Book quotes that match

I was reading through some of my favourite quotes from some of my favourite books the other day, and I noticed that some of them were really similar to each other. Phrases that were basically saying the exact same thing but through a slightly different choice of words.

When I looked into it more, I found a very interesting list of similar quotes…
