Top Ten Favorite Quotes From Books
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish which I adore and therefore chose to adopt into my weekly blog posts!
This one was actually pretty hard for me because I LOVE quotes and literary quotes are my favorite. I decided to not include any Shakespeare or Chaucer because they would take up my entire list and tried to keep it to one or two from a favorite author/book. So, here are my top ten favorite quotes that popped into my head…
“I’m tired of being strong.” She laughed at me, laughed as if I was ridiculous. “You are what you are,” She said. – Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest
“Sometimes you deal with the devil not because you want to, but because if you don't, someone else will.” – Laurell K. Hamilton, Cerulean Sins
“Celia, wait,” Marco says, standing but not moving closer to her. “You are breaking my heart. You told me once that I reminded you of your father. That you never wanted to suffer the way your mother did for him, but you are doing exactly that to me. You keep leaving me. You leave me longing for you again and again when I would give anything for you to stay, and it is killing me.”
“It has to kill one of us,” Celia says quietly.” – Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

"How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams.” – Bram Stoker, Dracula
“Your soul sings to mine. My soul is yours, and it always will be, in any world. No matter what happens. I need you to remember that I love you.” - Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone
“How could you not know?" His voice was full of wonderment. "You changed me utterly. You were like a...like a bright, wonderful bloom in a garden full of weeds. Like a graceful capital on a page of plain script, a letter decorated with the deepest, finest colors in all Erin. Like a flame, Caitrin. Like a song.” –Juliet Marillier, Hearts Blood
