We might have a Favorite Quotations section in Tally’s World: The Ultimate Guide to the Uglies Universe. So I thought I’d ask you guys what your fave quotes are.
Here are mine:
“What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.” -David, Uglies
“I can’t imagine anything worse than being required to have fun.” -Shay, Uglies
“Of course, a hoverboard. What is it about those things and miscreants?” -Dr. Cable, Uglies
â€œSo wait. You have jewels in your eyes? And they tell time? And they go backwards? Isnâ€™t that maybe one thing too many, Shay?â€ -Tally, Pretties
â€œI thought that food of the gods would be . . . better, somehow.â€
â€œHey, this is dehydrated food of the gods, okay?â€ -Andrew and Tally, Pretties
“Freedom has a way of destroying things.” -Tally, Specials
“It doesn’t take much convincing to make someone believe they’re better than everyone else.” -Tally, Specials
“I’m not trying to be mysterious. It’s just working out that way.” -Aya, Extras
“I know what it’s like to be manipulated, Aya-la. And I know what it’s like to be in danger. While your city was building you mansions to live in, my friends and I have been protecting this planet. We’ve spilled more blood than you have flowing in your veins. So don’t try to make me feel guilty!” -Tally, Extras
Feel free fill this comment thread with your own suggestions. I’d prefer to stick to things that the characters actually say, rather than my own spare prose. But we’ll see.
Let the quoting begin!
