the things we do

“The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you.” 
 ― R.J. Palacio, Wonder


  1. Love! Love the book. Love the author. Love the quote. Love the picture. Love the kid in the picture. Love the kid's mom :)

  2. I read that over at least 5 times and wondered how anyone could be so smart to put it into words. They just got the new puppy. I'm reading slowly as I don't want to miss a word! :-)
