"I kind of feel like writing is like walking. It’s great that you can walk. I feel like everyone should be able to walk! But it’s not enough to just walk. You gotta be able to do other things while you’re walking, otherwise it’s not very impressive. You have no place to walk! And so I feel like it’s important to write, to have the craft of writing, but really the most important thing is to live." [she says while driving her sports car]

"Hey!" he said. "That’s one of my best shirts!"
"So?" she replied without looking up "It’s one of my best legs."
I don’t know why people keep using the alive and together quote when we have lines like this.
'Is that what you do with your people?' Lucian snapped. 'Do you sit around and ridicule me? Call me an animal? Tell them I can’t pleasure my own wife?'
Phaedra looked away, shamed again.
'I said no such thing.'
'Then what did you say?'
'Not the truth,' she cried. 'I didn't tell them the worst parts. That when we mated you didn't look at me. You didn't say a word. Not once. And then you discarded me and lay with your Mont girls. So I'd have to hear the women in your village speak of how the Charynite girl was useless in all things.'
He pointed a finger at her face. ‘I don’t break bonds! I lay with no woman until you left. You. All this talk of the wife I sent back when it was your tears that begged me to send you back. Preferring to live in those filthy caves rather than share my home … my bed. Because I’m some animal.’
She stared at him through hot tears.
'That’s not what I –'
'And then you came back and I thought things were different.' Lucian walked away, but then swung back around and she could see the hurt in his eyes.
'I grieved for you,' he blurted out, as if it was the last thing he wanted to admit. And Phaedra stepped back from him, frightened by the emotion of his words.
No but Lilit telling her grandmother about the most amazing boy that she just met and how he’s nothing like that idiot prince, he’s a proper soldier and can fight and he’s good-looking to boot, and “just wait until you meet him Nene.” But when he comes, she realizes her grandmother’s right and Dylan’s voice is wrong somehow, and then it hits her like a ton of bricks Dylan is a girl but she decides it doesn’t matter because as absolutely brilliant as Dylan was as a boy, she’s even more incredible as a girl for keeping up such a thorough deception along with everything else she’s good at. And Lilit realizing that she’s falling for this strange and incredible Scottish girl, but then she sees the way Dylan looks at Alek when the imbecile’s not paying attention and that realization stabs her in the heart like a knife and I just have a lot of feelings for Lilit right now
"I don’t want to say this," he says, "but I feel like I have to. It is more important for you to be safe than right."
