TOP TEN TUESDAY: Inspiring Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
The theme this week is the Top Ten Inspiring Quotes From Books.
Most of these quotes are ones that I had liked on goodreads. The rest are ones that I found to complete the "top ten." I'm probably forgetting some, but these are it for now.









“It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.” - Paper Towns by John Green












“Since I was trying so hard to make books lead my life, I didn't want to read them and then just put them back on the shelf and say, “good book,” as if I was patting a good dog. I wanted books to change me, and I wanted to write books that would change others.” - Hole in My Life by Jack Gantos













“Not living your life is just like killing yourself, only it takes longer.” - Glory O'Brien's History of the Future by A.S. King














“The sky is always beautiful. Even when it's dark or rainy or cloudy, it's still beautiful to look at....it'll be there no matter what...and I know it'll always be beautiful.” 

- Hopeless by Colleen Hoover








“But if I'm it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I'm going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.” - The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey












"If you're good at it, and you love it, and it helps you navigate the river of the world, then it can't be wrong.” The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie













“You could rattle the stars," she whispered. "You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.” - Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas














“Dreams are only dreams until you wake up and make them real.” - It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini






“Dude, what matters is that you're happy. What matters is your future. What matters is that we get out of here in one piece. What matters is finding the truth of our own lives, not caring about what other people think is the truth of us.” 
- Ask the Passengers by A.S. King


















“Sometimes placing our belief in something bigger than ourselves helps us to get to a point where we can be enough on our own, magic or no magic.” 
- Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
