Top 10 Tuesday: Favourite Quotes

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is my favourite quotes from books, with one at the end from a podcast:

1. “The consequence of this is that I'm always finding humans at their best and worst. I see their ugly and their beauty, and I wonder how the same thing can be both." - Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

2. "Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and downpour." - Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

4. "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

5. "If there's just one kind of folks, why can't they get along with each other? If they're all alike, why do they go out of their way to despise each other?
