With the miserable summer heat making me feel very disgruntled and all the difficulties in the world right now, I just felt like making a quick fun uplifting post for everyone. So today I’m going to be sharing ten inspiring quotes that are empowering from a few of my all time favorite books.
This is also a great way to share some books that I love, which everyone knows is a favorite thing of mine to do! I’ve included some good authors such as David Eddings, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Harper Lee, and more!
The rest of the month I have some book reviews pending, a couple history post, a murder Monday in the works; however, I have a couple side projects so we will see what the end of the month looks like as far as the last week of August goes. Leave a comment with your favorite book quotes below! Lets us all lift each other up and be inspired by the words of our favorite authors!
Quote #1: Polgara The Sorceress “Now there’s something for you to think about. If you don’t know that you can’t do something, isn’t there a remote possibility that you’ll go ahead and do it anyway in absolute defiance of physical law? That might be one of the drawbacks of education. If you don’t know that you can’t pick yourself up by the scruff of the neck and hold yourself at arm’s length, maybe you can.”
Quote #2: Anne Of Green Gables
“Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them– that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another. It does make life so interesting.”
Quote #3: Les Misérables
“The future has several names. For the weak, it is impossible; for the fainthearted, it is unknown; but for the valiant, it is ideal.”
Quote #4: A Tale Of Two Cities
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”
Quote #5: To Kill A Mockingbird
“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”
Quote #6: The Hobbit
“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”
Quote #7: A Wrinkle In Time
“Life, with its rules, its obligations, and its freedoms, is like a sonnet: You’re given the form, but you have to write the sonnet yourself.”
Quote #8: Shatter Me
“Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.”
Quote #9: The Little Prince
“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Quote #10: The Glass Castle
“I wanted to let the world know that no one had a perfect life, that even the people who seemed to have it all had their secrets.”
