Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Quotes

Hey all, I’m here to throw in a non-Banned Books Week post into the mix here πŸ˜‰

I’ve been seeing other bloggers do Top Ten Tuesday posts, and I wanted to join in the fun since this weeks prompt is Top Ten Book Quotes! Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl hosts Top Ten Tuesday’s every week, so go check out her blog (where you’ll also find more bloggers who participated in that weeks round of Top Ten Tuesday)!

For this list, I’m going to pick five books, and pull my top two favorite quotes from them, as some books are just so quotable and my indecisive nature makes it hard for me to just pick one quote from an entire book. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

On that note, here are my Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes…for now!


Unfortunately, Canva was having issues with the other images I created, so I’ll just put the quotes in plain text below:

“Having chosen to balance an academic career with a primary commitment to intellectual work, I see firsthand the tensions between the two choices. My primary engagement is with ideas, not personalities or networks. Racial openness is essential for intellectual work, independent thinking. Allegiances to institutions or powerful factions within those locations often constrain and inhibit independent thought.”

“Our freedom is sweet. It will be sweeter when we are all free.”


“I could say the night felt magical, but that would be embellishment. That would be romanticization. What it actually felt like was life.”

“I was okay just a moment ago. I will learn how to be okay again”


“Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you’ll meet a boy who will learn your favorite flower, your favorite song, your favorite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won’t matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart.”

“The easiest way to steal a man’s wallet is to tell him you’re going to steal his watch. You take his attention and direct it where you want it to go.”


Thanks for reading through my little post here, and don’t forget to check out the Top Ten Tuesday post from That Artsy Reader Girl!
