One of my favorites are:
"You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be. Imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present"

“There are so many worse things than death. Not to be loved or not to be able to love: that is worse.” Tessa Gray, TID

“One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” Tessa Gray, TID

“I wouldn't change it," Simon said. "I wouldn't give up loving you. Not for anything. You know what Raphael told me? That I didn't know how to be a good vampire, that vampires accept that they're dead. But as long as I remember what it was like to love you, I'll always feel like I'm alive.”
Simon Lewis, TMI

“All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.” Juliette Ferrars, Shatter me

This isn't a book quote but I love it!

"If your going through hell keep going"-Winston Churchill


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

one of my favorite quotes is definently:

"Why are you limping like that?" Nicholas demanded
I'm swaggering,' I informed him
You look like you're wearing a diaper.'
Charming, and I had a crush on this guy.
Wait. I had a crush on this guy?
Now what?' he asked "you're making weird faces"
Nothing! I said quickly 'nevermind'

Wow, I have a LOT of book favorites, so here are a few of my favorites. I skipped a bunch that were more spoiler-y or that weren't from books I'd read :)

“Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are.” ~I Am the Messenger

“The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.” ~1984

“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.” ~The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

“Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches.” ~The Princess Bride

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” ~Harry Potter #2

“Books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life.” ~Eragon

“You must forge your own path for it to mean anything.” ~The Lost Hero

“Of all creatures that breathe and move upon the earth, nothing is bred that is weaker than man.” ~The Odyssey

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.” ~Dance of Dragons

"Wasn't that what religions did? Squint at one another and declare, 'My unprovable belief is better than your unprovable belief. Suck it.'” ~Dreams of Gods and Monsters

I'll let you go if you stay

In this moment i swear we are infinite

We accept the love we think we deserve

We find light even in the darkest times


message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

“Tucking my nose into a book makes me completely oblivious to my surroundings. I would have made a terrible spy in the army--the first person to hand me a novel would have been able to shoot my head clean off without me noticing.”
― Alyxandra Harvey, Haunting Violet
