Let's Share: Favorite Quotes from Books We've Read

Because of a scene in my current work-in-progress, I've been thinking today about some of my favorite quotes from books I've read.

Most of us have quotes that come to mind when certain movies are mentioned. Come on, admit it...if I say, "I'll have what she's having," you're gonna yell, "When Harry Met Sally!" Right? 

And then there's, "I see dead people." Come on, tell me you don't recognize that one!

Point is, sometimes a book or a movie reaches out and touches us with something unforgettable. Those are special moments, don't you think?

Let's have some fun. I'll share a few of my favorites, and then you can share yours. They do not have to be from the classics. They do not have to be from "famous" authors. They don't have to be breathtaking or profound. Just something that stood out to you when you read it, something you'll remember from that book. Books - not movies - that's the only parameter in this funfest. Although, some books have been made into movies. That's OK. But we want to hear about your reaction to things you read in a book.

Here we go. These are just a drop in the bucket. I could have gone on...and on...and on. But I want to hear your favorites too, so I limited myself to these few. If you all enjoy this, we can do it again another day.

"You want to be good for the ones you love, because you know that your time with them will end up being too short, no matter how long it is."  — From Stephen King’s Lisey’s Story
“I would rather die than stay away from you.”  — From Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight

“I envy the one who kissed you first.” From Marianne Evans’ Kassidy’s Crescendo

 "A man would be a fool to try to take care of you. But he’d still want to.” - From Tanya Stowe's Tender Touch

I could go on...and on...but I want to hear some of your favorites too. What are they?
