"My little gang of psychotic sixteen year olds is worse!" - Dr. Cable (did someone already say this? Oh well, it's the best one)

“And of course I had no idea the rangers were the good guys. I thought they were Rusty pyromaniacs risen from the grave!” –Tally

“I’m sure it’s very difficult. Especially after a long night of… trees.” –Dr. Cable

“All that glitters is not hovery.” –Shay

“I’m Tally Youngblood. My mind is very ugly. And I’m taking your car.” –Tally, Pretties

“Hi, Ping-la!” –Tally

“Didn’t you ever do something just because a mysterious stranger intrigued you?”
“I gave my gloves to one once but it got me into all sorts of trouble.” –Tally and David,

and this quote that really means so much to the story and life.

"Right. You're so special no one can touch you...you're so special you have to cut yourself to feel anything." Zane.

I love that one.
It's sticks in my head. :P

"never bored on a hoverboard!" -Shay

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Attitudes are contagious. Mine can kill you

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"

Oh... What about these? -All of them are Shay's quotes.

You'd think Tally would've asked before she knocked out the drivers, but there's Tally for you... ~Extras
Never bored on a hoverboard. ~Uglies
Yeah, well, I like my right side better. Looks tougher. ~Uglies

Oh- and here's Tally's:

So you have jewels in your eyes? And they tell time? And they go backward? Isn't that maybe one thing too many, Shay? ~Pretties

Oh yeah, and Dr. Cable -

Of course a hoverboard. What is it with those things and miscreants? ~Can't remember which book

And, of course, Frizz, in Extras:

So, let me get this straight, Aya-chan. You want me, a person who can't lie, to lie about the fact that I can't lie?

 ;) ;)

"My name is Aya Fuse."
"No kidding. Every feed in this city seems to know you. And STOP BOWING!"
