Top Ten Tuesday 4/30/19


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.   You can find each week’s topic on her site.


This week’s prompt is top ten inspirational or thought provoking book quotes.  I’m not sure if all these are from books or if they were said by someone, but I wanted to share them anyway.  I had such a hard time narrowing this one down to just ten.


These are in no order of any kind.


Can you understand?  Someone, somewhere, can you understand me a little, love me a little?  For all my despair, for all my ideals, for all that-I love life.  But it is hard, and I have so much-so very much to learn

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a ride!”

-Hunter S Thompson



There is always some madness in love.  But there is also some reason in madness.

-Friedrich Nietzsche



Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

Do any of these quotes speak to you?  What are some of your favorite quotes?
