“Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?" Mo had said..."As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar.”

Weekly Quote 5/10/14—The Secret Life of Bees!

In reading The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd I have found some amazing quotes. One of those quotes is about truth and lies.

“Knowing can be a curse on a person’s life. I’d traded in a pack of lies for a pack of truth, and I didn’t know which one was heavier. Which one took the most strength to carry around? It was a ridiculous question, though, because once you know the truth, you can’t ever go back and pick up your suitcase of lies. Heavier or not, the truth is yours now.”

In thinking about this quote it is my opinion that one should always tell the truth; that way one never needs to debate which is heavier to carry, the truth or the lies. What do you think?


  1. What a beautiful quote. I loved The Secret Life of Bees, too. And I'm a big believer in telling the truth, too! :)

  2. This is a great book.

    As for your question. Very good question, but a tough one to answer. Sometimes silence is the best option.

    Have a fabulous day and a happy mothers day. :)
