What is love? No words can define it.
The three leaves of the iris represent faith, wisdom, and valor. Iris flowers have three petals often called the standards and three outer petal-like sepals called the falls. It has been a symbol of royalty and divine protection for centuries throughout the world. During the 5th Century, the iris was used for various purposes, including art, where Clovis, King of pagan Franks, created banners to illustrate royal standards for his subjects. Also, Indian and Egyptian cultures used the flower in art to depict life and resurrection.
The Fleur-de-Lis, a stylized Iris motif has symbolized France since the 13th century. It was also used by the monarchs of France to decorate their royal robes, furnishings and walls. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty and is said to signify perfection, light, and life. Legend has it that an angel presented Clovis, the Merovingian king of the Franks, with a golden lily as a symbol of his purification upon his conversion to Christianity. Others claim that Clovis adopted the symbol when waterlilies showed him how to safely cross a river and succeed in battle. In the 12th century, King Louis VI became the first French monarch to use the fleur-de-lis on his shield. The iris f"ound its way onto England's coat of arms British Royal Arms, after King Edward III laid claim to the French crown. English kings later used the symbol on their coats of arms to emphasize their claims to the throne of France. In the 14th century, the fleur-de-lis was often incorporated into the family insignia that was sewn on the knight's surcoat, which was worn over their coat of mail, thus the term, coat of arms. Joan of Arc carried a white banner that showed God blessing the French royal emblem, the fleur-de-lis, when she led French troops to victory over the English in support of the Dauphin, Charles VII, in his quest for the French throne.
The Roman Catholic Church ascribed the lily as the special emblem of the Virgin Mary. Due to its three petals, the fleur-de-lis has also been used to represent the Holy Trinity.
Military units, including divisions of the United States Army, have used the symbol's resemblance to a spearhead to identify martial power and strength.
The Fleur-de-lys was originally named the fleur-de-Louis, after Louis VII, in 1147 A.D. Through time, it changed to fleur-de-luce which means flower of light, to finally be known as today's version, the fleur-de-lys which means, flower of the lily.
Irises are also known as flags or sword flags, relating them to symbols of heraldry and royalty. In Japan it expresses heroism and the blue colour refers to blue blood, so irises play a key role in the Japanese spring festival for boys.
Irises are depicted in the still life paintings of the Dutch masters and Vincent van Gogh.
As a sacred flower, the Iris was credited with healing powers and was used in ancient medicine. In the first century AD, the Greek physician Dioscorides recommended iris root drunk with honey, vinegar or wine for coughs, colds, indigestion and sciatica. The root of the iris is used to make fragrances, and potpourri.
Iris is the National flower of France and has been used for the insignia and emblem of France. It has a vase life of 4 to 5 days.
The Greek word Iris means rainbow. and the center of your eye. Hence Ash Redfern's eyes. Or Maya.

Soulmates: A Poem by Sydney (The Bird is the Word)
That's the infinite feeling of having you around.
Every time I look into your eyes I fall to the ground
I can't help this fact, but it's true.
I'll never be complete without you
Whenever you touch my hand
I get the feeling up my arm and down my legs.
You're my other half, part of my soul
I just wanted to let you know.
It's humming so close.
Reaching from my heart to yours
I can see that you feel it too
These waves of sweetness don't go unnoticed by you
I have only one word to sum it all up, it can never be broken, not by death
Or by anyone else.

Night World quotes
James x Poppy
“Many people thought Poppy and James’s relationship was platonic. This wasn’t true. Poppy had known for years that she was going to marry him. It was one of her two great ambitions, the other being to see the world. She just hadn’t gotten around to informing James yet.” (p.9)
“Cliff said ‘damn’ for me (I’m going to die). I didn’t know he liked me enough to swear.” (Poppy p. 47)
“Until today she’d assumed it was her unconditional right to live. She hadn’t even been grateful for the privilege. But now she knew it wasn’t something to take for granted—and she also knew it was something she’d fight for.” (Poppy p. 63)
"She had never been so close to anybody. It was as if they were one being, together, not predator and prey, but partners in a dance." (Poppy-and-James p. 67)
"You don't love a girl because of beauty. You love her because she sings a song only you can understand." (James p.68)
“Poppy’s not my girlfriend and I’m not going to dump her,” he said, pleased at his own cleverness. He’d avoided an outright lie—Poppy wasn’t his girlfriend in any normal sense. They’d merged their souls, that was all—they hadn’t talked about dating or anything. (James p. 77)
“Your cousin Ash will be coming next week. I think he’d like to stay with you at the apartment—and I’m sure you’d like some company there.”
