Sophie Reads Stuff

Budding writer keeping track of my favourite quotes and the things that I've read. Some of these are from books I've read for school, most of them for pleasure.
"They sat in a near comatose state, suspended with their backs to the wind, trying to will themselves to air their grievances and speak their woes, but unfortunately they were men and had been trained from a young age not to speak of their feelings or discuss their thoughts, instead they just had to keep it on lockdown."

The Stamp Collective by Paul Schiernecker

"Unfortunately, adults live in a world of the grey."

The Stamp Collective by Paul Schiernecker

"Work is God's curse on us! Remember that, Edward! Don't ever try to escape it!"

The Artiste, The Codex by Lev Grossman

"Sometimes writing is running downhill, your fingers jerking behind you on the keyboard the way your legs do when they can't quite keep up with gravity."

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

"But there's nothing more profound than creating something out of nothing. Think about it, Cath. That's what makes a god - or a mother. There's nothing more intoxicating than creating something from nothing. Creating something from yourself.""

Professor Piper. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

"Can't you recognize the human in the inhuman?"

Father Peregrine, The Fire Balloons from The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

"They are inventions. They can do things. I can't do the things they do. I can invent."

Without Saying, from How They Met by David Levithan

"When I realized I was into girls, it was scary to let go of all the things I was supposed to be and all the things I was supposed to want. It's like you're a character in this book that everyone around you is writing, and suddenly you have to say, I'm sorry, but this role isn't right for me. And you have to start writing your own life and doing your own thing."

Miss Lucy had a Steamboat, from How They met by David Levithan

"They'd been so young and innocent and hopeful, and they'd found something more wonderful than they could ever have hoped for, and it had destroyed them."

The Magician King, by Lev Grossman

"Sometimes I think I am fate's sword. She wields me cruelly."

Bingle, The Magician King by Lev Grossman

"For everyone nowadays knows, absolutely is certain, that nothing will ever happen to me. Others die, I go on. There are no consequences and no responsibilities. Except that there are. But let's not talk about them, eh? By the time the consequences catch up with you, it's too late, isn't it, Montag?"

Beatty, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

"Those who don't build must burn."

Faber, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

"Let you alone! That's all very well, but how can I leave myself alone? We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long has it been since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?"

Guy Montag, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

"There are too many of us, he thought. There are billions of us and that's too many. Nobody knows anyone. Strangers come and violate you. Strangers come and cut your heart out. Strangers come and take your blood."

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

"If I loved Mag the way she thought I did, I would have stood beside her and died a ridiculous, noble death.
But love is a choice.
And I can choose not to love her."

Love is a Choice by Beth Revis (From Shards and Ashes)

"I haven't left a mark on the world, but is that so bad? Considering how deeply the world has marked me?"

Rama, Necklace of Raindrops by Margaret Stohl (From Shards and Ashes)
