Quote your Character (Day 1)

Quote Lillian 2

I was nominated for the 3 Day 3 Quote challenge and decided to switch things up. Have your characters said something quote-worthy? I plan to post quotes spoken by my characters (not me, mind you). I invite anyone with a favorite quote from your writing to share it in my comments any or all of these 3 days.

Thank you to LIVE LOVE LAUGH for sending this my way!

If anyone would like to pass on the official 3 Day 3 Quote Challenge, here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Post a quote a day for 3 days.
3. Each day, nominate 3 new bloggers to take part in the challenge.


Here’s another from my friend, Lillian:

  1. Lillian sounds very wise. I usually begin my couples therapy sessions with a meditation or quote. I think Lillian is going to make it into the rotation tonight!

    Enjoyed reading this post, the quotes especially. I wish I have some characters to quote, but non-fiction is my thing…anyway, I enjoyed reading the comments too, Diana!

    If you’ve ever been hungry, you might appreciate this quote-worthy bit from a rat friend of mine who is itching to meet the world:

    It didn’t take long before my belly was hollering for a fill-up. I sucked down a slimy slug– ugh! I tugged a tick and gave it a lick– ick! I even chewed a stinky shoe– eeew!

    Your kindness made me much braver than I was a week ago. 🙂

    I love these quotes! One day, when I have time to read again, maybe I’ll read this book 😉
    As for quotes from *my* characters… as hey are all non-fictional, I don’ have many that I could share 🙂

    I’m a few chapters into my ARC copy, and I do like Lillian very much. My mental image is in line with Meg Foster’s character on The Originals:

      (Tried to post an image in the HTML there, but it didn’t show up. I guess you’ll have to use Google/Images and search “Meg Foster Originals” if you’d like to see the character I referenced!)

    • Hi Erik. That’s fun. I forget that there are a few people out there reading it. I’m not familiar with The Originals. I’ll check it out.


  6. These sound like interesting characters, Diana. I would guess your book is full of others as well. 🙂

    One to offer:

    What is a man? Why has he come
    To fathom out all that he is?
    But not know what he thirsts to find.

    That alone I received
    In small inflections from a hand…
    Quizzical amusement in a brow…
    A surreptitious fleeting smile…
    The shaking of an honest head,
    The synchrony of walking pace
    In the presence of a friend.

    Therein lies answer, yet I full know
    It will not prove amenable…
    Entire and too delicate
    For intellect’s analysis…
    The heart has its reasons, inchoate,
    What do I know? Or know I knew?
    I knew Eratosthenes.
