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.
