BANNED BOOKS WEEK 2012 Kick-off
FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO READ!
Also, thought I would share some quotes from some of my favorite books which have all been challenged and/or banned too! I am a REBEL!
“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what." (Atticus Finch)
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? Your father is alive in you, Harry, and shows himself plainly when you have need of him. (Albus Dumbledore)
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
“Make up your mind to this. If you are different, you are isolated, not only from people of your own age but from those of your parents' generation and from your children's generation too. They'll never understand you and they'll be shocked no matter what you do. But your grandparents would probably be proud of you and say: 'Theres a chip off the old block,' and your grandchildren will sigh enviously and say: 'What an old rip Grandma must have been!' and they'll try to be like you.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone With the Wind
Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
'So do I,' said Gandalf, 'and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.' ”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
