Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Quotes I've Highlighted Recently

I am a quote collector. I always find myself connecting to a a small passage or quote within whatever I'm reading, but I'm not very organized with the way that I keep them or mark them, so this post has been a little difficult to put together. Plus, most of the books I have read lately are at my parents house and I am currently writing this at my apartment, so I may have to do another version of this soon.

1. "The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!"
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen 

2. "There's glory and honor in being chosen, but there's not much room for free will."
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

3.  "It's like being in love, discovering your best friend"
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein 

4. "There is some awe mixed with the joy of our surprise, when this poet, who lived in some past world, two or three hundred years ago, says that which lies close to my own soul, that which I also had wellnigh thought and said."
The American Scholar by Ralph Waldo Emerson 

5. Every day you fill him up with soul-stuff, like a pitcher.
Lesbos by Sylvia Plath from Ariel and Other Poems 

6. "Out of the ash
 I rise with my red hair
And I eat men like air. 
Lady Lady Lazarus by Sylvia Plath, found in Ariel and Other Poems

7.  "The Sky is everywhere, it begins at your feet."
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson 

8. "To name her is to sink her" he told me. That which we name takes greater weight than the sea it displaces. Ask any shipwreck" 
Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman
1 A.M. Post Inspired by this quote 

9. "My words are unerring tools of destruction, and I’ve come 
unequipped with the ability to disarm them." 
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

10. "Gansey had once told Adam that he was afraid most people didn't know how to handle Ronan. What he meant by this was that he was worried that one day someone would fall on Ronan and cut themselves."
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
