I simply love writing down quotes from books I am reading. I am forever writing or highlighting words I like. I use them in my reviews quite a lot. Whether it is something that softens me, makes me cry, makes me sigh or shocks me … I love quotes. Therefore Thursday Quotables is the perfect outlet so that they get the attention they deserve.
The idea of sharing the most memorable lines is created and hosted by: Bookshelf Fantasies, and you should definitely join in.
It is very simple, you only need to share a favorite quote, line, or passage from your reading each week!
This week’s choice is my all-time favorite – Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austin.
“The very first moment I beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone.”
You must have known by now that I am an incorrigible romantic, but this quote here is one of the most romantic things I have ever read.
“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
This quote came from Darcy’s first marriage proposal extended to Elizabeth. The marriage proposal that she refused. But it so swoon-worthy…
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Whenever I think of this book, or of the many mothers and grandmothers I know, I remember this quote. The character of Mrs. Bennett is quite striking, and her efforts to marry her daughters are simply unforgettable and hilarious.
“My good opinion once lost is lost forever.”
These few words contain too much weight and truth in them. A powerful message that speaks louder than the longest letter. It just stuck in my mind forever.
