Book Quote by Jodi Picoult from My Sister's Keeper - 326

I told you to get a seat on the left side of the bus, so that when it pulled away, you'd be able to look back and see me there, watching for you. You get that same seat in Heaven. One where you can watch me, watching you

It is so easy to think the world revolves around you, but all you have to do, is stare up at the sky to realize it isn't that way at all.

Book Quote by Nicholas Sparks from The Notebook

I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

Book Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafón from The Shadow of the Wind

Once, in my father's bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later - no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget - we will return.

The heart's memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good. And thanks to this artifice we manage to endure the burden of the past.

Book Quote by Charles Dickens from Oliver Twist

Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one anciently common to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born; on a day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, inasmuch as it can be of no possible consequence to the reader, in this stage of the business at all events; the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter.

Book Quote by Lance Armstrong from It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life

At the end of the day, if there was indeed some Body or presence standing there to judge me, I hoped I would be judged on whether I had lived a true life, not on whether I believed in a certain book, or whether I'd been baptized.

Book Quote by Oscar Wilde - The Canterville Ghost

Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.

Book Quote by Stephenie Meyer from Twilight - Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen

'And so the lion fell in love with the lamb...' he murmured.
I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word.
'What a stupid lamb', I sighed.
'What a sick, masochistic lion.' Edward smiled.

Book Quote by Joanne K. Rowling from Harry Potter - and the Goblet of Fire

You place too much importance... on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!

Book Quote by Stephenie Meyer from Twilight - 93

Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me.

Brom: 'The sands of time cannot be stopped. Years pass whether we want them or not... but we can remember. What has been lost may yet live on in memories. That which you will
hear is imperfect and fragmented, yet treasure it, for without you it does not exist. I give you now a memory that has been forgotten, hidden in the dreamy haze that lies behind us.'

Book Quote by Michael Connelly from Lost Light

There is no end of things in the heart. Somebody once told me that. She said it came from a poem she believed in. She understood it to mean that if you took something to heart, really brought it inside those red velvet folds, then it would always be there for you. No matter what happened, it would be there waiting. She said this could mean a person, a place, a dream. A mission. Anything sacred. She told me that it is all connected in those secret folds. Always. It is all part of the same and will always be there, carrying the same beat as your heart.

Book Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafón from The Shadow of the Wind

Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.

Book Quote by Joanne K. Rowling from Harry Potter - and the Deathly Hallows

It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.

Book Quote by Stephenie Meyer from Twilight - 514

Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars -- points of light and reason... And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn't see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.
