    Marilyn Monroe
    “I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
    Marilyn Monroe

    Mae West

  • #8
    Rick Riordan
    “Hey, can I see that sword you were using?"
    I showed him Riptide, and explained how it turned from a pen into a sword just by uncapping it.
    "Cool! Does it ever run out of ink?"
    "Um, well, I don't actually write with it."
    "Are you really the son of Poseidon?"
    "Well, yeah."
    "Can you surf really well, then?"
    I looked at Grover, who was trying hard not to laugh.
    "Jeez, Nico," I said. "I've never really tried."
    He went on asking questions. Did I fight a lot with Thalia, since she was a daughter of Zeus? (I didn't answer that one.) If Annabeth's mother was Athena, the goddess of wisdom, then why didn't Annabeth know better than to fall off a cliff? (I tried not to strangle Nico for asking that one.) Was Annabeth my girlfriend? (At this point, I was ready to stick the kid in a meat-flavored sack and throw him to the wolves.)”
    Rick Riordan, The Titan's Curse

    Rick Riordan
    “As for my brothers," Zeus said, "we are thankful"-he cleared his throat like the words were hard to get out-"erm, thankful for the aid of Hades."
    The lord of the dead nodded. He had a smug look on his face, but I figure he'd earned the right. He patted his son Nico on the shoulders, and Nico looked happier than I'd ever seen him.
    "And, of course," Zeus continued, though he looked like his pants were smoldering, "we must...um...thank Poseidon."
    "I'm sorry, brother," Poseidon said. "What was that?"
    "We must thank Poseidon," Zeus growled. "Without whom . . . it would've been difficult-"
    "Difficult?" Poseidon asked innocently.
    "Impossible," Zeus said. "Impossible to defeat Typhon.”
    Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

    Rick Riordan
    “We need music," Nico said. "How's your singing?"
    "Um, no. Can't you just, like, tell it to open? You're the son of Hades and all."
    "It's not so easy. We need music."
    I was pretty sure if I tried to sing, all I would cause was an avalanche.”
    Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

  • #11
    Rick Riordan
    “Christmas in the Underworld was NOT my idea.
    If I'd known what was coming, I would've called in sick. I could've avoided an army of demons, a fight with a Titan, and a trick that almost got my friends and me cast into eternal darkness.
    But no, I had to take my stupid English exam.”
    Rick Riordan, The Demigod Files

  • #12
    Rick Riordan
    “Percy scowled. "I-I know you."
    Nico raised his eyebrows. "Do you?”
    Rick Riordan, The Son of Neptune

  • #13
    Rick Riordan
    “Nico strode forward. The enemy army fell back before him like he radiated death, which of course he did.
    Through the face guard of his skull-shaped helmet, he smiled. "Got your message. Is it too late to join the party?"
    "Son of Hades." Kronos spit on the ground. "Do you love death so much you wish to experience it?"
    "Your death," Nico said, "would be great for me."
    "I'm immortal, you fool! I have escaped Tartarus. You have no business here, and no chance to live."
    Nico drew his sword-three feet of wicked sharp Stygian iron, black as a nightmare. "I don't agree.”
    Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

  • #14
    Rick Riordan
    “This is so cool!" Nico said, jumping up and down in the driver's seat. "Is this really the sun? I thought Helios and Selene were the sun and moon gods. How come sometimes it's them and sometimes it's you and Artemis?"
    "Downsizing," Apollo said. "The Romans started it. They couldn't afford all those temple sacrifices, so they laid off Helios and Selene and folded their duties into our job descriptions. My sis got the moon. I got the sun. It was pretty annoying at first, but at least I got this cool car."
    "But how does it work?" Nico asked. "I thought the sun was a big fiery ball of gas!"
    Apollo chuckled and ruffled Nico's hair. "That rumor probably got started because Artemis used to call me a big fiery ball of gas.”
    Rick Riordan, The Titan's Curse

  • #15
    Rick Riordan
    “You know what would help this boy?" Demeter mused. "Farming."
    Persephone rolled her eyes. "Mother-"
    "Six months behind a plow. Excellent character building.”
    Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

