What is a quote from a book that you will never forget?

Brandy Potter

Me

This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.
~ Elrond, Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkein

Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons with the greatest for the last. ~ Sherlock Holmes, The Red Circle.

“Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.” from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” ~ Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” by the wonderful Lewis Carroll ~ Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 

“To define is to limit.” by Oscar Wilde ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray.

“People observe the colors of a day only at the beginnings and ends, but to me it’s quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them.” ~The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

“Good writers touch life often. The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her. The bad ones [ravish] her and leave her for the flies.”
~Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

I’m more likely to remember lines from songs than from books, and as soon as someone asks a question like this I blank. I recall quotes because they fit a situation. I think one that has stuck with me is:

“All the same, we do not kneel” said by Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, to Stannis Baratheon (Song of Fire and Ice, A Clash of Kings).

“Here comes Edward Bear down the stairs, bump, bump, bump on the back of his head,” is one I say to the kids all the time. (Which is, of course, the first line of Winnie the Pooh).

“Stupid, stupid Rat Creatures!” From Bone Book 2: The Great Cow Race

“We just tiptoe around things, afraid we’ll offend or look ignorant, be misunderstood. Honesty is a risk few are willing to take.” ~ Flow by Kennedy Ryan

“I don’t think mother’s advice can be right, because what are you supposed to do if you become part of the suffering? You’d be completely lost. On the contrary, beauty remains, even in misfortune. If you could just look for it, you discover more and more happiness and regain your balance. A person who’s happy will make others happy; a person who has courage and faith will never die in misery!”
~Anne Frank the Diary of a Young Girl
