Because of Winn-Dixie - Kate DiCamillo

I'm trying to read some of the many Scholastic books ordered during my sons' elementary years.  So far they've all be winners.  This one is no exception.  Here are two quotes I liked

that have much meaning in this story:

 

“There ain't no way you can hold onto something that wants to go, you understand? You can only love what you got while you got it.”

 

“You can't always judge people by the things they done. You got to judge them by what they are doing now.”
