Q: Favorite Literary Quote:

Guys, I am the quote queen. Seriously. In HS, I used to cover my folders with my favorite book quotes. Here are just a few:

"There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
is bound in shadows and in miseries.
On such a full sea we are now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
or lose our ventures."- Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare

“The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.” Les Misérables, Victor Hugo


“Because I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. You’ll see that there is life in the desert, that there are stars in the heavens and that tribesmen fight because they are part of the human race. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living right now.”- The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” On The Road, Jack Kerouac

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien

  19. Awesome quotes! I have never read these books but of course I know about the Lord of The Rings- I am a huge fan of the films since I was a child and I am planning to read the books soon! Les Miserables is sitting on my shelf and I think I will be reading it before September, can be useful since I am going to study it in French Literature. Shakespeare is great even if I do not love poetry that much and also Coelho is an author I should try (:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a great Sunday!
