51 Of The Most Beautiful Sentences In Literature

The only bad thing about this list is that all of these are already taken. 😥 No seriously though, it’s useful to read other writers’ successes, even if they’re only one-liners. Here’s the full list, but here’s a few of my favorites:

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” -Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

“You don’t have to live forever, you just have to live.” -Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

“For poems are like rainbows; they escape you quickly.” -Langston Hughes, The Big Sea

“One must be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” -Cassandra Clare, The Infernal Devices
