[in no particular order.]
"The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy who loves you."
"It kills me sometimes, how people die."
"I am haunted by humans."
"A DEFINITION NOT FOUND
IN THE DICTIONARY
not leaving: an act of trust and love, often deciphered
by children."
"A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship."
"Even death has a heart."
"His soul sat up. It met me. Those kinds of souls always do—the best ones. The ones who rise up and say, "I know who you are and I am ready. Not that I want to go, of course, but I will come."
"A NICE THOUGHT:
One was a book thief.
The other stole the sky."
"She was saying goodbye and she didn't even know it."
"The sky was white but deteriorating fast. As always, it was becoming an enormous drop sheet. Blood was bleeding through, and in patches, the clouds were dirty, like footprints in melting snow.
Footprints? you ask.
Well, I wonder whose those could be."
"The words. Why did they have to exist? Without them, there wouldn't be any of this."
"As always, one of her books was next to her."
"If they killed him tonight, at lease he would die alive."
"'There were stars,'" he said. 'They burned my eyes.'"
"Like her papa, her soul was sitting up."

The Book Thief is by Markus Zusak. He is a truly talented writer, and I would suggest this book to anyone. All of you who have read this post and have not read the book: go read the book. It will change you.
