Top Ten Favorite Quotes
- “There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater. But sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.
That is the sort of bravery I must have now.” –Veronica Roth, Allegiant
- “Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” – John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

- “It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.” – Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay
- “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

To be painfully honest, compiling this list was close to impossible! I LOVE so many quotes. I kept wanting to add more and more at the end and to include authors that I didn’t think of at first!
