Hi everyone,

I was looking for a thread like this and I couldn't seem to find one so I thought I would start one. Everyone post your favorite book quotes or poem lines or anything like that.

I look forward to reading them all : )

 

some of my favorites:

 

“Someone who thinks death is the scariest thing doesn't know a thing about life.” 

― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

 

“What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.” 

― Scott Westerfeld, Uglies

 

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” 

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

"You see Jack Nicholson in Easy Rider talking about rednecks? About how if they see something different they don't go running scared, they get dangerous. Aberdeen's like that. But they were so bone-headed, why shouldn't we be different from them?"

“I learned that there is good in this world, if you look hard enough for it. I learned that not everyone is disappointing, including me, and that a 1,257-foot bump in the ground can feel higher than a bell tower if you’re standing next to the right person.” 

― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places

​I couldn't recommend a book more than this one, the movie is on Netflix and its also really good

I don't know if I'm allowed to post multiple quotes, but I like a lot of them! Sorry if this was too long.

 

"Forgive me, for all the things I did but mostly for the ones that I did not."

   - Donna Tartt, The Secret History (Book)

 

"That was yesterday. Today we pass on, we see it no more, and we are different, changed in some infinitesimal way. We can never be quite the same again."

   - Daphne duMaurier, Rebecca (Book)

 

"We have not touched the stars, nor are we forgiven, which brings us back to the hero's shoulders and the gentleness that comes, not from the absence of violence, but despite the abundance of it."

   - Richard Siken, Snow and Dirty Rain (Poem)

I've got many. 

 

“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.” - Eartha Kitt

 

“I fall in love with myself, and I want someone to share it with me. And I want someone to share me, with me.” - Eartha Kitt

 

“Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.” - bell hooks

 

“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” - Paulo Coelho

 

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.” - Sylvia Plath

 

"You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves." - Mary Oliver
