Day 8 Favorite Quotes from Books

Day 8 of the 30 Day Challenge is all about my favorite quotes from books that I have read! I love quotes, but I never had really thought too much about quotes from books as I read them. 

My ALL TIME favorite quote from a book is probably one that is a little bit over used and loved by many people but I cannot help it. 

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. ” 
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Lord of the Rings
           -I love Lord of the Rings and this is pretty much my favorite sentence from the whole thing. It screams adventure to me, and really kind of tells the mood of the books too. It's dangerous, but it something that must be done some times. 

"If you alone found out what the lie was, then you're probably right—it would make no great difference. But if you ALL found out what the lie was, it might conceivably make a very great difference indeed." — Daniel Quinn
          -This is a quote from Ishmael, which is a book that I really loved. I think that the idea of making a difference in the world is something everyone should aspire to, and this book makes you feel like you can do it. If only we could get everyone to open their minds and listen, we could all find out the lie.

“One loses everything when one loses one's sense of humor.” 
― Ayn RandThe Fountainhead
         -Another beautiful book, The Fountainhead has many quotable parts in it. I think that this quote is just universal. I happen to love to laugh and I think that a sense of humor is one of the most important things someone can have to ensure a happier life.

These are some of my favorite quotes from books that I have read. Is there a quote from a book that you just love? Let me know your favorites!
