“He’s not feeling well,” Clary said, catching at Simon’s wrist. “We’re going.”
“No,” Simon said. “No, I — I need to talk to him. To the Inquisitor."
Robert reached into his jacket and drew out a crucifix. Clary stared in shock as he held it up between himself and Simon. “I speak to the Night’s Children Council representative, or to the head of the New York clan,” he said. “Not to any vampire who comes to knock at my door —“
Simon reached out and plucked the cross out of Robert’s hand. “Wrong religion,” he said.”

Cassandra Clare, City of Heavenly Fire

“Hope can be bruised and battered. It can be forced underground and even rendered unconscious, but hope cannot be killed.”
Neal Shusterman, UnSouled

“Land?' Froi whispered. 'You're giving them land? I'm not worth the valley.'
'You're worth a kingdom,' Finnikin said, turning back to the crowd.”

Melina Marchetta, Quintana of Charyn

“Are you out of your goddamn mind? You think we can take on two hundred soldiers? I know I am an extremely attractive man, J, but I am not Bruce Lee.”
“Who’s Bruce Lee?”
“Who’s Bruce Lee?” Kenji asks, horrified. “Oh my God. We can’t even be friends anymore.”
“Why? Was he a friend of yours?”
“You know what,” he says, “just stop. Just—I can’t even talk to you right now.”

Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me

"Na razrusha'ya. I am not ruined. E'ya razrushost. I am ruination."
Leigh Bardugo, Ruin and Rising

“Leo’s voice boomed over the loudspeaker: ‘SURRENDER! YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY ONE SPANKING HOT WAR MACHINE!’
The giant Enceladus howled in outrage. ‘Valdez!’
‘GAH!’ The giant pulled Katoptris out of his head. ‘Monsters: destroy that ship!”

Rick Riordan, The Blood of Olympus

“I'm the last one in the dark, until- suddenly- it happens. St. Clair removes something from his pocket. And then he gets down on one knee.
Anna's entire body lights with shock and joy and love. She nods a vigorous yes. St. Clair places the ring on her finger. He stands, she throws her arms around him, and they kiss. He spins her in a circle. They kiss again. Deep, hungry, long. And then he turns to us and waves- with the biggest smile I've ever seen- clearly aware that we've been standing here the whole time.”

Stephanie Perkins, Isla and the Happily Ever After

“Adrian, we hashed this out! Everything's gone perfectly until now. Why would you even think about deviating from the plan?"
"Um, because that's how we roll?”

Richelle Mead, Silver Shadows

“This is a love story. Twisted and messy. Flawed and screwed up. But it's ours. It's us. I don't know how our story will end. but I know it will start. I pick up my pen and begin to write:
My name is not Mara Dyer, but my layer told me I had to choose something.”

Michelle Hodkin, The Retribution of Mara Dyer

“You were sent here to die. You were the one that was not needed, was not wanted, and they sent you here because they knew you would never come back.”

Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty
