Quote Corner #25: Daisy Jones & The Six

Happy Tuesday, my lovely readers! I hope you’re all having a great week. 🙂
Yes, yes, I know that I just read this book less than two months ago, but there were so many quotes that I fell in love with that I couldn’t help but talk about them again!! ❤
I hope you enjoy!

She had written something that felt like I could have written it, except I knew I couldn’t have. I wouldn’t have come up with something like that. Which is what we all want from art, isn’t it? When someone pins down something that feels like it lives inside us? Takes a piece of your heart out and shows it to you? It’s like they are introducing you to a part of yourself.

Passion is…it’s fire. And fire is great, man. But we’re made of water. Water is how we keep living. Water is what we need to survive. My family was my water. I picked water. I’ll pick water every time. And I wanted Daisy to find her water. Because I couldn’t be it.

“I had absolutely no interest in being somebody else’s muse.
I am not a muse.
I am the somebody.
End of fucking story.”

And I really think Billy loved her the same way she loved him. I really do. When they were in the same place at the same time, you could tell he was just so taken with her. He’d stay quiet and let her be the one to talk. And I always noticed that he used to squeeze the lime into her drink before he handed it to her whenever we were all out somewhere. He’d take his own lime and squeeze it into her glass, too. He’d squeeze the two wedges in and then throw them in with the ice. It seemed like a beautiful thing to have, somebody giving you their lime wedge. I mean, I hate lime, actually. But you get the point.

You have these lines you won’t cross. But then you cross them. And suddenly you possess the very dangerous information that you can break the rule and the world won’t instantly come to an end. You’ve taken a big, black, bold line and you’ve made it a little bit gray. And now every time you cross it again, it just gets grayer and grayer until one day you look around and you think, “There was a line here once.”

“I am not going to sit around sweating my ass off just so men can feel more comfortable. It’s not my responsibility to not turn them on. It’s their responsibility to not be an asshole.”

Ahh, I love these quotes so much! This book was written in such a unique formatting and I couldn’t have loved it more. It created a wonderfully atmospheric and immersive story that felt incredibly realistic. I’m still so heartbroken over the fact that Daisy Jones and the Six is not a real band.
I am ecstatic to read more of Taylor Jenkin Reid’s books in the future so that I can experience her brilliant writing style again!
I’m also very excited to see this story come to life as a television show on Amazon Prime! The cast is looking great so far! 😀
