Top Ten Tuesday : Favorite Book Quotes

So, If I was a better and more organized blogger ... Like I should Be.. I would have prepared better for this Top Ten Tuesday and had all my favorite quotes, since I have a weird obsession with them.

1. “People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. 
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. 
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master...”  Eat,Pray, Love
2.  “A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.” ― Pride and Prejudice

3.  “The saddest people I've ever met in life are the ones who don't care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there's nothing to make it last.” ― Dear John
4.  “I'm lonely. Why do you think I had to learn to act so independent? I also get mad too quickly, and I hog the covers, and my second toe is longer than my big one. My hair has it's own zip code. Plus, I get certifiably crazy when I've got PMS. You don't love someone because they're perfect. You love them in spite of the fact that they're not.” ―My Sister's Keeper

5.  “In desperate love, we always invent the characters of our partners, demanding they be what we need of them, and then feeling devastated when they refuse to perform the role we created in the first place.” ― Eat, Pray,  Love
6.  "It's a matter of curiosity - and anyone who says they are utterly indifferent to what their significant exes are doing is, in my opinion, either lying or lacking a certain amount of emotional depth. I'm not saying it's healthy to be past-obsessed,fretting out details of every ex. But it's simply human nature to have an occasional, fleeting interest in someone whom you once loved"
- Love The One You're With
7.  "..I am so sick of the way people are. They Don't Give You Respect.They Don't Give You trust. That's what i hate most. You Can't Trust Human Beings anymore then a pack of wild wolves. They Don't have consciences. One Minute they let you touch them, and the next minute they rip you apart and walk away and don't look back. You Deal with the damage."- Now You See Her
8. “You’re not asleep, and you’re not dead. I’m here, and I love you. I have always loved you, and I will always love you. I was thinking of you, seeing your face in my mind, every second that I was away. When I told you that I didn’t want you, it was the very blackest kind of blasphemy.” ― New Moon  
9.  “If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” ― Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire 
10.   " ...Because horror on Earth is real and it is every day. It is like a flower or like the sun; it cannot be contained.” - The Lovely Bones
and a Bonus 11.  “Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love. It did not end well.” ― Daughter of Smoke and Bone
