“If you ain’t scared… you ain’t human.”
“You are the shuckiest shuck faced shuck in the world!”
“Shouldn't someone give a pep talk or something?" Minho asked, pulling Thomas's attention away from Alby.
"Go ahead," Newt replied.
Minho nodded and faced the crowd. "Be careful," he said dryly. "Don't die.”
“It's kind of hard to ask a dead guy what he did wrong.”
“Just follow me and run like your life depends on it. Because it does.”
“I've been shucked and gone to heaven.”
“I promised him!" he screamed, realizing even as he did so that his voice was laced with something wrong. Almost insanity. "I promised I'd save him, take him home! I promised him!”
“Maybe you should just press the button”
“You get lazy, you get sad. Start givin' up. Plain and simple.”
“It was you and me, Tom. We did this to them. To us.”
“Holy crap, I’m scared.”
“Holy crap, you’re human. You should be scared.”
“You're the shuckiest shuck-faced shuck there ever was.”
“Thats called hypocrisy, you shuck face piece of -!”
“But there was something about the largest object in the solar system vanishing that tended to disrupt normal schedules.”
“Such a display of death - how could it be considered a victory?”
“I just...feel like I need to save everyone. To redeem myself.”
“Minho snickered and leaned back in his chair. “Man, you are one butt-load of sunshine, let me tell you.”
“If you're going to decipher a hidden code from a complex set of different mazes, I'm pretty sure you need a girl's brain running the show.”
“She smiled for the first time, and he almost had to look away, as if something that nice didn’t belong in such a glum and gray place, as if he had no right to look at her expression.”
“Shouldn't someone give a pep talk or something?' Minho asked...
"Go ahead," Newt replied.
Minho nodded and faced the crowd. 'Be careful,' he said dryly. 'Don't die.'
Thomas would have laughed if he could, but he was too scared for it to come out.
'Great. We're all bloody inspired,' Newt answered.”
“All the same, Thomas now had a plan. As bad as it was, he had a plan.
They needed more clues about the code. They needed MEMORIES.
So he was going to get stung by a Griever. Go through the Changing. On purpose.”
“She paused. That's just my way of saying I would've killed you if you'd died.”
“Ah, my Knight in Shining Armor. What, you don't think I can fend for myself?”
“I didn't do anyting wrong. All I know is I saw two people struggling to get inside these walls and they [Minho and Alby] couldn't make it. To ignore that because of some stupid rule seemed selfish, cowardly, and... well, stupid. If you want to throw me in jail for trying to save someone's [Alby] life, then go ahead. Next time I promise I'll point at them and laugh, then go eat some of Frypan's dinner. -Thomas”
“sometimes you don't look very hard for things you don't believe will or can happen.”
“Tonight, they’d make their stand, once and for all.”
“You’re disgusting when you eat,” Chuck said, sitting on the bench next to him. “It’s like watching a starving pig eat his own klunk.”
“Quit voting me down before you even think about what I'm saying.”
“While the Roman Empire was overrun by waves not only of Ostrogoths, Vizigoths and even Goths, but also of Vandals (who destroyed works of art) and Huns (who destroyed everything and everybody, including Goths, Ostrogoths, Vizigoths and even Vandals), Britain was attacked by waves of Picts (and, of course, Scots) who had recently learnt how to climb the wall, and of Angles, Saxons and Jutes who, landing at Thanet, soon overran the country with fire (and, of course, the sword).”
“How erotic Texas must be!” she said.
I was sure she had meant “exotic,” but I followed through: “Maybe, if you find cactus and deserts erotic, sensual.”
“I thought my entire life was coming apart, but I think I just realized that sometimes the thing you think is going to ruin your life is the thing that saves you.”
“He’d treated me horribly in the past, but right now…he brought color into my life. Acrylic?”
“Lessers were fewer and farther between now than ever, and there had been sightings, by others in the Brotherhood, of a very different kind of foe.”
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.
