Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes 

In no particular order: 
1. “You’re the one who is weak. You will never know love or friendship. And I feel sorry for you.”

“What are Fred and I? Next door neighbors?”

3. “All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)

Not really. I’ve made inappropriate suggestions and frequently pushed for nudity. But I’ve never asked you out on a real date.”

Dimitri to Rose”

6. “I would die for you. But I won’t live for you.”
Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

7. “But you know: you know that if I could have stayed, if I could have gone on, that I would have clutched every second: whatever it was, this death, you know that it came and took me, like a child carried away by goblins.”

9. “All of us are taking the night off,” Wrath said abruptly. “We need some regroup time.”

Rhage snorted from across the table. “You’re not going to make us play Monopoly again, are you?”

Yup.” A collective groan rose up from the Brotherhood, one that Wrath ignored. “Right after dinner.”
J.R. Ward (Lover Unbound)

10. “You know,” said Arthur, “it’s at times like this, when I’m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I’d listened to what my mother told me when I was young.”
“Why, what did she tell you?”
“I don’t know, I didn’t listen.”

  6. Wonderful list, I especially love number 6. Harry Potter, Hitchhiker and Tolkien made my list too, though not the same quotes.

  7. I also listed a quote from The Fellowship of the Ring – Super cool! It seems I need to re-read HP books again since I completely left out any of those amazing quotes! Great lines!