“Poppy had hardly eaten in the last two days, and when she did get hungry, it was for something weird. No—something red, he realized as he paid for a second time at the 7-Eleven. He felt a sick lurch in his stomach. Everything she wanted lately was red and at least semiliquid.” (Phil p. 115)
“I wasted a lot of high school, Poppy realized. I used my brains to outsmart the teachers—and that really wasn’t very smart at all.” (p. 133)
“My first kiss. Poppy thought, her eyes drifting shut again. And I’m comatose. Great.” (p. 142)
“I don’t look like something that sits on a buttercup anymore she thought. I look wild and dangerous and exotic. Like a model. Like a rock star. Like James.” (Poppy p. 181)
"I'll go sleep on the couch," he said.
Poppy thumped the bed with her heel. “And obviously we don’t have to sleep in coffins.”
She blurted, “I don’t see how you people can make laws about not falling in love! It’s insane.” (Poppy p. 199)
"It was like a song, one of those sweet, wrenching songs that makes the hair on your arms stand up. That makes you want to throw yourself on the floor and just bawl. Or fall backward and surrender to the music utterly." (p. 184)
"I told you. You don't love someone because of their looks or their clothes or their car. You love them because they sing a song that nobody but you can understand." (James p. 184)
"In the Night World there's this idea called the soulmate principle. It says that every person has one soulmate out there, just one. And that person is perfect for you and is your destiny." (James p. 184)
“Just remember,” he said whimsically. Bad magic happens.” (Ash p.156)
She made a forlorn and helpless gesture. “But what can I do now? I can’t change the past. . . .”
“You’re sure you’re all right?”
“I don’t know who you are or what horse you rode in on. But that’s my sister there you’re messing with, and I figure I’ve got the first right to knock your head off.” (Phil p. 231
“You know, you’ve never really cared about anyone,” he said. “But someday you will, and it’s going to hurt. It’s going to hurt--a lot. (James to Ash p. 232)
“James, pull over the car I want to kiss you.” (Poppy p. 237)
Ash x Mary lynnette
“Welcome to Briar Creek, where nothing ever happens. Where there are more coyotes than people. Where if you really want some excitement you can ride into town and watch the Saturday night mouse racing at the Gold Creek Bar. . . .” (Mark p. 248)
“What are you doing out here so late?” Vic asked. "It’s not the place for nice girls.”
Quinn’s lip curled. “Lamia are so wonderfully family oriented.”
“That’s one thing I can count on,” Quinn said half under his breath. “Your self-interest. You always look after Number One, don't you?”
"Look, I’ll fight, too. What do you think it is? Bears, coyotes. . . . ?"
“Mary-Lynnette had an inexplicable impulse to knock Ash flat and fall down on top of him. She’d never felt that for any boy before. She ignored the impulse and kicked him in the shin.” (p. 320)
“Mare, it’s like now I know why I’m alive. She’s different from any girl I’ve ever known. She’s—she’s so brave, and so funny, and so . . . herself.” (Mark about Jade p. 346)
“Don’t you just hate that,” Mark was saying. “You meet a girl and she seems pretty nice and you tell all your friends and then before you know it she turns out to be a vampire. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?” (p. 358)
“Mary-Lynnette knew that in that instant they were communicating without words. Each recognizing the other as an alpha female who was willing to fight and die for her kin.
"When you're soulmates, it hits you like lightning, and you know that's the one person in the world you were meant to be with. You don't think you're soulmates; you just know it's your destiny whether you like it or not." (Kestrel p. 362)
“being soulmates is involuntary—you don’t even have to like the person when you meet them. They may be completely wrong for you in every way—wrong species, wrong temperament, wrong age. But you know you’ll never be completely happy again without them." (Rowan p. 377)
"I don't have to kill goats to say things, you know. I can talk." (Ash p. 398)
“Mary-Lynnette didn’t know what to say. What’s the etiquette when you’ve just discovered that somebody’s a werewolf? And that it may be their duty to eat you?” (p. 420)
“Wait—you think I did. Don't you?"
