William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“She was elusive. She was today. She was tomorrow. She was the faintest scent of a cactus flower, the flitting shadow of an elf owl. We did not know what to make of her. In our minds we tried to pin her to a cork board like a butterfly, but the pin merely went through and away she flew.”
Jerry Spinelli, Stargirl

“I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.”
