Top Ten Book Quotes

This week's the Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday topic is your favorite book quotes. Here's mine (by the way I left out who is saying the quote to remain spoiler-free):

"You love me, real or not real?" I tell him, "Real." Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins

"It is very often nothing but our own vanity that deceives us." Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

"That's the flip side of freedom; When you're completely free, you're also completely on your own.” Pandemonium, Lauren Oliver

"It's funny. All you have to do is say something nobody understands and they'll do practically anything you want them to." Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger

"When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end." Twilight, Stephenie Meyer

“I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.” Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett

“You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.” The Road, Cormac McCarthy

“Maybe the truth is, there's a little bit of loser in all of us. Being happy isn't having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it's about stringing together all the little things.”Ann Brashares, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You'll Go!


  1. Great list. There were some really brilliant quotes in it.

  2. I can never love that Mockingjay quote enough. I have a small version of Oh, the Places You'll Go! and often keep it in my bag to read when I'm out and about.
