Quotes From My Favorite Books to Read on a Rainy Day in Gettysburg!

1. Water for Elephants

“Although there are times I’d give anything to have her back, I’m glad she went first. Losing her was like being cleft down the middle. It was the moment it all ended for me, and I wouldn’t have wanted her to go through that. Being the survivor stinks.”

2. The Last Song

“They promised patience when it was easy to be impatient, candor when it was easier to lie, and in their own ways, each recognized tha fact that real commitment could be proven only through the passage of time.”

3. True Believer

“Women want the fairy tale. Not all women, of course, but most women grow up dreaming about the kind of man who would risk everything for them, even knowing they might get hurt.”

4. The Notebook

“I am nothing special of this I am sure. I am just a common man with common thoughts. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, that has always been enough.”

5. A Walk to Remember

“Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he’d fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town’s Baptist minister.”

6. Twilight

“About three things I was absolutely positive.  First, Edward was a vampire.  Second, there was a part of him–and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.  And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him”

7. New Moon

“I knew we were both  in mortal danger.  Still, in that instant, I felt well.  Whole.  I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again.  My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin.  It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect-not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place.”

8. Eclipse

“In the dead silence, all the details suddenly fell into place for me with a burst of intuition. Something Edward didn’t want me to know. Something that Jacob wouldn’t have kept from me. Something that had the Cullens and the wolves both in the woods, moving in hazardous proximity to each other….Something I’d been waiting for anyway.  Something I knew would happen again, as much as I might with it never would.   It was never going to end, was it?” 

9. Breaking Dawn

“Don’t be afraid,” I murmured.  We belong together.  I was abruptly overwhelmed by the truth of my own words.  This moment was so perfect, so right, there was no way to doubt it.  His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him…It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire.  Forever, he agreed.”

10. The Lucky One

“She was struck by the simple truth that sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people…”
