Top Ten Tuesday (87)



Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Broke and the Bookish!

My Top Ten Favorite Quotes from Books
This week’s post was SUCH a fun one to put together! And inspiring! Whenever I’m reading a book, I like to write down my favorite quotes and hang them on my desk. These are a few of my favorites, that I found inspiring, funny, or motivational!
 

1.     “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” –Sirius Black (Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling)

2.     “Weapons, when they break and are mended, can be stronger at the mended places,” said Jace. “Perhaps hearts are the same.” –Jace (City of Heavenely Fire by Cassandra Clare)

3.     “Libraries were full of ideas-perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.” (Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas)

4.     "The worth is in the act. Your worth halts when you surrender the will to change and experience life. But options are before you; choose one and dedicated yourself to it. The deeds will give you new hope and purpose." –Saphira (Inheritance Series by Christopher Paolini)

5.     “These books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life.” –Jeod (Inheritance Series by Christopher Paolini)

6.     “Books have to be heavy because the whole world’s inside them.” (Inkheart by Cornelia Funke)

7.     “Books loved anyone who opened them, they gave you security and friendship and didn't ask for anything in return; they never went away, never, not even when you treated them badly. ” (Inkheart by Cornelia Funke)

8.     “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” (Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll)

9.     “Love is scary: it changes; it can go away. That’s part of the risk.” (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han)

10.  “I like the night. Without the dark, we’d never see the stars.” (Twilight by Stephanie Meyer)

    1. thank you! Sirius is my favorite! OMG i'm surprised! i think you're honestly one of the first people I've heard say they don't care for her writing! i can't be a good judge of her stuff though, because I've only read To All the Boys I'ved Loved Before and nothing else. thanks for checking out my post Danielle!
