Hey Guys! I have chosen The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky for this week’s book. I’ve probably mentioned it a thousand times before, but Perks is one of my most favorite books ever. This book has a lot of great quotes and I’m so happy I’m sharing my favorite ones with you!

“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we came from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I just thought this quote was deep and I think we all question who we are sometimes and this quote just kind of sums up that we can’t choose who we are but we can decide what we do.

“It’s just I don’t want to be somebody’s crush. If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it too.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I like this quote because of what was happening when it was said and that something I had been waiting on throughout the whole book finally happened.

“It’s strange because sometimes I read a book, and I think I am the people in the book.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I think as a book lover, this quote just spoke to me. I mean we all have read a book that’s just made us a part of it because of how relatable it is or something else.

“He’s a wallflower, you see things. You keep quiet about them. And you understand.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I liked this quote because it was one of those moments where you figure out a book’s title.

“I just want you to know that you’re very special…and the only reason I am telling you is that I don’t know if anyone else ever has.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I don’t think I should have to explain this one, but I think everyone should be told they’re special or loved or that they just exist all the time.

“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I just get this quote on some level and I guess that’s why I like it.

“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I like this quotes because of what was happening when it was said and how much Charlie had changed by this point.

“Because things change. And friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I think I liked this quote because of how true it is.

“I don’t know if you’ve ever felt like that. That you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. Or just not exist. Or just not be aware that you do exist. Or something like that. I think wanting that is very morbid, but I want it when I get like this.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I just felt so much for Charlie when he was writing this.

“I am very interested and fascinated by how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

“Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

Again, just true.

“And even if everybody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.”

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

I absolutely love this quote and I don’t really know how to explain why.
