some of the best lines.

I'm feeling a bit lazy at the moment and don't quite know what to blog about, so I've grabbed my quote-book (in this case it's actually quote-book #2, because #1 got filled up) and here are some of my recent-ish favorite quotes.

"Nothing goes away," Esteban says after a long time passes. "Not the things you remember, and not the things you still want." 
~Small Damages, by Beth Kephart (p. 152 -- ARC)

The longer I was around her, the more I could see the colors of her mind and the recesses of her heart. There was a beast in there. But there was also a girl who was afraid of being a beast, and who wondered if other people had beasts in their hearts, too.
~Tiger Lily, by Jodi Lynn Anderson (p. 21)

I hadn't been in the woods in years, and as I started to follow the trail, I realized how familiar it all was, the beads of dew on the moss, the smell of the pine trees, the snap of twigs and leaves underneath my flip-flops. It was... the realization that just because you'd left something behind didn't mean that it had gone anywhere.
~Second Chance Summer, by Morgan Matson (p. 62)

Summer sighed. "You want to have air-quotes fun. I just want to have regular fun."
~Reunited, by Hilary Weisman Graham (p. 173)

Do you have any recent favorite quotes from novels? (I think my favorite of the above is the quote from Tiger Lily.)
