Literary Quotes by Hannah Wight

Everyone likes a good inspirational quote. We like to post them on social media, hang them on our walls, and incorporate them into our conversations. Certain quotes have a way of sticking with us, and we may even rely on them in times of stress or when we need motivation. Some sayings have been around so long, or have been used so frequently, that the origins of where they were first read have been forgotten. Below are a list of famous quotes and the books they are from, so that the next time you hear a well-used quote you can say, “Hey! I know where that came from.”
