Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list our top tens!

This week’s topic is “top ten seven inspiring quotes from books.” I revisited my favorite books and gathered quotes that made me think. They are incredibly profound. I decided not to write any commentary on why I chose these quotes because they speak for themselves.

Also, I really love the way this post ended up looking. (I am incredibly proud of it. :D)

  1. I really enjoy #3 — it’s unfortunately so true.

  2. OH A FRANKIE BANKS QUOTE. Oh man, I’m actually so annoyed I didn’t include one on my list. I heart that book so damn much

    1. This whole post is gorgeous!
    2. I haven’t read any of these books, but #2 and #3 really speak to me as a woman and as an artist. I’ll Give You The Sun has been on my radar for a while but I’m not certain if The Disreputable History is (but now it will be!)

    These are so beautiful! I think the Saving Francesca quote is definitely my favorite one, just because it’s such a wonderful way to describe something <3
