Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes (version 2.0)

March 5, 2018 Top Ten Tuesday 31

So we first did this topic on The Broke and the Bookish back in 2013. Check out my favorite quotes back then! I still love all of those quotes, but today I get to share 10 more that I love! I’m excited to see yours!

1. “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

2. “…she made her home in between the pages of books.”
― Maggie Stiefvater, Linger

3. “If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: in love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.”
― Kristin Hannah, The Nightingale

4. “There are good days and hard days for me—even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”
― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

5. “I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.”
― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

6. “If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.”
― Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

7. “Even in that time of utter darkness, somewhere deep inside me the memory of love and goodness had stayed alive.”
― Juliet Marillier, Heart’s Blood

8. “As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot now imagine a life without her.”
― Kristin Hannah, Summer Island

9. “Stories are lights. Light is precious in a world so dark.”
– Kate DiCamillo, The Tale of Despereaux

10. “When the paintings come out for you, it’s what people have meant all along when they talk about artists being immortal. In a way, their work can live forever. When the art comes alive it’s like the immortal version of the painting, like a little bit of the person painted has gotten to live forever.”
– Daisy Whitney, Starry Nights

    I used a Coraline quote, too! Love your Kate DiCamillo quote, she is one of my favorite childhood authors

  2. Sammie

    I haven’t read many of these, but the quotes are so lovely! The Nail Gaiman quote is one of my favorites, too. He’s very quotable.

  3. Kristen

    I love so many of these quotes (even though I have only read The Nightingale and Rebecca). The Book Thief is on my “To Read” list, and the quote you shared makes me even more excited to get to it!