"Look. . . . I might as well tell you. I didn’t ask for this, and if somebody had said last week that I'd be in. . . involved. . . with a human, I'd have knocked his head off. I mean, after howls of derisive laughter. But." (Ash to Mary-Lynnette p. 428)
“If Ash were dead—if Ash had been killed . . .
"Well, she thought. Well, well. Here we are, probably for the first time, just talking to each other. Not arguing, not being sarcastic, just talking. It's nice.
“You know, somebody told me this would happen,” Ash said, as if carrying on some entirely different conversation they’d been having.
“But” Ash continued doggedly, "the thing is—and I know this is going to sound strange—that I seem to love you sort of desperately." (Ash p. 445)
“I don’t suppose you could turn into a bat or something and fly back,” she suggested.
“And in the meantime I’ll fight dragons, just like any knight for his lady. I’ll prove myself. You’ll be proud of me.” (Ash p. 482)
"Even when we're apart, we'll be looking at the same sky!" Ash yelled.
“Tell me,” she said grimly, “that you’re not going to do the same thing here.”
“You’re . . . beautiful,” Eric said, still wondering. “I’ve never seen anybody . . . but it’s like there’s a mist all around you. You’re so mysterious. . . .” (Eric p. 505)
“Well two wrongs don't make a right. . . .”
“And by Air and Fire, I'm not having them come here just
“She's in a bad mood,” Rosamund said. “And she's not eating right.
“We knew each other; it was as if we each could see the other one’s soul. Once you see into someone’s soul, you’re attached forever.” (Thea p. 569)
“I don't care much for animals unless they've been shish-kebabed.” (Blaise p. 571)
“It's so much fun to be a bitch when you want to be.” (Blaise p. 573)
“Blaise, listen to me. If you do anything to him—if you hurt him—it’s me you’re hurting.”
"I can take any boy from anybody. Any time, any place, any way I want to. That's what I do." (Blaise p. 578)
“I don't understand why you want to be crones before you're done being maidens. You ought to enjoy your youth while you have it. . . .” (Grandma Harman p. 592)
“When I go after a boy, I get him first. I don’t strangle them before the fun begins.” (Blaise p. 609)
“She did it with a vampire? Creepy.” (Dani p. 618)
“How could I want to be with her when I want to be with you? I told you that before this whole thing started.” (Eric p. 637)
“Because that was the thing about Blaise. She might be vain and self-centered, quarrelsome, hot-tempered, lazy, unkind to humans, and generally hard to live with, but she came through for family. She was a witch.” (p. 656)
“Does everybody ever want everything they can have? Really?” (Blaise p. 659)
“Whatever you're doing,” he said with terrible distinctness, “to try to make me like Pilar, it has to stop. Because it's not fair to her. She's upset right now because I'm acting crazy. But I don't want to be with her. It's you I love. And if you want to get rid of me, then tell me, but don't try to foist me off on somebody else.” (Eric p. 666)
“Maybe there was a magic stronger than spells. Maybe the soulmate principle was responsible, and if two people were meant to be together, nothing could keep them apart.” (p. 672)
“Would you give up everything
“By the power of Earth and Air and Water! By the power of Fire on this night of Hecate! By my own power as a Daughter of Hellewise! Go speedily, conveniently and without delay, you bitch.” (Thea p. 707)
“I know I love Thea,” Eric said cutting her off. “And she loves me. And if there’s some rule that says we can’t be together, it’s a stupid rule.” (p. 712)
"The paths to enlightenment are many Grasshopper. Grasshopper? Maybe I should call you Dragonfly. You are sort of iridescent. There're lots of other insects, but Dung Beetle sounds sort of insulting. . . .” (Angel p. 51)
“Balaam's ass,” the angel said wisely.
