One more quote, from uglies. Its a re-translation from the german book, so it could be a littel wrong

,,Maybe you should not understand, that every civilization has her weaknesses. There is allways somthing, what we depending.
And if someone remove that, remains nothing more than a lesson for the historyteaching."
- David in UGLIES

Thats so true.

In the English book it's:
"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."

But yeah! Great quotes! Uglies is so very quotable...

How would that even work? Would the letters spin around?

1 of my fave quotes is in Pretties, when Tally realizes that tricky-enough uglies become Specials. Don't remember the whole scene's quote; could someone write it all out? Thanks.
Tally to Dr. Cable: You were tricky.
Another fave is in Extras, with Tally to Aya: Because sometimes we love each other. And sometimes we hate each other.
Write that one out too, please.

It's long... But it's on page 127, I think.

That was actually to Frizz, not to Aya:

Frizz frowned, and Aya felt a radically honest moment coming on.
"You and Shay are logic-missing," he said. "Sometimes you're like best friends, and other times you seem to hate each other."
"Maybe that's because sometimes we're best friends," Tally said. "And other times we hate each other."
