Top 10 Tuesday: Rewind!

Is it seriously Tuesday already?! When did that happen! As it turns out, I'm totally unprepared for this weeks Top 10 Tuesday with the Broke and Bookish...but alas, we shall move forward as usual! I'm mostly excited because I get to choose the topic this week....

What to choose....what to choose....Oh! I know! I'll go with......
....Top 10 Favorite Book Quotes!
Because, as it happens, I'm a total freak about quotes.
Seriously. I've been collecting them since I was 12.

"A flame may love a snowflake but they can never be together without each harming the other."
-Chris Colfer, The Wishing Spell


"The minute I knew I was in love was the minute when there was no question about it."

-Roald Dahl, The Twits

"Love and faith go hand in hand. You can't have one without the other. And as we all know, taking the leap ain't always safe. Sometimes you judge poorly, and you land right on your face. But unless you make the jump, you'll never know what's on the other side. You just gotta find the guts to do it."
-Kirsten Miller, The Eternal Ones

-Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

"Tink was not all bad: or rather, she was all bad just now, but on the other hand, sometimes she was all good. Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time. They are, however, allowed to change, only it must be a complete change."
-J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


"A person with no forgiveness in their heart for things they've done is doing nobody any favors. It's a punishment worse than death, worse than hell."
-Jamie Ayres, 18 Things

"She did not yet know that Tink hated her with the fierce hatred of a very woman."
-J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Well, there ya have it, folks! Just a few of my favorite bookish quotes! What are on your favorites? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I almost chose a quote from Wuthering Heights (<3) but decided to do all YA. There are so many great ones in that book.

  2. I really liked the Dr. Seuss quote! And the one from the Twits. Those were such great books.

    I haven't been collecting quotes religiously, but I have liked a few on goodreads. Here's one from Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend

    "“You have to be the bravest person in the world to go out every day, being yourself when no one likes who you are.”

    And then there are all of John Green's books that are super quotable, and also Rainbow Rowell's. I have to restrain myself from highlighting the whole book on my kindle. hahaha

  3. I love that Shakespeare quote. It's one of my favorites, and one of my favorite plays. Thank you for stopping by earlier! :)

  4. Awesome topic! :) My favorites on your list are definitely #7 and #8, I remember hearing both of those quotes when I was little and they've stuck with me ever since. :)
