Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30

Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

I really like this prompt, this was hard to chose since I probably have over 3 notebooks filled with quotes that not just inspire me but I also just like the way a sentence was written.  These were the quotes that I noticed I've copied on paper more than once so I think they are the ones that speak to me the most:

"Life isn't fair, so you have to play the best game with the cards you're dealt."
-Mary Acosta, Dark Companion

"When the right moment appears, the key is to not let it pass."
-Jay Asher, The Future of Us

"Stories never end... Even if the books like to pretend they did"
-Cornelia Funke, Ink Blood

You are so brave and quiet I forget you are suffering.
                                       — Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms

"Even in the midst of heartbreak you could still find yourself laughing."
-Cassandra Clare, What Really Happened in Peru

"The right thing and the easy thing are never the same"
-Kami García and Margaret Stohl. Beautiful Creautures

"You'll learn far more by listening than you ever will by speaking"
-David Estes, The Moon Dwellers

"The Less you say, the more weight your words will carry"
Leigh Bardugo, Siege and Storm

"It matter not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."
-J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

"I knew nothing but love and devotion when I was growing up. Trust me, it makes everything easier."
Julia Quinn, The Duke and I

There are just so many wonderful quotes in Harry Potter, aren't there? The one you chose is one of my favourites, too. :) I love that you included a quote from the Inkworld trilogy, too! Such a great series.

Yeah, I sometimes feel that I need to repeat the first quote too much. Thanks for stopping by:)

I think the even though Harry Potter id "for kids" you can still find many ways to be inspired by the series.

I really love the Leigh Bardugo quote - it's basically my motto as an introvert! I'm much better at listening than speaking, anyway... (I love how optimistic the Cassandra Clare quote is too!)

She is proof that even romance novels (bodice rippers) can have good writing.

The Cassandra Clare quote really helped get over a pretty bad relationship.

Ink Blood is one of my favorite series and the author understands perfectly how stories feel to me. Thanks for stopping by.
