Top Ten Tuesday: Book Quotes!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by ThatArtsyReaderGirl!

Today’s topic is quotes! Honestly this one’s kind hard for me: I don’t typically tab my books or anything, nor do I underline quotes or whatever. So I don’t have ten, I have seven, pbtbtbt. Also, these are in no particular order, except the last, which is my favorite.

When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world you fear what he might say.

George R. R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

Could there be irony crueler than this? How, upon his rescue, the truth had brought him here, to a house for the mad, for only a madman believes what every child knows to be true: There are monsters that lie in wait under our beds.

Rick Yancey, The Monstrumologist

My mother said I broke her heart…but it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, but it’s all we have left in this place. It is the very last inch of us…but within that inch we are free.

Alan Moore, V For Vendetta

When considering a man’s motives, remember you must not measure his wheat with your bushel. He may not be using the same standard at all.

Robin Hobb, The Assassin’s Apprentice

The internet is amazing because it connects us with one another. But it’s also horrific because . . . it connects us with one another.

Felicia Day, You’re Never Weird on the Internet

More than anything else in the universe, more than power to dictate law at Taranoke, more than the knowledge of the count of stars in the sky, Baru wanted in that moment to speak the truth.

But she had no tongue for it. She had burnt all her truth away. Alloyed it into the machine.

Seth Dickinson, The Traitor Baru Cormorant

Senlin loved nothing more in the world than a warm hearth to set his feet upon and a good book to pour his whole mind into. While an evening storm rattled the shutters and a glass of port wine warmed in his hand, Senlin would read into the wee hours of the night. He especially delighted in the old tales, the epics in which heroes set out on some impossible and noble errand, confronting the dangers in their path with fatalistic bravery. Men often died along the way, killed in brutal and unnatural ways; they were gored by war machines, trampled by steeds, and dismembered by their heartless enemies. Their deaths were boastful and lyrical and always, always more romantic than real. Death was not an end. It was an ellipsis. There was no romance in the scene before him. There were no ellipses here. The bodies lay upon the ground like broken exclamation points.

Josiah Bancroft, Senlin Ascends

Three Quotes Challenge – Day 1 | Nanowrimo edition

Book Tag

Hello! Today a tag! I was tagged by the Orangutan Librarian, so thanks friend! 😀

What they did was rather interesting – instead of just random quotes, they used favorite first lines from books! So I’m going to twist it as well, but in a different way. For those of you who haven’t seen my word vomit lately, I’m participating in Nanowrimo this year. Therefore, I’ve decided to post quotes that inspire me or relate to the story I am writing.

Rules

• Thank the person who nominated you
• Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
• Nominate three new bloggers each day

(trigger warning for suicide)


One of my characters goes through.. well, he goes through some pretty difficult things. But, don’t worry, he’s the hero of my story.

Today I tag: Hadeer @CaireneLibrarian, Sarah @DragonsandZombies and Katy @BookbinderWay

See you next time, peeps!

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.

Today’s quote:

Jill Tarter:

And that’s why I keep telling myself that my grade in computational theory doesn’t matter in the long run. Small thing compared to everything else.

And that’s it! I really enjoyed doing this – it gave me a chance to look back through my quotes collection that I haven’t touched in ages – a lot of them were collected during specific episodes in my life, so it brought back some nostalgia, which was nice.


Anyways, I tag: Panda (whenever you get back. :”D), booksandbakes1 and Sublime Reads!

Do it.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.:

This is me basically saying the reason I don’t do stuff is that I’m inherently lazy. Need to work on that. Though it’s nice to think about that I have the same amount of time as all these incredible people – all I need to do is utilize it.


Until tomorrow!

3 Days, 3 Quotes Tag – Day 1

Hello! I’ve been tagged in a not-book-tag! And it looked really fun, so I’m going to do it! Thank you Gel for tagging me! The rules for this tag are as follows:

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days.
  3. Nominate 3 bloggers each day.

And this is Day 1, so here is my quote for today:

by ???:

The originator of this quote is unknown, so if you know who spoke these words, please let me know so I can give credit.

I like this quote because I’m a very indecisive person that worries a lot about decisions that I do end up making. This method helps me be sure of what I really want (and it really does work for me, too. It’s lovely).

I have this quote and a bunch of others on my pinterest quote board, if you’re interested.


Otherwise, that’s the first one! See you tomorrow with the second.

I tag:

Ace, Amanda and Mai

Do it.
