This week’s topic: Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books
  1. “It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.” ― John Green, Paper Towns
  2. “I didn’t know. I feel sometimes like…there are all these rules. Just to be a person. You know?”Leila Sales, This Song Will Save Your Life
  3. “Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will”
    John Green, Paper Towns (THIS IS MY FAVORITE)
  4. “I didn’t know it then, how important this boy would become to me and to the people I love the most. But even if I had known, what could I have done differently?” – Jenny Han, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 
  5. “this blue shirt i have is practically the same color as my jeans, and looking all-blue is something only cookie monster can pull off.”David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson
  6. “I just can’t believe that life would give us to each other,’ he said, ‘and then take it back.’
    ‘I can,’ she said. ‘Life’s a bastard.”
    Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park
  7. “Imagination runs out. But it makes sense, right? We probably just imagine things based on what we already know, and we run out of analogies in the thirty-first century.” ― Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore
  8. “Bram was right: people really are like houses with vast rooms and tiny windows. And maybe it’s a good thing, the way we never stop surprising each other.”Becky Albertalli, Simon vs. The Homo Sapien’s Agenda 
  9. “Things usually work out in the end.”
    “What if they don’t?”
    “That just means you haven’t come to the end yet.” ― Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle
  10. “i can’t help thinking that ‘getting a life’ is something only a complete idiot could believe. like you can just drive to a store and get a life. see it in its shiny box and look inside the plastic window and catch a glimpse of yourself in a new life and say, ‘wow, i look much happier – i think this is the life i need to get!’ take it to the counter, ring it up, put it on your credit card. if getting a life was that easy, we’d be one blissed-out race. but we’re not. so it’s like, mom, your life isn’t out there waiting, so don’t think all you have to do is find it and get it. no, your life is right here. and, yeah, it sucks. lives usually do. so if you want things to change, you don’t need to get a life. you need to get off your ass.” ― David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson
