Top Ten Tuesday: Inspirational Bookish Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, go check her website out! Each week we’re given a topic to explore in our entries.

Most books have at least one sentence that stays in your mind forever. Here are the top 10 cool quotes from books I can think of, no particular order.


“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”

  1. I haven’t read any of these books yet! Although I keep saying that I need to read something from Maggie Stiefvater. I think one of her books is on my summer TBR? I don’t remember, I used a random number generator for it because I say that about a ton of authors and it’s so hard to choose!
