  • ? What's your favorite quotes from the books? ?

    Do you have any favorite quotes or passages from your favorite books that deeply rooted in your soul? ?Something that you are ready to re-read and re-read to not forget, or something that you really liked, but you don't know why?
    It may be some short quote or whole paragraph ?

    For example, I have something, from the recent. This is from Ray Bradbury:

    ?) BANSHEE
    She had a face of snow, cut from that white cool marble that makes the finest Irish women; a long swan neck, a generous if quivering mouth, and eyes a soft and luminous green. So beautiful were those eyes, and her profile against the blown tree branches, that something in me turned, agonized, and died. I felt that killing wrench men feel when beauty passes and will not pass again. You want to cry out: Stay. I love you. But you do not speak. And the summer walks away in her flesh, never to return.

    Ray Bradbury, "The Toynbee Convector", from the story "Banshee"

    ?) OCTOBER

        Death will come with your eyes
        this death that accompanies us
        from morning till night, sleepless,
        deaf, like an old regret
        or a stupid vice. Your eyes
        will be a useless word,
        a muted cry, a silence.
        As you see them each morning
        when alone you lean over
        the mirror. O cherished hope,
        that day we too shall know
        that you are life and nothing.

        For everyone death has a look.
        Death will come with your eyes.
        It will be like terminating a vice,
        as seen in the mirror
        a dead face re-emerging,
        like listening to closed lips.
        We'll go down the abyss in silence

        Cesare Pavese

              Twenty bridges from Tower to Kew
              Wanted to Know what the river Knew,
              For they were young and the Thames was old,
              And this is the tale that the River told.
              - Rudyard Kipling,"The River's Tale"

                      It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

                      Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

                      Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
                      Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Alkaban

                      I always channel my emotions into my work. That way I don't hurt anyone but myself -Cinna
                      The Hunger Games

                      A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment.
                      Pride and prejudice

                      Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.
                      Pride and prejudice

                      The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!
                      Sense and Sensibility

                      I'm rightly tired of the pain I hear and feel, boss. I'm tired of bein on the road, lonely as a robin in the rain. Not never havin no buddy to go on with or tell me where we's comin from or goin to or why. I'm tired of people bein ugly to each other. It feels like pieces of glass in my head. I'm tired of all the times I've wanted to help and couldn't. I'm tired of bein in the dark. Mostly it's the pain. There's too much. If I could end it, I would. But I can't.
                      The Green Mile

                      I think that's what people most always do with the stuff they can't make out - just forget it.

                              "There is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is only the comparison of one state with another. Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of feeling ultimate bliss. It is necessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.....the sum of all human wisdom will be contained in these two words: Wait and Hope."

                              Alexandre Dumas (The Count of Monte Cristo)
