshing to find a book that is full of such lyrical lines that are also so very thought-provoking.  The complete quote is as follows:

“The past is nothing but a weight. It will build inside of you like a stone. If you hear the past speaking to you, feel it tugging at your back and running its fingers up your spine, the best thing to do is run.”

Keep moving forward, friends.
