In my opinion, if you want to know about a person, then you should start with two things: What music they listen to, and what books they read. So here are a few of my favorite quotes from my favorite books. Enjoy.
"Ah, to whom can we fall apart? Not to angels, nor men, and even the most clever of animals see that we are not surely at home in our interpreted world."--Rainer Maria Rilke as quoted by Maggie Steifvater, Linger
"Not all who wander are lost..."--J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
"Was that what life did to them all? Changed into harder, truer versions of themselves?"--Maggie Stiefvater, Blue Lily, Lily Blue
"I must, then, repeat continually that we are forever sundered--and yet, while I breathe and think I must love him."--Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
As you can see, my taste varies, so I may continue to update this. At least it's a start.