“If he were a knight, he wouldn’t fall in love with the pampered princess back at the castle. He’d fall in love with a female knight, or maybe a robber, somebody who could share the Adventure with him, who’d be just as tough as he was.” (Gillian about David p. 69)
“You’re kind of incredible,” David said. “And I feel really stupid for not noticing that before.” (p. 70)
“What she felt was a little like discovery and a little like déjà vu and a little like waking up and suddenly realizing it’s Christmas. Or like being a kid lost in a strange place, cold and bewildered, and then suddenly hearing your mother’s voice. But it really wasn’t like any of those things; it was more. Unexpected welcome. . . strange recognition . . . the shock of belonging . . .” (Gillian p. 71)
“Rule One, dragonfly. A beautiful girl can tease any guy and make him like it. No matter what the joke is. Am I right or am I right?” (Angel p. 81-82)
“Rumors spread fast, and they grow. I know. You want to either deny them, or” —Daryl’s lips quirked in a smile—disarm them.” (p. 93)
“You have no idea what I'll do if you try to mess with me, you snotty little midget. You are going to be sorry—” (Tanya p. 98)
“And what about Kim? Is she the one who has been spreading rumors about people?”
“Hey, Jill, this is for you.” Cory was trying to give her a plastic glass with foam overflowing the top.
“You look...” He shook his head. “Illegal, but also sort of spiritual. How do you do that?” (David p. 106)
“Thanks but I like my brain cells. Maybe if you had more respect for yours you wouldn’t be flunking biology.” (p. 108)
“It sounded crazy, Gillian thought, but it wasn’t physical so much as . . . well, spiritual. They seemed to belong together.” (p. 112)
“It's voodoo time, huh?” (Gillian p. 132)
“Now . . . may I be given the words of Hecate. It is not I who utter them, it is not I who repeat them; it is Hecate who utters them, it is she who repeats them.”
“I’ll bet you could start a little bears fashion at school. You can do anything with enough guts.” (Angel p.140)
“I met a human girl last summer,” he said quietly and that seemed to explain everything. (Ash p. 153)
“There are two ways of getting spirits from the between-place: you can summon them or you can go fetch them yourself. You did it the hard way.” (Melusine p. 182)
“An earthbound spirit is a damaged soul. . . .” She shut the book. “Look, it’s actually simple. When a spirit is really unhappy—when they've done something awful, or they've died with unfinished business—then they don't go on to the Other Side. They get stuck in—well, the book calls it ‘the astral planes near earth’. We call it the between-place.” (Melusine p. 182)
“And the Harmans are—well, they’re sort of like the royal family to us.”
“I’m not strong. I’m scared.”
“Maybe. . . some angels are real.” (Gillian p. 209)
“I know,” Rashel said. “You really, really wanted to kill me. Life's tough, isn't it?” (p. 232)
“This kitten has claws.” (Rashel p. 233)
Instead of answering, Rashel said, “The night has a thousand eyes.”
“If you cut them with a steel knife they heal right before your eyes—but cut them with wood and they keep bleeding.” (Vicky p. 240)
“Wait here, I'm going to bonk him on the head.” (Rashel p. 248)
“Sorry,” she said out loud. “I don’t take orders from parasites.” (Rashel p. 257)
“And you’re right, this is the way it always has to end when our two races meet. It's kill or be killed. The law of nature.” (Quinn p. 259)
Quinn laughed sourly. “Yes, well, that’s an on-again, off-again thing. You might say I have a love-hate relationship with the Redferns. We spnd most of the time wishing each other at the bottom of the Atlantic.”
“I don’t need a damn psychoanalysis,” he spat. (Quinn p. 264)
“Don't you ever use doors.” (Daphne p. 287)
“Oh, my God! You're Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” (Daphne p. 288)
“You’re wearing normal clothes.”
There's warmth in ice, there's cooling peace in fire,
“Just reminiscing about the old days in the sunlight. Of course, you wouldn’t know anything about that, would you? You’re lamia; you were born this way. Technically, I suppose, you were born dead.”
