Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic by thatartsyreadergirl is inspirational quotes. I love quotes, so this was a really fun topic for me.
“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.” – Tyrion Lannister, A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
“Life wasn’t about becoming, was it? It was about being.” – Ursula Todd, Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
“Laughter is poison to fear.” – Catelyn Stark, A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
“But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” – Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J K Rowling
“Old stories are like old friends, you have to visit them from time to time.” – Old Nan, A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin
“But people themselves alter so much, that there is something new to be observed in them for ever.” – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
“A story was a form of telepathy. By means of inking symbols onto a page, she was able to send thoughts and feelings from her mind to her reader’s. It was a magical process, so commonplace that no one stopped to wonder at it.” – Briony Tallis, Atonement by Ian McEwan
“It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” – Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone by J K Rowling
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives only one.” – Jojen Reed, A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin
“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 its words and stories so damning and brilliant.” – Death, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
