40 Of My Favorite Book Quotes


Finding quotes for inspiration is a favorite past time of mine. Especially ones that I find from books. Without those amazing life-shattering quotes, there are times where I honestly think that I wouldn't still be fighting for my wellbeing.



There are so many quotes that have picked me up in life when I felt like I was falling apart. Mental health is not a strong suit for me. Not to mention all the so-called "diagnoses" that I have... that I won't go into detail with... The major one being Bipolar Disorder.

Life isn't easy. 

I use books to escape reality and my own mind. Reading has always calmed my anxiety. Honestly, I have no idea what I would do without books.


In one way or another, all of these quotes have helped me in some way. Or I read them at times when I needed them most. In a way, they define me as a person. I thank god every single day that they exist.

― Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