“Take your hands off her. Before I knock you through the wall.” (Quinn p. 337)
“I'm a damned Daybreaker.” (Fayth p. 351)
“Circle Daybreak is a group of witches who’re trying to get humans and Night People to . . . I don’t know, all dance around and drink Coke together,” Rashel said, nonplussed. (p. 351-352)
“But watch the language or I'll leave you here when I get the rest of us out. Then you can live in harmony with eight vampires on your own.” (Rashel p. 352)
“Every time I meet you, I seem to end up hog-tied and unconscious. It's getting monotonous.” (Quinn p. 388-389)
“You were strong, you weren’t weak and pathetic. You weren’t looking for your own destruction. But you were going to let me go. Strength and compassion. And . . . honor. Of course I loved you.” (Quinn p. 390)
“I think we live or die together from now on, Quinn said simply.” (p. 401)
“When violence won’t work, there’s no other choice but to try persuasion.” (Quinn p. 402)
“Raise your hands everybody who thinks Hunter Redfern would approve of this little party.”
But the soulmate idea--that's really the last straw. It's like a disease infecting our people. You understand
“Where could a reformed vampire and a burned-out vampire hunter go when they fell in love?
“Because I’m going crazy.”
“Has it ever occurred to you,” he blurted, “that you may not be paranoid after all? I mean, that something weird and uncanny really is out to get you?” (Paul p. 453)
You buy an eight-hundred-dollar pen and then it doesn't write,” he murmured. (Thierry p. 457)
“He's wicked and evil. . . I know that. She explained it all to me. And I know he'll kill me.
“Funny Thierry thought, how you never realize how accustmed you were to being obeyed until someone defied you.” (p. 472)
“To Thierry, it was beautiful, because it was part of her. But at the same time the very sight of it made his throat clamp shut and his fists clench in helpless grief and fury—fury against himself. The mark was his shame, his punishment. And his penance was to watch her wear it in her innocence through the years.” (p. 473)
“He wanted to carry her off into the night, holding her close to his heart, to some secret place where nobody could ever find her to hurt her.” (Thierry p. 474)
“He's Lord of the Night World. He's powerful. . . and evil.” Hannah whispered. “He's lived for thousands of years.” She added almost absently, “I'm the one who's been reincarnated.” (p. 475)
“Old Mother says she can't see my destiny. She pretends that's nothing to worry about,
“She didn’t know why she felt this way—but it hurt her terribly. It was as if she were losing something . . . infinitely precious. . . before she had a chance to know it.” (Hannah p. 496)
“You were supposed to be with me —for so long! You're part of me, the part I've always
“Listen to me,” he told Maya, staring into her mocking golden eyes. “Listen, because I’m never going to say this again. If you touch Hannah again—ever—in any life—I will kill you.” (Thierry p. 571)
“You won’t, you know.” Maya’s telepathic voice followed him as he made for the door. “You won’t kill me. Not Thierry the compassionate, Thierry the good vampire, Thierry the saint of Circle Daybreak. You’re not capable of it. You can’t kill.” (p. 572)
“Thierry wasn’t evil. She had the confirmation of ahundred selves whispering to her. Maya was the enemy, the snake in the garden. Thierry was exactly what he’d told her he was. Someone who had made a terrible mistake and had spent millennia paying for it—and searching for her.” (Hannah p.594)
“Why did I come here? I should have put an ad in the paper: ‘Desperately Seeking Thierry.’ I should have known this wouldn’t work.” (Hannah p. 599)
“Not all vampires can shapeshift,” Maya said. “But, then, I’m not like other vampires. I’m the original. And I have to say I’m getting really sick of you.” (p. 631)
"Even if you kill her, she'll still be alive—here." He tapped his chest. "In me. I keep her here. She's part of me. So until you kill me, you can't really kill her. And you can't win. It's that simple." (Thierry p. 651)
"She was with her flying companion—her playmate. The one who was sacred to her, who was the other half of the mysteries of life for her. The one who would always be there for her, helping her, watching her back, picking her up when she fell down, listening to her stories—no matter how many times she told them. Loving her even when she was stupid. Understanding her without words. Being inside the innermost circle in her mind. Her soulmate." (Hannah about Thierry p. 660-661)
“I changed my destiny.” (Hannah p. 662)
“Rule Number One of living with humans. Always wash the blood off before coming in the house.” (Jez p. 22)
"Ghouls weren't smart, but like the Energizer Bunny they kept going and going." (p. 28)
She said, “Sorry. Um, do you want some ice for that bump?”
