Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

I don't actually do "inspiring" normally but instead I tend to do "funny"  or "thought-provoking" but I'll try at inspiring. I'm also really bad at keeping track of quotes I like, so if there's a good one missing that I should have let me know!

  1. "I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then."- Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  2. "All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost."- The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  3. "I will not say, do not weep, for not all tears are an evil."- The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  4. "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."- The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  5. "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."- The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  6. "Deserves it! I dare say he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."- The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  7. "Deeds will not be less valiant because they are upraised."- The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
  8. "My advice is, never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time."- David Copperfield 
  9. "The person, be it gentlemen or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel must be intolerably stupid."- Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
  10. "Self-love is the greatest enemy to true Christian love, and pride is the fountain of self-love. He whose sins are covered by God's free love cannot think it hard to spread the garment of his love over his brother's sins. Humility makes a man compare himself with the best that he me may find how bad he himself is, but pride measures by the worst, that it may hide a man from his own imperfections."- Christian Love by Hugh Binning
You may think I have too many J.R.R. Tolkien quotes but you are wrong! I don't have enough! ;)

  1. Well, I had no idea you could find so many great quotes from Tolkien, but I should have known better. Actually, I've only read The Hobbit. I haven't cracked open the other three, yet.

    Love that last quote, too!

  3. lol sounds like we had the same issue this week: I can drop a ton of funny quotes, but inspiring was a little harder to determine/list, lol. Yay for all the LOTR quotes! And the quote from Northanger Abbey is excellent too ;)
