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

I bought a new book. 🙃 Norma by Sofi Oksanen. About: When Anita Naakka jumps in front of an oncoming train, her daughter, Norma, is left alone with the secret they have spent their lives hiding: Norma has supernatural hair, sensitive to the slightest changes in her mood–and the moods of those around her–moving of its own accord, corkscrewing when danger is near. And so it is her hair that alerts her, while she talks with a strange man at her mother’s funeral, that her mother may not have taken her own life. Setting out to reconstruct Anita’s final months–sifting through puzzling cell phone records, bank statements, video files–Norma begins to realize that her mother knew more about her hair’s powers than she let on: a sinister truth beyond Norma’s imagining. As Sofi Oksanen leads us ever more deeply into Norma’s world, weaving together past and present, she gives us a dark family drama that is a searing portrait of both the exploitation of women’s bodies and the extremes to which people will go for the sake of beauty. #norma #sofioksanen #books #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #newbook #bookhaul
New book! Binti by Nnedi Okorafor. Looking forward to reading this one. About the book: Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs. Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach. If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself - but first she has to make it there, alive. #newbook #bookhaul #binti #nnediokorafor #sciencefiction #scifi #litteratur #literature #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #bookcoverlove #coverlove #book #bok #bøker #books

I recently read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, and I'll happily recommend it to you. I'd say I liked the beginning better than the end, but overall a good read! #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #eleanoroliphant #gailhoneyman #newbook #currentlyreading #bookhaul #books #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram

One of my all time favourites. 😍 Kudos to the artist, Lauren Davis @lrndvs, you should all go check out her work! #coverlove #laurendavis #medicaljournal #tidsskriftet #tidsskriftfordennorskelegeforening #legeforeningen #dennorskelegeforening #art #heart #medicine
My friend wrote a book. About the anus, no less. I fjor fleipet jeg og @kavehrashidi om trenden med rimetitler på popvitenskapelige medisinske bøker. Jeg foreslo at han burde skrive Manus om anus. Han fikk med seg @dr.bergland på laget, og her er resultatet. 🙃😅 #manusomanus #kavehrashidi #jonaskingebergland #bøker #books #litteratur #literature #book #lesetips #nrklesetips #nybok #newbook #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #bookworm #bokorm #lesehest #bookhaul #sakprosa #humor #popvitenskap #gyldendal

I have clearly neglected this account recently. Sorry! I have no valid excuse. 😓 I am currently teaching myself Dungeons and Dragons!

Hi guys! I’ve been quiet for a while, partially because I'm doing #NaNoWriMo again this year. Apparently didn't learn my lesson last year! 😂 If you don't know what that is, long story short: you write a 50000 word novel in a month, which means on average 1667 words every day. Sometimes when I tell people this, they frown and wonder what the point of that is. There’s no way you can write anything ready to send off to a publisher in a month. And yes, I agree. But that's not the point. For me, it's an excersise in not nitpicking and criticising everything I write. Simply because I don't have time. And it feels pretty good to just let my creativity loose like that! Don't get me wrong though. It's difficult. But I'm on schedule and hope to make it to the finish line in time. The book in the picture is by the founder of Nanowrimo, #chrisbaty. #noplotnoproblem #books #bøker #coffee #kaffe #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #litteratur #literature #bookworm #bokorm #sakprosa #nonfiction #bookporn #coffeeporn #writing #skriving
