Quotes from A Series of Unfortunate Events The Slippery Slope  by Lemony Snicket Book 10

  • When we met, you were pretty, and I was lonely. Now, I am pretty lonely.
  • I’m sure you know, if you are ever forced to do something very difficult, it often helps to think of something inspiring to keep you going.
  • That night was a dark day. Of course, all nights are dark days, because night is simply a badly lit version of day, due to the fact that the Earth travels around the sun reminding everyone that it is time to get out of bed and start the day with a cup of coffee or a secret message folded up into a paper airplane that can sail out the barred window or a ranger station. But in this case, the phrase ‘a dark day’ means ‘a sad time in the history of the Baudelaire children, V.F.D., and all kind, brave and well-read people in the world.’ “At this point, I will take a page from someone’s book, a phrase which here means ‘adopt an idea used by someone else.’ If, for instance, someone told you that the best way to write thank you notes is to reward yourself with a cookie everytime you finished one, you might take a page from his book, and have a plate of cookies nearby after your birthday or some other gift-giving occasion.
  • When you have many questions in yout mind, and you suddenly have an opportunity to ask them, the questions tend to crowd together and trip over one another, much like passengers on a crowded train when it reaches a popular destination.
  • In my experience, well-read people are less likely to be evil.
  • Fate is like a strange, unpopupar restaurant, filled with odd waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don’t always like.

This I Know by Eldonna Edwards Book Review

  • Taking one’s chances is like taking a bath, because sometimes you end up feeling comfortable and warm, and sometimes there is something terrible lurking around that you cannot see until it is too late and you can do nothing else but scream and cling to a plastic duck.
  • Wishing, like sipping a glass of punch, or pulling aside a bearskin rug in order to access a hidden trapdoor in the floor, is merely a quiet way to spend one’s time before the candles are extinguished on one’s birthday cake.
  • “Translo,” she said, which meant “Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean that it’s nonsense.
  • “This isn’t a very complicated recipe, Sunny,” her mother said, “but if I arrange the salad very nicely on fancy plates, people will think I’ve been cooking all day. Often, when cooking, the presentation of the food can be as importand as the food itself.”

How To Walk Away by Katherine Center Book Review 

Mini Book Haul

  • She rolled up her sleeves – an expression which here means “focused very hard on the task at hand, but did not actually roll up her sleeves, because it was very cold on the highest peak of the Mortmain Mountains.
  • … joking that lifting a large novel was the only exercise she liked to get during the hot months.
  • “The central theme of Anna Karenina,” he said, “is that a rural life of moral simplicity, despite its monotony, is the preferable personal narrative to a daring life of impulsive passion, which only leads to tragedy.”
  • A daring life of impulsive passion is an expression which refers to people who follow what is in their hearts, and like people who prefer to follow their head, or follow the advice of other people, or follow a mysterious man in a dark blue raincoat, people who lead a daring life of impulsive passion end up doing all sorts of things. For instance, if you ever find yourself reading a book entitled The Bible, you would find the story of Adam and Eve, whose daring life of impulsive passion led to them putting on clothing for the first time in their lives, in order to leave the snake-infested garden where they had been living.

Dork Diaries Pop Star Quotes

  • I bit my lip and blushed profusely as he stared at me with that look on his face. The one thing that can send me into a severe and debilitating case of RCS (Roller-Coaster Syndrome) in mere seconds.
  • She has the IQ of a plastic houseplant.
  • You must be delusional or something. Or maybe your hair clips are so tight, they’re cutting off the oxygen to your brain.

The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom Favorote Lines

  • Now I’m starting to wonder if Brandon actually likes me as MORE than just a friend!! And if he DOES, I’ll seriously just DROP DEAD from severe shock and extreme happiness!
  • By the end of our practice session, we had a very cool, original song about not fitting in at school and being who you really are. I have to admit, it isn’t about super serious stuff like lost love or saving the world. But it is OUR song, and it expresses how we feel. That’s the most important thing.

