    "I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun."
    - Fitzwilliam Darcy; Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen.
    ^ Currently one of my all time favourite books. Got to love A Level Literature.

    One of my favorite quotes of all time came from a poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley: "I am the daughter of Earth and Water, and the nursling of the Sky; I pass through the pores of the oceans and shores, I change but I cannot die." ~ The Cloud

    another is from the graphic novel Watchmen: Never compromise... not even in the face of Armageddon

    From Looking for Alaska by John Green:
    -“I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.”

    And some quotes from Harry Potter:
    -"SHE KILLED SIRIUS! SHE KILLED HIM -- I'LL KILL HER!"
    -"There's no need to call me sir Professor."
    -"Do you think I give a -- I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO SAY!" Harry roared.
    -"I'm going to Hagrid's, I've got a good feeling about going to Hagrid's."

    And last but certainly not least, Lord of the Rings:
    -"There's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo........and it's worth fighting for!"
    -"It's your Sam, don't you know your Sam?"
    -"Don't go where I can't follow."

    That was long.

    You have been the last dream of my soul.

    and also

    It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

    The child, who was nearest to him, told them afterwards, and told her grandchildren when she was a handsome old lady, that she heard him say, "A life you love."

    all from A tale of two cities by Charles Dickens

    I'll do my top five, which just so happen to be by the same author lmao.

    “If I die, I will wait for you, do you understand? No matter how long. I will watch from beyond to make sure you live every year you have to its fullest, and then we’ll have so much to talk about when I see you again…" Bone in a deleted scene from "At Grave's End" by Jeaniene Frost

    “We are not helpless...Many times in our lives we’ve been powerless, but not this night. Right now we have the power to choose the manner in which we die. If you have been a master of nothing else in all your days, you are now a master of this moment. And I for one am going to give such an answer to this insult that others will dearly regret not being by my side to see it!”- Bones in "At Grave's End" by Jeaniene Frost

    “There is only one way to fight, and that's dirty. Clean gentlemanly fighting will get you nowhere but dead, and fast. Take every cheap shot, every low blow, absolutely kick people when they're down, and maybe you'll be the one who walks away." Bones in "Halfway to the Grave" by Jeaniene Frost

    “I'm saying that I'm a moody, insecure, narrow-minded, jealous, borderline homicidal bitch, and I want you to promise me that you're okay with that, because it's who I am, and you're what I need.”- Cat from "Halfway to the Grave" by Jeaniene Frost

    “I’m in, Cat. I’d never leave you. Especially when you’ve got death breathing down your neck.”
    “Very funny,” I retorted, since Bones was inches from my throat” - Tate and Cat from "One Foot in the Grave" by Jeaniene Frost

    Also the two quotes that are in my signature.

    "Never forget who you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you." - A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin

    No, it's not fair, but what makes earth feel like Hell is our expectation that it should feel like Heaven - Damned by Chuck Palahniuk.

    There are so many in the Chaos Walking trilogy, but I think I'll just stick to quotes from Monsters Of Men.

    “To say you have no choice is to relieve yourself of responsibility.”
    - Not sure who said this.

    “It's not how we fall. It's how we get back up again.”
    - Todd Hewitt, I think.

    “Do we hate paradise so much we need to make sure it becomes a trash heap?”
    - The Mayor, I think (could be wrong).

    The Mayor: “You're never more alive than in battle."
    Todd: "Never more dead after," I say.

    "This is a valley of ashes- a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens; where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and, finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air."

    -The Great Gatsby, F.Scott Fitzgerald

    I studied this book for my A-Level English class and this quote just stuck with me throughout the entire thing.

    From Sherrilyn Kenyon:

    He sah te, akram justia (which translates to "all hail the queen's justice")

    "Even the devil may cry when he looks around hell and realizes that he's there alone" - from Devil May Cry

    “I can’t believe you didn’t know it! Man, what kind of god are you? I never knew stupidity has a divine representative. Guess I was wrong, huh?” - from Dream Warrior

    ---

    "We are only what we allow ourselves to be. If there is no permission, there is no pursuit. The only hell I recognize is the one we build with our own two hands, and that is a job even a slothful person can handle." - Corey Taylor, from his autobio

    ---
    Pretty much everything from 'Life of Pi' and from Chuck Palahniuk.
