9 Book Quotes That Make Me Happy + That One

This post was inspired by the blogging prompt Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Its open every Tuesday with a different prompt each week.


1. 

"I didn't know if you would come."
"We're your crew, Inej. We don't leave our own at the mercy of merch scum."
"He was going to break my legs.Would you have come for me then. Kaz? When I couldn't scale a wall or walk a tightrope? When I wasn't the Wraith anymore?"
"I would have come for you. I would have come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together-knives drawn and pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting."
-Crooked Kingdom

2. 

“Jesper knocked his head against the hull and cast his eyes heavenward. “Fine. But if Pekka Rollins kills us all, I’m going to get Wylan’s ghost to teach my ghost how to play the flute just so that I can annoy the hell out of your ghost.”
Brekker’s lips quirked. “I’ll just hire Matthias’ ghost to kick your ghost’s ass.”
“My ghost won’t associate with your ghost,” Matthias said primly, and then wondered if the sea air was rotting his brain.”
-Six of Crows

3.

 "There's a drafting table in my cabin. But don't lay a finger on anything else."
"I assure you, Captain," Blake said. "My intentions are honorable."

Slate cocked his head; understanding dawned on his face. "I meant don't touch my stuff." He rolled his eyes. "I need some coffee." And then he strode off toward the hatch without a backwards glance.

But Kashmir was watching, his arms folded, standing against the door to the Captain's Cabin. As we approached, he smiled thinly. "Don't they say the road to hell is paved with honorable intentions?"
"That's good intentions." I said, making a face.
"Ah, yes. Of course." He turned the knob and opened the door with a flourish. "But perhaps Mr. Hart can go to hell anyway."
 -The Girl From Everywhere

4.

“Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you'll meet a boy who will learn your favorite flower, your favorite song, your favorite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won't matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart.”
-Six of Crows

5.

I've always tried to resemble a brave man.

It didn't used to be this hard-and I've had so much practice pretending. After all, when you're a thief, you're always pretending to not be. The same is true when you're poor. And sometimes also when you're in love.

I still don't know how it happened. Usually I'm better at guarding what little I have. But one day, I went looking for my heart and found it in Nix's hands.
-The Ship Beyond Time

6.

“What is a Gallagher Girl?" Liz asked one final time. "She's a genius, a scientist, a heroine, a spy. And now we are at the end of our time at school, and the one thing I know for certain is this: a Gallagher Girl is whatever she wants to be.” 
-United We Spy
Every time I read Liz's graduation speech, I get tingles up and down my spine.

7.
“If you had not done such a shabby thing to me I would not have had you kidnapped.” 
-Faro's Daughter

8.

"Nicky-poo escaped."
-Gemina

10.

“One to be a murderer. One to be a Martyr. One to be a Monarch. One to go Mad”
-Heartless


[Ok, there are two reasons I chose this quote. #1: I named Keria's four daggers after. (from my story In A Dream, a rewrite of Sleeping Beauty WITH ASSASSINS) Her dagger names are Insanity, Vengeance, Misery, and Silence. (Vengeance and Insanity are to long fighting blades and Misery and Silence are the two boot knives.)

I always say them in that order, but if you want them in the same order as the quote then they're: 
Vengeance, Silence, Misery, and Insanity. 

The other reason is for all you people out there who have read Heartless. Because I'm evil.]

What quotes make you happy/have meaning to you ?

  1. Ahh, love all the quotes from Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom! I love this quote from the Raven King (even tho the books are full of #issues, the writing style is beautiful): "Dream me a world, something new for every day."
    Also, I have a ton of favorite quotes from all the Harry Potter books. :))
    Great post!

    6. Two poisonous substances - what resilience!

    7. Wow, that was just cold. So rude, MK. I mean, first the quote and now just a description. I can't even look at you right now. Never mind the fact that I literally can't look at you. *crosses arms and looks away*

      (Jk, I find this amusing AND painful. XD)

    8. I thought she also drank the blood of enemies... Wasn't that in a post somewhere? XD

      Delete
    9. She mixes the blood of her enemies in with her coffee. It's very nutritious.

    10. Good gracious. We're reading the scribblings of a psychopath.

      Delete
    11. I suppose I should do my research.

      Delete
    12. And I drink the blood of my enemies with my orange juice. Its how I get my iron.

      Delete
    13. It is a good way to get iron, isn't it?

      On second thought, I probably shouldn't have said that.

      Delete
    14. Don't encourage her!! XD

      I think a sociopath is a person who has no emotion...wait.

      Is the sarcasm a disguise to brainwash us into trusting her???

      Delete
    15. Psychopaths have no morals. Sociopaths have morals, but ignore them.

      Delete
    16. Well this escalated quickly

      Delete
    17. I'm honestly not sure whether to stay and talk sense into her, or to run in terror. And yes, it did escalate quickly - no surprise there. :D

      Delete
    18. Well... I don't know if there's it would be possible to talk sense into her. Maybe just back away slowly. Running might cause her to chase you.

      Delete
    19. Oh, good point. If I climb a tree, do you think I could talk sense to her from there?

      Delete
    20. I'm confused? Why a tree? Am I super tall? (I mean yeah...I'm 5'11 and wear 3 inch heels all the time, but come on. It's not that bad)

      Delete
    21. Backing away slowly and climbing a tree are both bear avoidance measures, and you seem at least as dangerous and hungry. (And, holy cow, you're tall! I'm jealous. Way to own your height, though!)

      Delete
    22. *sobs because you compared me to a bear and I am a sleek cat*

      Now I sound kind of like someone who wears heels 24/7...which isn't quite me.

      Delete
    23. Fine. Bearcat then. *tries to comfort you*

      I'm just impressed that people can actually walk in heels . . . I'm a public menace in flats.

      Delete
  4. Ugh, that was very Heartless. Sheesh, MK. That Six of Crows quote, though . . . XD Best part!!

    1. Everytime I hear/read the Kaz one, I get tingles up and down my spine.

      The Mr. Hart one always makes me laugh and then I feel a little guilty for laughing...but not so much after A Ship Beyond Time

      Delete
  7. Well, I'm late to the party, but... NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. How could you remind me of Heartless and that beautiful boy???!!! *sobs heart out*
