Favourite Quotes from Literature

spring-flowers-wallpaperflower-wallpaper-background-hd-desktop-widescreenFor my book club I (Clare) had to find some special literary quotes. Huh! Yes that is how I felt too. Well anyway I went searching on the internet and found a few sites that had collections of quotes (organized a zillion different ways – authors, themes …). I know this was cheating (sort of) but the quotes I picked were from authors and books I have read. Here they are:

·      Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. Emily Bronte (Wuthering Heights)

·      There is a sense in which we are all each other’s consequences. Wallace Stegner

·      For poems are like rainbows: they escape you quickly. Langston Hughes

·      It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that. J. K. Rowling

·      Let the wild rumpus start. Maurice Sendak

·      Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering. Nicole Krause (The History of Love)
