I was going to title this "Top Five Favorite Book Quotes" but then I realized that I can't pick just five. This will be a topic I have to come back to upon occasion, because there are far too many quotes that I love to pick just five! But for today, here are five of my favorites, in no particular order:

“The Faraway house was built on books as surely as though its foundations had been all hard covers instead of fieldstone.” - Gwen Walker - The Ordeal of Lady Godiva

 “Time stole away commitments and loosened ties. Friendships were reduced to tales of the past and vague promises for the future, neither strong enough to recover what was lost. But that was what life did – it took you down separate roads until one day you found yourself alone.” - Terry Brooks - First King of Shannara

"It was a sad song, a heartbreaking song, wild and proud... about all the losses a human heart might hold dear and remember. We are alike, you and I, she thought, homeless wayfarers in a world that is not our own." - Stephen R. Lawhead - Taliesin

“Safe? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good.” - C.S. Lewis - The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

And, in honor of the upcoming elections:

"It is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job." - Douglas Adams - The Complete Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
