10 Best Quotes From Famous Books

1. On The Road, Jack Kerouac

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never say common place things, but burn, BURN, burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the sky”

3. Paper Towns, John Green

“When did we see each other face-to-face? Not until you saw into my cracks and I saw into yours. Before that, we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.”

4. Thirteen Reasons Why, Jay Asher

“You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.”

5. Just One Year, Gayle Forman

‚ÄúSometimes fate or life or whatever you want to call it, leaves a door a little open and you walk through it. But sometimes it locks the door and you have to find the key, or pick the lock, or knock the damn thing down. And sometimes, it doesn’t even show you the door, and you have to build it yourself. But if you keep waiting for the doors to be opened for you… I think you’ll have a hard time finding single happiness, let alone that double portion.‚Äù

6. Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell

‚ÄúIt‚Äôs just… everything. There are too many people. And I don‚Äôt fit in. I don‚Äôt know how to be. Nothing that I‚Äôm good at is the sort of thing that matters there. Being smart doesn’t matter‚Äîand being good with words. And when those things do matter, it‚Äôs only because people want something from me. Not because they want me.‚Äù

7. Pride And Prejudice, Jane Austen

“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”

8. The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

“And so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

9. Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Truman Capote

¬†‚ÄúYou call yourself a free spirit, a ‘wild thing,’ and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.‚Äù

10. All The Bright Places, Jennifer Niven

“She is oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. The same elements that are inside the rest of us, but I can’t help thinking she’s more than that and she’s got other elements going on that no one’s ever heard of, ones that make her stand apart from everybody else. I feel this brief panic as I think, What would happen if one of those elements malfunctioned or just stopped working altogether? I make myself push this aside and concentrate on the feel of her skin until I no longer see molecules but Violet.”
