Quotes : What they mean to us

When we read, we devour the words, we take in everything the book has to offer us and then we come across a phrase, a sentence, or sometimes even a few words that will make us stop for a second, make us think or even make our heart flutter because it meant something to us. These quotes are the one we cherish whenever we reminisce about the book or whenever you feel lost and are in need of guidance or simply need to put a smile on your face because of the memories they hold. I know as a lover of books how much these quotes can affect us, and I'm sure that many of us will relate.

As a lover of words, and a English Literature student, quotes are a big part of my life, whether I want them to be or not. Therefore I have a whole bank of quotes stored in my head constantly, and within these are my favourites. Many of them are simply because I love the books they are from but others are for deeper reasons.

These are a few of my favorites :)

Centrum Permanebit - The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines)

Fear doesnt shut you down, it wakes you up - Divergent

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Hope is the only thing stronger than fear - Catching Fire (THG)

In dreams we enter a world that this entirely our own - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakaban

The only way to survive eternity is to be able to appreciate each moment - Fallen

There is only one thing we say to Death: “Not today" - Game of Thrones

The reason why these are some of my favourite quotes is that they all give me courage and faith when I am either scared or lost. In the past and definitey in the past year I have felt so helpless and lost with what to do my life and these quotes have helped me pull through so much. I practically owe my sanity to the authors who created these, so these quotes will always have a special place in my heart.

What quotes are your favourites ?

  1. Great post - I think two of my favourite quotes are the two Harry Potter ones you mentioned. "Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light" and "In dreams we enter a world that this entirely our own"
