Favorite Lines?

Postby Alphie » Sun Aug 17, 2008 11:59 pm

One of my all time favorite lines that Stephenie has ever written is from The Host.

You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me.

The first time I read it i got chills. The second time I read it... more chills. This line and the line Ian has about holding Wanda in his hand and how beautiful she is sealed the deal for me that I could fall in love with Ian were he a real person. Sigh...

the whole thing with the Cheetos made me laugh so hard.
There's really a long story behind that. but its pretty stupid to anyone who wasn't there

that and the one about "jared is my past you are my present" "and you future if you want" "yes please"
the "yes please" got me. it made me think of like a little kid being asked if they want candy or something :D

"But I love you," he whispered. "Doesn't that matter?"

This quote would have to be my favorite, of many another gutoes. It for sure made the chills run down my back and made the goosebumps rise. I read it a few times before continuing. By then, I was touched by how much Ian loved Wanda beyond the fact she was in Melanie's body. Ian is definetly my favorite character in the book and this quote just made me attracted to him more.

Why should we date?
Because we are attracted to each other.

The two lines above are my favorites.
I haven't really browed through the book since I finished to remember exact quotes though...
I should do that now. xD

I think I like the whole "Gone native" thing at the every end.
As well as... "You never know how much time you'll have", which was kind of a theme throughout the book.

Mine are ( if I can really remember any...)

"Isn't this world strange?"
"The strangest."
(or something like that anyway)

"You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me." I get chills just thinking about that one.

"What?" I absolutely love that one. -shivers- lol.

"Hey Ian, got anything to say to me?"
"I keep waiting for an apology."
"Keep waiting." LOL.
