Remember people: I love quoooootes.
Therefore, we’ll have a Quote Hunting with A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas!
Warning: SPOILERS detected, so read at your own risk!
“We are old, and cunning, and enjoy using words like blades and claws. Every word from your mouth, every turn of phrase, will be judged – and possibly used against you.”
Isn’t this how all the society, real and fictional, works?
Then the darkness vanished.
I smelled jasmine first – then saw stars. A sea of stars flickering beyong glowing pillars of moonstone that framed the sweeping view of endless snowcapped mountains.
“Welcome to the Night Court,” was all Rhys said.
A.k.a. welcome to the crazy rollercoaster of emotions you’re about to feel!
“Tamlin isn’t your keeper, and you know it.”
“I’m his subject, and he is my High Lord-”
“You are no one’s subject.”
But you’re still mine, Feyre /grin/
I’d taken to situating myself in one of the little lounges overlooking the mountains, and had almost read an entire book in the deep-cushioned armchair, going slowly as I learned new words. But it had filled my time – given me quiet, steadfast company with those characters, who did not exist and never would, but somehow made me feel less… alone.
Don’t we all feel about books the same way?
“There are good days and hard days for me – even now. Don’t let the hard days win.”
It’s as if Ron is saying the same, “Don’t let the Muggles get you down.”
“You,” I breathed, not taking my eyes from the musicians playing so skillfully that even the diners had set down their forks in the cafes nearby. “You sent that music into my cell. Why?”
Rhysand’s voice was hoarse. “Because you were breaking. And I couldn’t find another way to save you.”
AND YOU COULDN’T FIND ANOTHER WAY TO GIVE US THOSE FEEEEEEELS RHYS.
“The issue isn’t whether he loved you, it’s how much. Too much. Love can be a poison.”
And of course, this.
“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
“To the stars who listen – and the dreams that are answered.”
“Why don’t you want me to see that?”
“Because you’ve only started to look at me like I’m not a monster, and I can’t stomach the idea of anything you see tomorrow, being beneath that mountain, putting you back into that place where I found you.”
“Why does anything cling to something? Maybe they love wherever they’re going so much that it’s worth it. Maybe they’ll keep coming back, until there’s only one star left. Maybe that one star will make the trip forever, out of the hope that someday – if it keeps coming back often enough – another star will find it again.”
