Oh and there are tons that stick with me; good and bad.
You know those bad ones from, oh I don't know, like, the Twilight Saga novels by Stephenie Meyer.
"'And so the lion fell in love with the lamb...,' he murmured. I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word.
'What a stupid lamb,' I sighed.
'What a sick, masochistic lion.'"
- Edward and Bella
"Hey vampire girl."
- Embry Call
And again in the woods when Bella tells Edward what he is. Blah, blah, blah. Of course I loved parts of the books and watched the movies. But there is some cringe worthy moments for sure.
On the other hand you have the quotes that everyone recognizes.
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way--in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."
- Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, Book 1, Chapter 1
"What man has joined, nature is powerless to put asunder."
- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World, Ch. 2
And of course I have and love tons of quotes that I could list here but instead I'm going to list a character that has the best one-liners EVER!
Aphrodite LaFont from the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast. Like every series I love parts and I hate parts. BUT... I L.O.V.E. love Aphrodite from her b-tchy one-liner slammers to her more serious, kind ones. Mostly she's a straight up
"My cat is not insane, she's just a really good actress"
"Hey, Venus, I have two words for you, Re. Bound. Good luck with that"
"Oh for craps sake. You're not dying again, are you? It's seriously inconvenient when you do that."
“Oh for shit’s sake. This isn’t Hogwarts,”
“Well, that’s a miracle. Someone call the Vatican,”
Have a great Monday If you have signed up then you do NOT need to sign up again. It's a one time sign up Linky.
I read Twilight a long time ago, before I was doing any writing or looking at books critically. I really want to go back and read one because I've heard a lot of comments like this. About the cringe worthy stuff. I'll get to it sometime. Maybe just skim, but still.ReplyDelete
Remember when we used to call Aphrodite Aphropuff? Lol She is such a great character!ReplyDelete
I love Aphrodite, she's my favourite character in the House of Night novels. They should be about her!ReplyDelete
Fun quotes! :) I loved parts of Twilight, too.ReplyDelete
Sadly I don't think I remember any book quotes. Movies quotes - that's a different story...ReplyDelete
Bahaha the Lion and Lamb line makes me cringe too!ReplyDelete
Fun post ;)
All good quotes, Danni! Love the Lion and the Lamb, from Twilight Saga!ReplyDelete
