Favorite Fictional Characters Quotes

1. "I suppose all fictional characters, especially in adventure or heroic fiction, at the end of the day are our dreams about ourselves. And sometimes they can be really revealing."
Author: Alan Moore
2. "No more movie references. No more fictional characters to relate to. This was real. It was destiny. I was…a thing, a commodity."
Author: C.J. Roberts
3. "I quote fictional characters, because I'm a fictional character myself!"
Author: Carrie Fisher
4. "I'd said to them that when we read fiction, we pour our own paricular store of emotions - say, the sense of loss we feel for those disappeared from our lives - into the characters set before us. We take the few words with which the writer sketches these characters, the thing he said, the pain she felt, where they were, and our own emotional stockpile magically creates people. As the human eye fleshes out the pixilated image. Fictional characters are highly sophiticated Rorschach blots, and we, along with their author, are their authors. When you read a fictional character, you too are creating her."
Author: Chandler Burr
5. "Whoa, I've really got to stop making plans with fictional characters. It can't be healthy to develop relationships with people who don't exist."
Author: Chris Colfer
6. "The choice of the point(s) of view from which the story is told is arguably the most important single decision that the novelist has to make, for it fundamentally affects the way readers will respond, emotionally and morally, to the fictional characters and their actions. The story of an adultery, for instance - any adultery - will affect us differently according to whether it is presented primarily from the point of view of the unfaithful person, or the injured spouse, or the lover - or as observed by some fourth party. Madame Bovary narrated mainly from the point of view of Charles Bovary would be a very different book from the one we know."
Author: David Lodge
7. "Just because we're fictional characters doesn't mean you can pick us up and move us anywhere you want.--the people of Lake Woebegon"
Author: Garrison Keillor
8. "They were...no ordinary group, gathering together to kill an evening, to seek refuge from critical husbands and demanding children while idly discussing their new best-seller. They met because literature was their shared passion. Books were as important to them as breath itself. They shared the ability to immerse themselves in the lives of fictional characters, to argue passionately about the development of plots, about decisions taken, dilemmas resolved."
Author: Gloria Goldreich
9. "Laurent wanted to make sure you never came near me again. He just did not know that as time went on, the world would start to romanticize vampires—fictional characters or not."
Author: Inger Iversen
10. "You can have a very intense relationship with fictional characters because they are in your own head."
Author: J.K. Rowling
11. "Fictional characters are made of words, not flesh; they do not have free will, they do not exercise volition. They are easily born, and as easily killed off."
Author: John Banville
12. "The language fictional characters use is chosen for effect, at least if the author is concentrating."
Author: John M. Ford

Author: Julia Hall

Author: Kassie DePaiva
15. "It is always sad to write about prejudice, but sometimes when we see it being played out in the lives of fictional characters, we can recognize it in our own lives."
Author: Katherine Paterson
16. "As a historian, I found myself all too often treating my historical subjects like fictional characters, malleable entities that could be made to do one thing or another, whose motivations could be speculated upon endlessly, and whose missing actions could be reconstructed and approximated based on assessments of prior and later behaviors. It was one of the hazards with working a fragmentary source base. You had little scraps, like puzzle pieces, and you could put them together as best you could. But no matter how faithful you tried to be to the historical record, there would always be that element of guesswork, of imagination, of (if we're being totally honest) fiction."
Author: Lauren Willig
17. "Oh god, Anabeth," Ellie muttered. "Your whole life is based around sex." "So?" she shot back. "It's better than having sex with fictional characters!" Ellie shot up out of my desk chair. "I do not have sex with fictional characters!" "Oh puh-lease, I've seen the books you read, all big muscley men and virginal women and steamy sex. Why else would you read that crap if not to get off?"
Author: Madeline Sheehan
18. "Maybe the midnight disease was like that, too. After a while you lost the ability to distinguish between your fictional and actual words; you confused yourself with your characters, and the random happenings of your life with the machinations of a plot."
Author: Michael Chabon
19. "We referenced fictional characters as if they were people to learn from. As if real-life people were too nebulous, too private and unreal for us to understand."
Author: Miguel Syjuco
20. "Today's youth cannot miss something they have never known, but I fear that there are no current fictional characters whose impact and influence will last with such abiding affection into their 'sore and yellow' as this splendid man's creations have in mine!"
Author: Peter Cushing
21. "If you will practice being fictional for a while, you will understand that fictional characters are sometimes more real than people with bodies and heartbeats."
Author: Richard Bach
22. "How many of us count fictional characters, or those we've never met, among our closest friends? My hand's up."
Author: Richard Bach
23. "My characters are fictional. I get ideas from real people, sometimes, but my characters always exist only in my head."
Author: S. E. Hinton
24. "Neither is a memoir the same as a biography, which aims for the most objective, factual account of a life. A memoir, as I understand it, makes no pretense of denying its subjectivity. Its matter is one person's memory, and memory by nature is selective and colored by emotion. Others who participated in the events I describe will no doubt remember some details differently, though I hope we would agree on the essential truths. I have taken no liberties with the past as I remember it, used no fictional devices beyond reconstructing conversations from memory. I have not blended characters, or bent chronology to convenience. And yet I have tried to tell a good story."
Author: Sonia Sotomayor
25. "My shows and books are an instant mood adjuster. They're my drugs of choice. And the fictional characters I love are like my friends."
Author: Susane Colasanti
