I've been looking around Facebook today and found on Buzzfeed some great and funny stuff.  But just now, I found this wonderful link to its site of this list of sentences from the greatest authors of our times.

51 Beautiful Sentences in Literature

So, what do you think?  Do you think this list could be added to, or some of them replaced?  What is your most favoured sentence you love to quote from a book - and why?  Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. Oh, I love these kinds of posts!! Off to read your link now. :-)

  2. I liked the following sentence:

    “Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.”
    —Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

    There were a few other gems, but most sentences were just okay!!

    1. Wow... I like that one. :)

      Mine is mentioned in the list... from 'Anne of Green Gables.'

    2. Here's the ironic part... , Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer is on my Bookcrossing wishlist and I received it in the mail today from a Bookcrosser!! Can you believe it??

    3. Oh, wow! That's so cool! Well, enjoy reading it over Christmas! :D
