(Meme) Top Ten Tuesday

I found the blog and bloggers who started Top Ten Tuesday, and its The Broke and the Bookish blog. They have several bloggers who contribute to the blog. If you haven’t already discovered this blog then you should check them out.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes.

I have to admit that I don’t tend to keep track of my favorite quotes but after today’s meme I think I will start to keep track of them more.

I am not sure if I will be able to come up with ten but I am going to give it a try. Here is my Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes.

  1. “Metabolisms are evil, wicked, vile things.” — Johanna Edwards, The Next Big Thing. ( I remember when I read this I had to laugh and I agree.)
  2. “There was more scope for imagination,” Anne of Green Gables
  3. “Would you rather be if you had the choice- divinely beautiful or dazzlingly clever, or angelically good?” Anne of Green Gables. ( I always wanted to be divinely beautiful.)
  4. “We’ve all got meanness in us but we’ve all got goodness too and the only thing worth living for is the good and that is why we’ve got to make sure and pass it on.”
    (Where the heart is)
  5. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Oh The Places You will go
  6. “Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.”
  7. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” (To Kill a Mockingbird)
  8. “But if you took every memory, every moment and stretched them out end to end, – they’d reach forever” (My Sister’s Keeper)
  9. “I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.” (To Kill a Mockingbird)
  10. “Yeah, man school just started, and already you’re reading way too many book,” (The Queen of Cool)

So these are some of my favorite quotes, what are yours?

  1. Great quotes, Cindy! I love the opening line of Gods in Alabama. I’ve been wondering how you’re doing.

  2. I only have one quote to share from a book: Here’s mine.

  3. I never can remember the great quotes I’ve enjoyed. I always have to go look them up. But I am re-reading To Kill A Mockingbird right now and found that I was dog earing pretty much ever page to mark the passages I loved. Those you mentioned here are 2 of many that I carry with me!
