I’m a collector of quotes. I jot them down everywhere. Sometimes I don’t even put where they’re from and that drives me crazy. But most of the quotes I collect come from books that I love. So here are a few that I’ve written down recently.
“Victors are just folk who were never satisfied with being vanquished” -Jay Kristoff, Empire of the Vampire
“Some people are born lucky. Some make their own.”-Jay Kristoff, Empire of the Vampire
“A life without books is a life not lived.” -Jay Kristoff, Empire of the Vampire
“There’s a whole world beneath the one most folk see around them, and there’s true witchery in it.” -Rachel Harrison, Cackle
“My eyes are sore from crying, my lungs are sore from coughing, my knees are sore from kneeling, and my heart is sore from believing. If you are sore and tired, then come into these woods and sleep.” -Shea Ernshaw, A History of Wild Places
So those are a few of my favorite quotes. What’s your favorite?
