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

"Hi, Ping-la!"
~Tally-wa, Specials
Quote

I also love that one.  In fact, I think it's the most amusing dialogue I ever read in the series, that I recall.

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

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.
