Arielle Rae Aguilar | 21 comments Oh this is hard... There are just so many! Here are some that I can remember right now

“You’re in my every breath and every thought, intertwined so deep inside me that love’s not a strong enough word—you have my devotion, your name branded on my soul, my wolf yours to command. A hundred years? It’ll never be enough. I want eternity.”
― Nalini Singh, Kiss of Snow

“It's easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you'd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it's lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

“I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came...and I was awakened.”
― J.R. Ward, Lover Awakened

“My beloved is the sun
And I am the earth that thrives only in her warmth.
My beloved is the rain
And I am the grass that thirsts for her quenching kiss.
My beloved is the wind
And I am the wings that soar when she fills me with her gentle strength.
My beloved is the rock
Upon which rests the happiness of all my days.
—The Elements of Love, a poem by Aileron v'En Kavali of the Fey”

― C.L. Wilson, Lord of the Fading Lands

Oh Oh and I completely agree with this one XD

“He held up his index finger. "Rule one: in any dispute between mates, the
male is always to blame, even when he is clearly blameless. Rule two"—his middle finger joined the
first—"whenever in doubt, refer to rule one.”

― C.L. Wilson, Lord of the Fading Lands

Jessica (studioeastrat) | 571 comments Some of my favorites are:

“You are the woman of my heart. The one I have been awaiting the whole of my life, though I didn't know it until I spied you. there isn't one thing that makes you special to me, but all things...”
― Gena Showalter, The Nymph King

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
― Jane Austen, Pride And Prejudice

“When in doubt, blame the dark elves.”
― Kevin Hearne, Trapped

“Never run from one such as me, female. You will no’ get away - and we like it.”
― Kresley Cole, A Hunger Like No Other

“As Lothaire lifted the lid with a sense of dread, Nïx murmured, “Hint: it’s the middle one.”
Elizabeth’s fragile finger.Seeing it severed like this brought on a visceral reaction—pain shooting through his own hand, radiating throughout his regenerated heart. He closed the lid with a swallow, sentimentally pocketing the package.
“You gave her your heart, and she gave you the bird.” Nïx sighed. “Songs will be written about this.”
― Kresley Cole, Lothaire

“Eric was holding my hands, and I was digging my nails into him like we were doing something else. He won't mind, I though, as I realized I'd drawn blood. And sure enough, he didn't. "Let go," he advised me, and I loosened my grip on his hands. "No, not of me," he said smiling. "You can hold on to me as long as you want.”
― Charlaine Harris, Club Dead

I haven't gotten up to. Lothaires book in the IAD series, but now, after reading that quote, I'll be wondering what's happening! It'll drive me crazy

I think I'm close. I just finished Rydstroms book


❤Stephanie ღ♥ღMrs Hannibal Lecterღ♥ღ My favourite quote is

“Ara?"
She jerked her face up. "Huh? Where were we?"
But his expression had grown serious, the lesson forgotten. He interlaced his fingers and said, "We are bound."
"Bound?"
He collected a piece of rope, knotting it.
"Oh, you mean bound?"
He gave a nod, then drew in the sand.
An infinity symbol? "Clever demon, how did you know that...?"
He was gazing at her with a question in his eyes.
"Bound forever?" And somehow she met his gaze and lied, "Yes, demon. Bound forever."
As if to make her feel guiltier, he gathered her into his arms, cupping her face against his broad chest. His voice a deep rumble, he said, "Carrow is Malkom's."
She wanted to sob.
"Yes?"
"Yes," she answered, wishing that it could be so simple between them. Demon meets girl. Girl might be falling for demon.”
― Kresley Cole, Demon from the Dark

"When you get back, I'm going to cover myself in whiskey and nothing else. Then I'll pour gin all over you. We're going to drink from each other, in every possible way."

Jessica (studioeastrat) | 571 comments “Kitten, you need to make a decision. Either we stay here and behave or we leave now and I promise you”—his voice dipped lower and the words fell against my lips—“if we leave, I won’t behave.”

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments Q: "If you can't improve the silence, you shouldn't be speaking."

If you are participating in the League contest, what I need from you is to tell me not only who said this quote but which book it came from in your answer.

In further quote questions, you might also have to ID two people who are talking. So keep that in mind too.

