    Lauren Oliver
    “Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
    But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
    Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

    “What was there to be gained by fighting the most evil wizard who has ever existed?" said Black, with a terrible fury in his face. "Only innocent lives, Peter!"

    J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    Stephanie Perkins
    “Most people in Atlanta don't have an accent. It's pretty urban. A lot of people speak gangsta, though," I add jokingly.
    "Fo' shiz," he replies in his polite English accent.
    I spurt orangey-red soup across the table. St. Clair gives a surprised ha-HA kind of laugh, and I'm laughing too, the painful kind like abdominal crunches. He hands me a napkin to wipe my chin. "Fo'. Shiz." He repeats it solemnly.
    Cough cough. "Please don't ever stop saying that. It's too-" I gasp. "Much."
    "You oughtn't to have said that. Now I shall have to save it for special occasions."
    "My birthday is in February." Cough choke wheeze. "Please don't forget.”
    Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss

    Neil Gaiman
    “May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
    Neil Gaiman

    J.K. Rowling
    “The world had ended, so why had the battle not ceased, the castle fallen silent in horror, and every combatant laid down their arms? Harry's mind was in freefall, spinning out of control, unable to grasp the impossiblity, because Fred Weasley could not be dead, the evidence of all his senses must be lying - ”
    J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    Cassandra Clare
    “Must you go? I was rather hoping you'd stay and be a ministering angel, but if you must go, you must."

    "I'll stay," Will said a bit crossly, and threw himself down in the armchair Tessa had just vacated. "I can minister angelically."

    "None too convincingly. And you're not as pretty to look at as Tessa is," Jem said, closing his eyes as he leaned back against the pillow.

    "How rude. Many who have gazed upon me have compared the experience to gazing at the radiance of the sun."

    Jem still had his eyes closed. "If they mean it gives you a headache, they aren't wrong.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

    Cassandra Clare
    “If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all?”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

    Cassandra Clare
    “So you don't ever get angry at him?"
    Jem laughed out loud. "I would hardly say that. Sometimes I want to strangle him."
    "How on earth do you prevent yourself?"
    "I go to my favorite place in London," said Jem, "and I stand and look at the water, and I think about the continuity of life, and how the river rolls on, oblivious of the petty upsets in our lives."
    Tessa was fascinated. "Does that work?"
    "Not really, but after that I think about how I could kill him while he slept if I really wanted to, and then I feel better.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

    Cassandra Clare
    “Jem seemed to look through her then, as if he were seeing something beyond her, beyond the corridor, beyond the Institute itself. "Whatever you are physically," he said, "male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside." He smiled them, seeming to have come back to himself, slightly embarrassed. "That's what I believe.”
    Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

    “Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”
    Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

    Laini Taylor
    “She craved a presence beside her, solid. Fingertips light at the nape of her neck and a voice meeting hers in the dark. Someone who would wait with an umbrella to walk her home in the rain, and smile like sunshine when he saw her coming. Who would dance with her on her balcony, keep his promises and know her secrets, and make a tiny world wherever he was, with just her and his arms and his whisper and her trust.”
    Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

    Stephanie Perkins
    “Anna prods St. Clair's shoulder. "Come on. Weren't you gonna show me that thing?"
    "What thing?"
    She stares at him. He stares back. She cocks her head toward Cricket and me.
    "Ah, yes." St. Clair stands. "That thing."
    They rush out. The door shuts, and St. Clair shouts, "Lola, Cricket wants to show you his thing, too-oo!”
    Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

    “What...what about when I'm married?”

    “What are you grinning at?" Katsa demanded for the third or fourth time. "Is the ceiling about to cave in on my head or something? You look like we're both on the verge of an enormous joke."
    "Katsa, only you would consider the collapse of the ceiling a good joke.”
    Kristin Cashore, Graceling

    “But you're better than I am, Katsa. And it doesn't humiliate me. It humbles me. But it doesn't humiliate me.”
    Kristin Cashore, Graceling

    Kiersten White
    “Yes, I have a driver's license."

    I leaned back against the wall, sighing. "Man, that must be so cool."

    "It ranks right up there with lockers. In fact, sometimes I put my license inside my locker, and it's so cool I worry that the whole thing might explode with the sheer coolness of it all.”
    Kiersten White, Paranormalcy

    Stephanie Perkins
    “One of the new girls followed me in and said she thinks Toph is an insensitive douchebag motherhumping assclown, and that I shouldn't let him get to me. Which was sweet, but didn't really help.”
    Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss

    Suzanne Collins
    “Finnick?" I say, "Maybe some pants?"
    He looks down at his legs as if noticing his outfit for the first time. Then he whips off his hospital gown leaving him in just his underwear. "Why? Do you find this" -- he strikes a ridiculously provocative pose -- "distracting?"
    I laugh. Boggs looks embarrassed and Finnick looks more like the guy I met at the Quarter Quell”
    Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

    Laini Taylor
    “Happiness. It was the place where passion, with all its dazzle and drumbeat, met something softer: homecoming and safety and pure sunbeam comfort. It was all those things, intertwined with the heat and the thrill, and it was as bright within her as a swallowed star.”
    Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

    Veronica Roth
    “Got that gun?” Peter says to Tobias. “No,” says Tobias, “I figured I would shoot the bullets out of my nostrils, so I left it upstairs.”
    Veronica Roth, Insurgent
