Five Quotes Friday

5 stand-out quotes from books I’m reading or have read recently

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Do you understand what I’m telling you? When you’re given an opportunity to change your life, be ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen. The world doesn’t givethings, you takethings. If you learn one thing from me, it should probably be that. “

“I’m not a good person, Monique. Make sure, in the book, that that’s clear. That I’m not claiming to be good. That I did a lot of things that hurt a lot of people, and I would do them over again if I had to.”

Mistborn: The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

“You don’t know what I do for mankind, he had said, I was your god, even if you couldn’t see it. By killing me, you have doomed yourselves.”

The Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

The only alternative seems to be doing nothing, dearest Charlotte” he said. “And doing nothing, I find, rarely accomplishes anything. Besides, what could go wrong?”

“I feel myself diminished, parts of me spiraling away into the darkness, that which is good and honest and true – if you hold it away from yourself long enough do you lose it entirely? If no one cares for you at all, do you even really exist?”

Bonus: Here is a watercolor picture that I made, inspired by Mistborn. You can really see the mistcloak flapping around Vin’s body.
