Top Ten Tuesday: Inspirational Book Quotes

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Inspirational Book Quotes.  A few of these aren't from books, but I still decided to include them.  Here we go, in no particular order:

“Don't think or judge, just listen.” ― Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

“We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.” ― Veronica Roth, Divergent

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.” ― R.J. Palacio, Wonder

“For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.” ― Michelle Obama, Becoming

“Difficult" and "impossible" are cousins often mistaken for one another, with very little in common.” ― Scott Lynch, Red Seas Under Red Skies

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.” ― Robert Frost

“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” ― Thomas A. Edison

“What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?” ― John Green, An Abundance of Katherines
