My Favourite Literary Quotes.

Literary Quotes are beautiful, I think everyone will know at least one. There the words which connect with us in some unique way which then allows a deeper connection with the text itself. Due to this, I thought that today I would tell you all my favourite quotes from books which I have read.

“Don’t you think its better to be extremely happy for a short while, even if you lose it, than to just be okay for your whole life.” ~ The Time Travellers Wife

“Children betray their parents by becoming their own people” ~ The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” ~ Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” ~ Alice in Wonderland

“There is only one page left to write on. I will fill it with words of only one syllable. I love. I have loved. I will love.” ~ The Time Travellers Wife

“I am haunted by Humans” ~ The Book Thief


I don’t know what attracted me to these quotes precisely but I do know each has meaning to me in different ways, because that’s what quotes do. They are words which connect with your soul.

One thought on “My Favourite Literary Quotes.

  1. Oo! I love this post. 🙂 When I was in undergrad, I wrote quotes on the bathroom tiles (shared bathroom with my suitemates) and I had almost covered in when we had to move out. Hee hee! I thought they were very inspiring and I’d love to do it again, but I’ve yet to find any cool way to do it like I did in college. Sticky notes aren’t the same. :p

    I find the quote from The Strange and Beautiful to be very telling and very true and very sad, but I have noticed it a bit in my own life lately as I become more of an independent adult and less my parent’s child. After all, one must learn to stand on one’s own two feet and determine who they want to be. 🙂 Sometimes that doesn’t align with what our parents wanted us to be, but that’s part of the evolving nature of modern society.

    I also have a special love for Alice in Wonderland quotes. They are so real and so true and are especially important for people who don’t necessarily fit the societal ‘status quo.’ I’m actually hoping to get an Alice in Wonderland quote tattoo with Ches’s face outline. 🙂
