In this post I made a list of my favorite quotes from books. I can relate to them and some make me smile. I hope they inspire you to. Which one is your favorite?

because you are what you eat
and I want to be beautiful.”
― C.C. Hunter

“We accept the love we think we deserve.”

“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.”

― Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything

“Life is the tragedy,' she said bitterly. 'You know how they categorize Shakespeare's plays, right? If it ends with a wedding, it's a comedy. And if it ends with a funeral, it's a tragedy. So we're all living tragedies, because we all end the same way, and it isn't with a goddamn wedding.”
― Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything

“And I realized that there's a big difference between deciding to leave and knowing where to go.”

“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

“Is standing by the window muttering about blood something he does all the time?" asked Simon.
"No," Jace said. "Sometimes he sits on the couch and does it.”
― Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes
