Top Ten Tuesday - Inspirational/Thought Provoking Quotes from Books

Today's Top Ten Tuesday has to do with quotes.   The Top Ten list comes from The Artsy Girl's blog, so check her out!   This is one of my FAVORITE things about books - finding a really good line that makes the book mean that much more to me.

Let's start with one of my favorite books:


I loved all the Game of Thrones books and there are a lot of quotes that I could pull from this series.  But I will go with this one.  Right now the TV show is giving me high anxiety.  Arya has never been one of my favorite characters (book or show), but after Monday?  She took a step up in my mind.


This is from the book "Like Water on Stone".  I liked this book very much, and while this isn't one of my favorite books, this quote has stuck with me.


 "Children everywhere have similar ways of entertaining themselves. If you look at it this way, the world isn’t so big"

This is from the book "The Boy That Harnessed The Wind".  That was a great book and the movie was great too, if you have a chance to check it out.


This is from the book "Just Mercy"  I read this book last year for my book club, and I admit that I liked it much more than I thought I would.  


I love "The Martian".  It is a smart, funny, intelligent read.  And the movie was just as good!  Check it out.


This is from the Book Thief.  I loved this book.  I read it a few years ago after putting it off for a long time (for some unknown reason) and it ended up being one of my favorite books of that year.  


I have read all of Fredrik Backman's books, but "A Man Called Ove" remains my favorite.  Probably because it was the first one I read.  I have seen the original movie as well, and I am looking forward to seeing the new one starring Tom Hanks.


The Shadow of the Wind.  This was my favorite book last year and is actually one of my favorite books of all time.  It is an incredible read, and I wish they would make it into a movie.


I won't deny that I do love Michelle Obama.  I read her book last year as well, and it was really, really good.  That is a wise woman.  I sure do miss her.


Ah, the great John Steinbeck.  I loved this book "Travels With Charley".  If you don't know who Charley is - it is his dog.  He took him across the country and wrote about their trip.  Great book.

That is my list!  What is yours?  Put in the comments you FAVORITE quote
