Top Ten Tuesday #9

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week's Top Ten List is:
Top Ten Favorite Quotes From Books
I personally love quotes I have hundreds hand written in notebooks. These are just a few of the ones I love:

Outlander (Outlander, #1)
“Ye are Blood of my Blood, and Bone of my Bone,
I give ye my Body, that we Two might be One.
I give ye my Spirit, 'til our Life shall be Done.”
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, # 1)
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Green Darkness
“Truth is naturally universal...and shines into many different windows, though many are clouded.”
Anya Seton, Green Darkness

Long Walk to Freedom
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”
Nelson Mandela

Journey to the Centre of the Earth

“While there is life there is hope. I beg to assert...that as long as a man's heart beats, as long as a man's flesh quivers, I do not allow that a being gifted with thought and will can allow himself to despair.”
Jules Verne, Journey to the Centre of the Earth
The Mysterious Island
“In presence of Nature's grand convulsions man is powerless.”
Jules Verne, The Mysterious Island
Outlander (Outlander, #1)
“Boldness in battle is nothing out of the way... but to face down fear in cold blood is rare in any man.”
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander
Tarzan of the Apes (Tarzan, #1)
“I love you, and because I love you I believe in you. But if I did not believe, still should I love. Had you come back for me, and had there been no other way, I would have gone into the jungle with you - forever.”
Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan of the Apes
The Lost World
“There are times, young fellah, when every one of us must make a stand for human right and justice, or you never feel clean again.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Lost World
The Fellowship of the Ring
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
