She just nodded, swallowing. Yes, she was dying."

The riddle page 169.

One of my favourite quotes:
"Maerad, our world is filled with sorrow and evil," he said. "But there is also beauty and light and love. You must remember that." (Riddle, page 181)
I love this quote because, well, to start with, it's very profound, very wise, true in our world as well, typically Cadvan...

Good old Cadvan. there's always a wise one. Most of my favourite quotes are made by Cadvan.

pg. 412 of The Gift (The Naming for some of you!)
Cadvan to Maerad:
"By all we have suffered together, by the sworn bond you owe me as your teacher, and by the deeper bond you owe me as your friend I bid you tell me: What has happened to you, Maerad of Pellinor?"
It's at the beginning of the chapter 'old scars', and it gets me so choked up every time! Masterful use of words Alison!
although the other quotes on this thread are good too...

The words fell gently as rain into Maerad's mind, but she winced as if they bruised her."
Bit long i know , but *shrugs* hey its just too good.

The quote that sticks in my mind the most is in The Gift, p106, just before they go off to the feast in Innail.
"I'll stick like a burr," said Maerad.
I don't know why this has stuck with me so much. It made me smile when i first read it - funny mental image, i think.

i think the quote stuck to you like a... burr! what is a burr anyway?

I do believe a burr is that rough prickly husk or covering surrounding the seeds or fruits of plants. Not very pleasant things to have stuck into you, I'm sure
Anyways, I haven't been on the forum for a long while mainly because my computer crashed and we had to get a new one which took ages.
Here's one of my favorite quotes from Pellinor series. It's from The Naming/The Gift. It might not be exact word for word though and I apologize if it isn't. It's rather long as well...
"Here on the earth's surface, thought Maerad, people labor and suffer and die. Does any of that anguish touch the stars? She wondered if the stars could sense the vibrations of human joy and wonder, of grief and despair. Did the stars know what was right and wrong? What were the Dark and the Light to them? She remembered what Ardina had said to Cadvan: the Light blooms the brighter in the darkest places. Perhaps, at this distance from human affairs, another pattern emerged from the chaos, another kind of necessity, and even evil became part of a larger music....Maerad then felt as if she keenly understood, for the first time in her life, the intricate relationships between all things, a web of inifinite beauty and complexity. Between the small orb of her eye, and the distant star, she felt the pull of a tiny glowing thread, one of the infinite gravities that wove together the living and the dead, the far and the near, the tiny and the immense, in one everchanging, ever-renewing world."
It's beautiful isn't it? Alison is brillant.

that's right at the end isn't it? when they're on the boat to thorold?
I like the way that Maerad becomes quite philosophical. Your right Eled it is beautiful.
