Top Ten Tuesday: Five Fictional Favorites, Ten Great Quotes


One of the many pleasures of reading is coming across great quotes. I love skillfully-crafted paragraphs, vividly-described passages, and cleverly-worded dialogue. They thrill me, truly, but I'm not good at remembering them or writing them down, which makes TTT topics like today's—Top Ten Memorable Things Book Characters Have Said—a bit difficult. So, I apologize in advance because the quotes I'm sharing today are very well-known and most of them will probably appear on other people's lists. Also, I had to Google all of them so if they're incorrect, you know who to blame!

Top Ten Memorable Things Five of My Favorite Book Characters Have Said

Atticus Finch
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee


“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

“I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks.”


Jo March
Little Women series by Louisa May Alcott


“I keep turning over new leaves, and spoiling them, as I used to spoil my copybooks; and I make so many beginnings there never will be an end.”

“I want to do something splendid before I go into my castle--something heroic, or wonderful--that won't be forgotten after I'm dead. I don't know what, but I'm on the watch for it, and mean to astonish you all, some day. I think I shall write books, and get rich and famous; that would suit me, so that is my favorite dream.”

Albus Dumbledore
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling



"But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."

"It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

Anne Shirley
Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery


“Life is worth living as long as there's a laugh in it.”

“The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and storytellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.”

Hermione Granger
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling


"Books! And cleverness! There are more important things—friendship and bravery."


There you go, ten quotes I love by five of my favorite fictional people. What are your favorites? Who did you choose to highlight today? I'd truly love to know. Leave me a comment on this post and I will gladly return the favor on your blog.
