I added new quotes to the site today!  The quotes are from Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, She, Old Christmas and The Gift of the Magi.  I’ve got a few of my favorites below.

I’d like to thank Tim F. for contributing  the H. Rider Haggard quote.  If you have a quote that you’d like to see in the collection, please feel free to submit a quote like Tim did.

Life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating. ~ The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry

Young men’s love, then, lies
Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.
 ~ Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
 ~ Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

New Quote Topic – King Quotes

Over the weekend I added a new quote topic, king quotes.  You can see all of the king quotes here.  In the meantime here are a few of my favorites:

“All I say is, kings is kings, and you got to make allowances. Take them all around, they’re a mighty ornery lot. It’s the way they’re raised.” ~  The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

A well proportioned mind is one which shows no particular bias; one of which we may safely say that it will never cause its owner to be confined as a madman, tortured as a heretic, or crucified as a blasphemer. Also, on the other hand, that it will never cause him to be applauded as a prophet, revered as a priest, or exalted as a king. Its usual blessings are happiness and mediocrity. ~  Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy

“When I am king, they shall not have bread and shelter only, but also teachings out of books; for a full belly is little worth where the mind is starved.” ~  The Prince and The Pauper by Mark Twain

LitQuotesSome of you might have noticed that LitQuotes was down overnight.  While I’m located on the West Coast, some of the  servers that power the site are in the Boston area.   “Super-Storm” Sandy caused power outages and that caused the service disruption.   Thanks to the folks at ICDSoft for all their great work in bringing us back online.

New Facebook Page

I’ve just made a Facebook page for LitQuotes.  I’ve also redone the two quote photos that I’ve posted so far so that they’ll look better when you share them with your Facebook friends.

To celebrate the Facebook page, I made a new quote photo.  This one features a quote by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

A wave of panic passed over the vessel, and these rough and hardy men, who feared no mortal foe, shook with terror at the shadows of their own minds. ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

New Quotes and Thanks

LitQuotesRecently a reader named Julie contributed some lovely quotes from Anne Bronte’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.  (Thanks so much!!)  I’ve added them to the quotation collection along with two quotes that I found from A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

If you have a quote from classic literature that you’d like to add to the LitQuotes site, check out our quotation submission page.    In the meantime here’s a sample of today’s new quotes:

“There is such a thing as looking through a person’s eyes into the heart, and learning more of the height, and breadth, and depth of another’s soul in one hour than it might take you a lifetime to discover, if he or she were not disposed to reveal it, or if you had not the sense to understand it.” ~ The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

It is better to arm and strengthen your hero, than to disarm and enfeeble the foe. ~ The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

Two serendipitous things happened recently.  I tweeted the following quote today and got a lot of retweets.  I’ve also been noticing a lot of quote photos on Facebook.   I took it as a sign to make the first LitQuotes quote photo.

 

“I’ve always thought my flowers had souls.” ~ Lavender and Old Lace by Myrtle Reed
