This week's question is: Share your favorite literary quote!

MY ANSWER: Oh this one's harder than I thought! There have been many quotes in books that made me lol or swoon or were just very thought provoking, but I can never remember them. I don't tend to write them down, which I probably show from now on. This is one that I liked that I have on a t-shirt since it rings true:

"I cannot sleep unless I am surrounded by books." ~Borges

And this, while not literary, is from Walt Disney and you all know how much I love Disney:

"All dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them." ~Walt Disney

And another not literary but based on a book quote is:

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." ~Inigo Montoya (Couldn't resist!)

And another movie quote, since I'm on a role:

"You're going to need a bigger boat." ~Brody (Jaws)

  4. Disney is always so inspirational, isn't he? But I couldn't agree more with his quote (that's probably why I like it so much!) I also really like that Inigo Montoya one, too! I find it very memorable! Thanks for sharing your quotes!(:

  30. Remember, this whole thing started with a mouse! I LOVE Disney quotes. I did a paper on him one time and he fascinates me. Great quotes! Thank you so much for stopping by my FF. Old follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  31. They might not all be literary, but they're still very awesome. I'm like the first quote though,... seriously, if I didn't have all of those books in my room scattered about all over and feeling almost every available space I probably would feel as if I was in a haunted room, lol.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier hun. Old follower as well. :)

  32. Love your quotes. Mine weren't 'literary' either but they are a reflection of what I read. Thanks for stopping by earlier. Old follower....

  33. I love the Walt Disney quote, thanks for sharing! Btw I absolutely adore your blog header design...so cute!

    Have a great weekend!

  34. HAha, loved your quotes!
    Hope you'll have a great Sunday :)

  35. I was thinking the same thing about writing quotes down - I've come across some great ones while reading. For the first one, I always sleep with books next to me. I take the book I'm currently reading with me everywhere I go, even if I know I won't have time to actually read any of it. :D Just a quirk of mine, haha. Love all your quotes, and my husband says that quote from The Princess Bride a lot, lol.
