Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week is the Top Ten Book Quotes (these could be quotes from books you love, or bookish quotes in general). I think I’m going to do Great quotes from books I’ve recently read. I’ve started quoting while annotating and for reviews.
“People with secrets shouldn’t make enemies. People with destinies shouldn’t make plans.”
“This story is about a lot of things, but mostly about idiots. So it needs saying from the outset that it’s always very easy to declare that other people are idiots, but only if you forget how idiotically difficult being human is.”
I think this sums up the book pretty good! lol
“I am one of billions. I am stardust gathered fleetingly into form. I will be ungathered. The stardust will go on to be other things someday and I will be free.”
“Wholeness, she had learned, was not the absence of pain but the ability to hold it.”
““First, a story ends when it ends, and not a moment before. If you are unhappy with this ending, make a new one.”
Kitay shook his head. “No, that’s what you get when you’ve killed all the brave men and let the cowards decide.”
“The right belief is like a good cloak, I think. If it fits you well, it keeps you warm and safe. The wrong fit however, can suffocate.”
“There are so many firsts to raising kids, and parents are told to catch them all. But they don’t warn you about the lasts. The last baby onesie. The last time you tie their shoes. The last time they think you have every answer in the world.”
“I’m afraid I don’t have magic.”
“You do, Mr. Baker. Arthur told me that there can be magic in the ordinary.”
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
I had to add this because it’s one of my all time favorites!!
