My Top Ten Quotes

This is probably one of the toughest posts to come up up with. It’s stupid, I swear, because I don’t even know how I can really come up with my top ten favourite quotes. I won’t give explanations; that will be like trying to write an entire book. Also, let’s get a few things straight; One, ALL Nicholas Sparks’ books have a million quotes I love and two, whenever I watch ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ I unintentionally find myself saying the characters’ next sentences even before that part starts. Every word that guy writes is quote-worthy and yes, I’ve watched the latter too many times because it has quotes to last someone a lifetime. So pardon me if I don’t mention them all over here. To make this easier for everyone, I’ll only mention the quotes that I can remember by heart.

  • Man Plans, God Laughs.

This statement is probably in every book in the thriller series by Harlan Coben. That wasn’t number one in the top ten list. Naw…It was just an appetizer.

Spoiler Alert : There’s a lot of mushiness in some of these stuff because am that kind of person.

  • Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be sixteen when they turn seventeen. I know these will all be stories some day, and our pictures will become old photographs. We all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. And you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.  ~ Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

If you haven’t watched ‘The perks of Being a Wallflower’ yet then you’re probably a. not a fan of Emma Watson, b. not a wallflower or c. you don’t know how to get really good drama movies.

  • Sweetheart, let me tell you something no teenager ever believes, but I guarantee you is the absolute truth. You fall in love more than once. It will happen again. It will be just as amazing and extraordinary as the first time and maybe just as painful. But it’ll happen again. I promise. But until then, be your own anchor. ~ Teen Wolf

Okay, am not going to cry right now. I’ll just start watching ‘Teen Wolf’ from the beginning and then go cry myself a river after it all ends.

  • I love her. I am so lucky to love her, Van Houten. You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes hers. ~ John Greene (The Fault In Our Stars)

Okay, Hazel Grace?

  • An object needn’t be large to have a great mass. That girl, as tiny as a violet; That girl drifting in the sky like the petals of a flower; draws me to her with a force greater than gravity. In a single moment I rolled toward her without rythme or reason, just as Newton’s apple did; with a thump. With a thump thump. My heart bounced from heavens to the earth in a dizzying pendular motion. Such was the moment I’d first fallen in love. ~ Goblin

Ayee! Talk physics to me. Wait, you really didn’t think I’d fail to mention a Korean film, right? Well, here’s another one…

  • I’m worried about you, actually. I don’t have all those different types of affection. Whether it’s friendship or love; it’s all the same to me. It’s all one thing. […] I told you to be prepared.~ Scarlet Heart Ryeo

At this point, I don’t think I can hold back the tears any longer.

  • It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him: and that , not because he’s handsome, Nelly, but because he’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same … ~ Emily Brontë (Wuthering Heights)

In another life, I’d be named Catherine, fall in love with a certain Heathcliff and forget my ego, pride and realism.

  • Being loved is not the same thing as loving. When you fall in love, it is discovering the ocean after years of puddle jumping. It is realizing you have hands. It is reaching for the tightrope when the crowds have all gone home. Do not spend time wondering if you are the type of woman men will hurt. If he leaves you with a car alarm heart, you learn to sing along. It is hard to stop loving the ocean. Even after it has left you gasping, salty. Forgive yourself for the decisions you have made, the ones you still call mistakes when you tuck them in at night. And know this: Know you are the type of woman who is searching for a place to call yours. Let the statues crumble. You have always been the place. ~ Sarah Kay
  • Because you aren’t just someone I loved back then. You were my best friend, my best self, and I can’t imagine giving that up again.” He hesitated searching for the right words. “You might not understand, but I gave you the best of me, and after you left, nothing was ever the same”. ~ Nicholas Sparks (The Best of Me)

  • I was feeling epic. ~ The Vampire Diaries

Only a few will understand. But for real though, I’m in tears right now. I had a million other quotes to use but in some way, these simple four words win.

  • There is a kingdom in me, and sometimes it is burning. Sometimes I let it. I promise never to hide this from you. That is my vow. I promise to be an open mouth. I promise to stay fractured. I promise to be imperfect. I promise to be the bravest broken window you’ve ever seen. ~ Caitlyn Siehl

I know I said 10…but let me just add a final one.
