Top Ten Tuesdays #4

Rewind week! - This is where you get to pick from all of the old Top Ten Tuesdays and I couldn't decide so I'm doing two, because...that's just how I roll. (Yeah, I went there.)

Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes -
  1. “Take down the walls. That is, after all, the whole point. You do not know what will happen if you take down the walls; you cannot see through to the other side, don't know whether it will bring freedom or ruin, resolution or chaos. It might be paradise or destruction. Take down the walls. Otherwise you must live closely, in fear, building barricades against the unknown, saying prayers against the darkness, speaking verse of terror and tightness. Otherwise you may never know hell; but you will not find heaven, either. You will not know fresh air and flying. All of you, wherever you are: in your spiny cities, or your one bump towns. Find it, the hard stuff, the links of metal and chink, the fragments of stone filling you stomach. And pull, and pull, and pull. I will make a pact with you: I will do it if you will do it, always and forever. Take down the walls." Requiem by Lauren Oliver
  2. "Each Day Means A New twenty-four hours. Each day means everything's possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, You take it all one day at a time. You try to walk in the Light." -Legend by Marie Lu
  3. "If you muster that courage to stand under fire and not go down, you will amass an inner strength that no one can touch. You won’t be another faceless, nameless, forgotten human in a long historical line of the defeated. You will be a steeled warrior, and a force to be forever reckoned with. And beneath the pain that lingers, you will have the comfort of knowing that you are strongest of all. That when others caved and broke, you kept fighting even against hopeless odds.” -Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon
  4. "I've been thinking about what we said about heaven, and I think heaven would be a place where you could still somehow remember things that happened when you were alive. I wish I knew for sure, but I can't really imagine a place where I'd exist without remembering us." - Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor
  5. “We’re here, and then we’re gone, and it’s not about the time we’re here, but what we do with the time.” The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
  6. "Sometimes love means not being able to bear seeing the one you love the way they are, when they're not what you hoped for." Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
  7. “Happily ever after, or even just together ever after, is not cheesy,” Wren said. “It’s the noblest, like, the most courageous thing two people can shoot for.” - Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
  8. “I wanted to tell them that I'd never had a friend, not ever, not a real one. Until Dante. I wanted to tell them that I never knew that people like Dante existed in the world, people who looked at the stars, and knew the mysteries of water, and knew enough to know that birds belonged to the heavens and weren't meant to be shot down from their graceful flights by mean and stupid boys. I wanted to tell them that he had changed my life and that I would never be the same, not ever. And that somehow it felt like it was Dante who had saved my life and not the other way around. I wanted to tell them that he was the first human being aside from my mother who had ever made me want to talk about the things that scared me. I wanted to tell them so many things and yet I didn't have the words. So I just stupidly repeated myself. "Dante's my friend." - Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe
  9. "I admire a person who devotes his life to justice, who can live off the land, and who still looks hot after sleeping in the forest. That's real talent." - Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
  10. “You have to fall in love to be in love, but falling in love isn't the same as being in love”  - Just One Day by Gayle Forman

                1. Fangirl has been on my TBR list forever. Great lists.

                  1. Thanks! With Fangirl it's like everyone who hasn't read it wants to, and it's so worth the read!

                2. Great pick. So many great quotes and books. I would especially love to read Deathly Hallows for the first time again, it was so hard to read that knowing it was the last in the series. Nice list :) My TTT.

                  1. I know, it's always hard to read the last in a favorite series but in a way I think that's what makes it so good!
