Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week they have a different theme for bloggers to post their top tens about, and this week I’m listing…

My Favorite Book Quotes


“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”

―J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


“Don’t be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don’t have to live forever, you just have to live.”

—Natalie Babbit, Tuck Everlasting


“Some walks you have to take alone.”

—Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay


“I can tell you that the end of a life is the sum of the love that was lived in it, that whatever you think you have sworn, being here at the end of Jem’s life is not what is important. It was being here for every other moment.”

—Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess


“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: We all want everything to be okay. We don’t even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.”

—David Levithan, Every Day


“Hope? Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”

—Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone


“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.”

—Veronica Roth, Divergent


“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”

—Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park


“Just because we’ve been … dealt a certain hand … it doesn’t mean that we can’t choose to rise above — to conquer the boundaries of a destiny that none of us wanted.”

—Stephenie Meyer, Twilight


“That’s the thing about pain. It demands to be felt.”

—John Green, The Fault in Our Stars




This was another difficult topic. I have read so, so many books and so many lines have jumped out at me. So many have found a place in my heart and I carry them with me always. I also found myself struggling not to make this 100% HP quotes because that would be too easy. What book quotes stand out to you? What are some of your favorites?

      1. Yeah, you have so many great quotes to pick and on soooo many subjects! It was really hard, but I’m loving the TTT blog tour so far ♥


  2. Ugh, that Tuck Everlasting quote! Just when I think I’m okay with it, someone reminds me again. T_T This is a great list! though, I totally would’ve been fine with a 100% Harry Potter list, too. 😉