Here are the quotes I like from the first book of the Matched Trilogy.

“The two desires struggle within me: the desire to be safe, and the desire to know. I cannot tell which one will win.”

“I didn’t see him differently because I saw his face on the portscreen the morning after my Match; I saw him differently because I saw him outside, unguarded for a moment, with eyes the color of the sky in the evening before it goes down into dark. I saw him seeing me.”

“My birthday began with the water-
Birds and the birds of the winged trees flying my name
Above the farms and the white horses
And I rose
In rainy autumn
And walked abroad in a shower of all my days.”

“This is a difficult balance, telling the truth: how much to share, how much to keep, which truths will wound but not ruin, which will cut too deep to heal.”

“Ky did not give me any more of his history and I did not ask. Perhaps it is because now I live in his story. Now I am a part of his, and he of mine, and the part we write together sometimes feels like the only part that matters.”

“If she had a way to track all my memories, she would see they are pure.”

“Our time together feels like a storm, like wild wind and rain, like something too big to handle but too powerful escape.”

Favorite Lines from Cress by Marissa Meyer

Why L. A. Pourquoi Paris Favorite Lines

“That word, calm, sounds impossibly beautiful, gloriously uncomplicated. A water-smooth word, a word that can take the edge away from fear, gloss it over, make it shiny. Calm. Gentle.”

“Even now, when he smiles more often, I am still greedy for it.”

“They showed me a picture. The girl who would have been my Match if I weren’t what I am.”
“Who was she?”
“You”

“Of all the words I have hidden and saved and treasured, these are the ones I will never forget, the most important ones of all.”

“Cassia, he wrote at the top of the page, in letters that were tall and clear and unafraid, that curled and moved and turned my name into something beautiful, something more than a word. A declaration, a piece of song, a bit of art, framed by his hands.”

“I want to tell her everything but I can’t. Not now. I am too fragile. I am trapped in glass and I want to break out and breathe deep but I am too afraid that it will hurt.”

“I don’t trust myself to speak, so I shake my head.”

“My face fits perfectly into the spot against his shoulder, near his neck, where I can both hear his heart and smell his skin.”

“When I am with him, I feel. But he is gone. I saw it happen. I made it happen.”

Why L. A. Pourquoi Paris Favorite Lines

What’s up readers? It’s the 23rd day of Blogtober! If you don’t know what Blogtober is, it is a series I am conducting that starts from the first of October wherein I post on my blog everyday until Halloween. 🎃📚🍁📖🍂🍃❤

In this blogpost, I’m going to share my favorite lines from the book, “Why LA Poirquoi Paris?” I did a book review of this book so if you’re interested, you can check it out here and without further ado, let’s jump right into my favorite lines.

“Lining both banks of the Seine, the open-air Bouquinistes stalls, which sell second-hand books, rare magazines, postcards, and old advertising posters, are a definitive Parisian experience. The name comes from bouquiner, which means to read constantly (with pleasure).”


“The styles in Paris can be described as excentrique, romantique, classique, sporty, sophistiqué, arty, and sexy.”


“The focus is on the quality of life—people work to live, rather than live to work (as in LA), and material signs of success are looked down upon.”


“Angelenos have a passionate interest in food —it’s no coincidence that the term “ foodie” has gained great popularity here. LA cuisine is fresh, seasonal, inventive, and caters to the health-conscious.”


“Los Angeles is a playground for world-class chefs to show off to an influential and appreciative audience.”


“Los Angeles overflows with eating and drinking pleasures, from the gourmet to the casual. The LA food culture just keeps innovating. The culinary mashups make it one of the most exciting cities in the world for food.”


“Paris is not generally a producer— it is where products from all over the world converge. It is here that the respective qualities of every type of food are most appreciated, and put to the best use, to satisfy Parisians’ sensuality.”


“Restaurants are like theaters; they have their stage and their backstage.”
