Top Ten Tuesday

This week's Ten: Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

This week, especially, I am looking forward to reading others' lists and seeing what they chose. I am horrible about keeping track of book quotes I like so I know I've forgotten/misplaced/missed out on some great ones.

Here's my Top Ten:

“Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.”  from AA Milne

“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
— A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“Being a successful person is not necessarily defined by what you have achieved, but by what you have overcome.”
— Fannie Flagg, The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion

"Just because something isn’t practical doesn’t mean it’s not worth creating. Sometimes beauty and real-life magic are enough. "

Stephanie Perkins: Lola and the Boy Next Door

"I think maybe everybody falls. I think maybe we all do. And I don’t think that’s the asking. I think the asking is whether we get back up again."
-Patrick Ness:  The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

“A scar does not form on the dying. A scar means I survived.”
— Chris Cleave, Little Bee

“Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.”
