Favorite Quotes from Books #Booklovers

Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews.

Today's topic: My Favorite Quotes from Books

Here are a few. You can read the rest that I have listed on Goodreads.

"What I lack in expertise I make up for in desperation and tenacity, because I only get paid when catch someone." ~Janet Evanovich, Turbo Twenty-Three

"If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again." ~Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

"I will not let you go into the unknown alone." ~Bram Stoker, Dracula

"This is true love - you think this happens every day?" ~Westley from William Goldman's, The Princess Bride

"I have found for the first time what I can truly love - I have found you. You are my sympathy - my better self - my good angel - I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely; a fervant, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you - and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one." ~Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

"Let us never underestimate the power of a well-written letter." ~Jane Austen, Persuasion

"Do not give way to useless alarm; though it is right to be prepared for the worst, there is no occasion to look on it as certain." ~Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

"I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine. I can hardly write. I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. Too good, too excellent creature! You do us justice, indeed. You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in F.W.

I must go, uncertain of my fate; but I shall return hither, or follow your party, as soon as possible. A word, a look, will be enough to decide whether I enter your father's house this evening or never." ~Jane Austen, Persuasion

And because it's my blog and I can, here's one of my favorite quotes from my own books...

"I was not born a werewolf. I was not bitten, at least, not that I can remember. I am cursed. There, I've said it. You may now run to fetch the masses. You cannot allow such a creature to exist among women and children and innocent men. Stock up those silver bullets and do your worst." ~The Witch and the Wolf

Happy Reading!
