Ten Bookish Quotes

September 29, 2020

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another TTT! This meme is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl and this week's theme explores “Favorite Book Quotes”. Like Jana, I post a lot of quotes on my blog already, especially in my reviews, so I thought I'd focus more on the bookish quotes that are hanging up on my walls.

“Reader's Bill of Rights

1. The right to not read

2. The right to skip pages

3. The right to not finish

4. The right to reread

5. The right to read anything

6. The right to escapism

7. The right to read anywhere

8. The right to browse

9. The right to read out loud

Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”

    1. Yup. When I found it online one day, I had to have it enlarged and printed for my wall. It's awesome!

  8. I love the Reader's Bill of Rights! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  9. Great list! I really like that Bob Marley quote.

  10. I've come across the Maya Angelou and MLK quotes before and love them as well. The Haile Selassi quote makes me think of one by Jennifer Donnelly from Revolution: “One expects decent people to stand up for the good of all. Decent people shut their doors and hide behind them as decent people do. Massacres could never happen if it weren't for decent people.”

  11. I love The Readers Bill of Rights! The Hemingway one too, and the Marley one made me smile. :)

  12. I love this! Especially "“Men understand direct communication. It's bitches who speak in code.”!!

  13. Oof that Maya Angelou quote is SUCH a good one that I think regularly , and it is just so so true.

  14. That is such a wonderful Maya Angelou quote—but then, really, what did she ever write that WASN'T powerful?

  15. Beautiful quotes! And I've never seen The Reader's Bill of RIghts. I love it!
