“--I lifted one foot from the brackish water, and the bunny slippers were soaked and drooped pathetically. Even the fangs seemed robbed of any charm.
"Don't worry," I told it. "Someone will pay for your suffering. Heavily. With screaming."
I felt I should repeat it for the other slipper, in case there should be any bad feelings between the two. One should never create tension between ones's footwear.
--POV is Myrnin, page 221”
“In an insane world, sanity made very little sense.”
“Did you bring me a hamburger?
Did I-No,Myrnin,I didn't bring you a hamburger.Bizarre.He'd never asked for that before.
What good are you then?”
“It's not your enemies who are likeliest to hurt you. It is, always, those you trust.”
“Ah, Morganville. Where dressing to hide bloodstains was just good daily planning.”
“Knowing Myrnin, there could be anything inside, from a body he'd forgotten about to his dirty laundry.”
“I knew you'd come,Claire.I knew you would.Dear God,you took your time.”
“Well," Claire said, "at least we have tacos. Everything goes better with tacos.”
“Stop being so..."
"I'm going with arrogant.”
“I had no name for that particular hue of orange, other than unfortunate.”
“This won't stop her from getting elected," Shane said. "Stupider people get elected all the time. It's America. We love the sleazy. And the crazy." "I would like to think better of us," Claire said, "but yeah. You're right.”
“You know," I said to Michael, "my girlfriend took him down with a broken tree branch." "Too bad she isn't here," he said.”
“I'm your worst damn nightmare, Skeletor. I'm a vampire killer with fangs and a grudge.”
“One should never create tension between one's footwear.”
“When things seem calmest, that is the time you should fear the most, it's when you have the most to lose.”
“My vampire boss, who would like to maybe be my boyfriend, just dropped in to tell me he was running away because Morganville’s too dangerous.”
“I felt I should repeat it for the other slipper, in case there should be any bad feelings between the two. One should never create tension between one's footwear.”
“In an insane world, sanity made very little sense. No one expected me to live, and therefore, I did. Always.”
“Best to flee now, before the pitchforks and torches and scientists come calling.”
“Gear up, Warrior Princess. We've got some adventuring to do.”
“Are the two of you quite done with your sweet nothings? Because I might vomit.”
“A disrespectful young woman," she said. "Something I was called more than once. Something every woman of quality is called sooner or later, by a man who feels they do not know their place. As we do not, because our place is as lofty as we may aspire to climb. It is the language of men who fear women.”
“Myrnin froze, staring at her. He really was amazing, she thought; when he had that light in his eyes, it was possible to see past the crazy behavior and clothing chaos and recognize him as just…beautiful. The longing in his face was breathtaking.”
“Clarity confused me. I was far less forgiving and kind than the general state of disconnection in which I liked to live.”
“This won't stop her from getting elected...Stupider people get elected all the time. It's America. We love the sleazy. And the crazy.”
“He stepped forward and took both her hands in his cool ones. For a moment, she thought he intended to kiss her, and for a panicked moment she wasn’t sure if she ought to stop him, wanted to stop him…but then he just touched his forehead to hers and held it there.”
“My, if I didn't loathe her so much, I'd admire her.”
“Don't worry...Someone will pay for your suffering. Heavily. With screaming.”
“I never did have much, so having it rough came with the territory. I was conditioned for it.”
“The color has faded out of the sky. It is grey, becoming darker as the world turns herself round a little more. The clouds are long and black and ragged, like the wings of stormbattered dragons.”
“I’ve put my life at risk for others ever since I joined the Army. It’d be a nice change to risk my life for something I want for me." His humorless face smolders. "I crave you.”
“Dan Cahill thought he had the most annoying big sister on the planet. And that was before she set fire to two million dollars.”
“Is there some kind of rule for when Sam should be a boy and when he's a Wolf?"
"A Wolf lifts his leg and yellows up the snow. A boy has to use the toilet."
"And that will work?"
"Only if he needs to pee.”
“Fortunately, the sun has a wonderfully glorious habit of rising every morning”
BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.
We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.
Founded in 2023, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
