This week is a Top Ten freebie so I am going with - Top Quotes. We did a post like this not long ago but there's no shortage of awesome quotes, so here's some I didn't use last time.
"In the morning we shall have gone; but we will send our messages through the lands. The Wandering Companies shall know of your journey, and those that have power for good shall be on the watch."
"My scouts report fires in the high places at night. Signal fires, they think...as if there were a ring of watchers all around us."
"Speak the names, and a man will do the rest."
"That's funny. The damage doesn't look as bad from out here."
"In the last days of the last moonphase of autumn a wind blew from the northern ranges through the dying forests of Askatevar, a cold wind that smelled of smoke and snow."
"What happened back there?"
"Semtex. I left it in the alley outside the club."
"What? You did that too?"
"No one was hurt. Just a distraction."
"Just a distraction? That was a bomb!"
"Only a little one."
"Have you seen my other shoe, m'lord?"
The question seemed to vex Lord Bracken. "Am I a bloody handmaid, to fetch you shoes? Go barefoot if you must. Just go. "
"Does that mean m'lord won't be taking me home with him, to pray with his little wife?" Laughing, Hildy gave Jaime a brazen look. "Do you have a little wife, ser?"
"I have sworn a vow," he told Hildy wearily.
"No turnips for you then," the girl said, saucily.
"Get out," Lord Jonos roared at her.
"I run here and there and everywhere with my eyes wide open, but I never see anything. Fairy-like, I mean."
"Oh, bloody shit," said Holly. "That will bring the kneelers down on us, and no mistake. Run!"
"I've just about had enough of you. Go that way. You'll be malfunctioning within a day, you nearsighted scrap pile."

Love all the ASoIaF quotes :) but especially "Speak the names, and a man will do the rest." - short, sweet and to the point. Some day maybe I'll reread them againReplyDelete
That is a good one :):):):Delete
Great TTT topic! I agree there are lots of quotes in our favorite books to choose from isn't there. I could do 10 quotes from EACH Harry Potter book!ReplyDelete

Love that last quote from Star Wars. From C3PO to R2-D2 if I remember right. I always enjoyed the interactions between those two. :)ReplyDelete
I did too! And yes those two are a riotDelete
Love how half your quotes are from ASOIAF!ReplyDelete
I know, I could have used all ten but I thought a little variety might be good :)Delete
I never remember quotes. I think the only quote I remember was from Jaws. lolReplyDelete

Speak the names is awesomeDelete
I adore quotes! :-) Some great ones here.ReplyDelete
oh fun! it's always great to read quotes of a novelReplyDelete
Hah, quotes is an excellent choice - and Tolkien has so many great quotes to choose from. I love quotes.ReplyDelete
I love quotes even though I almost never really notice them while I'm reading. Or at least don't think of them in that contextReplyDelete
I still haven't seen any of the original Star Wars movies yet, but the quotes I always hear from them are pretty memorable :)ReplyDelete
- louise ☆
Enticing quotes! I especially like the one Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. Sounds like a funny one.ReplyDelete
I think I'm going to have to read Au Revoir Crazy European Chick. :DReplyDelete
Lots of great quotes but I haven't read a single book from your list. I really need to get to Martin!ReplyDelete
These are some awesome quotes. I'm really going to have to get on reading Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. Love that LOTR quote!ReplyDelete
I love book quotes, and am in awe that you had ten handy for this post. I can never come up with any when I need them. I only read LOTR and that was a long time ago.ReplyDelete
I love the quotes from Star Wars and Au Revoir Crazy European Chick- it's been so long since I've read A Song of Ice and Fire that I barely remember those quotes (I guess probably too long!). And of course, LOTR is always a win with me. :)ReplyDelete
This is a great topic! I may steal it one week.ReplyDelete
Aww The Cats of Tanglewood Forest is one of my favorite stories. <3ReplyDelete
This is a great post and of course I love the Star Wars quotes.ReplyDelete
The Song of Ice and Fire series is a treasure trove of amazing quotes!ReplyDelete
