Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. This week’s theme is Book Quotes. I have chosen ten quotes from books that I have read, that speak to me. Well, except for the CS Lewis one, which is on my coffee mug I use each morning, and the quote from Malala which is about education and literacy, which is so important to me.
1.“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.” – Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
2. “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” – C.S. Lewis
3. “So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install a lovely bookshelf on the wall.” – Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
4. “Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.” — Malala Yousafzai, UN Youth Assembly
6. “Wasn’t that the point of the book? For women to realize, We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I’d thought.” ―
7. “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been.” ―
8. “There is nothing sweeter in this sad world than the sound of someone you love calling your name.” — Kate DiCamillo, The Tale of Despereaux
9. “A friend may be waiting behind a stranger’s face.” — Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter
10. “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” — L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
