Quotations || Astonishing Beauty

It was astonishing. Everything was astonishing. The setting sun was illuminating each blade of grass. It was reflecting off the girl’s glasses, making a halo of light around the girl’s round head, setting the whole world on fire.

The squirrel thought, When did things become so beautiful? And if it has been this way all along, how is it that I never noticed before?

– Kate DiCamillo, Flora & Ulysses
