I’m participating in Top Ten Tuesday again, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish… This week is a freebie to pick your own topic. I missed this topic last month, and I love this topic, so stick around and see what my top ten favorite books quotes are today! Then, head over to The Broke and the Bookish to see what topics other readers choose this week.
“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”
Seems fitting, what with the movie trailer just being premiered this weekend at the MTV Movie Awards, that I would chose this quote from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. There is something so genuine and accurate about this quote that absolutely captured me. If you haven’t read this book, you should.
“For children love is a feeling; for adults, it is a decision. Children wait to learn if their love is true by seeing how long it lasts; adults make their love true by never wavering from their commitment.”
Although I only gave Pathfinder 3 stars on goodreads, this quote really resonated with me. The topic of love is always a difficult concept to explain, but this almost sums it up.
“Daughterhood creates as much of an action verb, as much of a sense of place in the world, as being a mother does.”
Mothers and Other Liars was an incredibly touching book about a perception of motherhood I’d never thought of before. It was beautiful and heartbreaking. I am very close with my mom, so when i read this i texted it to my mom. Love it!
“I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”
Everything is Illuminated was not my favorite book, but I can appreciate a well written novel. I feel like this quote is the story of my life, and acknowledging this was a huge step for me! It was like actually becoming aware of just how much control I have over my own thought process, if I can just exercise it.
In time we hate that which we often fear.
Shakespeare was a man of many wise words. Self explanatory.
The price of a memory is the memory of the sorrow it brings
Rather profound words from I am Number Four.
With a secret like that, at some point the secret itself becomes irrelevant. The fact that you kept it does not.
Water for Elephants
If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.
Love, after all, always said more about those who felt it than it did about the ones they loved.
The Best of Me
But a lot of times, people die how they live. And so last words tell me a lot about who people were, and why they became the sort of people biographies get written about.
Looking for Alaska
“You love me. Real or not real?”
I tell him, “Real.”
