Top Ten Tuesday (2) Favorite Quotes From Books

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

3. "If I've learned one lesson from all that's happened to me, it's that there is no such thing as the biggest mistake of your existence. There's not such thing as ruining your life. Life's a pretty resilient thing, it turns out." - The Undomestic Goddess, Sophie Kinsella.

4. "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past." - 1984, George Orwell.

7. “I realize now that dying is easy. Living is hard.” - If I stay, Gale Forman.

8. “He raised an eyebrow, which made me totally jealous. I've never been able to do that. I always just end up raising both of them and looking surprised or scared instead of sardonic.”  - Hex Hall, Rachel Hawkins.

9. “It's like people you see sometimes, and you can't imagine what it would be like to be that person, whether it's somebody in a wheelchair or somebody who can't talk. Only, I know that I'm that person to other people, maybe to every single person in that whole auditorium. 
To me, though, I'm just me. An ordinary kid.”  - Wonder, R.J. Palacio.
