Today’s prompt is inspirational and thought-provoking book quotes! Aside from the characters, quotes are probably my second favorite thing when it comes to book. I was easily impressed by clever or witty sayings, and of course, I fell head over heels when I found a quote that is heavier on the context and had an effect on my perspective towards certain topics. So, for today, I’m going to share my most recent favorite book quotes (and I also sneak short poetry) that hopefully can inspire you too. 🔖

I wonder — if nobody is listening to my voice, am I making any sound at all? Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

Di mana bumi dipijak, di situ langit dijunjung. Have you heard this before? It means where we plant our feet is where we must hold up the sky. We live and die by the rules of the land we live in. But this country belongs to all of us! We make our own sky, and we can hold it up together. The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf

We’re all different people all through our lives, but that’s okay, as long as you remember all the people you used to be. Here and Now and Then by Mike Chen

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Do you remember the song that was playing the night we met? No, but I remember every song I have heard since you left. Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav

I’ve wasted a lot of time in my life. I’ve thought too much about what people will say or what they’re gonna think. And sometimes it’s over silly things like going to the grocery store or going to the post office. But there have been times when I really stopped myself from doing something special. All because I was scared someone might look at me and decide I wasn’t good enough. But you don’t have to bother with that nonsense. I wasted all that time so you don’t have to. Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

All my life I’ve had a body worth commenting on and if living in my skin has taught me anything it’s that if it’s not your body, it’s not yours to comment on. Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

The second I tried to tell myself I wasn’t in love was the moment I realized I was. The Universe of Us by Lang Leav

Whenever I saw the sun, I reminded myself that I was looking at a star. One of over a hundred billion in our galaxy. A galaxy that was just one of billions of other galaxies in the observable universe. This helped me keep things in perspective. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

What about you? What’s your favorite book quote?
