TOP TEN FAVORITE BOOK QUOTES
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme that was created by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week there will be a new topic and a linky, for you to share your lists with everyone one else.
This week's topic is "top ten favorite book quotes."
Once in a while, you read something and it has this way of sticking with you. It can be something that leaves you breathless and aching for more or it can be something as simple and beautifully understated in a rich and subtle way, but it still sticks and it gets you to thinking about things. These are just a few of my favorites.
“Sometimes...the hardest part about letting someone go is realizing that you were never meant to have them.” || Rebecca Serle
“I guess that’s just part of loving people: You have to give things up. Sometimes you even have to give them up.”
“Love: It will kill you and save you, both.” || Lauren Oliver
“It's not the face, but the expressions on it. It's not the voice, but what you say. It's not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.” || Stephenie Meyer
“We are what we are, neither as good or as bad as others paint us. And what we are doesn't change how truly we feel, only how free we are to follow those feelings.” || Melissa Marr
“You haunt me. You alone. You're my fire. I'm your air."
“The warmth of his mouth bloomed across my hand, and his nails skimmed across the inside of my wrist. Such great sensation from so little a touch...” || Saundra Mitchell
“Do you know what makes someone beautiful? Confidence. You don't have to have this shape eyes or that shape lips. No one seems to be able to decide which shape is best anyway. You can have every kind of blemish. It's confidence that attracts people. That's what everybody's looking for. It's what no potion can really give you.” || Daniel&Dina Nayeri
"And now I’m looking at you, and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me." || Cassandra Clare
"I loved you! I loved you and you destroyed me. You took my heart and ripped it up. You might as well have staked me!" The Change in his features also caught me by surprise. His voice filled the room. So much grief, so much anger. So unlike the usual Adrian. He strode toward me, hand clasped over his chest. "I.Loved.You. And you used me the whole time." || Richelle Mead
"Would you like to hear my story, Bella? It doesn't have a happy ending – but which of ours does? If we had happy endings, we'd all be under gravestones now." || Stephenie Meyer
He gave such a sad look that I reached up and touched his cheek and his ear and the silk of his hair, just to make sure the strands weren't spun from gold. "I can't have you, can I?" he wispered.
I frowned. "Cadan..."
"If you say my name every day until I die," he said with a gentle laugh, "then even the worst ending for me will be a joyful one." || Courntey Allison Moulton
