Top Ten Tuesday: Book Quotes I Saved Recently

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is a Book Quote Freebie. I am so bad at writing down quotes from books. (Or maybe I’m just bad at noticing good quotes to write down?) So for this prompt, I’m going to share the last 10 quotes (from different books) I saved either by posting it on Goodreads, saving it in my notes app, or physically writing it down.

“Relief and freedom came in acknowledging and accepting our brokenness. It was okay to be broken as long as we didn’t build a home in it. It was okay to admit it. And to unite with a goal of healing.” Wishtress by Nadine Brandes

“Sometimes it takes being powerless to understand what it means to be powerful” –Aru Shah and the Nectar of Immortality by Roshani Chokshi

“You judge a person by how they treat the lost, those with nowhere to go and no one to help them.” –The Language of Ghosts by Heather Fawcett

“Every person is the main character in their own story, even the women stuffed in the attics.” –Being Mary Bennet by J.C. Peterson

“Do you know how to fight against somethin’ like that, somethin’ that knocks you down and tells you to stay down if you know what’s good for you? Do you know how to beat that? You get. Back. Up.” –Tristan Strong Destroys the World by Kwame Mbalia

“It’s true that people do the most desperate things for those they love. Some might even call it a sacrifice…. But I think it might be the other way around. I think it would be a terrible sacrifice to do nothing.” –The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh

“Two meters tall. Bipedal. Flowing black robes trailing from the figure and a face forever masked by a functional if bizarre black metal breath screen—a Dark Lord of the Sith was an awesome, threatening shape as it strode through the corridors of the rebel ship.” –Star Wars: A New Hope by George Lucas

“A lot of times those little facts get smudged out of the history books. If you gon’ tell a story, you better be sure you’re telling the right one.” –Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia

“Beautiful, graceful, AND married to a dragon. Sometimes life was so unfair.” –The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine

“Sure, you can kill monsters, trap them, take their children. But that only feeds them, really. What keeps them at bay is facing them, having a conversation, sitting down to tea.” –The School Between Winter and Fairyland by Heather Fawcett

    • I don’t always write them down either. It happens every once in a while when something really stands out! But I should do better as well 🙂
