Top Ten Quotes I Loved From Books I Read In The Past Year Or So”


  1. “Courage isn’t about the absence of fear. Courage is doing the one thing you think you cannot do.” The Sound of Glass, Karen White
  2. “You must be the best judge of your own happiness.”
    Jane Austen, Emma
  3. “True love isn’t a vow to live happily ever after, but a promise to overcome the challenges of entwining two lives and two hearts, two pasts and two futures. True love understands its own worth.” Love in the Elephant Tent: How Running Away with the Circus Brought Me Home, Kathleen Cremonesi
  4. “People think boundaries and borders build nations. Nonsense-words do. Beliefs, declarations, constitutions-words. Stories. Myths. Lies. Promises. History”  Libba Bray, The Diviners

  6. “There’s no great dividing line between being a kid and an adult. We’re not all caterpillars turning into butterflies. You are what you are. When you grow up, you may be more careful than when you were a kid. You don’t say what you think as much as you once did. You learn to play nice. But you’re still the same person who did good things or rotten things when you were young. Whether you feel good about them or bad … whether you regret them. Well, that’s a different thing. But it’s not like they disappear forever.” Matthew Dicks, The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs
  7. “We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.” Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
  8. “In them, she saw the sham of her life laid out like a book, the foolish belief that she, that anyone, could escape the consequences of this world, could flee from death. That was the deceit. The true serpent in the garden.” Libba Bray, The Diviners
  9. “Real friends were the kind where you pick up where you’d left off, whether it be a week since you’d seen each other or two years.”
    Jojo Moyes, One Plus One
  10. “Because even if the whole world was throwing rocks at you, if you still had your mother or father at your back, you’d be okay. Some deep-rooted part of you would know you were loved. That you deserved to be loved.”
    Jojo Moyes, One Plus One
