Top Ten Inspiring Quotes From Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to list their top ten inspiring quotes from books. The following quotes are in no particular order. I added a few extra since I couldn't narrow down favorite quotes.

1. “And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” ― Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

3. “We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

4. “West looks up. 'This is the best time to hunt, when the animals are out looking for their suppers. 'Course, with a painted sky, light's not always good.' I never heard someone call the sky painted before, but it's the perfect word. Clouds outlined in gold streak across the firmament, casting uneven shadows over the landscape.” ― Stacey Lee, Under a Painted Sky

5. “Real life was something happening in her peripheral vision.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

6. “I choose you over everyone.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl
