Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Inspiring Quotes from Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Soooo, I’ve been waiting for this list for awhile. There are so many inspirational quotes in books especially that it was very, very hard to limit myself to only ten! And um, yes. These are all from the A Song of Ice and Fire series and Harry Potter. They’re very quotable!
