Top Ten Tuesday – Memorable Things Characters Have Said

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and it is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Memorable Things Characters Have Said. Here’s my list:

1. “I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.” – Lila Bard, A Darker Shade of Magic

2. “I remember you.” – Henry, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

3. “One should never save cake for later when it can be eaten now.” – Princess Winter, Winter

4. “An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.” – Mr. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice

5. “Reader, I married him.” – Jane Eyre, Jane Eyre

6. “I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” – Jane Eyre, Jane Eyre

7. “Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear; The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.” – Eduard, The Princess Diaries

8. “One must always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” – Tessa, Clockwork Angel

9. “Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.” – Will, Clockwork Princess

10. “It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them.” – Will, Clockwork Prince
