"He'd have been glad to witness her kissing his dusty, bomb hit lips" (512)
This quote originates from an extremely sad part of the novel in which Rudy is killed and Liesel kisses him although he had died. All throughout of the book Rudy would beg for kisses, trying to win them and such but to no avail. Rudy and Liesel had grown to love each other after all they had been through together. Even after Rudy dies, she continues to love him and exhibits one last display of affection for the boy. It's a sweet moment with a lot of meaning and character. Huge piece of the theme I chose, just going to show that death can not stop unconditional love.
A real life example of this is in this story, of a dog who loved his owner so much, he stayed by his owner's grave for 6 years even after his death.
This is an example of the theme chosen as well because even after the death of the owner, the dog still found it necessary to show signs of love for the man who had died. A very good dog and knows how to love as well. if fits quite perfectly with this chosen theme and is a great story.
