Quote of the Week #20: Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

Quote of the week is a weekly bookish post.
Each Friday, I will pick one of my favorite quotes from a book I have read or  am currently reading to share with you, my wonderful readers!!

Quote of the Week:

Lock and Key

So, this week I am taking  quote from Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen. Sarah is  one of my favorite authors. 

The quote I chose is very meaningful in its own way. Any journey, no matter what, never really means anything until you get to the end. Then you see just where you are, and how you got there. It can be pretty amazing. 


“The further you go, the more you have to be proud of. At the same time, in order to come a long way, you have to be behind to begin with. In the end, though maybe it's not how you reach a place that matters. Just that you get there at all.”


  1. I love Lock and Key! It had so many amazing quotes in it, and I found that a lot of them were really easy to relate to, like this one.

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOOOOVVVEE Sarah Dessen! I have read all of her books and every chance I get I fill up my bookshelf with the her books, so I can collect them! Yeah, I'm in love with her! Lock and Key was amazing! What I love most about her books, not just this one, is how much she gets young people. I would know cause I'm only 17. She really changes you with her words and makes you see the world in a different way. I am inspired by her work and I just....have no words! She is just amazing!
