When I was growing up, there was one book that always stood out to me; The Lion, The Witch , and The Wardrobe. Isn’t it funny what stays with you? I mean, of all books I’ve read, THAT one has stayed with me. It’s the magical wonder and wild imagination thing I suppose. I remember the literary quote, “Peter, just because some man in a red coat gives you a sword it doesn’t make you a hero!” It’s sorta like that song, ‘Don’t Call Him a Cowboy, Until you see him ride. Cause a Stetson hat and them fancy boots don’t tell you what’s inside’. Just because you have money or live in a big fancy house doesn’t make you all that. It’s how you live that makes you who you are. Gosh, I guess that’s a little deep but that’s why the quote has stayed with me from the book. It’s how I think. Does that make sense??
Anyways, Sony wants to hear words that move you. Literary words that make you think, feel, and question. You can register and add your own literary moments from books that you’ve read. You can see a few words that move me in the box below. One of my favorites is from the book, 8 Second with Lane Frost, a bullrider who gets killed by a bull during a ride. His very good friend Tuff (also a championship bullrider), said the words, “We’re a tradition, last of the dying breed.” I relate that with the cowboy life. There’s tradition in the cowboy way of life. I hope it never ends…..
