Favorite Quotes

Here are some of my favorite quotes by two of my favorite authors, Melina Marchetta and A.S. King. I know I'm missing some but I'll keep looking around and I'll post them next Monday. Enjoy! 

Jellicoe Road

“It's funny how you can forget everything except people loving you. Maybe that's why humans find it so hard getting over love affairs. It's not the pain they're getting over, it's the love.” 
Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

“What do you want from me?" he asks.
What I want from every person in my life, I want to tell him.
― Melina Marchetta, Jellicoe Road

“Hold my hand because I might disappear.” 
― Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

Saving Francesca

“I can't believe I said it out loud. The truth doesn't set you free, you know. It makes you feel awkward and embarrassed and defenseless and red in the face and horrified and petrified and vulnerable. But free? I don't feel free. I feel like shit.” 
― Melina Marchetta, Saving Francesca

Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles, #1)

“Be prepared for the worst, my love, for it lives next door to the best.” 
― Melina Marchetta, Finnikin of the Rock

Please Ignore Vera Dietz

“I'm sorry, but I don't get it. If we're supposed to ignore everything that's wrong with our lives, then I can't see how we'll ever make things right.” 
― A.S. King, Please Ignore Vera Dietz

Ask The Passengers

“Look, this is a loan. I don't know if love is something I will run out of one day. I don't know if I should be giving it all to you guys or not. Today, I feel like maybe I should have kept some for myself for days when no one else loves me.” 
― A.S. King, Ask The Passengers

Everybody Sees the Ants

“The world is full of assholes. What are you doing to make sure you're not one of them?” 
― A.S. King, Everybody Sees the Ants

“Listen to me. They may control what you do, but no one can pee on your soul without your permission.” 
― A.S. King, Everybody Sees the Ants

“The simplest answer is to act.” 
― A.S. King, Everybody Sees the Ants
