Quotes Collection Part One

This year I started a word document where I’ve been keeping quotes from the books I read. I intend to do the same thing next year, the year after and so on. I’ve decided to start sharing them with you week by week. Obviously, whatever is going on in my head and home at the time I’m reading a book makes a big difference to what words grab me and I find this interesting to look back on – I hope you do to.

I really wish I’d thought to start doing this years ago (the quote collecting word document thing). Other than a quote about needing a cunning wizard, the opening lines from Pride & Prejudice and some Dr Seuss, I can’t verbatim remember any quotes from books I’ve read.

It seemed fitting to share the “cunning wizard” quote that’s been randomly popping into my head since 2015 for the first post. The quote is from a book I read in September 2015, The Soul Thief by Majanka Verstraete.

It’s a little too long ago for me to remember what was going on in my life at the time. One could assume my husband was really pissing me off? Or maybe I was taking part in some dangerous underworld activity (ok we all know my life’s not that extreme). Whatever the reason these words hit me hard while I was reading, so hard they’ve never left me.

Bookish Babble: Y16.W12

babble3I’ve been trying to do a Neverland / Peter Pan themed Bookish Babble for weeks now! But when you type in Neverland most of the crap that comes up is Michael Jackson related. So I turned to looking for quotes I liked by the original Peter Pan author. I found four I really liked, so here they are made all pretty, followed by the only two memes I found online worthy of making it into this post. God I love the WordSwag app :-P.“Always be a little kinder than necessary.” James M. Barrie.“Dreams do come true, if we only wish hard enough, You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” James M. Barrie “Temper is a weapon that we hold by the blade.” James M. Barrie.“Life is a long lesson in humility.” James M. Barrie.
