Topp 10 boksitater

The Broke and the Bookish har hver tirsdag en Top Ten-liste, en ukentlig topp 10-liste med et boklig tema. Denne uken er temaet Topp 10 boksitater.

Denne lista var ikke enkel, mye fordi jeg etter studietiden har hatt hukommelse som en døgnflue når det kommer til sitater. Det er som regel karakterene og handlingen som fester seg, men noen unntak er det jo. :)

Noen av sitatene ble valgt fordi de gav meg et lite hjertesukk, noen fordi de er så forferdelig romantiske, andre fordi de fikk meg til å smile.

01. "There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting."
~ Anne Shirley, Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery

02. “I've loved you ever since the day you broke your slate over my head.” 
~ Gilbert Blythe, Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery

03. "You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you."
~ Captain Frederick Wentworth, Persuasion, Jane Austen

04.  "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
~ Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, J.K. Rowling

05. "The car finally landed on its nose, collapsing like an accordion. But Pumpkin was still flying, shedding fears and insecurities like old skins, until she was distilled to a cool, creamy vapor. Pumpkin melted into the sky, and so she never came down."
~ The Grass Dancer, Susan Power

06. “Beauty--real everlasting beauty--lives not on our faces, but in our attitude and our actions. It lives in what we do for ourselves and for others.” 
~ Terra Cooper, North of Beautiful, Justina Chen Headley

07. "Langsomt klarte pappa å lirke klørne til Tassy ut av hodebunnen, og kom seg løs. Han blødde ganske mye. Like langsomt kom mamma seg ut av bilen, stirret på den døde hanen på panseret og juletreet under bilen. Så kikket de på hverandre, og skulle nok til å spørre hva det var som foregikk. Det slapp de å gjøre, for bestemor stakk hodet ut av garasjeporten og sa "God jul". Da besvimte pappa, og mamma satte seg inn i bilen igjen og begynte å dunke hodet mot rattet slik at det tutet og tutet i hornet.  

Nå hadde de i hvertfall sett at det var sant, det jeg sa, da jeg ringte til dem. Bestemor var kommet på julebesøk."
~ Elias, Nei vel da, Bjørn Ingvaldsen

08. “Oh it don't make no kind of sense. Big ol' ox like Grady won't sit next to a colored child. But he eats eggs - shot right outta chicken's ass!” 
~ Sipsey, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, Fannie Flagg

09. “Perhaps the unattached, the unwanted, the unloved, could grow to give love as lushly as anyone else.” 
~ Victoria Jones, The Language of Flowers, Vanessa Diffenbaugh

10. “See, now I don't know whether to be all 'Yay!' because you're empowered or sad because you're having delusional almost-sex with an imaginary boyfriend.” 
~ Beauty Queens, Libba Bray

    1. I love Captain Wentworth. Persuasion seems to be the overlooked Auten-novel, which really is shame since it's such a wonderful book.

  5. Så gøy! Elsker den fra Harry Potter. Er helt enig i at det er lettere å huske sitater. De er gøy og lese der og da, men glemmer alltid å merke meg dem til senere.

    1. Det hadde nok vært lettere å huske sitater hvis jeg bare kunne huske å skrive dem ned. ;)
