Remember last week when we talked about the Blogger Book Drive? Well, I'm excited to announce that we are 20% to our goal! That's super exciting since we still have the rest of the month to reach the rest of the goal. This week, we're bringing you our top book quotes and a giveaway! So, don't forget to read to the end of the post so you can enter the giveaway!
Today, I'm bringing you my top five book quotes. Let's be honest - it's not my top 5 - it's the first five that came to mind. There are so many great quotes out there that I had to limit myself or this post would have gotten out of control.
When I sat down to find my quotes for this post, I knew I wanted one from Gone with the Wind. Originally, I was planning on using "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" but then I stumbled across this quote instead. It's so true that how you handle a hardship shows who you are. If you want to see other great quotes, simply google "Gone with the Wind quotes" and you'll be amazed at how many famous quotes come from that book!
Pride and Prejudice is the book I often list as being my favorite. I had a hard time picking just one quote from this book. I chose this one because it spoke to me. As I read it, I realized that Jane Austen was sharing a great philosophy with us in this quote. Just think how different life would be if we chose only to remember the good and not the bad.
Dr. Seuss is one of the most quotable authors of all time. I could do an entire post of just his quotes. Oh wait - I've already done that here. I chose this one because I was always short and classified as "small" as a kid. It's important to remember that everyone matters...no matter their size, skin color, etc.
For some reasons, The Notebook kept standing out among books that I needed to quote. When I went looking for a quote, I realized why it stood out. At one point, I had a Pinterest board filled with quotes and several were from The Notebook. I picked this one because it is something that I often have a hard time remembering. I find it so hard to remember to look out for yourself - especially when it comes to happiness.
This quote was one of my favorites when we were doing long distance. Now that we continue to face deployment after deployment, the quote has taken on a whole new meaning. Saying goodbye is hard but sometimes you have to remember that you're lucky to even have something to say goodbye to. I hate saying goodbye to my husband every few months but I'm happy that I have him in my life.
So, now that I'm slightly teary eyed from that last quote, let's get on to the fun stuff!
