Top Ten Tuesday #35

ImageThis Week’s Theme: Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

Ready for LoTR galore? Because that’s what I’m expecting xD I don’t think any of these need explanations really. It’s either it’s clearly obvious why they’re a favourite (either a famous life or an beautifully written line or both) or because they mean a hell of a lot to me or both! xD

1. A Dance with Dragons – George. R.R. Martin

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.

2. Something Like An Autobiography – Akira Kurosawa

There is nothing that says more about its creator than the work itself.

3. The Hobbit –  J.R.R.Tolkien

4. The Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R.Tolkien

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

5. The Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R.Tolkien

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

6. The Final Empire – Brandon Sanderson

There’s always another secret.

7. Sourcery – Terry Pratchet

RARE, said Death.

9. A Song of Ice and Fire – George. R.R. Tolkien

Winter is coming.

10. The Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R.Tolkien

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

What do you think? Got any better ones?
