Noteworthy Quotes | Young Adult Edition

favorite quotes bannerSo I decided to make a couple of posts about quotes that I like. I decided to separate them into three parts: YA, adult/classics, and Harry Potter. Harry Potter gets its own post or else it would just completely take over this one. 

I can’t call this favorite quotes (this I realized after I made the banner) because I don’t always write down the quotes I like (I should start) but every once in a while I do, so these will be lists of some that I’ve stumbled upon – and actually written down! – and really loved for various reasons, maybe it’s funny, or maybe it’s beautiful, or just catchy for some other reasons.

I thought it might be a great thing to be the air.
I could be something and nothing at the same time. I could be necessary and also invisible. Everyone would need me and no one would be able to see me.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, Benjamin Alire Saenz

If he wants me broken, then I will have to be whole.
Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins

The doctor wagged a finger at her. “You should be grateful your surgeons took such care.”
“I’m sure I’ll feel much more grateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn-on.”
Cinder, Marissa Meyer

“I don’t want to screw you. I just love you. When did who you want to screw become the whole game? Since when is the person you want to screw the only person you get to love? […] People act like [sex] is the most important thing humans do, but come on. How can our sentient fucking lives revolve around something slugs can do. I mean, who you want to screw and whether you screw them? Those are important questions, I guess. But they’re not that important. You know what’s important? Who would you die for? Who do you wake up at five forty-five in the morning for even though you don’t even know why he needs you? Whose drunken nose would you pick?!”
Will Grayson, Will Grayson, John Green & David Levithan

You like someone who can’t like you back because unrequited love can be survived in a way that once-requited love cannot.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson, John Green & David Levithan

I wonder how well she sleeps at night, and what kind of dreams she has. I wish I could step into them like she steps into mine.
Warm Bodies, Isaac Marion

“But I had to go home, remember? You were supposed to say goodbye.”
“Don’t know why you… say goodbye. I say… hello.”
Warm Bodies, Isaac Marion

Are my words ever actually audible, or do they just echo in my head while people stare at me, waiting? I want to change my punctuation. I long for exclamation marks, but I’m drowning in ellipses.
Warm Bodies, Isaac Marion

The pastor is saying something about how Charlie was a free spirit. He was and he wasn’t. He was free because on the inside he was tied up in knots. He lived hard because inside he was dying. Charlie made inner conflict look delicious.
Please Ignore Vera Dietz, A. S. King

I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.
The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

But my best friend predicts I will choose the person who I think I “can’t survive without.” There’s not the least indication that love, or desire, or even compatibility will sway me. I’ll just conduct an unfeeling assessment of what my potential mates can offer me. As if in the end, it will be the question of whether a baker or a hunter will extend my longevity the most. It’s a horrible thing for Gale to say, for Peeta not to refute. Especially when every emotion I have has been taken and exploited by the Capitol or the rebels. At the moment, the choice would be simple. I can survive just fine without either of them.
-Mockingjay, Suzanne COLLINS [MY EMPHASIS]

I promised to keep on going but maybe keep on going means coming back first.
The Knife of Never Letting Go, Patrick Ness


I’m probably missing so many that should be on this list, I wish I could have just saved every quote I liked whenever I found them, but nope, too lazy for that. 

Tell me some of your favorites! 😀

    I was thinking about doing the same thing. Haha. This is a line from the book I’m currently reading.

    “You will face fears in your life, and people will try to take them from you. They’ll try to convince you what you fear isn’t real, that it’s just in your head – but you can’t let them.”
