    @kayla-skywriter your second to last one is Henry and the Chalk Dragon, right?

    Man gets used to everything, the scoundrel!

    Life is a mess and a miracle. So pick up a broom and dance.

    On the day the world ended, the fate of humanity rested in a small metal box. (From the movie version of a book series)

    Even the quotes here that I don’t recognize are fun as good quotes, lol!

    "...by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there."

    Ooh this looks fun.

    @jennythefaun I think your first one is from Crime and Punishment?

     

    Okay I’ve got a couple…

    “I want to do something splendid…something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead.  I don’t know what, but I’m on the watch for it and mean to astonish you all someday.”

    and

    “And please don’t call me that.”

    “I didn’t call you ‘that’, I called you George Washington.”

    Yes, it is.

    How we chose to fight is just as important as what we fight for

    @emgc Precisely so!

    Is your first one by Louisa May Alcott? I want to say it’s from Little Women but it could be from something else she wrote too…

    @jennythefaun The second one is from The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic

    @emgc And your second is from The Mysterious Benedict Society (The first book in that series is the best)

    @quinn-ofallon @toklaham-veruzia Indeed! (I like the City of Ember movie too. It’s one of the few book-to-movie adaptations I heartily approve of.)

    Oh, it was the Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic. Shoot, I read that book.

    @jennythefaun Yep! It is Little Women.  (By far my favorite work of hers. 🙂 )

    @toklaham-veruzia Yep, it’s my favorite as well! (I had a really hard time deciding what quote to use… there’s far too many good ones…)

    Two more: (both from the same series)

    “I will never forgive that suit of armor!”

    “To change the world, you must first change yourself.”
