"Doubt thou that the stars are fire;
Doubt thou that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt that I love". (201) This quote is important to me because it reminds that having doubt in someone or something can make matters worst and that you should trust people more. I think this is true for the book because it so many parts I feel like the family just needs to communicate with each other. I really like how they have quotes from other books in this book when it is a new day. I think it is a great idea how on the new day they have these kind of quotes that make you think.
I think the theme of this book is to always believe in yourself and you will be suprised of who you can become or what you can do.
