CAIRO – 18 November 2017: “The problem with people is they forget that most of the time it's the small things that count.” ― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places.
As she states in her Goodreads bio, Jennifer Niven started writing at a very young age, completing two biographies from her perspective as a child, a big number of songs, stories and illustrated books which she drew herself, all that by the time she was 10 years old. Niven is currently New York Time’s bestselling author of All the Bright Places.
In this quote, Niven is trying to state that people usually disregard the simple joys of life and the random acts of kindness and grace, not knowing that after all, these are the things which matter the most.
● All the Bright Places has already been set to be a big production motion picture directed by Miguel Arteta and starring Elle Fanning in the role of Violet Markey.
●Niven has started writing professionally back in 2000 and has written 9 books so far most celebrated, of which are All the Bright Places and Holding up the Universe.
Another quote for the road:
“I know life well enough to know you can’t count on things staying around or standing still, no matter how much you want them to. You can’t stop people from dying. You can’t stop them from going away. You can’t stop yourself from going away either. I know myself well enough to know that no one else can keep you awake or keep you from sleeping.”
