I already did a post on quotes about writing, but I thought I'd show you my favorite quotes in general. Some of these will be repeats from that post, so I apologize for that. You might have noticed that I really, really like books and writing... LOL. Well, quotes are very important to me. All the beautiful wordy words. I use a lot of quotes in my books, which is really fun. I had them all over THE CHOSEN FOUR series, for example.
Anyway, enjoy the beautiful quotes!
"Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth." -- Albert Camus
"Show me what's it like to be the last one standing / Teach me wrong from right / And I'll show you what I can be." -- "Savin Me" by Nickelback

"...as I said in a former commandment, even so will I fulfill--I will fight your battles." -- D+C 105:14
"The truth. It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and must therefore be treated with great caution." -- Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
"Music is love in search of a word." -- Sidonie Gabrielle
"...and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you..." -- "i carry your heart with me(i carry it" by E.E. Cummings
"Finally, he can see me for who I really am. Violent. Distrustful. Manipulative. Deadly. And I hate him for it.” -- Katniss Everedeen from Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
"That's the thing about pain. It demands to be felt." -- Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." -- St John 1:1

"In a gentle way, you can shake the world." -- Mohandas Ghandi
“Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us!” -- Katniss Everdeen from Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
"Ask me no more: thy fate and mine are seal'd: I strove against the stream and all in vain: Let the great river take me to the main..." -- "Ask Me No More" by Lord Alfred Tennyson
"I believe the universe wants to be noticed." -- Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
And finally, my favorite quote of all time:
“Of course it is happening inside your head, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” -- Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Thanks for reading, and come back next time for a couple of short stories I wrote. I'm not much of a short story gal, but I hope you like them! I put a lot of work into figuring out how to make short stuff actually readable. I mean, it's a skill I need for query letters, it turns out.
Anyway, real quickly can I just point out... the last LBD episode? (Not talking about the Q+A that came out this morning--although that entirely made my day. I need me a William Darcy.) I've watched it more times than I can count. I'm SO HAPPYYYYY! Although, the bad news is, only two episodes left... yikes. What do I do with my life when this is all over?
I'm an unpublished novelist, primarily of YA fantasy, and a freelance editor. I love psychology, cats, social justice, and love! I'm also a huge fangirl. More than anything, stories are my life.
