Reading books let you get to know characters in and out, let you see places you’ve never been, let you feel emotions you’ve never felt, and make you cry like you’ve lost a piece of your heart. Today I’ll be sharing with you some of the most tear-jerking literary quotes I’ve ever read. Just a piece of advice: Grab some tissues, Danglers.
1. “And Percy was shaking his brother, and Ron was kneeling beside them, and Fred’s eyes stared without seeing, the ghost of his last laugh still etched upon his face.” —J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
2. “I was too young to know how to love her.” —Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
3. “I know so many last words. But I will never know hers.” —John Green, Looking for Alaska
4. “So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.” —Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
5. “I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.” —R.J. Palacio, Wonder
6. “I am disappearing. Maybe I’m already gone.” —Jennifer Niven, All The Bright Places
7. “You can love someone so much…But you can never love people as much as you can miss them.” —John Green, An Abundance of Katherines
8. “When someone’s been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it’s like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you’re just clutching air and grit. That’s why you can’t save it all up like that.
Because by the time you finally see each other, you’re catching up only on the big things, because it’s too much of a bother to tell about the little things. But the little things are what make up life.” —Jenny Han, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
9. “I guess that’s what saying good-bye is always like–like jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice to do it. Once you’re in the air, there’s nothing you can do but let go.” —Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall
10. “A lot of you cared, just not enough.” —Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why
11. “I am a drifter, and as lonely as that can be, it is also remarkably freeing. I will never define myself in terms of anyone else. I will never feel the pressure of peers or the burden of parental expectation. I can view everyone as pieces of a whole, and focus on the whole, not the pieces. I have learned to observe, far better than most people observe. I am not blinded by the past or motivated by the future. I focus on the present because that is where I am destined to live.” —David Levithan,Every Day
12. “There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities…. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for our little infinity. You gave me forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.” —John Green, The Fault In Our Stars
13. “We can’t fight another person’s battle, no matter how much we want to.” —Jennifer Niven, Holding Up the Universe
14. “There’s only two rules: “Don’t ask about my past,” he says firmly. “And never expect a future.” —Colleen Hoover, Ugly Love
15. “Just live well. Just live.” —Jojo Moyes, Me Before You
