Feature and Follow Friday #3
It's time for another Feature and Follow Friday post, which is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read! This week's question is about literary quotes, which I can never remember off the top of my head - so I'm turning to my trusty friend Goodreads for help! So here are some of my favourites...
Harry Potter quotes
'It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.'
'Of course it's happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?'
'It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.'
Infernal Devices/ Mortal Instruments quotes
“Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
..."At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting.”
'One must always be careful of books,' said Tessa, 'and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.'
“Don't touch any of my weapons without my permission."
"Well, there goes my plan for selling them all on eBay," Clary muttered.
"Selling them on what?"
Clary smiled blandly at him. "A mythical place of great magical power.”
And here's one from Skulduggery Pleasant, because Derek Landy is hilarious
'Doors are for people with no imagination.'
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy also never fails when it comes to hilarious quotes...
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
“This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.”
“Ford... you're turning into a penguin. Stop it.”
“The Answer to the Great Question... Of Life, the Universe and Everything... Is... Forty-two,' said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.”
