Top Ten Tuesday – Favourite Book Quotes

Hello, everyone! This is my first non-book review post in a while and also my first time linking up with Top Ten Tuesday (which has now moved to The Artsy Reader Girl). When I saw the prompt I knew I really wanted to do it, and also that it wouldn’t be only ten, but I’ll try my best not to include 500 quotes or something like that. Obviously this list is definitely not in order because if I had to sit and choose the order we’d be here until Western Cape’s dams are full again. And also just know that some of these quotes come from books I haven’t actually read, but know and love the quote.

  1. “And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good” – East of Eden, John Steinbeck
  2. “So this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad I’m still trying to figure out how that could be” – The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky
  3. “Books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life” – Eragon, Christopher Paolini
  4. “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye” – The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint Exupery
  5. “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite” – The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky
  6. “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us” – The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien
  7. “There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for” – The Two Towers, J.R.R. Tolkien
  8. “I spent my life folded between the pages of books” – Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi
  9. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go” – I Can Read With My Eyes Shut – Dr. Seuss
  10. “Don’t let the Muggles get you down” – The Prisoner of Azkaban, J.K. Rowling
  11. “Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it’s unbelievable” – Matilda, Roald Dahl
  12. “To really be a nerd, she’d decided, you had to prefer fictional world to the real ones” – Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell
  13. “I am what I am, an’ I’m not ashamed. ‘Never be ashamed,’ my ol’ dad used ter say, ‘There’s some who’ll hold it against you, but they’re not worth bothering with.’” – Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling
  14. “Not all those who wander are lost” – Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien
  15. “If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself.” – The Lightning Thief
  16. “I’m just as sane as you” – The Order of the Phoenix, J.K. Rowling
