Topp ti på tirsdag #2: Favorittsitater

Topp ti på tirsdag er et konsept jeg har lånt fra den engelskspråklige bokbloggen The Broke and the Bookish. Dette er en spalte de har hatt gående lenge, og jeg ser at de allerede har tatt opp noen temaer jeg kunne tenke meg å skrive om – så jeg plukker fritt fra lista. Dette betyr at det antageligvis er et annet tema du finner på originalbloggen – og vi skal ikke se bort ifra at jeg finner på mine egne temaer også.


Denne gangen har jeg plukket ut ti sitater jeg har merket meg i bøkene jeg har lest. Det finnes maaaange flere sitater som jeg merker meg mens jeg har lest bøker, men merkelig nok er det vanskelig å huske hele ti stykker. 😉

1. All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others
– Animal Farm av George Orwell

2. Rellonen snuste på kona si for å se om han dro kjensel på lukten hennes. Jo da. Hun luktet gammel, oppgitt kjerring. En sånn lukt går ikke av i vask.
– Kollektivt Selvmord av Arto Paasilinna

3. Of course this is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
– Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows av JK Rowling

4.  As he looked at the woman in her characteristic attitude, her thick arms reaching up for the line, her powerful mare-like buttocks protruded, it struck him for the first time that she was beautiful. It had never before occured to him that the body of a woman of fifty, blown up to monstrous dimensions by childbearing, then hardened, roughened by work till it was course in the grain like an over-ripe turnip, could be beautiful. But it was so, and after all, he thought, why not?
– 1984 av George Orwell

5. He starts to tire, and tells himself that he doesn’t care where she is. She’s like mildew that has invaded his life. She’s the kind of mold that wouldn’t have appeared if he lived austerely, the kind that breeds only in the dark, neglected corners of a building. She has infected his life, not caring what he wants. He hates himself for trudging through the snow looking for a woman who was having sex with his brother on the day their mother was buried. Seriously, I don’t want to know where she is or whether she’s dead or alive. Still, even as he thinks this, he advances, putting one foot in front of the other.
– I Have the Right to Destroy Myself av Young-Ha Kim

6. The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t.
– The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy av Douglas Adams

7. ‘Love’, this English word: like other English words it has tense. ‘Loved’ or ‘will love’ or ‘have loved’. All these specific tenses mean Love is time-limited thing. Not infinite. It only exists in particular period of time. In Chinese, Love is ‘爱’ (ai). It has no tense. No past and future. Love in Chinese means a being, a situation, a circumstance. Love is existence, holding past and future. If our love existed in Chinese tense, then it will last for ever. It will be infinite.
– A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers – Xiaolu Guo

8. In the beginning, the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry, and has been widely regarded as a bad idea.
– The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy av Douglas Adams

9. I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
– The Fellowship of the Ring av JRR Tolkien

10. It takes much bravery to stand up to our enemies but we need as much bravery to stand up to our friends.
– Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone av JK Rowling

    Jeg er alltid imponert over de som husker sitater fra bøker, jeg hadde ikke klart å komme opp med ti stykker til denne listen. Har satt opp en egen tirsdagsliste som jeg fant blant The Broke and the Bookish sine tidligere lister.

      Jeg husker absolutt ikke sitatene ordrett i hodet, men jeg har en tendens til å skrive ned, markere og/eller lagre sitatene jeg liker på bokelskere.no – så da kan jeg finne dem igjen der. :p

    Kjempe flink du er til å huske sitater. er ikke noe god på det,men husker når jeg leste «spis,elsk og lev» så tok jeg meg selv å dra frem en blyant eller lage et esel øre der det var et bra sitat

    Mange bra sitater. Tror jeg blir nødt til å markere eller skrive ned gode sitater i fremtida 😉

    Det er tydelig at jeg må benytte meg av bokelskere i større grad. Takk for tipset 😉

His gallows humour and self-depreciation appeals to me. 😋😅 I've laughed until I've cried at some of his content. In a good way.

It's a stylistically simple series for children, and where in the previous two books a bear and a fish have to deal with hat-problems, this time two turtles find one. They decide to put it back where they found it, because there's just one hat, and two turtles. But one of the turtles can't quite stop thinking about the hat... Where the previous two sports some dark humour, this one is surprisingly sweet. I like the simple and clean art work - this one is just as enjoyable as the previous books! 🙂

Den er nylig utgitt på norsk, og jeg har fått mitt eksemplar av forlaget.

It is part of the Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions series. Bit too big and heavy to comfortably carry around with you, unfortunately.

I finally printed it a few days ago, but I've yet to actually read through it. Primarily because I remember all the little issues with the plot.  There's no time to fix stuff like that as the madness is happening...
I've sort of promised my #writingbuddy @kavehrashidi, who wrote his own novel at the same time, that he gets to read it. So I figured I'd do something about some of the issues... It's just such an effort. 😅
But yeah, it's quite the achievement to manage to put together something that resembles a novel in one month! 🎉🎖 #NaNoWriMo #novel #roman #book #bøker #books #bok #scifi #sciencefiction #tea #te  #papers #words #ord #writing #editing #redigering #bookstagram #bookish #instabook #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips
