Popular Quotes

“Loving requires so much courage and so little expectation.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

 “Do you know that there’s a halfway world between each ending and each new beginning? It’s called the hurting time, Jean Perdu. It’s a bog; it’s where your dreams and worries and forgotten plans gather. Your steps are heavier during that time. Don’t underestimate the transition, Jeanno, between farewell and new departure. Give yourself the time you need. Some thresholds are too wide to be taken in one stride.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

“Books are more than doctors, of course. Some novels are loving, lifelong companions; some give you a clip around the ear; others are friends who wrap you in warm towels when you’ve got those autumn blues. And some…well, some are pink candy floss that tingles in your brain for three seconds and leaves a blissful voice. Like a short, torrid love affair.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

 “All the love, all the dead, all the people we’ve known. They are the rivers that feed our sea of souls. If we refuse to remember them, that sea will dry up too.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

 “We cannot decide to love. We cannot compel anyone to love us. There’s no secret recipe, only love itself. And we are at its mercy–there’s nothing we can do.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

 “Do we only decide in retrospect that we’ve been happy? Don’t we notice when we’re happy, or do we realize only much later that we were?”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

“Reading—an endless journey; a long, indeed never-ending journey that made one more temperate as well as more loving and kind.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

 “Perdu reflected that is was a common misconception that booksellers looked after books. They look after people.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

“With all due respect, what you read is more important in the long term than the man you marry, ma chère Madame.”
― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop

“Memories are like wolves. You can’t lock them away and hope they leave you alone.”

One Final Bonus – Nina George Quote 

“Kästner was one reason I called my book barge the Literary Apothecary,” said Perdu. “I wanted to treat feelings that are not recognized as afflictions and are never diagnosed by doctors. All those little feelings and emotions no therapist is interested in, because they are apparently too minor and intangible. The feeling that washes over you when another summer nears its end. Or when you recognize that you haven’t got your whole life left to find out where you belong. Or the slight sense of grief when a friendship doesn’t develop as you thought, and you have to continue your search for a lifelong companion. Or those birthday morning blues. Nostalgia for the air of your childhood. Things like that.”

― Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop
