January: Favourite Quotes

Hi everyone,

In today’s post, I am going to share with you some of my favourite quotes from the books I read in the month of January. I hope you enjoy these quotes as much as I did!


The Beautifull Cassandra by Jane Austen

‘She has many rare and charming qualities, but Sobriety is not one of them.’


The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis

“One of the drawbacks about adventures is that when you come to the most beautiful places you are often too anxious and hurried to appreciate them.”

“When things go wrong, you’ll find they usually go on getting worse for some time; but when things once start going right they often go on getting better and better.”

“Do not dare not to dare.”


The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

“There are three things that none of the young men of the present generation can do.They can’t sit over their wine;they can’t play at wist;and they can’t pay a lady a compliment.”

“I have always held the old-fashioned opinion that the primary object of work of fiction should be to tell a story.”

“Let the music speak to us of tonight, in a happier language than our own.”

“The best men are not consistent in good—why should the worst men be consistent in evil?”

“No sensible man ever engages, unprepared, in a fencing match of words with a woman.”

“Any woman who is sure of her own wits, is a match, at any time, for a man who is not sure of his own temper.”

“My hour for tea is half-past five, and my buttered toast waits for nobody.”


Thanks for reading!

Love, Zoë x
