Morgan Rhodes quotes (showing 1-30 of 206)

“Even paradise could become a prison if one had enough time to take notice of the walls.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light? It's something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist. What might not be evil to you could be evil to someone else. Knowing this makes us powerful even without magic.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“You're the same as you were yesterday and the day before. Nothing has changed. Not really. Forget what troubles you. Regret nothing, but learn from any mistakes you make. Tomorrow will be a brighter day, I promise.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“You must continue to believe with all your heart. Sometimes belief is all if takes to make something real.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“Sometimes, to regain sanity, one had to acknowledge and embrace the madness.”
Morgan Rhodes, Rebel Spring
“Because if you don't choose to fight against the wrong in the world, then you are the wrong in the world.”
Morgan Rhodes, Frozen Tides
“In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore. And, whatever the cost, I refuse to let that light be extinguished”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“Then his heart, now broken into a thousand pieces, slowly began to turn to ice.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms

But there was no changing the truth of it.
He had fallen in love with her.”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“She was his princess. No. She was his goddess. With her golden skin and golden hair. She was his light. His life. His everything.
He loved her more than anything else in this world.”
Morgan Rhodes, Frozen Tides
“Evil is a choice one makes, not a natural state of being.”
Morgan Rhodes, Rebel Spring
“Magic will find those with pure hearts, even when all seems lost.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“Hate is such a strong emotion. Much more powerful than indifference. But those who burn with hate can also love just as intensely. Can't they? When you hate--or love--do you do so with all your heart? So much that it feels as if you might die from it?”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“I have stories. But stories are not facts.'
'I like stories. Love them, actually. Most of the time they're better than facts.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“You don't cry when someone pushes you down. You get up. You get up and you fight back. And pretty soon nobody's going to shove you anymore because they'll see it's not worth it.”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“I believe we make our own destinies, every last one of us.”
Morgan Rhodes, Rebel Spring
“You must draw from that strength. You must increase it. And you must hold on to it because sometimes that small glimmer of inner strength is all that we have to help us press forward through the darkness.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“The truth is only dangerous if it can inflict injury.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“You want to know why I did what I did?" His dark brows drew together as if he were only now allowing himself to consider this question. "Its fairly simple, actually. It's because, without your bravery in the face of all that's happened to you, without your constant scheming behind my back, without that fire of hatred and contempt and hope in your eyes when you look at me..." He hissed out a breath. "In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore. And, whatever the cost, I refuse to let that light be extinguished.”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
Darkness will always try to extinguish the light. The light will always try to repress the darkness.
Morgan Rhodes, Rebel Spring
“Hatred is like fire. It burns the one who harnesses it. It's also extremely hard to see more helpful truths through its flames.”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“A KISS! A KISS!" the crowd chanted.
(...)
"I dont know," Cleo began, sickened by the thought of it. How far was she willing to go to appear agreeable? "Quite honestly, it seems like a bad--"

Magnus took a tight hold of her arm and turned her around. Before she could say another word, he put his hand behind her neck, drew her closer to him, and kissed her.

Every muscle in her body stiffened. It was the sensation of being a bird caught in a hinter's trap. Her wings screamed out for her to fly away as fast and as far as possible. But he held her firmly in place, his mouth against hers, soft but demanding a response.

She gripped the front of his shirt. It was all too much--she wasn't sure if she was pushing him away or pulling him closer. Much like diving into deep water, she had no idea which way would find her air to breathe or which way would drag her down deeper into the depths where she would surely drown.

And for a moment, just a moment, she found it didn't seem to matter.

The warmth of his body against hers on such a cold day, his now-familiar scent of sandalwood, the heat of his mouth against hers...it all made her head spin, and logic fell away.”
Morgan Rhodes, Rebel Spring
“Love is stronger than anger. Love is stronger then hate-stronger than anything. Remember that.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“Her cerulean eyes widened.
"You dream about me?"
His gaze snapped back to hers.
"Nightmares only”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“It was desperate, this kiss. Violent, even.
But of course it was. It had been building up between them for such a long time, as the battle about this boy who had destroyed her life had raged inside her. This boy who had saved her life, who was cruel and kind, strong and weak. Who was selfish and selfless all at once.”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“Fear and intimidation are tactics that work very well on those who allow themselves to be afraid and intimidated.”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“This was the boy who now kissed her without reservation, as if he were dying and she was air itself.”
Morgan Rhodes, Gathering Darkness
“Those who appeared to be victims were always the easiest to victimize.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
“But you should remember that charm opens far more doors than harsh words do.” “And a sharp ax will open every door.”
Morgan Rhodes, Frozen Tides
“But she didn't fall. Someone was there, reaching an arm around her waist to steady her. She looked up expecting to see Nic, but it was Magnus.

His dark brows were drawn tightly together. "Problem, princess?”
Morgan Rhodes, Rebel Spring
