Quotes "Simply stated, although it's not really simple at all, my job is to transmit to you all the memories I have within me. Memories of the past." Ch 10 “He had never known other books existed.” Ch 10 " Now he became aware of an entirely new sensation: pinpricks? No, because they were soft and without pain…He put out his tongue again, and caught one of the dots of cold upon it. It disappeared from his awareness instantly; but he caught another, and another. The sensation made him smile." - Lois Lowry, The Giver, Ch. 11 "He was free to enjoy the breathless glee that overwhelmed him: the speed, the clear cold air, the total silence, the feeling of balance and excitement and peace." - Lois Lowry, The Giver, Ch. 11 "Our people made that choice, the choice to go to Sameness. Before my time, before the previous time, back and back and back. We relinquished color when we relinquished sunshine and did away with difference. We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others." - Lois Lowry, The Giver, Ch. 12 “Because it’s a memory from a time when colour was.” CH 12 Or – even better find your own original example!
