Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

I love quotes. I love them so much that I can’t read a book without a pack of sticky notes by my side. I’m always ready to mark every single line I find beautiful, and so I’ve ended up with too many quotes to count. I’ve only included ten, but because I have enough to fill journals, I might be back with another edition.

“Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”

“This isn’t about the Ravens. This is about you. This is about everything it took you to get to this point, everything it cost you, and everyone who laughed when you dared to dream of something big and bright. You’re here tonight because you refused to give up and refused to give in. You’re here where they all said you’d never be, and no one can say you haven’t earned the right to play this game. All eyes are on you. It’s time to show them what you’re made of. There’s no room for doubt, no room for second guesses, no room for error. This is your night. This is your game. This is your moment. Seize it with everything you’ve got. Pull out all the stops and lay it all on the line. 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.”

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
Series: The Raven Cycles (#2)
Published: September 17th, 2013
Publisher: Scholastic Press

“He was clearly related to Declan: same nose, same dark eyebrows, same phenomenal teeth. But there was a carefully cultivated sense of danger to this Lynch brother. This was not a rattlesnake hidden in the grass, but a deadly coral snake striped with warning colors. Everything about him was a warning: If this snake bit you, you had no one to blame but yourself.”

  1. Great quotes! I particularly love the HP one! It is so true and I have seen it over and over again in real life, people who are nice to you but mean to others are not nice people.
