Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and Bookish.
Top Ten Favorite Quotes from Books.

There are so many good quotes in books but I am awful at remembering them.  Thank goodness for Goodreads! 
“There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.”
– The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.”
– Looking for Alaska, John Green

”You is kind.  You is smart.  You is important.”
– The Help, Kathryn Stockett

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”
– To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee

”The planet has survived everything, in its time.  It will certainly survive us.”
– Jurassic Park, Michael Crichton

”We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.”

”I guess that’s just part of loving people.  You have to give things up.  Sometimes you even have to give them up.”
-Delirium, Lauren Oliver

”My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy.”

“What is normal? Normal is only ordinary; mediocre. Life belongs to the rare, exceptional individual who dares to be different.”
My Sweet Audrina, VC Andrews

    I love that quote from To Kill a Mockingbird. I’ve never read that book. It was read to my school class by our teacher when I was 11. I can barely remember it. I should really pick it up.

    “It’s our choices that show what we truly are, not our abilities.” Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

    I was pretty suprised. Maybe there are just so many good ones you could have done an entire list just for Harry Potter.