  • #16
    Rick Riordan
    “I looked down at my clothes. They were slashed to pieces and full of bullet holes, but I was fine. Not a mark on me.
    Nico's mouth hung open. "You just . . . with a sword . . . you just—"
    "I think the river thing worked," I said.
    "Oh gee," he said sarcastically. "You think?”
    Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

  • #17
    Rick Riordan
    “Whoa," said Nico as he climbed off the bus. "Is that a climbing wall?"
    "Yeah," I (Percy) said.
    "Why is there lava pouring down it?"
    "Little extra challenge..." - Percy”
    Rick Riordan, The Titan's Curse

  • #19
    Rick Riordan
    “The way to beat Luke," he said. "If I'm right, it's the only way you'll stand a chance."
    I took a deep breath. "Okay. I'm listening."
    Nico glanced inside my room. His eyebrows furrowed.
    "Is that...is that blue birthday cake?"
    He sounded hungry, maybe a little wistful. I wondered if the poor kid had ever had a birthday party, or if he'd ever even been invited to one.
    :Come inside for cake and ice cream," I said. "It sounds like we've got a lot to talk about.”
    Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

  • #20
    Rick Riordan
    “You promised you would protect her Nico said.
    He might as well have stabbed me with a rusty dagger.It would've hurt less than reminding me of my promise.”
    Rick Riordan, The Titan's Curse

  • #21
    Rick Riordan
    “Nico started to crawl away, groaning. Percy wanted him to move faster and groan less. He considered throwing his wonder bread at him.”
    Rick Riordan

  • #22
    Rick Riordan
    “Percy is the most powerful demigod I've ever met. No offense to you guys but it's true.”
    Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

  • #23
    Rick Riordan
    “A hero can go anywhere, challenge anyone, as long as he has the nerve.”
    Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Ultimate Guide

  • #24
    Rick Riordan
    “The name says it all. That's where Dad (Hades) tries out his new punishment ideas, but he says the traditional ones still work best: the lava flows, the minefields full of exploding surprises, burning at the stake, running naked through cactus patches... You name it, we've got it here - Nico di Angelo”
    Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Ultimate Guide

  • #25
    Rick Riordan
    “The real story of the Fleece: there were these two children of Zeus, Cadmus and Europa, okay? They were about to get offered up as human sacrifices, when they prayed to Zeus to save them. So Zeus sent this magical flying ram with golden wool, which picked them up in Greece and carried them all the way to Colchis in Asia Minor. Well, actually it carried Cadmus. Europa fell off and died along the way, but that's not important."
    "It was probably important to her.”
    Rick Riordan, The Sea of Monsters

  • #26
    Rick Riordan
    “What if it lines up like it did in the Trojan War ... Athena versus Poseidon?"
    "I don't know. But I just know that I'll be fighting next to you."
    "Why?"
    "Because you're my friend, Seaweed Brain. Any more stupid questions?”
    Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

  • #27
    Rick Riordan
    “I nodded, looking at Rachel with respect. "You hit the Lord of the Titans in the eye with a blue plastic hairbrush.”
    Rick Riordan

  • #28
    Rick Riordan
    “Hades raised an eyebrow. When he sat forward in his throne, shadowy faces appeared in the folds of his black robes, faces of torment,as if the garment was stitched of trapped souls from the Fields of Punishment, trying to get out. The ADHD part of me wondered, off-task, whether the rest of his clothes were made the same way. What horrible things would you have to do in your life to get woven into Hades' underwear?”
    Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

  • #29
    Rick Riordan
    “Afterward, I had the last laugh. I made an air bubble at the bottom of the lake. Our friends kept waiting for us to come up, but hey-when you are the son of Poseidon, you don't have to hurry. And it was pretty much the best underwater kiss of all time.”
    Rick Riordan

  • #30
    Rick Riordan
    Braccas meas vescimini!"
    I wasn't sure where the Latin came from. I think it meant 'Eat my pants!”
    Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

  • #31
    Rick Riordan
    “Monkey bar," Annabeth said. "I'm great at these." She leaped onto to the first rung and start swinging her way across. She was scared of tiny spiders, but not of plummeting to her death from a set of monkey bars. Go figure.”
    Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth
