TTT: Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books/Movies

This weeks topic is Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

These are a few of my favorite lines or quotes (in no particular order) from some of the books/movies that I've loved. Each one has some special meaning, whether it made me cry, laugh, smile or I drew some inspiration from the words.  

Quotes from the Prisoner of Azkaban 
- Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
- You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us?  You think that we don't recall them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble?  Your father is alive in you, Harry, and shows himself plainly when you have need of him.

So, what are some of your favorite book quotes? Did I list any that you liked, or maybe you have one that you'd like to share. Feel free to post your TTT link in the comments.  


  1. I love all of your choices specially Harry Potter's; those always make me cry.

  2. Great quotes! I picked that HP one too - Azkaban is my favorite. Love your addition of Walt Disney and Ferris Bueller too. :)

    1. I tried to mix things up a bit, it was hard to stop at ten. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I read Calpurnia Tate and I remember thinking that there were some wonderful quotes in the story. I like this selection of quotes, Brenda! They are all definitely worthy of meditating on...

  4. I have to confess that I haven't read most of these books--but they are brilliant quotes. Especially love the Harry Potter ones! :)

  5. I love the Winnie the Pooh quote!

    1. Winnie the Pooh is always so quote worthy, but it's one of my favorites.

  6. What wonderful quotes. HP #3 is one of my favorite books and I love the quotes you chose. I started Capurnia Tate a couple years ago (only read a couple pages and had to return it to the library and somehow never started it again). I like the quote you shared from it and am thinking I should check it out again! :)

  7. Love that quote from Prisoner of Azkaban!

  8. That quote from Winnie the Pooh is so cute and adorable! Great list! :)
