Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime!
It took me a while to complete this book, it’s not boring at all, It’s just my relationship with Trevor as a hot and cold fan, you don’t always get him, but when you do, it’s really worth your while.
However this book was worth the read, I laughed, and laughed and laughed and cried too and it was many shades of educating. and below are a few quotes I really loved and I believe you also can take a lesson from, whether you have read the book before or not. Perhaps, these could spur you on to read the whole book.
“I believed that Fufi was my dog, but of course that wasn’t true. Fufi was a dog. I was a boy. We got along well. She happened to live in my house. That experience shaped what I’ve felt about relationships for the rest of my life: You do not own the thing that you love.”
“I walked out of his house that day an inch taller. Seeing him had reaffirmed his choosing of me. He chose to have me in his life. He chose to answer my letter. I was wanted. Being chosen is the greatest gift you can give to another human being.”
“Relationships are built in the silences. You spend time with people, you observe them and interact with them, and you come to know them-and that is what apartheid stole from us: time.”
“Trevor, you’re okay,” she said. “Go and wash up. You’re not hurt. You’re hurt emotionally. But you’re not hurt.”
“Trevor, don’t forget: You’re having sex with a woman in her mind before you’re having sex with her in her vagina.”
“Trevor, foreplay begins during the day. It doesn’t begin in the bedroom.”
“It was like when he was creating his character he traded in all his intelligence points for Beauty points. I stood no chance.”
“We spend so much time being afraid of failure, afraid of rejection. But regret is the thing we should fear most. Failure is an answer. Rejection is an answer. Regret is an eternal question you will never have the answer to.”
“If you add up how much you read in a year on the Internet–tweets, Facebook posts, lists – you’ve read the equivalent of a shit ton of books, but in fact you’ve read no books in a year.”
“The world doesn’t love you”
“Love is a creative act. When you love someone, you create a new world for them”
“Trevor, I prayed. I told you I prayed. I don’t pray for nothing.”
