... in books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
This week’s question is:
Top Ten Favorite Quotes from Books

Okay, this is a hard one. I love reading books and finding quotes I like but normally I read them, think about them and forget them. I don't write them down, I don't mark or highlight them in anyway.
So I don't have a collection of bookish quotes. I would love to have one someday and maybe this TTT is finally pushing me towards collecting them. 
What I have is a small collection of quotes I like - not from books but quotes in general. 

Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. 
The Cinderella Story

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but 
by the moments that take our breath away. 
Joanna Fluke "A Hannah Swensen Mystery" 
(this actually is out of a book but I don't know which book out of this series)

A pencil and a dream can take you anywhere!

I'd rather have a life of "oh wells" than a life of "what ifs". 

No matter where you are in your life right now, no matter who you are, no matter how old 
you are - it is never too late to be who you are meant to be!


  1. What a great list of quotes! I love them all :)
    Angela @ AJ Arndt Books

  2. I like the Oh Wells and What ifs quote - it's certainly something to think about.
