Top Ten Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish bloggers. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists. And because they know many of their fellow bloggers love lists too (LIKE ME), they made this meme for us all to participate and share.
How it works: Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers from The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join! All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers. Future Top Ten Tuesday topics are posted here

1.  “Wishes are false. Hope is true. Hope makes its own magic.”

3. "I am beginning to measure myself in strength, not pounds. Sometimes in smiles."

4. "There is light at the end of every tunnel. Some tunnels just happen to be longer than others."

5. “The things that go wrong often make the best memories.” 

6. "Nothing makes you appreciate life more then when you wake up from a nightmare and realize it was just that. It's a good reality check."

8. "You are who you are, whether you like it or not, so why not like it?"

10. "Who are we if not the stories we pass down? What happens when there's no one left to tell those stories? To hear them? Who will ever know that I existed?" 


  1. Such amazing quotes!! Love em :-)

  2. This is a fabulous list! I'm thinking I need to start writing down quotes I like as I read.

    1. Thanks Dana. I only had a few written down, the others I had to search for again because I couldn't remember them. But GOODREADS has tons of quotes on their site.

  3. WOW...this is a fabulous list. I love the one from ReVamped. So true.

    1. Have you read ReVamped? LOVE IT! :)

  4. Wonderful quotes! I love them all, but especially 1, 2, 5, and 8.

    1. Aren't they great? :) I think I need to start keeping track of great quotes more often. This post inspired to mark pages with little sticky flags while reading so I can keep track of the ones that should be remembered. :)


I read every comment and try to reply to them all. Thanks for visiting my little piece of the blogosphere.
