Trying to get back into the swing of book blogging and I thought I’d participate in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is inspiring quotes from books. I may not get to to ten, but here are a few I like.
- “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” –Neil Gaiman, Coraline
- “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what. — Harper Lee, To Kill A Mockingbird
- “IT IS IMPORTANT, when killing a nun, to ensure that you bring an army of sufficient size.” — Mark Lawrence, Red Sister
- “I’d far rather be happy than right any day.” — Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
- “Only children tell the whole truth, you know. That’s what makes them children.” — Stephen King, Pet Sematary
- “Believing in God is as much like falling in love as it is making a decision. Love is both something that happens to you and something you decide upon.” — Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz
