“In every shining moment of happiness is that drop of poison: the knowledge that pain will come again. Be honest to those you love, show your pain. To suffer is as human as to breathe.”
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

“In Emma's defense, Cameron's annoying, but he's hot." Julian gave her a look. "I mean, if you like guys who look like a redheaded Captain America, which I... don't?
"Captain America is definitely the most handsome Avenger," said Cristina. "But I like the Hulk. I would like to heal his broken heart."
"We're Nephilim," said Julian. "We're not even supposed to know about the Avengers. Besides," he added, "Iron Man is obviously the best-looking.”

- Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight

“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys."
    Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”

- Sarah J. Maas, ACOMAF

“Never Flinch.' A cold whisper in her ear. 'Never fear. And never, ever forget.'
    The girl nodded slowly.
    Exhaled the hope inside.
    And she'd watched her father die.”

- Jay Kristoff, Nevernight

“Where do think the money went?" he repeated.
    "Guns?" asked Jesper.
    "Ships?" queried Inej.
    "Bombs?" suggested Wylan.
    "Political bribes?" offered Nina. They all looked at Matthias. "This is where you tell us how awful we are," she whispered.
    He shrugged. "They all seem like practical choices.”

- Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom

“They're not going to arrest you,' Skulduggery said as they walked through the door. 'They might glare at you and say angry words, but they won't arrest you. Well, they might arrest you. There's a good chance they will. But the important thing is that I've done nothing wrong.'
'For once.”

- Derek Landy, Dark Days

“I married my love in the springtime,
    but by summer he'd locked me away.
    He'd murdered me dead by the autumn,
    & by winter I was naught but decay.

    It's cold where I am and so lonely,
    but in loneliness I will remain.
    Unloved, unavenged, & forgotten,
    until I am whole once again.”

- Emily Carroll, Through the Woods
