Top Ten Tuesday (6) The one with Penises, Flour and Love

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by  The Broke and The Bookish . At this link you can find all past and future TTT.
This is my first Top Ten Tuesday since November guys! YAY!! About this one however, being the kind of reader who gets entranced by what I read, I don't always remember my favorite quotes. So here are 10 memorable quotes. Not all YA and some are from the same book! 

1. “I don't know many rules to live by,' he'd said. 'But here's one. It's simple. Don't put anything unnecessary into yourself. No poisons or chemicals, no fumes or smoke or alcohol, no sharp objects, no inessential needles--drug or tattoo--and...no inessential penises either.'

'Inessential penises?' Karou had repeated, delighted with the phrase in spite of her grief. 'Is there any such thing as an essential one?'

'When an essential one comes along, you'll know,' he'd replied.” 
― Laini TaylorDaughter of Smoke and Bone
I remember how much I laughed at this part of DoSaB. I think this is one that I will always love.

2. “Oh, Hell. Must. Mate. Immediately.” 
― Laini TaylorDaughter of Smoke and Bone
What can I say. Laini Taylor is a genius!

3. “You nicked-named my daughter after the Lock Ness Monster!” 
― Stephenie MeyerBreaking Dawn
All I have to say is: BAHAHAHAHA!

4. “Yes, and I’m sure the arena will be full of bags of flour for me to chuck at people.” 
― Suzanne CollinsThe Hunger Games
Way to be snarky Peeta. Who doesn't love sarcasm in the light of a battle to the death?

5. “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” 
― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist
Not all memorable quotes are funny. So are wise words to live by.

6. “One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.” 
― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist
Now, this one became a personal motto of mine.

7. “I've been screaming for years and no one has ever heard me.” 
― Tahereh MafiShatter Me
I have felt like this. A lot of Shatter me resonated through me.

8. “Find me a cure for these tears, I'd really like to exhale for the first time in my life.” 
― Tahereh MafiShatter Me
See above

9. “I'll tell you something about true love. There's no science to it. It's as natural as the sky.” 
― Lauren DeStefanoWither
True... Isn't it?

10. “If you were half as funny as you think you are, you'd be twice as funny as you are now.” 
― Cassandra ClareCity of Bones
Now I liked this one because I actually tried to calculate funny. Made me think! Hahaha!

There, that's 10 of my favorite quotes! Link me yours in the comments section!

I laughed out loud at the "inessential penis" comment. So funny. That book is going on my TBR list!

Keri said...

Yes, I love The Hunger Games quote. You never know with the Games. There could have been bags of flour!
