Quotes (#30)

Morning Swooners!

So I recently finished reading the Legend series by Marie Lu and I absolutely LOVED it! So to honor that new love that I can't seem to get over, here are some quotes from the three books. Hope you enjoy them!

“'You're brilliant,' he says. 'But you're a fool to stay with someone like me.' I close my eyes at the touch of his hand. 'Then we are both fools.'”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“Brave thoughts, but am I ready to follow through on them?”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“Dust everywhere... and out of that emerged this beautiful boy with the bluest eyes I'd ever seen, holding his hand out to help me to my feet.”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“It's strange being here with you. I hardly know you. But...sometimes it feels like we're the same person born into two different worlds.”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“Someday I’ll see him again, and we’ll tell our stories to each other…but for now, I lock him safely away, in a place where I can draw on his strength.”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“Her sadness makes her impossibly beautiful, like snow blanketing a barren landscape.”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“I can see her intelligence in every question she asks me and every observation she makes. But at the same time, there's an innocence that makes her completely different from most of the people I've met. She's not cynical or jaded. The streets haven't broken her. They've made her stronger instead.”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“She's pretty in a way that distracts me just like she did in the Skiz ring. No, pretty's not the right word. Beautiful.”  ― Marie Lu, Legend

“Day, the boy from the streets with nothing except the clothes on his back and the earnestness in his eyes, owns my heart. He is beauty, inside and out. He is the silver lining in a world of darkness. He is my light.”  ― Marie Lu, Prodigy

“I want to run. To do what I always do, have always done, for the last five years of my life. Escape, flee into the shadows. But this time, I stand my ground. I'm tired of running.”  ― Marie Lu, Prodigy

“I turn even more flustered when I remember that I have actually pistol-whipped him in the face before. Romantic.”  ― Marie Lu, Prodigy

“Sometimes, the sun sets earlier. Days don’t last forever, you know. But I’ll fight as hard as I can. I can promise you that.”  ― Marie Lu, Champion

“I’ve been searching a long time for something I think I lost. I felt like I found something when I saw you back there.”  ― Marie Lu, Champion

“He loves you, really he does. He'd love you even if it destroyed him. He matches you.”  ― Marie Lu, Champion

“Where I come from, we're more about efficiency,' he replies. 'A knife like this'll skewer food, smear butter, and slit throats all at the same time.” ― Marie Lu, Champion

“I'm so tired. I don't know if I can ever outrun how I used to be.”  ― Marie Lu, Champion

  1. YESSS! So glad I stumbled upon this post today :D I'm currently rereading this series, and it's reaffirming to me how much of a favorite this is. I love all the quotes you pulled together, and I can't wait to find all of them as I continue through the series. I finished and re-reviewed Legend a few days ago for a readathon I'm participating in, and it was amazing to revisit and recommend this amazing story ^-^ Great post!
