Post by: Tabac vie on February 28, 2010, 07:45:56 AM
also the the quote that Scott puts in uglies by Sir. Francis bacon

"There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in proportion."

  b/c I really think it goes excellent with the quote: "Or maybe when they do the operation-when they grind and stretch your bones to the right shape, peel off your face and rub all your skin away,  and stick in plastic cheekbones so you look like everybody else- maybe after going through all that you just aren't very interesting anymore." Shay

My favourite is the one from the end of Specials in her ping. I can't remeber it all.....1 sec......"You see, freedom has a way of destroying things." That's my absolute fave quote ever from Uglies. I love the whole ping. Fave part of the series is that ping. I know, it's one ping. But I love it.
Title: Re: Good Quotes from the Uglies Books?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on February 28, 2010, 09:20:57 AM
i love that quote, too, emma-la
a lot of the quotes in uglies are very meaningful
Title: Re: Good Quotes from the Uglies Books?
Post by: Emma-la on February 28, 2010, 12:34:47 PM
I know. I could read that whole paragraph over and over again becasue I love it! They're all so meaningfull and deep. I love it!
Title: Re: Good Quotes from the Uglies Books?
Post by: Team Toshi Banana on February 28, 2010, 01:52:23 PM
My favorite scene from the whole 4-book trilogy when Dr. Cable rescues Tally at the end of Specials and she says, "Keep yourself Special. The world may need you some day." I'm not sure why I like it so much, it just felt like it ended the Cable vs. Youngblood thing in a simple and strong way.
Title: Re: Good Quotes from the Uglies Books?
Post by: lynda-wa on February 28, 2010, 02:42:00 PM
I like the ones on the front covers..............but I can't remember them. I have plenty more tho!
"Sometimes it felt like her life was a series of falls from ever greater heights." Pretties
"Because the city makes you the way they want you to be, Peris. And I want to be myself. Thats why." Tally, Pretties (when theyre leaving the city in the ballon)
"But people are better now than they used to be. Maybe they have good reasons for changing us, Tally." "Their reasons don't meant anything unless I have a choice, Peris. And they don't give anyone a choice." Tally and Peris, Pretties
"Everyone in the world was programmed by the place they were born, hemmed in my their beliefs, but you had to at least try to grow your own brain. Otherwise, you might as well be living on a reservation, worshipping a bunch of bogus gods." Pretties
This part of the ping totally caught my attention: "You all say you need us. Well, maybe you do, but not to help you. You have enough help, with the millions of bubbly new minds about to be unleashed, with all the cities coming awake at last. Together, you're more than enough to change the world without us. So from now on, David and I are here to stand in your way. You see, freedom has a way of destroying things." Tally, Specials(also starts off Extras)
"Sometimes you have to lie to find the truth." Frizz, Extras
"You can disappear in front of a crowd too." Eden, Extras
"Sometimes it's a messy business, saving the world."
"Life doesn't come with an instruction manual. So don't tell me that humanity being brain-missing is my fault." Tally, Extras

"That's not me. It's some committes's idea of me." Shay, Uglies
"If only people were smarter, evolved enough to treat everyone the same even if they looked different. Looked ugly. " Uglies
"Maybe they didn't want you to realize that every civilization has its weakness. There's always one thing we depend on. And if someone takes it away, all that's left is some story in a  history class." David, Uglies
"Which was worse, a friend with brain damage, or one who despised you?" Uglies
"Your personality-the real you inside-was the price of beauty." Uglies
yeah, i think thats all. for now lol

I love how my favourite quotations page has two dozen Scott Westerfeld quotes and 0 Stephenie Meyer XD
My favourite quotes are:
"Nature didn't need an operation to be beautiful. It just was."
"That shay was in possesion of handgranades was a comforting thought showed what kind of night this had become."
"You just took on five million years of evolution again." "I what? Did I say something wrong?" "No, you said something right."
"I love you all. But it's time to say good-bye, for now. Be careful with the world, or the next time we meet, it might get ugly."
"But I wouldn't use the word ugly...Tally might eat you."

And finally, my personal all-time favourite...
"The early summer sky was the color of cat vomit."
The best is the first, what can I say?

 I love, " Sometimes you have to lie to find the truth," it is my fav beside the David quote(which is getting to be like John 3:16.....everyone knows it off by heart :P

 "when the people of the world all know beauty as beauty, there arises the recognition of ugliness. When they all know the good as good there arises the recongnition of evil."

"by plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower"

I was just looking though Pretties and I found this quote: "Maybe humans beings are programmed . . . to help one another, even to fall in love. But just because it's human nature doesn't make it bad" (pg. 359)

And I just found a typo in the book. But I'll leave it in for authenticity :P. And these spambots creep me out slightly.

"Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeos. What be wrong with that?" Cover page of Uglies.

"Gorgeos. Popular. Perfect. Perfectly worng." Cover page of Pretties. My favorite on! It cracks me up for some reason!

"Frightningly beautiful. Dangerously strong. Breathtakingly fast." Cover page Specials.

"Be careful with the world, or the next time we meet, it might get ugly." Last line of Specials.

"I'm Tally Youngblood, make be pretty." Last line of Uglies.

"Face it Tally, your special." Last line of Pretties.

I am not sure if these were repeated:

not sure if this one is correct:
"Semi? Is that even a word?"
"Only half of one."
