If you haven’t read this precious book (about a lonely aliebn) yet, you need to drop everything and read it now. Seriously, though. Just read our favourites quotes and you’ll agree…
@jonnysun is an internet sensation, and now he’s also a beloved author. everyone’s a aliebn when ur a aliebn too is the illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, only to meet all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, all while learning to feel a little better about being an alien.
Here are *just a few* of our favourite quotes from Jonny Sun:
“I love art. To experience somebody’s art is to be invited into a silent conversation they are having with themself.”
“If a tree falls in love with a forest but it doesn’t make a sound, will the forest even hear it?”
“A friend is anyone or anything who shares a life with you that you would never be able to experience without them.”
“I’m like a onion. Peel back the layers and you’ll see that deep down inside, I’m just a smaller, more afraid onion”
“Art allows us to remember things we have never done and go to places we have never been.”
“When two aliebns find each other in a strange place, it feels a little more like home”
“If you’re always happy are you ever truly happy, or is happiness only something we see in you because we know sadness?”
“Can I ever be truly happy if i am alone in my happiness?”
“I’ve been wondering why the lonely ones make the most beautiful music and I think it’s because they’re the ones most invested in filling the silence”
“I guess it’s impossible to understand the meaning of home until a place you called home loses its meaning.”
