Hey Everyone! I don’t know who suggested this Top Ten Tuesday but it is absolutely PERFECT! Thanks to The Artsy Reader Girl for choosing it!
I have so many of my favorite bookish quotes. I’m going to try and choose 10 quotes from totally different books,/genres and yes, they are in order.
“For where All Love is, the speaking is unnecessary. It is all. It is undying and it is enough.”
“We always think there’s enough time to do things with other people. Time to say things to them. And then something happens and then we stand there holding on to words like ‘if’.”
“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
“All my life,” she said, “I have been told ‘go’ and ‘come.’ I am told how I will live, and I am told how I must die. I must be a man’s servant and a mare for his pleasure, or I must hide myself behind walls and surrender my flesh to a cold, silent god. I would walk into the jaws of hell itself, if it were a path of my own choosing. I would rather die tomorrow in the forest than live a hundred years of the life appointed me.”
“The greatest thing is to have someone who loves you and—and to love in return.”
“Libraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”
“In love we find out who we want to be, in war we find out who we are.”
“Don’t let the hard days win”
“There are a lot of children in Afghanistan, but little childhood.”
