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.

Power, Albus Dumbledore

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.

But don't you think," I persist, 'that it's better to be extremely happy for a short while, even if you lose it, than to be just okay for your whole life?

Book Quote by Mark Haddon from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

But feelings are just having a picture on the screen in your head
of what is going to happen tomorrow or next year
or what might have happend instead of what did happen
and if it is a happy picture they smile,
and if it is a sad picture they cry.

Book Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry from The Little Prince

I ask the indulgence of the children who may read this book for dedicating it to a grown-up. I have a serious reason: he is the best friend I have in the world. I have another reason: this grown-up understands everything, even books about children. I have a third reason: he lives in France where he is hungry and cold. He needs cheering up. If all these reasons are not enough, I will dedicate the book to the child from whom this grown-up grew. All grown-ups were once children– although few of them remember it. And so I correct my dedication:
