HUGE thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions for quotes to use for my quote project! I’m planning on making it a reality this weekend! Hooray!
Wanted to share with you the quotes I’ve decided to use:
“The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.” – The Last Battle (Chronicles of Narnia)
“Tooth decay is caused by three things: Number one, poor diet, number two, not brushing properly and number three, bad fairies.” – The 10th Kingdom

But the world is full of zanies and fools
Who don’t believe in sensible rules
And won’t believe what sensible people say.
And because these daft and dewey-eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes,
Impossible things are happening every day.

“Stories are wild creatures, the monster said. When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?” – Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls
“It’s not that you should never love something so much that it can control you.

It’s your best strength.” – The Ask and the Answer
“Real or not real?” – Hunger Games
“And I kiss him.
And it feels like, finally.” – Monster of Men

He smiles and takes his index finger and presses it to my lips, leaves it there until my heart lands on Jupiter: three seconds, then removes it, and heads back into the living room. Whoa – well, that was either the dorkiest or sexiest moment of my life, and I’m voting for sexy on account of my standing here dumbstruck and giddy, wondering if he did kiss me after all. – The Sky is Everywhere
“Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds,
Towards Phoebus’ lodging; such a waggoner
As Phaeton would whip you to the west
And bring in cloudy night immediately” – Juliet, Romeo and Juliet
More to come! Can’t wait to put this thing together!
