Top Ten Book Quotes I’ve Loved From The Last Year

Anytime I do one of these posts about book quotes, I always have such a hard time because I don’t keep track of quotes in any way.  A few I’ve read in the last couple of months, but others were not so recent (but all were books I’ve read this year).  These are some favorites!

“She cried for the girl who never belonged.  A girl who tried so hard, harder than anyone else, and still never had anything to show for it.”

-Fairest: Levana’s Story  by Marissa Meyer

“I read what I like.”

-Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

“Everything is relative.  If you want to understand a problem you look at its cause.  You don’t look at its manifestation.”

-Does My Head Look Big In This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah

“You have ink in your blood, boy, and no help for it.  Books will never be just a business to you.”

-Ink And Bone by Rachel Caine

“Everything’s a risk.  Not doing anything is a risk.  It’s up to you.”

-Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

“LOG ENTRY: SOL 381 I’ve been thinking about laws on Mars.

Yeah, I know, it’s a stupid thing to think about, but I have a lot of free time.

There’s an international treaty saying no country can lay claim to anything that’s not on Earth. And by another treaty, if you’re not in any country’s territory, maritime law applies.

So Mars is “international waters.”

NASA is an American nonmilitary organization, and it owns the Hab. So while I’m in the Hab, American law applies. As soon as I step outside, I’m in international waters. Then when I get in the rover, I’m back to American law.

Here’s the cool part: I will eventually go to Schiaparelli and commandeer the Ares 4 lander. Nobody explicitly gave me permission to do this, and they can’t until I’m aboard Ares 4 and operating the comm system. After I board Ares 4, before talking to NASA, I will take control of a craft in international waters without permission.

That makes me a pirate!

A space pirate!”

-The Martian by Andy Weir

“She’s the most important person in the world and her family living in poverty. If our mother is so important to science, why can’t we get health insurance?”

-The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

“One should never save cake for later when it can be eaten now.”

-Winter by Marissa Meyer

“I’ve read many more books than you. It doesn’t matter how many you’ve read. I’ve read more. Believe me.”

-Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

“If anyone dies today it will be because they finally have something to believe in. Don’t you even think about taking that away from them now.”

-Winter by Marissa Meyer

  1. I don’t save quotes from books, but I saw another blogger go through Goodreads and look at quotes people saved from her favorite books – loved that idea! And that quote in Henrietta Lack – oh my gosh! I remember reading it and couldn’t believe it.

    • I agree about the quote from Henrietta Lacks, it just floored me! Looking at quotes people saved from favorites is a great idea, I might have to do that if I ever do posts about book quotes again!
