You smell good, too,” said Patch
“It’s called a shower.” I was staring straight ahead. When he didn’t answer, I turned sideways. “Soap. Shampoo. Hot water.”
“Naked. I know the drill.” 
-Patch and Nora

 "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and then throw it in the face of the person who gave you the lemons until they give you the oranges you originally asked for"
-Jace

“Say it."
"Say what?"
"Tell me what you told me earlier."
"I love you."
"That's all I ever need to hear."
"Those three words?"
"Always those three words.” 
-Daemon and Katy

Rose: "Oh God, that's horrible. And she... she just let it happen?" 
Dimitri: "She. But I didn't." 
Rose: "Tell me, tell me you beat the crap out of him." 
Dimitri: "I did." 
Rose: "Wow. You beat up your dad. I mean, that's really horrible... what happened. But, wow. You really are a god."... 
Dimitri: "What?" 
Rose: "Uh, nothing."
-Rose and Dimitri

"Alex, I don't agree with this. You have to know that we are only looking out for what's best for you."
Hot or not, there went my tenuous grip on my temper. "I don't need you looking out for what's best for me, Aiden. I'm not a child!"
His eyes narrowed. "I of all people know you're not a child, Alex. And I sure as hell didn't treat you like one last night."
-Aiden and Alex

 
“Sometimes, I think I have made you up just to torture myself- and there are other times that I know you must be real because I couldn't have dreamed such perfection.” 
-Reed

  1. “It's suspiciously quiet in here, and there's a Tod shaped dent in the bean bag. For the sake of both my sanity and my temper, I'm going to pretend I can't tell that you're in his lap, so could you pretend that this is still my house and you are still my daughter, and I'm within my parental rights to kick your boyfriend out after 11:00 p.m.?”

  2. Clary- "how did you know I had Shadowhunter blood? Was there some way you could tell?"
    Jace- "I guessed, it seemed like the most likely explanation."
    Clary- "You guessed? You must of been pretty sure, considering you could have killed me."
    Jace- "I was ninety percent sure."
    Clary- "I see."
    Her hand cracked across his face, a slap that rocked him back on his heels.
    Jace- "What the hell was that for?"
    Clary- "The other ten percent."

    Bahahaha... I love the banter that these two have. - Cassandra Clare, City of Bones :)

  3. Ok I couldn't pick just one, and there are many more, but here a few :)


    “I want to wake up with you every morning and fall asleep beside you each night .I want to take care of you, cherish you, and love you in a way no other man ever could. I want to spoil you- every kiss, every touch, every thought, they all belong to you. I'll make you happy. Every day, I'll make you happy.” Becca Fitzpatrick, Finale

    “Her heart begins to sing to me, the Siren's song that's calling me to shipwreck. I go to it willingly. When her lips meet mine, I know I'm lost, I'm found - I'm home.”
    ― Amy A. Bartol, Incendiary

    “I saw something in you that I couldn't live without. I chose you, inside of me, and you chose me. It's not one sided, it only works when both people choose the other. You are perfect for me in every way.”
    ― Shelly Crane, Significance

    1. Woah....I may have just had a swoon-attack ! I've read both Finale and Incendiary, but after reading that quote from Significance, I think I need to check it out!

  4. I'm not sure I could really choose just one but here is one of the many... :)

    “According to the thesaurus... and according to me... there are over thirty different meanings and substitutions for
    the word
    mean.
    (I quickly yell the following words; the entire class flinches- including Will)
    Jackass, jerk, cruel, dickhead, unkind, harsh, wicked,
    hateful, heartless, vicious, virulent, unrelenting, tyrannical, malevolent, atrocious, bastard, barbarous, bitter, brutal, callous, degenerate, brutish, depraved, evil, fierce, hard, implacable, rancorous, pernicious, inhumane, monstrous, merciless, inexorable.
    And my personal favorite—asshole.”
    ― Colleen Hoover, Slammed

  5. I don't usually have favorite quotes, but I make an exception for Harry Potter :P
    Pretty much everything Dumbledore says is perfect- "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."

    1. That quote is absolutely beautiful ! Dumbledore always knows what to say :)

  6. “It’s not like love at first sight, really. It’s more like… gravity moves. When you see her, suddenly it’s not the earth holding you here anymore. She does. And nothing matters more than her. And you would do anything for her, be anything for her… You become whatever she needs you to be, whether that’s a protector, or a lover, or a friend, or a brother.” Jacob Black, Eclipse

    I tried to be a better person for her--but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I'm around you, I want to be better because...well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you're like...like light made into flesh. I said it on Halloween and meant every word: you are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth. And you don't even know it. You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.” Adrian Ivashkov, The Golden Lily

    “And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.” Jace Wayland, City of Glass

    “The thing is- and I know this is going to sound strange-that I seem to love you sort of desperately” Ash, Night World

    “I clench his hands to the point of pain. "Stay with me."
    His pupils contract to pinpoints, dialate again rapidly, and then return to something resembling normalcy. "Always," he murmurs.” Katniss and Peeta, Mockingjay

    “You're kind of blind, you know?" Puck whispered, smiling to soften his words. "I wouldn't defy Oberon for just anyone. But, for you..." He leaned forward, touching his forehead to mine. "I'd come back from the dead for you.” Puck, The Iron Daughter

  7. I absolutely love the part in divergent when Tris is asking Four why he likes her and she says "...I'm not pretty" and he laughs and says "No, you're not" . Silly and simple but it speaks so Michael about them and I actually really "lol"ed and while I do that I hate using lol
