Kelley Anne | 1619 comments I just thought that it might be fun to see what some of people's fav quotes were from books. PLEASE make sure that you say what book it came from, that way if others haven't read it and want to, they can!

Here are a couple of mine:

"Some books should be tasted some devoured,
but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly."

--Inkheart by Cornelia Funk


I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn’t already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race. That rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and it’s words and stories so damning and brilliant. None of those things however came out of my mouth. All I was able to do was turn to Liesel Meminger and tell her the only truth I truly know. I said it to the Book Thief and I say it now to you. A last note from your narrator….I am Haunted by Humans.

--Closing paragraph of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Jess | 3721 comments A quote from my favorite book of all time:

"Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of feeling ultimate bliss." - The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Another favorite of mine:

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do." - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Kelley Anne | 1619 comments I was reading Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong tonight and there were just a couple of quotes from the book that I thought were great! I had to add them. *Note* If you haven't read any or her books and don't understand Clay and his background, the first quote probably wont make any sense. But if you do, I hope that you'll chuckle like I did.

(This is a young Clayton talking about Jeremy)
"To pass the time, he also coached me on other things that I deemed a complete waste of brain space -- usless skills like table manners and rules of public behavior. Stand up straight. Speak clearly. Don't eat with your hands. Don't growl at people. Don't piss on the furniture. And above all else, don't sniff anything."


"Kids who don't eavesdrop on adult conversations are doomed to a childhood of ignorance."

Augh... I love Clay! Annoyingly the release for the book seems to be delayed over here in the UK for another few weeks.
