*Day 17 – Favourite quote(s) from your favourite book(s)*

I've been putting this one off for quite some time, thinking that I'll have to somehow get out all my favourite books and compile all my favourite quotes. I just realised that that isn't possible! It would take about 12479587376 years for me to do that. So why even bother trying? Instead I'm going to just show you a few of my favourite quotes - ones that stopped me in my tracks and had me writing them down. Or ones that just made me laugh hysterically.
Seeing as you know my favourite writers and my favourite books it won't be hard to guess that my other favourite quotes stem from those.

1. I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn't exist anymore.

2. Life would be a lot easier if conversations were rewindable or erasable, like videos. Or if you could instruct people to disregard what you just said, like in a courtroom.

3. If you fall down those stairs and break both your legs, don't come running to me!

4. Here is another marvy glimpse into the gothic basement that I call my mind.

5. "... maybe he overreacted a bit."
"A bit? That's like Hitler saying, 'Oooh, I just meant to go for a little walk, but then I accidentally invaded Poland.'"

6. Your soul shines through even if you haven't got mascara on.

7. Sometimes people are beautiful. 
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.

8. If only she could be so oblivious again, to feel such love without knowing it, mistaking it for laughter.

9. What you see and what your hear depends a great deal on where you're standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are.

10. Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.

11. Everyone had made him so welcome and had captivated him with their gentle madness.

12. There was plenty of green light left in that orange light, Em.

Respectively: Sophie Kinsella (Shopaholic Series), Louise Rennison (Georgia Nicolson series), Markus Zusak (The Book Thief), C.S Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia), Charlotte Bronte (Jane Eyre), Colin Thompson (Pepper Dreams), Jaclyn Moriarty (Ashbury High series).
