Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Shanah @BionicBookWorm that lead us to explore different topics. Don’t be shy and come play with us!
This week will be a hard one too. Not because I don’t have any idea about my favorite book quotes but because I have too many! I won’t comment as I want you to experience them and let it sink in LOL
OK let’s see if I’ll keep it to 5 … or not.
“Everybody is a main character to someone…”
― Amy Harmon, Making Faces
“Try to believe that maybe more light shines out of those who have the most cracks.”
― Mia Sheridan, Archer’s Voice
“They can take our homes, our possessions. Our families. Our lives. They can drive us out, like they’ve driven us out before. They can humiliate us and dehumanize us. But they cannot take our thoughts. They cannot take our talents. They cannot take our knowledge, or our memories, or our minds. In music there is no bondage. Music is a door, and the soul escapes through the melody.”
― Amy Harmon, From Sand and Ash
“A person who never truly lost themselves could never truly find themselves, either.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, Art & Soul
“But you don’t always get what you want. Sometimes you get exactly what you need.”
― Leylah Attar, Mists of the Serengeti
“All humans make mistakes. What determines a person’s character aren’t the mistakes we make. It’s how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.”
― Colleen Hoover, It Ends with Us
And you could you share some of your favorite quotes?
Thanks for reading!
Oh wow!! I have just read ONE book – Colleen Hoover, It Ends with Us – from your list. You chose some amazing books Sophie!!!
Thank you Corina!!! I swear you have to read the others. I know you will love them 😉
LOVE these quotes!! They are so freaking beautiful! <3
Thank you Poulami!!!
Oh wow, thanks for sharing. I love them all, Sophie. Can I copy one of them for my Instagram post?
Of course you can! They are meant to be shared I’m happy you found some inspiring you too Geybie!
Love this list of quotes! Your first quote reminds me of another quote that someone else said, “You are the main character in your own story.” This is one of my favourite quotes, because I think sometimes we let ourselves fade into the supporting cast, and although I think it is good to be considerate and selfless at times, I believe that we should take care of ourselves most of all and remember that we are our own main character 🙂
This is so true. Sometimes we don’t dare enough and do enough just for us as we often help and support others. My US friends helped me to be bolder and dare telling I’m here and I do things I’m proud of. Us European are usually more introvert and in the background. So a dosis of US was a really good thing LOL
Haha yes I do hear that about Europeans vs Americans. I am Canadian- not sure about where we lie on the spectrum but maybe somewhere in between? In my interactions with Americans, they do tend to be straightforward and assertive. Canadians can be indirect in order to be nice and polite but I think it is counter-productive at times haha :’) We apologize about EVERYTHING (which sometimes becomes annoying lol!)
Don’t you worry Sophie we LOVE Canadians. You are known to be really kind
Aww I am so glad to hear that :’) We love the Brits as well. I’ve confirmed with my friends that ANYTHING spoken in a British accent automatically sounds intelligent haha! 🙂
Love the Collen Hoover quote. And your graphics are awesome!
Thank you so much!!!
I haven’t read these books, but looking at the words exactly as they are with no context, I LOVE the light through the cracks quote. That’s so beautiful!
Thank you Wendy and yes I obviously loved this one. I think people who went through hell and back are often the kindest and most beautiful. Cracks and all.
Awesome quotes!!! I love when you can take away something positive from a book!
Oh don’t I know it Trisy as you have your favorite on your blog if I do recall correctly 😉
Love all of these! Thank you for including me. <3
Amy I seriously wanted to quote so many more from you! But I had room only for 5 and I cheated to put 6 LOL
Beautiful Quotes especially Amy Harmon’s! She’s a wonderful writer! 🙂
Oh yes I love her so much Raven!!! I’m happy we have her in commmon . What are some of your favorites?
Great list! I especially like the Colleen Hoover one. It’s so very true (and beautifully written) Thanks again for participating 🙂
Thank you Shanah and you are welcome!!!
