Quotes from Literature

Hello dear readers, welcome back. Usually Friday’s Quote of the Day post relates to whatever book I reviewed on the Monday, but I didn’t review a book this week yet.

This week is a bit different, because I have a special book review coming tomorrow, and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by posting quotes from it today.

Instead you’re getting an ensemble of quotes from different pieces of literature that I have found.

Hope you enjoy!


“Just breathing isn’t living!” – Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter

“There are times, young fellah, when every one of us must make a stand for human right and justice, or you never feel clean again.” – The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give. – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

“It seemed to me that where others had prayed before to their God, in their joy or in their agony, was of itself a sacred place.” – Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

“It’s Christmas Day!” said Scrooge to himself. “I haven’t missed it. The Spirits have done it all in one night. They can do anything they like. Of course they can. Of course they can.” – A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
