Top Ten Tuesday | Favorite Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

If you know me at all, you know I am such a quote searcher. Lyrical prose is probably my favorite element of reading! So when I saw that this week’s topic was wanting us to showcase some of our favorite quotes, I knew I had to participate! And I hope you all enjoy! (PS – I am very aware that I’m sappy & a hopeless romantic!) 💕

Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man’s Fear

“It had flaws, but what does that matter when it comes to matters of the heart? We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.”

Holly Black, The Darkest Part of the Forest

“We love until we do not. For us, love doesn’t fade gradually. It snaps like a branch bent too far.”

J.D. Salinger, A Girl I Knew

“She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”

Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give

“That’s the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?”

Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

“Please never forget that the sun rises and sets with your smile. At least to me it does. You’re the only thing on this planet worth worshipping.”

V.E. Schwab, A Conjuring of Light

“Love and loss,” he said, “are like a ship and the sea. They rise together. The more we love, the more we have to lose. But the only way to avoid loss is to avoid love. And what a sad world that would be.”

George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.”

Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles

“I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.”

Elliot Wake, Black Iris

“I wouldn’t have to explain that I fall in love with minds, not genders or body parts.”

Edwidge Danticat, Breath, Eyes, Memory

“Love is like the rain. It comes in a drizzle sometimes. Then it starts pouring and if you’re not careful it will drown you.”

Ah, my heart! All ten of these mean the world to me. And it was actually really hard to narrow down if I’m being honest. But please, let me know your favorite quote and the book it is from! Also, friendly reminder, while you are reading this: I am in Hawaii, so if I’m slow writing back and/or seeing your favorite quotes, I promise to fix that when I get home! I hope you all are having the happiest of reading! 💖

  1. I love all the quotes you chose! Especially the one from The Wise Man’s Fear, it’s absolutely stunning and so meaningful ♥ I couldn’t pick a favourite quote, there are too many incredible ones out there; one quote I find beautiful though is from The Witchlands series by Susan Dennard: “Trust me as if my soul were yours” and its mirror quote, “I trust you as if my soul were yours”. It holds so much meaning in the series, and I just love it so much.
