Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a book blog tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Today's topic is Top Ten Quotes I Liked in Recently Read Books. I don't remember specific quotes, so I'll be taking these from the Goodreads quotes put up by other readers from the high-rated books I've recently read.
1) “I hope your bacon burns.” From Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones (MG fantasy). This isn't a particularly gorgeous quote, but I think this is a pretty legit way to curse someone. It made me laugh.
2) “There is only one sin, and that is theft... When you tell a lie, you steal someone's right to the truth.” From The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (adult contemporary-historical, Middle Eastern).
3) “I suppose sooner or later in the life of everyone comes a moment of trial. We all of us have our particular devil who rides us and torments us, and we must give battle in the end.” From Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (classic mystery). There's a lot of gorgeous prose in this one.
4) “I wondered how many people there were in the world who suffered, and continued to suffer, because they could not break out from their own web of shyness and reserve, and in their blindness and folly built up a great distorted wall in front of them that hid the truth.” Also from Rebecca.
5) “There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” From Hamlet by William Shakespeare (classic tragedy). Yes, this was a reread.
6) “Madness in great ones must not unwatched go.” Also from Hamlet.
7) “There's plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes, if you wish to look for it.” From Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (YA historical paranormal).
8) "'Hark,' he said, his tone very dry. 'What stone through yonder window breaks?' Kami yelled up at him, 'It is the east, and Juliet is a jerk!'” From Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (YA paranormal). Once again, a quote that made me laugh.
9) “Kami'd always retold her fairy tales to make the fair maidens braver and more self-sufficient, but she had never had any real objection to the handsome prince.” Also from Unspoken.
10) "I have given you my soul; leave me my name!” From The Crucible by Arthur Miller (classic tragedy).
So there's today's post! What are some quotes you really love? Do you remember quotes from the books you read? I'll see you again tomorrow.
