Oh, you're so quotable {Top Ten Tuesday}


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, where we get to reveal our top ten of whatever they chose as the weekly topic! Click here for a list of future topics.

This week we're looking at quotes that made us want to dog-ear pages / put sticky notes everywhere / get a poster made with those words of wisdom. EITHER OR.

Fun fact: I actually had a Sarah Dessen quote put on the back of my iPod a few years ago. Fun fact 2: that quote isn't actually on this list. Fun fact 3: A lot of these quotes aren't from my favourite books, some aren't even from books I liked. But certain things stay with you, regardless of where they came from.

"Libraries were full of ideas – perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons."

"That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfast cereals based on colour instead of taste."
–John Green


 
"Sometimes I think that maybe we are just stories. Like we may as well just be words on a page, because we're only what we've done and what we are going to do."
– Jodi Lynn Anderson


 
"There are moments that you'll remember for the rest of your life and there are moments that you think you'll remember for the rest of your life, and it's not often they turn out to be the same moment."
– Maggie Stiefvater


 
"Humanity, that quality of benevolence that humans have, without irony, named after themselves."
– Laini Taylor


 
"Reality's what other people dream for you."
– Maggie Stiefvater


 
"Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'. I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful."
– John Green


 
"Did you ever think about all of the nights you lived through and can't remember? The ones that were so mundane your brain just didn't bother to record them. Hundreds, maybe thousands of nights come and go without being preserved by our memory. Does that ever freak you out? Like maybe your mind recorded all of the wrong nights?"
 &
 "People should be nice to you, Leonard. You're a human being. You should expect people to be nice."
–Matthew Quick


What quotes have resonated with you over your bookish years? Have you ever printed any on t-shirts or mugs or *gasp* perhaps even some underwear?

Allie has reached the end of her TBR pile and her new books haven't arrived yet and this is surely a sign of the apocalypse. Never fear though, she has homemade salted caramel cookies to ease her pain during these dark times. And new episodes of Game of Thrones.
