    Booking Through Thursday – Quotable

    On BTT this week:

    Do you have a favorite quote from a book?

    I have many favourite quotations! I like books for their prose and poetry. I even have a little book of quotations that I collect. Most of my favourite books and series have a few quotations (Shakespeare, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, works of Jane Austen, and so on). Here are a couple I have from my booklet at random:

    “Sometimes you wake. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.” — Neil Gaiman, The Sandman series.

    “To thine own self be true!” — William Shakespeare, Hamlet.

    “Do I contradic myself? Very well then I contradit myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.” — Walt Whitman

    “Death destroys a man; the idea of Death saves him.” — E. M. Forster, Howards End.

    “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage us a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.” — Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird.
