I think a 19th century novel cannot be compared to a postmodern novel or a graphic novel. Also, I’m not good at memorizing quotes: they are terribly meaningful when I read them, but then I forget. However, this one always sticks with me:

“To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name.” – Dr. Watson, A Scandhal in Bohemia (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)

Then, doing some reserach I googled my favourite books and found the following quotes:

“Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.”- Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will.”- Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre

“Life’s a nasty habit”- Bean from The Weird Sisters (Eleanor Brown)

“Go and see what might be. Before it’s too late” – The Weird Sisters (Eleanor Brown)

“How old were you when you first realized your parents were human?” – The Weird Sisters (Eleanor Brown)

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” – Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier)

“They are not brave, the days when we are twenty-one. They are full of little cowardices, little fears without foundation, and one is so easily bruised, so swiftly wounded, one falls to the first barbed word.” – Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier)
