Mafi is known for her AMAZING quotes! And Ignite Me did not disappoint! What are some of your favorites from the final book in the trilogy?

Here's one we kept reading over and over...

"Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures.
No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to becomes corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh."

Jennifer (daventry) "Good for you. I'll buy you a balloon the minute the world stops shitting on itself."

"There's a strange kind of freedom in the dark; a terrifying vulnerability we allow ourselves at exactly the wrong moment, tricked by the darkness into thinking it will keep our secrets. We forget that the blackness is not a blanket; we forget that the sun will soon rise. But in the moment, at least, we feel brave enough to say things we'd never say in the light."

Dianne (littlemisscarstairs) | 5 comments “Words are like seeds, I think, planted into our hearts at a tender age.
They take root in us as we grow, settling deep into our souls. The good words plant well. They flourish and find homes in our hearts. They build trunks around our spines, steadying us when we’re feeling most flimsy; planting our feet firmly when we’re feeling most unsure. But the bad words grow poorly. Our trunks infest and spoil until we are hollow and housing the interests of others and not our own. We are forced to eat the fruit those words have borne, held hostage by the branches growing arms around our necks, suffocating us to death, one word at a time.”

Demi (feyrearcheron) Oh gosh too many! I really liked when Warner was telling Juliette the story his mom made up about the ring his mother had told him "If you hide your heart, he will never be able to take it from you." Broke me to pieces.

Also: "Ignite, my love. Ignite."

And "I had been shackled, a prisoner in my own mind."
