Top Ten Inspiring Quotes From Books

"I am haunted by humans." - Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

"That's how we manage to survive the loss. Because love, it never dies, it never goes away, it never fades, so long as you hang on to it. Love can make you immortal." - Gayle Forman, If I Stay

"We do not start as dust. We do not end as dust. We make more than dust.
That's all we ask of you. Make more than dust." - David Levithan, Two Boys Kissing

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

"My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations." - John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

"But in the end it's only a passing thing, this shadow; even darkness must pass." - JRR Tolkien, The Two Towers

"Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic." - Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone

"One day, the boy had to move away. He couldn't bring the girl with him, so he brought the stars. When he'd look out his window at night, he would start with one. One star. And the boy would make a wish on it, and the wish would be her name." - Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

"Always." - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

So beautiful. I wish I had a way with words like some of these authors. "Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic." - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. A sneaky extra!

    1. That it is. I loved Two Boys Kissing, I hope you do too. There was actually another quote I remembered loving but I just could not find it again. I wish I'd marked it or written it down. Thanks for stopping by, Rosy.
