Top Ten Tuesday # 4

Top ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme by Broke and the Bookish

Revisited TTT.
Top Ten favourite book quotes

No doubt I will have missed some of my favourite quotes from books on here because they're so long or there are  just too many but here it goes...

1.  'Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry'- Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel.

2. 'Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favour'- Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games.

3. 'I solemnly swear that I am up to no good'- J.K Rowling, The Prisoner of Azkaban.

4. 'It is a far, far better thing that I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go on to that I have ever known.'- Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities.

5. 'Two rights don't equal a left'- Roald Dahl, The BFG.

6. 'My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!'- William Goldman, The Princess Bride.

7. 'I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.'- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.

8. 'True love is usually the most inconvenient kind.'- Kiera Cass, The Selection.

9. 'Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.'
- J.R.R Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings series.

10. 'Life, although it may be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.'- Mary Shelly, Frankenstein.
