“Quotes and quotes and….quotes”

I love quotes! It was suggested that I find some of my favorite quotes in my book. I never thought about doing that. I found four that I tended to remember as I wrote the story, and after it was finished. I also am listing a few of my favorite quotes, notable and not so notable below mine. Some I’ve known forever, some not. Some I’ve wondered what was going through the quoter’s (is that a word? Probably not) mind. Heartache? Grief? Madness? Doesn’t matter. We all love quotes, and I’m not referring to the ‘okay-enough-someecards-flowing-through-my-facebook-or-twitter-newsfeed. I mean real, honest, creative, crazy, intelligent or romantic ones.  Feel free to add any of your own in the comments.

To all, to each, a fair good-night, and pleasing dreams and slumbers light~(Sir Walter Scott)


Quotes from The Sharing Moon:

“He reflects on all the times he thought she wasn’t sure of her feelings for him, when perhaps she might’ve been taking a leisurely stroll across Elijah’s heart, leaving footprints behind that he’d never seen.”
― Christy A. CampbellThe Sharing Moon

“The butterflies swirl again in Sera’s stomach. Perhaps they have brought along fireflies too, to light up her soul.”

― Christy A. CampbellThe Sharing Moon

“She smells like spring and flowers and rain, even though it’s winter. Sometimes, he thinks he loves her so much that his mind is unable to distinguish between love and obsession. Which is worse?”

― Christy A. CampbellThe Sharing Moon

to let her shine.” ~Lokesh Fouzdar
