Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books 
(anything that inspires you, challenges you, makes you think, encourages you, etc.)

10. “Suddenly all those careful preparations disintegrated as predators far more dangerous than the walking dead proved what all wise killers already knew: that nothing was more dangerous than 
living men.”
- Jonathan Maberry, Fire & Ash

9. “I say, thirteen is too many dogs for good mental health. Five is pretty much the limit. More than five dogs and you forfeit your right to call yourself entirely sane.
Even if the dogs are small.”
- E. Lockhart, The Boyfriend List

8. “We accept the love we think we deserve.”
- Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

7. “Libraries were full of ideas–perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”
- Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass

6. “That's what life is, pretty much: full of holes and tangles and ways to get stuck. Uncomfortable and itchy. A present you never asked for, never wanted, never chose. A present you're supposed to be excited to wear, day after day, even when you'd rather stay in bed and do nothing.”
- Lauren Oliver, Vanishing Girls

5. “It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.”
- Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

4. “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads 
lives only one.”
- George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

3. “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
- J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

2. “Hope can be bruised and battered. It can be forced underground and even rendered 
unconscious, but hope cannot be killed.”
- Neal Shusterman, UnSouled

Och på första plats har jag mitt absoluta favoritcitat, som jag liksom levt efter sedan jag först hörde det för mer än 15 år sedan;

1. "To be nobody but yourself 
in a world which is doing its best day and night 
to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
- E.E. Cummings, A Poet's Advice
