Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today I'm one of them :)
This week (May 8th) the topic is:

Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes

Hard one because there are so many good quotes in so many good books, and I do not keep track of quotes like some people.... but here's what I came up with:

1.  "We've all got both light and dark inside us.  What matters is the part we choose to act on.  That's who we really are."  ~Sirius Black, Harry Potter and The Order of Phoenix

Love Sirius!!!  My favorite HP character by far!

2.  "I wonder how long it would take for anyone to notice I just stopped talking."  ~Melinda Sordino, Speak

Such an amazing book, I had to have it on my list!  This book touched me in a way few books have :)

3.  "Stay gold Ponyboy, stay gold." ~Johnny Cade, The Outsiders

One of my fav's from junior high.  Gotta love Johnny & Ponyboy's BFFness.

4.  "There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after.  And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it.  God knows that's what everyone else does."   ~Hazel Grace Lancaster, The Fault in Our Stars

I just read this about a week ago, and wow it was deep.  I loved it, but it depressed me a little too much :(

5.  "Our love is like the wind... I can't see it but I sure can feel it."  ~Landon Rollins Carter, A Walk to Remember

I'm not a big Nicholas Sparks girl, but I read this book when I was less cynical about love...

6.  "If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you."  ~Winnie-the-Pooh

To my BFF Jojo...

7.  "On Ecstasy, Joan Rivers looked like Pam Anderson, so imagine what Pam Anderson looked like."  ~Tommy Lee, The Dirt

Oh The Dirt... Motley Crue's bio.  Such awesomeness!!

8.  “Wherever I go, I'll always see you. You'll always be with me. And there's no happy ending coming here, no way a story that started on a night that's burned into my heart will end the way I wish it could. You're really gone, no last words, and no matter how many letters I write to you, you're never going to reply. You're never going to say good-bye. So I will. Good-bye, Julia. Thank you for being my friend. Thank you for being you.”   ~Amy, Love You Hate You Miss You

This book was like Speak for me, just a little sadder.

9.  "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck chlamydia."  ~April, Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)

Ha!! I about fell off my chair laughing when I read those words. 

10.  "The last contact I ever had with her is the image of her in a dead sprint, a shit, vomit and grease-stained sheet stuck to her body running from my apartment."
"Yeah, I have an upper management role in hell reserved for me."
 ~Tucker Max, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

That pretty much sums up the whole book... hilarious :)

Well that's mine.... What's yours???


  1. Love the Sirius Black quote. Everyone has been quoting his "If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals" but that doesn't reflect very well on him, since he's not that nice to Kreacher.

  2. I like all of these and have some new books for my to be read pile!

  3. I love this list! You have a good mix of serious and funny. I love that Sirius Black one, too. I also liked that one from The Fault in Our Stars although, like you said, it's kind of depressing.

  4. Ahh, Winnie The Pooh is such a sweet bear. I love the quote you choose! :) And Harry Potter of course <3
