I don’t tend to remember quotes that well, and the ones I do tend to be kind of…weird. So bare with me on this, okay?
J. K. Rowling came up with like 90% of the quotes that I know and love, but this is my favorite out of all of them. It’s very true, and as a writer I know it’s even more so.
Does anyone ever ask you why you stay, Sean Kendrick? They do. And why do you? The sky and the sand and the sea and Corr. – Puck Connelly and Sean Kendrick. From the Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
It was a toss-up between this one and “Shh, shh, whispered the sea. I didn’t believe her”. But I finally decided on this one, and I must say, I love it. Maggie Stiefvater has this talent of showing a character’s entire personalities in one sentence, as she did with Sean in this quote. Uh, I love it!
Percabeth was my first OTP. They’ve faded into the background a little bit, to be replaced by Harry and Ginny, then Leo and Calpyso, then Ten and Rose, then FitzSimmons. But I still love them, and I still ship them to this day.
I like this one because it rings true. If you really thing about it, it’s true…everything we do can be connected to one of these, and that thought is both scary and calming at the same time.
You have to hand it to her, A. G. Howard knows how to end a novel with a bang. This was the very last sentence of Ensnared, and it left me satisfied. Which is really hard, I’m never satisfied when my favorite books are ending.
As a writer, I understand this feeling. Like there was so many words swirling around, threatening to both pull you under and hold you up. It’s an odd, powerful sensation, and what makes it even stranger is not everyone feels this way.
In 900 years of time and space I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t Important. -Eleventh Doctor. Matt Smith.
Yes, I am cheating….this is Doctor Who. Not only was Eleven my favorite because his personality was so complex…he got quotes like this. His goodbye speech makes me cry every time I watch it. If Twelve gets even half the amount of spectacular quotes that Eleven did…well, than, BBC is doing a fabulous job.
Vanity is the factor, but it is more a question of control. It is easier to trick others into perceiving you as beautiful if you can convince yourself you are beautiful. But mirrors have an uncanny way of telling the truth.- Doctor Demitri Erland, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.
I don’t really know why I like this quote so much. But it was one of the ones that stood out to me when I was reading it, and I’ve remembered it ever since.
It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart- Finnick Odar. From the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
This quote is heartbreaking and fantastic and sadly true. This fact is proven every day.
I realize something. That wasn’t a finish line for me…this is my new starting line. -Jessica from The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanan.
This is the very last line in the book, I believe…and it’s amazing. The Running Dream is a powerful book, and this is the perfect way to end it.
So, these are my favorite quotes (that I can remember). It’s amazing I even managed to scrape this much up, because I really can’t remember stuff like this. Quotes, last names, nothing like that.