Clue: I'm feeling like greeting and learning something new about someone. Where's the best place to meet new friends?


message 15: by Arielle Rae (last edited Jun 23, 2014 02:20AM) (new)

Arielle Rae Aguilar | 21 comments I finished reading Styxx recently and every time I hear this quote, it makes my heart ache

"Brothers, forever and always."
- Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon


message 16: by Dhfan4life, Honey Bun (new)

Dhfan4life | 10411 comments I hear ya Arielle Rae. As well as the one about(and I'm sure I'll get this wrong as I don't readily have it in front of me to do a verbatim on it) but the on where it goes something like, Just because you are having a bad day doesn't mean mine isn't any worse. Which I felt was fitting for both of them to be honest. As they were both the same side of the unfortunate coin so to speak.


message 17: by Arielle Rae (last edited Jun 23, 2014 03:53AM) (new)

Arielle Rae Aguilar | 21 comments Yeha, I know which one you mean, and I agree with you
Here's another one along the same lines that I think is a great one

"There are three sides to every story: yours, theirs, and the truth somewhere in the middle."

There's also this one

"Every man, woman, and child is capable of extreme and utter prejudice and cruelty when they feel justified in their hatred. Right or wrong. We are all capable of lashing out when we're in pain. No one, not even your or I, is immune to that. As Plato said, be kind to everyone you meet for we are all fighting difficult battles."


I swear, I got wiser just by reading Styxx


message 18: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Smith | 16 comments When you love someone....truly love them, friend or lover, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt. You literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut the deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul.
Acheron

And this is why I so love SK's books. Because I've often felt and thought similar things. But in real time other people have given me the hairy eyeball and be like what are you talking about or whatever?

Nette | 202 comments "If you-Rule, for God's sake, watch where you're going!" "I am," he said, passing a tanker truck that worried her. Lilly was cursing under her breath. He glanced at her, and his pleasure(fast driving)fled. "I'll slow down. You're pale." "I turn Caucasian at ninety miles an hour and up. Pay no attention."

This is one of many scenes with
these two characters, Rule and Lilly Yu, who's Chinese, that crack me up...lol.

"Grandmother always said that the canard about death and taxes left out another inevitability: politics. Two people will fight, play cards, or make love. Three, and someone's going to start playing with the angels."

"Every time two people fall in love, there's a collision-the need to blend furniture, jobs, beliefs...and families. A permanent bond between a couple means their families are joined, too, for better or worse."

Mortal Sins - Eileen Wilks

This is so true and hits dead on about the for better or worse part...lol

"Blorft" is an adjective I just made up that means "Completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possom" - Tina Fey, Bossypants

Marie | 1447 comments ...it felt pretty demeaning when they called it a "female comedy." ... They don't make "men's comedies." They don't ask Ben Stiller, "Hey, Ben, what was your message for all male-kind when you pretended to have diarrhea and chased that ferret in Along Came Polly?" - Amy Schumer, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo

What Darwin was too polite to say, my friends, is that we came to rule the earth not because we were the smartest, or even the meanest, but because we have always been the craziest, most murderous motherfuckers in the jungle. - Stephen King, Cell

Marie | 1447 comments What a strange constellation they all were - Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven King

I don't care to be pretty...I care to look on the outside like I look on the inside. - Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven King

Honestly, I absolutely love this author. She isn't just a writer, she's a storyteller. I mean, just read the three next quotes and see! Have you ever read such eloquent and beautiful character descriptions?

Gansey had once told Adam that he was afraid most people didn't know how to handle Ronan. What he meant by this was that he was worried that one day someone would fall on Ronan and cut themselves. - Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven Boys

When Gansey was polite, it made him powerful. When Adam was polite, he was giving power away. - Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven Boys

It wasn't that Henry was less of himself in English. He was less of himself out loud. His native language was thought. - Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven King


message 26: by Marie (new)

Marie | 1447 comments Meeting you was a disaster. ... But I am grateful for that disaster. I needed a catastrophe to shake me from the life I knew. You were an earthquake, a landslide ... You aren't a flower, you're every blossom in the wood blooming at one. You are a tidal wave. You're a stampede. You are overwhelming. - Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom

On our wedding night... I will cut out your tongue and swallow it. Then both tongues that spoke our marriage vows will belong to me, and I will be wed only to myself. You will most likely choke to death on your own blood, which will be unfortunate, but I will be both husband and wife and therefore not a widow to be pitied. - Kiersten White, And I Darken
