Memorable Monday

Memorable Monday is a meme hosted by Escape in a Good Book.  I'm excited to join in on this one because I love quotes, which was the driving force behind the creation of Memorable Mondays.  I thank the ladies at Escape in a Good Book.

So... how do you participate?  It's simple ~

1) Share a quote that has captured your interest lately in a Memorable Monday post on your blog.

2) Come back here and leave the link to your post in the comment box below.  If you don't have a blog, I'd still love to hear, well, read, your quote.  Leave it in the comment box instead of a link to a non-existent blog.  :)

3) Visit other participants if you have time.  It's always nice to have visitors.  There's no overstaying your welcome this way, and they don't have to offer the obligatory drinks.  Or clean.

4) If you tweet your posts, feel free to use the hashtag #MemorableMonday.

Mostly my quotes will be from a book I've read, but they may occasionally come from cyberspace or from a friend.

This week, in anticipation of Brenna Yovanoff's release of Paper Valentine in January, I'm going back to The Replacement *and* The Space Between.  I couldn't choose, and I loved both books so much.

The Replacement 
Who can look at this cover and not *love* it?  I'm sure someone can, but I didn't even read the jacket flap before buying it at a conference.  Thankfully, it lived up to the cover.  If not exceeded it.  :)
"The simple truth is that you can understand the way you are.  You can know and love and hate it.  You can blame it, resent it, and nothing changes.  In the end, you're just a part of it."
"Sometimes this was just the way the game ended.  Sometimes you did your best, and it all went straight to hell anyway."

The Space Between
Again, another awesome cover that fit the book SO great!  
"The world is full of unused corners."
"People make decisions, and maybe you don't always agree, but those choices are still their own."

What quotes have you enjoyed recently?  Or forever ago?  Leave a link to your own Memorable Monday post or leave your quote(s) in the comment box.  Thanks!
