Q is for Quotes

I have picked a few of my favorite book quotes to share with you!  See if you can guess them! :) 

1.  Many that live deserve death.  And some that die deserve life.  Can you give it to them?  Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.  For even the very wise cannot see all ends.

2.  Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve.

3.  As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.

4.  "Oh that won't do!" said ----.  "Books ought to have good endings.  How would this do: and they all settled down and lived happily ever after?"  "It will do well, if it ever comes to that," said ----.  "Ah!" said ---.  "And where will they live?  That's what I always wonder."

5.  "After all this time?"  "Always."

6.  "I might be in love with you."  He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though.” 

7.   "There could be love", Jonas whispered.


They aren't very hard - so hopefully you can answer them! :)

I wrote 554 words yesterday.  Not the most, but I had to write a difficult scene for my character.  I finished putting the nail in her heart and breaking it.  I do feel a bit mean towards her.  I will be giving her love back soon!  I would have written more, but a feverish night of sleep the night before didn't help and my all day migraine demanded I sleep.  Hopefully I will finish in the next few days! :)

  1. Let's see ... 1 & 4 were easy. Surprised I got 5 right (Told ya, Potter fan by media osmosis ^_^).

    And I recognised 6, the quote not where from, but I've no idea why ... excerpt, maybe.

    Some good quotes all the same.

  6. Awww, I love quotes - and quote guessing! Great choice, too. John Green is one of my favorite writers. When I read Looking for Alaska, I did something I hardly ever do during non-academic reading: marking important passages.

    Great post!!
