We have a new feature this week! It's a share. 

This week's share is: Share your favorite literary quote!


I am so often highlighting quotes in my Kindle that sometimes the pages look more yellow than white, but I love great quotes about basically any topic. Before I get into the great literary quotes, I need to give a nod to two quotes that I love that are just cultural quotes - the 'Insanity is...' quote by Albert Einstein and the 'I'm selfish...' quote by Marilyn Monroe.

Now, my favorite literary quote is:

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." ~ Albus Dumbledore

and to add another about literature:
“There is no surer foundation for a beautiful friendship than a mutual taste in literature.” 
~ P.G. Wodehouse


If you are a new follower, I prefer Bloglovin or Email please! 
Thank you :D

  1. The HP quote makes me tear up every time! I really identify with it since I'm guilty of either being stuck in the past or anxious about the future. I dream about the way I wish things were instead of living the way they are. And isn't the second quote so true as well? So dead on!

    Old follower and completely speechless I'm under your fave blogs! :D Thank you!!

  55. There are certain books and movies where I become so involved emotionally and mentally, I have to remind myself it isn't really happening to me. I can totally relate to you! :D

    ReplyDelete
  56. I've gotten to where I try not to think about the past at all unless it's to remind me of good times. I do have the same problem about being anxious about future problems, and I try to curb that as much as possible too. What I find myself doing most though is living in my other worlds through books and movies so much that I have to remember to come out of them sometimes and live my real life. Thank you so much for stopping by :D And welcome to my fav blogs!
