Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

I've already got my favourite quotes in the margin to the right, but this weeks theme from The Broke and the Bookish calls for quotes specifically from books, so I had to look around a bit. I'm not sure how inspirational these are, but they would work for me. 

Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books!

  1. Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.  Neil Gaiman  - Coraline
  2. "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to." "I don't much care where." "Then it doesn't matter which way you go."  Lewis Carroll - Alice in Wonderland
  3. Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?  J.K. Rowling - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
