Quotes About Life From 2014 Young Adult Books
“To love is to be afraid. You are frightened, deathly terrified, that something will happen to those you love. Think of the possibilities. Does your heart clench with each thought? That, my friend, is love. And love enslaves us all, for you cannot have love without fear.” – The Young Elites by Marie Lu
“No in the world ever gets what they want and that is beautiful.” – Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
“…There is no salvation without sacrifice, no light without darkness, no triumph that doesn’t carry the seeds of its own descrution bouncing around in its pocket.” – Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay
“If you don’t put yourself out there, if you don’t take risks, you can’t truly feel.” – 100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith
“Love and war are two different battlefields.” ― Red Rising by Pierce Brown
“And maybe what growing up really means is knowing that you don’t have to be just a character, going whichever way the story says. It’s knowing you could be the author instead.” ― Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
“Maybe there isn’t such a thing as fate. Maybe it’s just the opportunities we’re given, and what we do with them. I’m beginning to think that maybe great, epic romances don’t just happen. We have to make them ourselves.” ― Cress by Marissa Meyer
“Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures. No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.” – Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
