Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Today’s topic is “Ten Favorite Book Quotes.” I love quotes. I could just do a whole post of Harry Potter quotes, but I’m going to share the love. After I read a book, I choose one quote on Goodreads that defined the book for me. Here are some of my favorites:

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.”
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling

“I don’t believe in arachnophobia (irrational fear of spiders) because fear of spiders is perfectly rational so I refuse to recognize it as a ‘disorder.'”
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson

“Sometimes we expect more than people are capable of giving at the moment.”
On the Fence by Kasie West

“I believe we decided our own fate. No one has the right to dictate who we are or what we become.”
Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie

“Faith is a very personal thing, really. Just because you don’t meet with a group of people once a week who believe everything exactly the way you do doesn’t mean you don’t believe in something.”
The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg

“It is so shocking to find out how many people do not believe they can learn, and how many more believe learning to be difficult.”
Dune by Frank Herbert

“For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It’s a person. And we are finally home.”
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

“Sometimes love isn’t something you say, it’s something you do.”
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

“I love you more than I hate everything else.”
Landline by Rainbow Rowell

      Goodreads helps a lot for quotes. Sometimes I come across one while I’m reading, but mostly I just find one after the fact on Goodreads. And, yeah, the arachnophobia one is the best! 😀
