A Collection of Quotable Quotes | Cameron House, Bookwise International

#QuotsyMay18 starts May 1!👆Here's a brief explanation about the monthly Quotsy challenge for anyone wondering what it's all about.

Ideally, your quote would be from a book & you'd tag it in your post, but you can use quotes from movies, song lyrics, interviews, etc. Ultimately, it's about sharing your love of words. If a quote is meaningful to you, it doesn't matter if it's not from a book!

Feel free to comment if you have questions!

You can also find info under the #QuotsyHost hashtag, or check out the hashtags from previous months to see examples (eg #QuotsyApril18, #QuotsyMarch18, #QuotsyFeb18, etc.)
TK-421 And here's a link to the original post of May's prompts so you can save a copy for reference: http://litsy.com/p/VGJ3aFh1T3BT 5y

The Hobbit | J.R.R. Tolkien

"Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love."
- J.R.R.Tolkien

Men At Arms | Terry Pratchett
post image

"But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that‘d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years‘ time, while a poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet. This was the Captain Samuel Vimes “Boots” theory of socioeconomic unfairness.” #theory #QuotsyMarch18 #QuotsyCatchup

CarolynM I think this is a brilliant distillation of economic unfairness. Terry Pratchett was just too clever 5y
TK-421 @CarolynM Definitely! I wish that I had discovered his work much sooner... I only learned of him about 3 years ago. He was so brilliant! 5y
CSeydel Vimes is probably my favorite character in Discworld! Loved Men at Arms. Still procrastinating on Light Fantastic... 5y
TK-421 @CSeydel 🙌 Vimes is one of my favourite characters too! I also love Granny Weatherwax & Nanny Ogg. I can't blame you for putting off the Rincewind books! I've only read as far as Eric (which I don't recommend) so I still have a few more to go, but ugh! I just don't like the Rincewind books as much as the rest of the Discworld books! So far the Rincewind one I liked best was Sourcery. The others were just OK. 5y
CSeydel Glad it‘s not just me. I actually haven‘t read any of the witches series either! But I plan to. I accidentally stumbled into Discworld by reading Monstrous Regiment, and since then I‘ve mostly read ones featuring the Night Watch. 5y

“...we danced too wild, and we sang too long, and we hugged too hard, and kissed too sweet...because...we were all old enough to know that what looks like ‘crazy‘ on an ordinary day looks a lot like ‘love‘ if you catch it in the moonlight.”