“In blue fire, the final darkness is banished.
“It means—I don’t think he hates you, Jez. Maybe he has strong emotions for you, but from what I’ve heard I don’t think hate is one of them.” (Hugh p. 53)
"You can't tell me? You disappear one day without any kind of warning, without any kind of note. . .you leave the gang and me and just completely vanish and nobody knows where to find you, not even your uncle. . .and now you appear again and you can't tell me where you were?" He was working himself into one of his Extremely Excited States, Jez realized. (Morgead p. 66)
“I’m not soulmates with Morgead. I can’t be. We hate each other . . . he hates me . . . all we ever do is fight. . . . He’s impossible and dangerous and hot headed and stubborn . . . he’s crazy . . . he’s angry and hostile . . . he’s frustrating and infuriating and he loves to make me miserable . . . And I don’t ever believe in soulmates.” (Jez p. 91)
“This was like nothing she’d ever felt before. It was so strange . . . but so wonderful. A pleasure that she couldn’t have dreamed of. To be this close and to be getting closer, like fire and bright darkness merging . . . To feel her mind opening to him . . . And then the distant echo of fear, like an animal screaming a warning.” (Jez p. 94)
“One from the land of kings long forgotten;
“I wouldn’t marry him if every other guy on earth was dead,” she informed Pierce.”
“You heard me. I don’t care who your friends are, Jez. I don’t even care that you came back to use me. I’m just glad that you came back. We’re soulmates and nothing can change that.” (Morgead p. 204)
“Are you going to try to kill me now? Or is the engagement just off?” (Jez p. 210)
“Tell Hugh . . .” she whispered.
“Listen to me, Jez. There's no reason for you to die—”
“DON’T YOU DARE DIE ON ME, JEZABEL! DON’T YOU DARE! Or I’ll follow you to the next world and KILL you.” (Morgead p. 233)
“I love you, you stupid human,” Morgead gasped against Jez’s cheek. “I can’t live without you. Don’t you know that?”
“Strong-willed and compassionate: that’s a real recipe for disaster.” (Sylvia p. 262)
“You know, for a moment there, I thought I might be in trouble,” Sylvia’s voice was saying calmly. “But I was wrong. The truth is that you’re just an ordinary girl, after all. Weak and powerless—and ordinary. How could you even think about going up against me? Against my people?” (p. 264-265)
“I love you,” he whispered, his breath stirring the hair by her ear. “I did love you. Always remember that.” (Delos p. 270)
“We can’t let them do things like that to people.” (Maggie p. 284)
“I took responsibility for her,” she said, trying to explain. “It’s like when you take in a cat, or—or it’s like being a queen or something. If you say you’re going to be responsible for your subjects, you are. You owe them afterward.” (Maggie p. 321)
“She felt as if she had turned around and unexpectedly found herself facing another person’s soul. A soul that was hanging there, without protection, already in helpless communication with hers.” (Maggie p. 325)
“This is how people are supposed to be, she thought. Joined like this. Open to each other. With nothing hidden and no stupid walls between them.” (Maggie p. 326)
“Love is for weak people. It’s a delusion. And it can be deadly.” (Delos p. 334)
“Soulmates. That was the word. Maggie could sense what it meant. Two people connected, bound to each other forever, soul to soul, in a way that even death couldn't break. Two souls that were destined for each other.” (p. 339)
“I was wrong before. You are as dumb as you look. And you are totally freaking crazy.” (Jeanne p. 385)
“She will come clothed in flowers, shod in blue and scarlet,” the girl was saying. She was still pointing at Maggie, but now it was with something like reverence. “And she will speak of freedom. You heard her, Laundress! It’s her. She’s the one!” (p.394)
“Fine, fine. You go conquer the vampire and I’ll stay here and arrange the revolution.” (Jeanne p.411)
“This is what I am,” Delos said, speaking easily around the fangs. “A hunting animal. Part of a world of darkness that you can’t survive for a minute in. I’ve told you over and over to stay away from it, but you won’t listen. You turn up in my castle, and you just won’t believe your danger. So now I’m going to show you.” (Delos p. 433)
“Go ahead,” Maggie said distinctly. “It doesn’t matter. You’re stronger than me; we both know that. But whatever you do, you can’t make me your prey. You don’t have that power. You can’t control me.” (p. 435)
“I will hurt you,” he said. “Watch me hurt you.” He bent to her angrily, and she could she the intent in his eyes. He meant to frighten and disillusion . . . and he kissed her mouth like raindrops falling on cool water. Maggie clung to him desperately and kissed back. Where they touched the dissolved into each other.” (Delos p. 435-436)
“I don’t want this—”
“You can change your destiny,” she said. “You don’t have to go along with it. I don’t know what’s going to happen with the world, but you don’t have to be what they say. You have the power to fight them!” (Maggie p. 437)
“I am not a weapon.”
