Here ares some of my favourite quotes from my recent read:
#2: Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Click title for review)
As always there may be some spoilers. Enjoy!
“My bare hands, obviously.”
“I love you,” I say.
"That's why you like me!" I exclaim. "Because you're not very nice either! It makes so much more sense now.”
“Who cares about everyone? What about me?”
I think we cry to release the animal parts of us without losing our humanity. Because inside of me is a beast that snarls, and growls, and strains toward freedom, toward Tobias, and, above all, towards life. And as hard as I try, I cannot kill it.”
Lynn goes silent, like she recognizes that as a spark of brilliance but can’t bring herself to admit it.
“What’s this about flashing underwear?” says Uriah, sidestepping a bunk. “Whatever it is, I’m in.”
"Aren't I always?"
"No, I think the word for how you usually are is 'reckless.”
"Yep. Figured it would be harder for anyone to shoot me if they saw how devastatingly attractive I was...”
"Then how do you explain all the Abnegation children?" Tobias raises his eyebrows.
"They are brought into being by sheer force of will," the woman on the arm of the chair interjects. "Didn't you know that, Tobias?"
"No, I wasn't aware." He grins. "My apologies.”
“I almost always wish that,” I say.”
"Does now seem like the time for honesty?"
I look at her from the corner of my eye. "I think they're going to force us to eat lots of cake and then take an unreasonably long nap.”
I shove him as hard as I can. 'Take that back. Take it back now.'
'Okay, okay!' He puts up his hands. 'It's just... I'm not very nice either, you know. That's why I like you so - '
'Out!' I shout, pointing at the door.
Laughing to himself, Tobias kisses my cheek and leaves the room.”
“You have a nice voice,” I say.
“Tris,” he says, “please be quiet.”
“We had fizzy drninks,” he says.
“Ah, but did you have a ledge overlook an underground river?” says Marlene, waggling her eyebrow. “Or a room where you faced all your nightmares at once?”
“No,” says Caleb, “and to be honest, I’m kind of okay with that.”
“Si-ssy,” sings Marlene.
