This week’s Top Ten Tuesday with Brooke and the Bookish is “Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes”. I am someone who has written down book quotes for ages. But it seems like I need a better system because there are so many that I loved that I thought I wrote down but now can’t find oh well here’s a handful that I could find. The first one though is my all time favorite it’s stuck with me for years. Check out every one’s list and link up your own here.
Ender’s good, man You just -he doesn’t hate anybody. If you’re a good person, you’re going to like him. You want him to like you. If he likes you, then you’re OK, see? But if you’re scum, he just makes you mad. Just knowing he exists, see? So Ender, he tries to wake up the good part of you.
God’s will. How many times have I heard someone declare their understanding of this thing I find so indefinable?
But, I’m not … special,” Bailey says, “Not the way they are. I’m not anyone important.”
“I know,” Celia says. “You’re not destined or chosen, I wish I could tell you that you were if that would make it easier, but it’s not true. You’re in the right place at the right time. and you care enough to do what needs to be done. Sometimes that’s enough.
So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.
Hate looks just like everybody else until it smiles.
And just like that, I made a friend. I mentally patted myself on the back; Daniel would be proud. Mom would be prouder. I planned to offer this news to her like a cat presenting a dead mouse to it’s owner.

I have The Help on audio. I really need to listen to it. Like, now. Brilliant collection of quotes!
Also, I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never read Matilda. I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately. I think I may just have to pop out to the store today…
I used the same quote from The Help. It was my favorite line of the whole book!

Mathilda! I loved that movie when I was little, because I could identify myself in her reading habits :D The way she came back home with books piled up high, haha.
And I love the Harry Potter quote. There are so many great quotes, full of wisdom, love and also humor.
Nail Gaiman, great! He has some nice lines in his books. So great work on your quotes :D

I don’t have a quote, but I love your taste in books. I just finished reading a book series that I thought you might like. It’s called the Fever series. There were only going to be 5 books in the series, but the writer decided to write two more and the 6 will be coming out this year. It is probably one of my favorite series….aside from Harry Potter.
