The reason why some authors remain in the hearts of many, generation after generation, is because the legacy of words they leave behind remain relatable. Be it Orwell, Austen or Elliot, they have created such great works that we still read them and find new ways to fit them into our lives. Which is why quotes hold so much beauty within their body of work and outside it, as individual entities. Some writers are and will remain famous for the gems that they have bestowed on makind with their words.

So here are twenty quotes from evergreen books that will feel so relatable that you just might begin to realise that it's all a cycle, the joy, the sorrow and everything in between.

Can't be grateful enough for these pearls, can we?
