TQOTD - What is your favorite quote from a book?



Thursday’s Question of the Day is back and I’m excited to pick your brains!!

Have you ever had words just move you? I mean to the point of legit tear dropping or page ripping? It’s one of the reasons I love to read - I want to feel an emotion, get lost in it. I want to think “I want a love like that!” or “she better smack that man for that!”

I want to know what words move you, so here’s my question of the day: What is your favorite quote from a book?

Anyone who knows me knows my all time favorite book is Pride and Prejudice and my favorite line from that book is from Mr. Darcy himself:

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

It was in this moment I started crying while wanting to bite off Mr. Darcy’s head. So what quote sticks out most in your head?

LET ME KNOW!

  1. Great question! I have 2, both from Hazel in The Fault in our Stars - 'I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.'

    and...

    "I'm like. Like. I'm a grenade, Mom. I'm a grenade and at some point I'm going to blow up and I would like to minimise the casualties, okay?"

  2. My absolute favorite quote is from Cassandra Clare's CITY OF GLASS.

    “And now I’m looking at you, and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has." - Jace

  3. My favorite quote would probably be that infamous line from Harry Potter "I solemnly swear I am up to no good"
    I often post quotes from books that I'm reading that stand out to me. Most recently, a quote I loved was from Gillian Flynn's Dark Places - “I was not a lovable child, and I'd grown into a deeply unlovable adult. Draw a picture of my soul, and it'd be a scribble with fangs."

      That second quote is so sad, so moving. I just want to hug whoever said that

  4. I've got a favorite quote from Jane Austen also, but mine is in PERSUASION, one of my all-time favorite books. Wentworth says this to Anne Elliott in a letter, near the end of the book.

    "You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope."

  5. "Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins"

    although I also love

    'It is a truth universally acknowledged that a young man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife".

    While I don't particularly like Austen, she was one witty writer

  9. My favorite line is from "Hopeless" by Colleen Hoover

    "Breckin deserved an apology. I acted like an asshole that day."
    "And I didn't deserve one?"
    He looked at me dead on this time.
    "No," he said firmly, turning his gaze back to the road.
    "You don't deserve words, Sky. You deserve actions."

    I get all smiley with that last line. "You deserve actions" My heart can't take it.
