Please Respond to “A Brownstone in Brooklyn” Quote”


Brownstone I was asked to choose a quote from, A Brownstone in Brooklyn, to reflect on the unpredictable nature of life. How things are never the same and human beings have to adjust to life’s changing events. A Brownstone in Brooklyn is about growing up in the turbulent sixties, one of the most event filled decades in Black-American history.
A Brownstone in Brooklyn chronicles the life-altering events that shape the future of Andy Michael Pilgrim, a young man growing up in the turbulent sixties. This is a quote from Sister Love, a character sitting on the B-52 bus riding to her job at the A&S Department Store in downtown Brooklyn. She’s watching some young kids playing in the the water squirting from a fire hydrant.
What do you think? What is your reaction to this quote?
“The most special times in a person’s life are not meant to last forever. They’re like bubbles from a plastic ring dipped into a soapy solution. The soap bubbles rise, with the sun flashing brilliant colors, then bursts into a showery memory mist.” —Julius Thompson, A Brownstone in Brooklyn Please leave a response or email your response: http://www.juliusthompsonnovels.com
