    ReplyDelete
  35. Favourite movie quotes:
    In the spirit of the season from 'Elf', "Smiling is my favourite." "Make work your new favourite, ok. Work is your new favourite"

    And from 'You've Got Mail',
    "Joe"? "Just call me Joe"? As if you were one of those stupid 22-year old girls with no last name? "Hi, I'm Kimberly!" "Hi, I'm Janice!" Don't they know you're supposed to have a last name? It's like they're an entire generation of cocktail waitresses.

    Favourite book of all time is Pride and Prejudice, but a better read in some ways in Persuasion, so I recommend Persuasion as my must-read.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Your must read book is 'The Help" and my favorite movie quote ever is from Stardust:

    "You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it, seen centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate... Made me want to turn away and never look down again. But to see the way that mankind loves... I mean, you could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So, yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan, is... I think I love you. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange — no gifts, no goods, no demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me, too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine."

    Thank you for the opportunity to win your giveaway! Happy Holidays to you and your family <3 xo

    The Grandson: What?
    Grandpa: The eel doesn't get her. I'm explaining to you because you look nervous.

    I don't watch many movies, so don't have a favorite movie quote, but my favorite quote of the moment is "I shall call him Squishy. And he shall be mine. And he shall be MY Squishy" from Finding Nemo. XD

    My favorite book is A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. It's an amazing book. 1984 by Orwell is also fantastic.

  152. My favorite movie quote, hmm. "For though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil. For the author of all things watches over me. And I have a fine horse." Not my favorite, necessarily, but a good one.

    As for a book you should read, please read Eating Animals. It will open your eyes to the industrialization of farming in America and what that means for consumers, both in terms of health and, more importantly, in terms of karma.

  172. a) it occurs to me I don't have a favourite movie quote - must fix that. Instead I will run with Dr Seuss "I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some from behind. But I have bought a big bat, I'm ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me.
    b) Just finished reading "The Price of Life" by Nigel Brennan, Nicole Bonney and Kelly Brennan. I am not normally one for true stories but this one was fantastic. Gripping, heart breaking, uplifting and beautifully written.
