Before I start I want to thank Bexoxo for nominating me!
“I am always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though.”
This quote is from the novel The Catcher in the Rye I read it when I was in the 10th grade and I didn’t really care for it. I thought Holden was spoiled, I couldn’t relate to him or his privileged ways, and I didn’t understand why the novel was so controversial. I want to read it now as an adult to maybe understand it better. As a teen I thought I was so edgy and complex and since J.D Salinger wrote a book that was supposed to be complex I thought it would be cool to read.
The reason why I like this quote so much was because it was one thing I could relate to and its something I still do today. To make life easier it’s a habit to say nice things even if you don’t mean it. An example is how I ask my boss how was his weekend, I don’t really care about my boss or how his weekend was, but I ask because its the nice thing to do.
