BBH: Quote Your Favourite Author

So, this week's topic was supposed to be quote your favourite author but I'm going a little rogue and sharing a collection of beloved book quotes because I don't really have a favourite author and there are too many beloved quotes to limit the post like that! 😀

The majority of these quotes are from books I've read but there are a couple that I've randomly stumbled across and adored so had to include.

Let me know your favourite in the comments!
(From my list or your own.)


“Deadlines just aren't real to me until I'm staring one in the face.”
Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

“The easiest lies to tell are the ones you want to be true.”
 White Cat by Holly Black

“I'm starting to understand that you can always make time for the things that matter.”
Mariana Zapata, The Wall of Winnipeg and Me

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” 
Dr. Seuss

“The worst wounds, the deadliest of them, aren't the ones people see on the outside. They're the ones that make us bleed internally.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Infamous

“Sometimes people put up walls, not only to keep people out, but also to see who cares enough to tear them down.”
Leisa Rayven, Bad Romeo

“Loss can be like chains holding you in place or a fire pushing you onward. We each choose every day what it will be to us.”
Annette Marie, Unleash the Storm

“Sometimes things change, because there just isn’t any way for them to stay the same.”
Jay Crownover, Jet

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
 J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“A broken heart is still a beating one.”
 Penelope Ward, Stepbrother Dearest

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” 
Dr. Seuss

“People are more difficult to work with than machines. And when you break a person, he can't be fixed.”
 Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

“Love isn’t perfect. It’s hard work and sometimes it’s more effort to be in love than it is to just run away. If you keep looking for perfect, the real thing is going to pass right by you.”
Jay Crownover, Jet

“Life gives us choices. You either grab on with both hands and just go for it, or you sit on the sidelines.”
Christine Feehan, Night Game

“There are a million ways to lose someone you love.”
Tammara Webber, Good For You

“Make no apologies for surviving.”
 Hailey Edwards, How to Save an Undead Life

“You don’t get to live your dreams by waiting around for someone to hand them to you.”
Mariana Zapata, Kulti

“It's easy to look at people and make quick judgements about them, their present and their past, but you'd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it's lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“It was worth a shot, and as the saying around here goes, you miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take.”
Annette Marie, Three Mages and a Margarita

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.” 
Dr. Seuss

“Sometimes the thing we fear more than anything, is really what our soul craves the most.”
Penelope Ward, RoomHate

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” 
― Oscar Wilde

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 
― Maya Angelou

And to finish off, a particularly relevant feeling quote!

“All alone! Whether you like it or not, alone is something you'll be quite a lot!” 
Dr. Seuss


  1. I've always been partial to the quote you have here from JK Rowling. But, I've never read the Oscar Wilde one before and I love it!

    1. Oscar Wilde has a lot of cool quotes.

  2. I don't care what everyone has to say, Dr. Seuss put out so many fantastic quotes.

    1. I could have done an entire post of Dr Seuss quotes. I love him!

  3. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon and Christine Feehan. Acheron and Styx were two of my all time favorite books.

    1. Those two books absolutely broke my heart!

  4. Oh, I do love Oscar Wilde, he was the master of the witty quip!

    1. He's very good. My husband got me a miniature book of Oscar Wilde quotes as a stocking filler one Christmas and I adored them!

  5. These are great quotes, Nicci. I especially like the two by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I've been feeling a lot like that second one as of late.

    1. I hear you... It's been a rough few months! Hang in there and it'll get better.

  6. These are some amazing quotes! Love the Mariana Zapata and Holly Black quotes! :)

    1. I loved the Holly Black one too. It was one I stumbled across by accident and it struck a chord.
