Favourite Book Quotes | #1


I love myself a good quote, and one of the best things about having a kindle is the ability to be able to highlight certain passages from your books so they are stored for later perusal. I enjoy looking back at the things that I have highlighted and remembering what it meant to me at the time. The quotes that I highlight aren't necessarily profound, as much as I may have just found them funny, but I highlight words that just speak to me in one way or another. 

These are a few quotes from fiction books I have read within the last year. I may create another quotes post with quotes that I love from my personal development books at a later date, which speak to me in a completely different way. For now, enjoy, what are some of your favourite quotes?

You don't have to be an academic. You don't have to be anything. Don't force it. Feel your way, and don't stop feeling your way until something fits. Maybe nothing will.

The Humans - Matt Haig
