Love-a-thon 2015. One can only quote.

BANNER - 2015 LOVEATHON
Hosted by Alexa from http://www.alexalovesbooks.com

This mini-challenge is all about picking your favorite quotes about 'love' and 'friendship'. I went with friendship quotes, because friendship are a powerful thing. I'm a big fan of Disney, so I went with a quote from Winnie the Pooh by A.A Milne.

Sketched by me, based on a picture from A.A Milne's work.

And I forced myself to pick only three quotes. There you go;

This is something I recognize myself in:
“You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.” - Nicholas Sparks, The notebook.


Because there is almost no better friendship than these three:
"You said it once before," said Hermione quickly, "that there was time to turn back if we wanted to. We've had time, haven't we? We're with you whatever happens.” - Hermione, J.K Rowling, Harry Potter & the half-blood prince.

And the last one, because I think it's powerful to see this happen between two guys.
“He looked at his friend, perhaps for the last time, and said what he had always known, from the moment they’d met, when he’d understood that the prince was his brother in soul. “I love you.” - Sarah J. Maas, Heir of fire.

What are some of your favorite quotes?

  8. I love these quotes so much!! (And I WISH the kids I nanny would be interested in reading Winnie the Pooh *grumble grumble* Cute sketch btw!) And I love, LOVE that Maas not only has powerful ships, obviously, but you see really strong platonic relationships that are man/man, woman/man, and woman/woman and I LOVE that. I don't get to read many books where authors do that.
