“What's a dementor?"
I mean, I can't even. "Nora, you are no longer my sister."
"So it's some Harry Potter thing," she says.” 
Becky Albertalli, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

“Every story needs its hero. And its villain. And its monster.” 
Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff, Obsidio

“But you, Helene Aquilla, are no swift-burning spark. You are a torch against the night - if you dare to let yourself burn.”
Sabaa Tahir, A Torch Against the Night

“You're a very difficult person to manipulate, you know."
"Nonsense," he said. "You just have to promise me that I won't have to do a thing, and then I'll do anything you want."
"Anything?"
"Anything that doesn't require doing anything."
"That's nothing, then."
"Is it?"
"Yes."
"Well, that's something.” 
Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker

“Authors also create lovable, friendly characters, then proceed to do terrible things to them, like throw them in unsightly librarian-controlled dungeons. This makes readers feel hurt and worried for the characters. The simple truth is that authors like making people squirm. If this weren't the case, all novels would be filled completely with cute bunnies having birthday parties.” 
Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians


“I apologize for anything I might have done. I was not myself.”
“I apologize for shooting you in the leg.” said Lila. “I was myself entirely.” 
V.E. Schwab, A Darker Shade of Magic

“I know where you sleep, Bard." She smirked. "Then you know I sleep with knives.” 
V.E. Schwab, A Gathering of Shadows

“She was a thief, a runaway, a pirate, a magician.
She was fierce, and powerful, and terrifying.
She was still a mystery.
And he loved her.” 
V.E. Schwab, A Conjuring of Light

“Where her books were, she was. Get the books right and the rest will follow. Now she could address the rest of the room.” 
Maureen Johnson, Truly Devious

“Kinder than is necessary. Because it's not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed.” 
R.J. Palacio, Wonder

“Breathing in the ink and feeling all those wonderful lives beneath you fingertips. In between the pages, I'm an emperor. An adventurer. A warrior and a wanderer. In between pages I'm not myself-and more myself than in any other place on earth.” 
Jay Kristoff, Lifel1k3

“Every good story needs a villain.
But the best villains are the ones you secretly like.” 

Stephanie Garber, Legendary

“I'm not going to die," she said. "Not till I've seen it."
"Seen what?"
Her smile widened. "Everything.” 
V.E. Schwab, A Darker Shade of Magic
