  1. OMG! The best quote ever! “But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.”- Brave New World

  2. Really wanted to do this Top Ten Tuesday, but thought I’d be repeating a lot of the books I’ve used in the past. I adore that quote from Return of the King, though–almost my favorite from the entire trilogy. And of course the one from To Kill a Mockingbird.
