Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday asked us to list our Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books. I have to admit that I could only come up with eight; oftentimes I like quotes because of what they mean in the context of the specific book, and not so much because they’re inspirational to me as a person. But these quotes are all ones that definitely fall into the latter category, so even though I don’t have ten of them, I have enough to share this week. Here we go!
