Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Today’s theme is : favorite quotes!
I don’t know you but I love inspiring quotes that give me courage or quotes to remind me to be kind, to believe in the good of human race. Or some quotes that had me laugh so hard while reading the book that they are now fond memories!
I’ll give you a blend of new favorite books and old crushes here!
“Whenever you feel afraid, just remember. Courage is the root of change – and change is what we’re chemically designed to do. So when you wake up tomorrow, make this pledge. No more holding yourself back. No more subscribing to others’ opinions of what you can and cannot achieve. And no more allowing anyone to pigeonhole you into useless categories of sex, race, economic status, and religion. Do not allow your talents to lie dormant, ladies. Design your own future. When you go home today, ask yourself what YOU will change. And then get started.”
― Bonnie Garmus, Lessons in Chemistry
“Why are you looking at me like that?” he inquired. “You used a demonic incantation to pack my stockings!” He raised an eyebrow. “You’re right, that doesn’t sound like something a proper evil sorcerer would do. Next time, I won’t fold them.”
“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it is not the end.”
“Fight because you don’t know how to die quietly. Win because you don’t know how to lose. This king’s ruled long enough it’s time to tear his castle down.”
“How do you take the fight out of half the population and render them willing slaves? You tell them they’re meant to do nothing but serve from the minute they’re born. You tell them they’re weak. You tell them they’re prey. You tell them over and over, until it’s the only truth they’re capable of living.”
― Xiran Jay Zhao, Iron Widow
