Top Ten Favorite Book Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday

This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I always want to take a part in these great memes but I usually don't do them. This week, I couldn't skip Top Ten Tuesday. I'd probably not have a better chance to share my favorite quotes. Sometimes I write them down and if it's really good one and I can't write it, I force myself to remember the page number. (and my memory is not that good!)
Well, I will try to do a quote per book so I'll not end up writing all the quotes from Vampire Academy or Harry Potter.. I have so many! I didn't include any spoilers (only tiny things) so feel free to check them out. All these books are amazing, consider this post as a recommendation to read them all.
With no particular order, there they are: 

"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
— Albus Dumbledore. Harry Potter, J.K Rowling

"Okay, God, I thought. Get me out of this and I'll stop my half-assed church-going ways. You got me past a pack of Strigoi tonight. I mean, trapping this one between the doors really shouldn't have worked, so clearly you're on board. Let me get out of here, and I'll... I don't know. Donate Adrian's money to the poor. Get baptized. Join a convent. Well, no. Not that last one."
Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1)
— Anything Rose have ever said. Vampire Academy, Richelle Mead

"Some thing are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is."
— The Truth About Forever, Sarah Dessen

 "Hello, Officer? Can you help me? My dad got turned into a zombie. You know, we've been travelling around getting rid of things that aren't real, and this time they hit back. I really need someplace to stay – but can you make sure I have some holy water or something wherever it is? And some silver-jacketed bullets? That'd be sweet. Yeah, that'd be totally cool. Thanks. And while you're at it, can you tell the guys with the straitjackets that I'm really sane? That would help."
— Strange Angels, Lilith Saintcrow

"...How nothing comes without a price, and when you make sacrifices to get what you want, sometimes you screw up and pick the wrong thing. But once in a while, you pick the right thing, the exact best thing. Every day, the moment you open your eyes and pull off your blankets, that's what you hope for. The sunshine on your face, warm enough to make your heart sing."
~ Bittersweet, Sarah Ockler

"I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right."
Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)— The Book Thief, Markus Zusak

"When I try to fly away, Will I be as lucky and find what I'm looking for?"
—The Alchemy of Forever, Avery Williams

“If there's one common thread throughout all of history, it's that people have always fallen for the wrong people.”
― Past Perfect, Leila Sales

“Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”
― The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
― Before I Fall, Lauren Oliver
