10 of my Favourite Quotes from Books

I <3 2 read

It was challenging to compile just 10 of my favourite lines from literature when I have so many but sometimes life makes you choose, and I chose these ones. If you read, I suggest keeping a notebook where you can write down your favorite lines as you come across them. (That’s what I do!) The ones that inspired you or made you reflect. The ones that no matter how many times you read them, they continue to make you feel something. What are some of your favourite lines?
