Whether they're from new novels or tried-and-true classics, great passages jump out as if they're speaking directly to the reader. Take a look at the lines that have stuck with these Oprah.com readers, then tell us which favorite book quotes you've underlined.
"A tender heart and a brave soul light up the path for others with the kind of luminosity that heals and enlivens. So don't worry about being good. Instead, discover how both good and bad live within you. Deeply accept the shadows even as you seek the light. Believe in change. Take full responsibility for who you are and what you want. And from such forthright wisdom, your goodness will prevail and your kindness will blossom and your heart will be healed." — Elizabeth Lesser, The Seeker's Guide
