#FaveFiveFriday Lines from Literature

#FaveFiveFriday is an initiative by Buzz Magazine

 “It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”
- André Gide, Autumn Leaves

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”
— Stephen King, The Shawshank Redemption

“You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world... but you do have some say in who hurts you.”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.” 
― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina


  1. Love the last one. I haven't come across this quote before. It's really good.

  2. I was avoiding the Gide and the John Green quotes, but we do have HP quote in common (not a big surprise). :-)

  3. Aaaahh, that line from Anna Karenina is pure love. Wish I could write like that some day, so much depth, so much romance, in just a few words.
