What is one of your favorite quotes from a novel or a poem?

This is just one of my favorites.

"Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you."
— Charlotte Bronte Jane Eyre

  • I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
    -Robert Frost

  • "I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.."

  • So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday."

  • They wanted to speak, but could not; tears stood in their eyes. The were both pale and thin; but those sick pale faces were bright with the dawn of a new future, of a full resurrection into a new life. The were renewed by love; the heart of each held infinite sources of lif for the heart of the other. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
