Day 17: Favorite quote from your favorite book...
I had the best of intentions with this challenge. I wanted to complete it properly. But apparently I can't stop cheating. I couldn't pick a favorite male or female character and now I can't pick a favorite quote from my favorite book. The first problem being that I couldn't possibly pick just one book to call my favorite. Aside from my abnormal attraction to series, I have a favorite sci-fi, a favorite historical romance, a favorite epic fantasy... How do I pick one to draw a quote from? And my favorite quote ever might not be from my favorite book. And my favorite book may not have a really great quote. This is a big decision. The people that read this will judge what kind of person I may be by what quotes I choose. If I pick something misogynistic or vapid, what will people think?! Why do you do this to me, Book Challenge, why?!
So... here we go again with the cheating. Here are some of my favorite quotes from some of my favorite books.
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”
