LITERATURE


|| 10 of the most beautiful lines in literature ||

Every year I like to find at least one book that I can read over & over. In the past it has been The Harry Potter series, some books from the genius J.R.Tolkien, particularly The Hobbit, even a little Game of Thrones borrowed from my Pappa. Over the past year blogging has helped me grow as a writer, communicating and connecting with others. This blog has adapted with me, becoming a stronger creative platform for myself, full of things that I am inspired by; Starting with the written word of artists, so here are my 10 favourite lines in literature...


“How wild it was, to let it be.”
—Cheryl Strayed, Wild

“Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.”
—Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

“In our village, folks say God crumbles up the old moon into stars.”
—Alexander Solzhenitsyn, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

“It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.”
—J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

"And the rest is rust and stardust"
-Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

“May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.” 
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit


“Every flight begins with a fall.” 
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones


“I hope she'll be a fool -- that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” 
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”

- George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

"If it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it." 

-Erada
