Favorite Akiva Quotes

1. "Be your own place of safety, she told herself, straightening. No crossbar in the world could protect her from what lay ahead, and neither could a tiny knife ticked in her boot - though there her tiny knife would most certainly remain - and neither could a man, not even Akiva. She had to be her own strength, complete unto herself."
Author: Laini Taylor
2. "He dropped to his knees, and the air between them rippled with Karou's crippling magic and with memory. The day of her death, this is what she had seen, this: Akiva on his knees, sick with the weight of this same magic coursing off Thiago's soldiers, and he had struggled to hold his head up and look at her—just like this—with horror and despair and love—and she had wanted more than she had ever wanted anything to go to him and hold him, whisper to him that she loved him and was going to save him, but she couldn't, not then, and she couldn't now, not because of shackles or pinions or the executioner's ax but because he was the enemy. He had proven it beyond any horror she would ever have believed, beyond any betrayal she could ever have dreamed, and he could never be forgiven, not ever.But… then… her hands fell to her sides."

3. "That is your legend?" Akiva asked, incredulous. Madrigal had told him the story of the sun and Ellai while they flew. "That seraphim are the blood of a rapist sun?"

4. "Finding Akiva's door still closed, Liraz gave a chuff of derision and didn't knock but only crashed it open and glared at the sight that greeted them. Akiva and Karou, eyes bleary with desire, facing each other on a stone slab and touching, hands to hearts... "Well," Liraz said, her voice as dry as the rest of her was not. "At least you still have your clothes on."

11. "—Quiero que sepas… —Akiva tragó saliva—. Necesito que sepas que me sentí atraído por ti (por ti, Karou) antes de descubrir el hueso. Antes de darme cuenta, y creo… creo que siempre te encontraría, sin importar lo escondida que estuvieras —la miró con extraordinaria intensidad—. Tu alma y la mía cantan la misma canción. Mi alma es tuya, y siempre lo será, en cualquier mundo. No importa lo que suceda… —su voz se quebró y tuvo que respirar hondo—. Necesito que recuerdes que te quiero."
Author: Laini Taylor
12. "He remembered a story Madrigal had told him once: the human tale of the golem. It was a thing shaped of clay in the form of a man, brought to life by carving the symbol aleph into its brow. Aleph was the first symbol of an ancestral human alphabet, and the first letter of the Hebrew word truth; it was the beginning. Watching Karou rise to her feet, radiant in a fall of lapis hai, in a woven dress the colour of tangerines, with a loop of silver beads at her throat and a look of joy and relief and... love... on her beautiful face, Akiva knew that she was his aleph, his truth and beginning. His soul."
Author: Laini Taylor
13. "An angel lay dying in the mist. Once upon a time.And the devil should have finished him off without a second thought.But she hadn't. And if she had? Karou had wondered it a hundred different ways. She'd even wished for it, in her blackest grief at the Kasbah, when all she could see was the death that had come of her mercy.If she'd killed Akiva that day, or even just let him die, the war would have ground on unbroken. Another thousand years? Maybe. But she hadn't, and it hadn't. "The age of wars is over," Akiva had just said, and even as Karou saw what she saw and no possibility of mistake, and even as her whole being gathered itself into a scream, her heart defied it. The age of wars was over, and Akiva would not die like this.The blade entered his heart."
Author: Laini Taylor
14. "How do you act like you've lost your soul?" Akiva asked. He meant it as a lighthearted question about a children's game, but when he heard himself say the words, he thought, Who knows better than I?You betray everything you believe in. You drown your grief in vengeance. You kill and keep killing until there's no one left."
Author: Laini Taylor
15. "Evrenden almak için vermen gerekir," dedi Akiva."Ama... Neden aci? Baska bir sey veremez misin? Mesela... Nese?"Bu bir denge meselesi. Kolay verilen bir sey olsaydi, anlami olmazdi.""Gerçekten nesenin, acidan daha kolay oldugunu mu düsünüyorsun? Sen hangisini daha çok yasadin?"
Author: Laini Taylor
16. "War is all we've been taught, but there are other ways to live. We can find them, Akiva. We can invent them. This is the beginning, here." She touched his chest and felt a rush of love for the heart that moved his blood, for his smooth skin and his scars and his unsoldierly tenderness. She took his hand and pressed it to her breast and said, "We are the beginning." They began to believe that they could be."
Author: Laini Taylor
17. "Akiva had envisioned this meeting many different ways, and in none of them has his father been naked."
Author: Laini Taylor
18. "Akiva.""Akiva." It pleased her to say it. She may have been the one whose name meant music, but his sounded like it. Saying it made her want to sing it, to lean out a window and call him home. To whisper it in the dark."
Author: Laini Taylor
19. "Head held high, she stepped toward the block and sank to her knees, and it was then that Akiva started to scream. His voice soared over the pandemonium - a scream to scour the souls of all gathered, a sound to drive ghosts from their nests."
Author: Laini Taylor
20. "Allí, junto a Akiva, incluso mientras hablaban de guerra, ciudades sitiadas y enemistad duradera, se sentía atraída hacia su inmensidad y calidez, como si fuera al mismo tiempo lugar y persona, y, contra cualquier lógica, exactamente donde se suponía que ella debía estar."
Author: Laini Taylor
21. "In moments Akiva was up in the ether, scarcely feeling the sting of ice crystals in the thin air. He let his glamour fall away, and his wings were like sheets of fire sweeping the black of the heavens. He moved at speed, onward toward another human city to find another doorway bitter with the devil's magic, and after that another, until all bore the black handprint....Once all the doors were marked, the end would begin. And it would begin with fire."
