Q: Activity: Favorite Literary Quote

 

Here are a few of my favorite literary quotes:
“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
 
“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
 
“Books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life.”
Christopher Paolini, Eragon
 
“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
 
“Harry - you're a great wizard, you know."
"I'm not as good as you," said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let go of him.
"Me!" said Hermione. "Books! And cleverness! There are more important things - friendship and bravery and - oh Harry - be careful!”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
 
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone    
 
“Often the greatest act of courage is admitting that one has made a mistake...Follow your hearts. Protect one another, trust one another, because, at the end of the day, all of these people want something from you, or want you to do something for them, or be something that you are not. Your own responsibility is to one another.”
Michael Scott, The Necromancer
 
“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”
C.S. Lewis
 
“We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.”
Veronica Roth, Divergent
 
“Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.”
Veronica Roth, Divergent
 
“I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now and live in it forever.”
Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire    
 
“We had to save you because you're the mockingjay, Katniss," says Plutarch. "While you live, the revolution lives.”
Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire
 
“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

  7. I def need books to keep my mind sharp, lol. And not just that but to entertain me. :) All the quotes you've chosen are excellent. My daughter also read The Hunger Games trilogy, and we like to go around saying "May the odds be ever in your favor." Haha! I wish a lot that certain moments would freeze so I could have them forever. Great quotes!
