Top Ten Inspiring Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is, as always, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Today's topic is inspiration book quotes.  I love a good book quote, but am lazy about writing them down, mainly because I'm usually devouring the story and can't be bothered to grab a notebook and pen.  Thanks to Goodreads' quotes section, I pulled out these quotes, which I remember striking a chord with me when I originally read them.

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

She was the heir of ash and fire and she would bow to no one.

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”
~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”
~ A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
~ Neil Gaiman, Coraline

The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.

~ John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”

“One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” 
~ Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel
