November: Favourite Quotes From the Last Books I Read

Hi everyone,

In today’s post I’m going to share with you some of my favourite quotes from the books I read in November! I’ve been doing this for almost a year now and I’ve found it so lovely to keep track of all my favourite quotes that I otherwise might have forgot.

I hope you’ve been enjoying these posts too!

Without further ado, here’s my favourite quotes from the books I read last month…


Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

“The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and storytellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.”

“Anne always remembered the silvery, peaceful beauty and fragrant calm of that night. It was the last night before sorrow touched her life; and no life is ever quite the same again when once that cold, sanctifying touch has been laid upon it.”

“It’s all very well to read about sorrows and imagine yourself living through them heroically, but it’s not so nice when you really come to have them, is it?”

“That’s the worst of growing up, and I’m beginning to realise it. The things you wanted so much when you were a child don’t seem half so wonderful to you when you get them.”

“Look at that sea, girls–all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”

“It was November–the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. Anne roamed through the pineland alleys in the park and, as she said, let that great sweeping wind blow the fogs out of her soul.”

“People laugh at me because I use big words. But if you have big ideas, you have to use big words to express them, haven’t you?”

“Dear old world’, she murmured, ‘you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.”

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

“Life is worth living as long as there’s a laugh in it.”


Dracula by Bram Stoker

“Do you not think that there are things which you cannot understand, and yet which are; that some people see things that others cannot? But there are things old and new which must not be contemplate by men´s eyes, because they know -or think they know- some things which other men have told them. Ah, it is the fault of our science that it wants to explain all; and if it explain not, then it says there is nothing to explain.”

“I sometimes think we must be all mad and that we shall wake to sanity in strait-waistcoats.”

“How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams.”

“I am all in a sea of wonders. I doubt; I fear; I think strange things, which I dare not confess to my own soul.”

“Once again…welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring.”

“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.”

“There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.”


The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis

“For what you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing: it also depends on what sort of person you are.”

“Pooh! Grown-ups are always thinking of uninteresting explanations.”

“Far overhead from beyond the veil of blue sky which hid them the stars sang again; a pure, cold, difficult music. Then there came a swift flash like fire (but it burnt nobody) either from the sky or from the Lion itself, and every drop of blood tingled in the children’s bodies, and the deepest, wildest voice they had ever heard was saying: “Narnia, Narnia, Narnia, awake. Love. Think. Speak. Be walking trees. Be talking beasts. Be divine waters.”


Thanks for reading!

Love, Zoë xx
