Nicole's Top Five

Below are some quotes from my favorite books that inspire me to seize the day, stay true to myself, and make me feel a little less alone in the world. :)

1. ""We are born in one day. We die in one day. We can change in one day. And we can fall in love in one day. Anything can happen in just one day.” ―  Gayle Forman, Just One Day

2. “Throughout it all, you are still, always, you: beautiful and bruised, known and unknowable.” ―  Leila Sales, This Song Will Save Your Life

3. “But sometimes life gives us those rare moments where we do see chance as it’s happening. And in those moments, we have a choice. And sometimes we have to take a risk. And it’s scary. It makes us vulnerable. But I know now it’s worth it.” ― Jessi Kirby, Golden

4. “Take a risk. Take a fucking risk. If you keep playing it safe, you'll never know who you are." ― Stephanie Perkins, Isla and the Happily Ever After

5. “I don't think you have to do something so big to be brave. And it's the little things that are harder anyway.” ― Morgan Matson, Since You've Been Gone

Ashley's Top Five

1. "Books light the fire - whether it's a book already written, or an empty journal that needs to be filled." ― Meg Wolitzer, Belzhar

2. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasures of saying true things. ―  John Greene, The Fault in Our Stars

3. "I don't recall her ever being awkward, but that's the funny thing about awkwardness: You can never tell how much of it is in your head and how much of it is read.  Because if you ask the other person if it's real - that is, if she feels it, too - then automatically it is.  Because discussing awkwardness is always, well, awkward." ―  Josh Sundquist, We Should Hang Out Sometime 

4. “There are moments when you can't believe something wonderful is happening. And there are moments when your entire consciousness is filled with knowing absolutely that something wonderful is happening." ― Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

5. “Life is a book, and there are a thousand pages I have not read. I would read them together with you, as many as I can, before I die..." - Cassandra Clare, The Clockwork Princess
