A couple of months ago, I began to flag the pages of books where a line or paragraph stood out to me.
So I thought it would be fun to take a look at all the quotes that have inspired me or were relatable or what have you throughout the course of my life thus far. Generally speaking, I think it takes a strong sense of hope and also talks of adventure for a quote to really capture my heart.
But mostly because we can’t get enough of great quotes – here are some of my favorites:
This is one of my all time favorites because it’s so relatable. It’s essentially the definition of the human experience. I think this is why so many people are drawn to books. You can experience different cultures, different genders, different religions, etc. all in the span of one novel.
I don’t actually believe in the afterlife, but I really love this quote. Harry Potter is all about accepting and defeating the fear of death and to see any trial as a means for adventure.
I’m not entirely sure why, but this quote gives me a great sense of calm in regards to my role in this universe. The key to life is to keep going and to always value and utilize the time we have left.
This is such a scary truth. It’s a good quote to keep in mind considering the current times…
I love this quote. I feel this is really the heart of The Lord of the Rings. No matter if Sauron conquered Middle Earth, he never would have been able to truly rid the world of good for there is “light and high beauty forever beyond its reach.” Just… ❤
And because this best describes everyone who stumbles across this blog…
I think all of us book lovers can relate to this feeling.