“There are some things that you just can’t allow to happen, whatever the cost. There are some things that have just got to be stopped.” (Maggie p. 461)
“Sylvia Weald,” Aradia said. “You were born a witch. Your name means the greenwood, the sacred grove. You are a daughter of Hellewise, and you will be until you die. You are my sister.” (p. 473)
“As long as her soulmate was alive, and they were together, she would be all right.” (Maggie p. 482)
“And you know,” Jeanne said, looking down at Sylvia with her hands on her hips, “that’s how I want to go. Taking my own way out . . . and totally pissing everybody off at the end.” (p. 482)
“And then, for just an instant, something happened. It was as if some barrier had been punctured. Keller felt not just his voice but his worry inside her head. She could feel . . . him.” (p. 508)
“She's too pure to deal with this kind of stuff,” Winnie said defensively. “Violence and all. It's not the same as being chicken.” (p. 514)
“I don’t want your respect. I want your obedience.” (Grandma Harman p. 547)
“You don’t really believe that. Unless you practice being stupid—” (Keller p. 559)
“And just how did she make you two turn around and come back for us, by the way?”
“You put on a good show,” Galen said, “but the truth is that you’re brave and gallant and decent. You have your own code, and you never break it.” (p. 574)
“Keller couldn’t understand what was happening at first. In panic, all she could think was that she was losing herself. Losing her armor, her hardness, everything she needed to keep alive. Some part of her deep inside was melting, flowing toward Galen.” (p. 575)
“It’s you . . . the one I’ve been looking for. You’re the one . . . ” (Keller p. 576)
“There’s something . . . something I have to remember. . .”
“Love,” Keller snarled, “is weakness.” She saw her mother’s note lying on the floor where he’d dropped it and snatched it up. “And nobody is going to make me sentimental and weak! Nobody!” (p. 578)
Iliana stirred. “I thought you were worried about me being late.”
“She cared in a way that went beyond sympathy and beyond compassion and into something like perfect love.” (Keller about Iliana p. 610)
“The gratitude became something different, something more like . . . recognition. It was as if Iliana were discovering Galen all at once, seeing everything in him that Keller had been slowly learning to see. They’re both . . .Keller wanted to think idiots, but the word wouldn’t come. All she ended up with was the same. Both of them. Idealists. Openhearted. Trying to rescue everyone. They’re perfect for each other.” (p. 611)
“Iliana, don’t play dumb blond with me right now, or I’ll have to kill you.” (Keller p. 622)
“If they don’t know that Jaime was in that music room with us yesterday at lunch, they ought to turn in their spy badges.” (Nissa p. 627)
“But you’re asking for a lot of coincidences, aren’t you? How often do people deliberately run each other over in this town?” (Keller p. 628)
“They killed our oldest leader. Our wise woman. You know, some people would take that as a declaration of war.” (Winnie p. 637)
“This was the problem with having walls so hard and high and unscalable, she supposed. When they came down, they crumbled completely, shattering into nothingness. She felt utterly defenseless right now.” (Keller p. 664)
“Keller couldn't form any words for a moment. Then she said, "Galen? When you choose a form, choose something gentle."
“I am a witch and the daughter of a witch. Mine was the hand that took your power; mine was that hand that buried you in silence. Hecate was the most ancient of my mothers. Hecate's hand is my hand now.” (Iliana p. 716)
“Boss, please!” Winnie was almost crying, too.
“People die . . . so love them every day.
