Have you ever read a passage in a book and had it resonate with you so deeply that you cant help but remember it. Whether its a life lesson, something profound or simply something so well written you just have to stop and take it in. This weeks Top Ten Tuesday is all about inspirations and thought provoking book quotes, and I’m hoping to share some of my favourites with you.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl and she creates such fan content. You should definitely give it a look.

“If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so fundamentally human that it’s found in every culture without exception. Yes, there are assholes who just don’t care, but they’re massively outnumbered by the people who do.” – Andy Weir, The Martian
“That’s what being free means – not the right to do whatever you want, but the right to take a stand and say what you’ll die for.” – Sebastien De Castell, Traitor’s Blade
“Somehow, we’ll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be and whom we need to be. But for now, we simply have to be satisfied with who we are.” – Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages
