Claudia Gray
“How did you learn all this?"
Vic sighed. "See, while you spend all your time making out with Balthazar, and Raquel stays holed up with her art projects, and Ranulf's off studying his Norse myths again, i do something else. Something crazy. Something strange. I call it 'talking to other people.' Through this miraculous process, I am sometimes able to learn facts about two or three other human beings in a single day. Scientists plan to study my method."
Claudia Gray, Stargazer

“I guess it's hard, being apart all the time."
"It really is. If Lucas were still here, everything would be different."
Vic's smile turned smug. "Yeah, I'd have a roommate who could beat me at chess instead of the other way around."
Ranulf never looked up from the chessboard. "I hear your insults and plan to silence them with my victory."
"Keep dreaming," Vic called.”

“Everyone is lonely," Ranulf said, but he smiled. "We have to remember that life is to be lived one day at a time. You cannot worry about past or future. Happiness is in the now."

Raquel laughed. "Vic has totally brainwashed you.”

“There's one way. Only one. Mine." Balthazar stepped closer, using every inch he had on Lucas, who was tall but not that tall. "Charity is a person. The same as you, the same as me."

"You and me aren't the same."

Balthazar cocked his head. "Then let's say the same as Bianca. Will that make you listen?"

"Bianca's no killer! She didn't have a choice about what she is."

"Guys, don't do this," I pleaded, but they paid no attention.

"A choice? You think we all get a choice?" Although Balthazar spoke softly, there was a roughness to his voice I'd never heard before. It sent chills down my spine. "Try being hunted down in the night. Try running as far and as fast as you can and finding out their faster. Try coming to in a stable, with your parents' dead bodies on the ground in front of you, your hands roped above your head and a dozen hungry vampires arguing with each other about who gets you next. See how much choice you have then."

Lucas just stared at him. Obviously he'd never imagined anything like that; neither had I.

Even more quietly, Balthazar continued, "Try watching your baby sister die, and then tell me that you wouldn't spend the rest of eternity trying to make up for it. When you've done all that, Lucas, then you can talk to me about choices. Until that time, tell me what I need to know and then shut your mouth.”

“The only one taking a risk here is me, if I get too attached to you.
It’s not risky for you, as long as you’re not confused either.”
“I’m not.”
“Of course you aren’t.” A small smile played on Balthazar’s lips.”

“...Humans talk about ''moving on'' in ways that suggest the process should begin in weeks, if not days.
...Maybe human love is different. Maybe it's weak, as variable as the weather and so as ephemeral as a breeze.”
Claudia Gray, Defy the Worlds

“Miré a Balthazar y susurré:
-Bebe mi sangre.”
Bianca Olivier en Medianoche

Claudia Gray
“Ahora sé que el dolor es una piedra de afilar. Afila tu amor, los recuerdos felices, y los convierte en hojas que te destrozan por dentro. [...] Dicen que el tiempo todo lo cura; [...] sé que es mentira. Lo que la gente quiere decir en realidad es que, con el tiempo, te acostumbras al dolor. Olvidas quién eras cuando no lo sentías, olvidas qué aspecto tenías sin las cicatrices.”
