TTT #162 – My Top Inspirational Book Quotes

Posted April 30, 2019 by Lillian in Features / 7 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together

Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Inspirational/Thought-Provoking Book Quotes.” I’ve done similar topics in the past three different times, the most recent in March of last year. Below are my favorite thought-provoking/inspirational book quotes in no particular order.

My Top Ten Inspirational/Thought-Provoking Book Quotes

What more honored estate can there be for a woman in this world than to be mother to a son?

From I Am Livia by Phyllis T. Smith

There are only so many moments in one’s life, and then it’s over. And I’m determined to make the most of every moment from here on out.

From The Star Dwellers by David Estes

They can go about collecting every material thing of worldly value, but they’re missing everything that truly counts. When you’ve got nothing else, family means everything to you. Far as I’m concerned, funny jokes, sharing the good and the bad, and supporting each other’s better than all the fancy cars, houses, and clothes in the world.

From Clean Slate Complex by Megan Thomason

Technology had created a chasm where our hearts used to be, interpersonal relationships were reduced to random bits of code. People didn’t talk any more, communication was all electronic – emails, text messages. It was all too easy, nobody thought before they spoke, and there was no accountability. Relationships ended with the click of a button.

From The Legion by Melissa Delport

Leave tomorrow for the cowards. Today you must be fearless.

From Tearing Down the Wall by Tracey Ward

Who cares about ephemeral beauty when the man you love still brings you coffee and a chocolate chip cookie when he’s seventy-three?

From For Better or For Worse by Ingrid Nickelsen

Fear is a phoenix. You can watch it burn a thousand times and still it will return.

From Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

It was impossible, of course. But when did that ever stop any dreamer from dreaming?

From Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Time was never neutral and often felt dangerous. We either think we have all the time in the world or time moves too fast or too slow, a shock can stop time; fear or impending pain can slow it. Time never simply is…And no matter how much you want to hang on to it, time runs out.

From The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay

If there was a fate worse than death, it was a life unremembered.

From Invictus by Ryan Graudin
