Top Ten Tuesday #3

Hey there! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish

Alaina's Top Ten Favorite Quotes from Books:

1. "It's strange indeed how memories can lie dormant in a man's mind for so many years. Yet those memories can be awakened and brought forth fresh and new, just by something you've seen, or something you've heard, or the sight of an old familiar face."

- Wilson Rawls, Where the Red Fern Grows

2. "Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly."
- Cornelia Funke, Inkheart 

3. "There was a time, actually—you’ll see this in the memories later—when flesh was many different colors. That was before we went to Sameness. Today flesh is all the same."
– Lois Lowry, The Giver

4. “Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Loves is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It dose not take offense and is not resentful. Love take no pleasure in others people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.” 

― Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember

5. “I want to know how to make this girl laugh. I want to know what makes her cry. I want to know what it feels like to have her look at me as if I’m her knight in shinning armor” 
― Simone Elkeles, Perfect Chemistry

6. “It was amazing how you could get so far from where you'd planned, and yet find it was exactly were you needed to be.” 
― Sarah DessenWhat Happened to Goodbye

7. “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

8. “I don't believe in failure, because simply by saying you've failed, you've admitted you attempted. And anyone who attempts is not a failure. Those who truly fail in my eyes are the ones who never try at all. The ones who sit on the couch and whine and moan and wait for the world to change for them.” 
― Sarah DessenKeeping the Moon

9. “I hated labels anyway. People didn't fit in slots--prostitute, housewife, saint--like sorting the mail. We were so mutable, fluid with fear and desire, ideals and angles, changeable as water.” 
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander

10. “Then tell them we've all got meanness in us...But tell them we have some good in us too. And the only thing worth living for is the good. That's why we've got to make sure we pass it on.” 
― Billie Letts, Where the Heart Is
