Top Ten Tuesday Twenty Six

Top Ten Quotes I loved from books I read in the last year (ish) 

Top ten tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  I can't tell you long I have been looking forward to this topic as, if you don't know, I am absolutely lover of quotes.  I really enjoyed reading back over some of my dog-eared pages and rediscovering the words that I adored.  So here is my slightly longer list of some of my favourite quotes from the last year - enjoy! 

1) The best discoveries always happened to those who weren't looking for them

2) A life with all its business finished is a live too cautiously lived

3) We had yet to learn that the devil created youth so that we could make our mistakes and that God established maturity and old age so that we could pay for them 
- The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafon 

4) The things you hope for the most are the things that destroy the most in the end

5) Maybe there is something you're afraid to say, or someone you're afraid to love, or somewhere you're afraid to go.  Its gonna hurt.  Its gonna hurt because it matters.

 - Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan 

6) It was living.  Really living, like imagine the width of a moment rather than the length, and two people determined to fill every last millimetre of it.
 - Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher 

7) But the little things are what make up life
 - To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han 

8) The best books, they don't talk about things you never thought about before.  They talk about things you'd always thought about, but that you didn't think anyone else had thought about.  You read them, and suddenly you're a little bit less alone in the world. 

9) All the world was a cage 

10) You didn't win the game of life by losing the least... Real winning was having the most to lose, even if it meant you might lose it all.  Even though it meant you would lose it all, sooner or later

10) Give someone the power of the gods and they will become as indifferent as the gods.

11) Some things, down to the smallest of things, are worth the sum of all things

 - The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey 

12) We are reading the story of our lives 
As though we were in it 
As though we had written it

13) Fate has a strange way of making plans 

14) Normal isn't all it's cracked up to be

15) He said that ghosts are just stories that tell themselves.
So are the living
