Top Quotes About Olaf

1. "A vision of the Shining One swirling into our world, a monstrous, glorious flaming pillar of incarnate, eternal Evil--of people passing through its radiant embrace into that hideous, unearthly life-in-death which I had seen enfold the sacrifices--of armies trembling into dancing atoms of diamond dust beneath the green ray's rhythmic death--of cities rushing out into space upon the wings of that other demoniac force which Olaf had watched at work--of a haunted world through which the assassins of the Dweller's court stole invisible, carrying with them every passion of hell--of the rallying to the Thing of every sinister soul and of the weak and the unbalanced, mystics and carnivores of humanity alike; for well I knew that, once loosed, not any nation could hold the devil-god for long and that swiftly its blight would spread!"
Author: A. Merritt
2. "Olaf hielt sich keineswegs für etwas Besonderes; seine Heavy-Metal-Kutte und die schwarzen T-Shirts mit grellbunten Aufschriften trug er nicht aus einem Grund, den man vor zehn oder zwanzig Jahren in den Kategorien von Identitätsstiftung, Sozialisierung und Jugendkultur erfasst hätte, sondern weil sie zu der Musik gehörten, die er mochte, und weil andere Klamotten ihm nicht gefielen. Aber 'Divergenz' bedeutete 'Auseinanderstreben', und Olaf strebte auseinander.Zwischen anderen Menschen und vor allem innerhalb der so genannten Klassengemeinschaft fühlte er sich wie ein Europäer unter Japanern: Alle sahen gleich aus, betrachteten einen als Gaijin, und zum Schluss erfuhr man, dass sie Koreaner waren. [...] er wusste nicht, worüber er mit ihnen reden sollte, und wunderte sich an manchen Tagen darüber, dass sie überhaupt dieselbe Sprache verwendeten wie er. Seine Unfähigkeit, sich als einer von ihnen zu fühlen, war Divergenz - und in deprimierten Momenten 'Inkompatibilität'."

4. "Trust me, Anita, if you get dead, especially if he blames himself in any way, he will be a force of destruction looking for a place to be aimed.

Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

The Greeks thought that when you found the other half of your soul, your soul mate, that it would be your perfect lover. But I think if you find your other half, you would be too much alike to be lovers, but you would still be soul mates."
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

Finally-as, I'm sorry to say, Count Olaf forced the Quagmires into puppy costumes so he could sneak them onto the airplane without anyone noticing-the Baudelaires cried themselves out and just sat on the lawn together in weary silence."
Author: Lemony Snicket
10. "Si conocieseis al Conde Olaf y éste de repente os sirviese el desayuno, ¿no temeríais que contuviese algo terrible, como veneno o cristal hecho añicos?"

If you were bored with laying with your chemistry set, and you gave it to your brother in exchange for his dollhouse, that would be a fair deal. If someone offered to smuggle me out of the country in her sailboat, in exchange for free tickets to an ice show, that would be a fair deal. But working for years in a lumbermill in exchange for the owner's trying to keep Count Olaf away is an enormously unfair deal, and the three youngsters knew it."
Author: Lemony Snicket
15. "They tried picturing leaving Uncle Monty and living by themselves, trying to find jobs and take care of each other. It was a very lonely prospect. The Baudelaire children sat in sad silence awhile, and they were each thinking the same thing: They wished that their parents had never been killed in the fire, and that their lives had never been turned topsy-turvy the way they had. If only the Baudelaire parents were still alive, the youngsters wouldn't even have heard of Count Olaf, let alone have him settling into their home and undoubtedly making evil plants"
Author: Lemony Snicket
16. "How clever of you to figure that out,' said a voice at the top of the stairs, and Violet, and Klaus were so surprised they almost dropped the lamp. It was Stephano, or, if you prefer, it was Count Olaf. It was the bad guy."
Author: Lemony Snicket
17. "Count Olaf certainly does sound evil. Imagine forcing children to stand near a stove!"
Author: Lemony Snicket
18. "At this point in the story, I feel obliged to interrupt and give you one last warning. As I said at the very beginning, the book you are holding in your hands does not have a happy ending. It may appear now that Count Olaf will go to jail and that the three Baudelaire youngsters will live happily ever after with Justice Strauss, but it is not so. If you like, you may shut the book this instant and not read the unhappy ending that is to follow. You may spend the rest of your life believing that the Baudelaires triumphed over Count Olaf and lived the rest of their lives in the house and library of Justice Strauss, but that is not how the story goes."
Author: Lemony Snicket

Author: Lemony Snicket
22. "Violet stayed still as a statue. She hadn't been listening to the last speech of Count Olaf's, knowing it would be full of the usual self-congratulatory nonsense and despicable insults."
Author: Lemony Snicket
23. "The Baudelaires looked at one another with bitter smiles. Sunny was right. It wasn't fair that their parents had been taken away from them. It wasn't fair that the evil and revolting Count Olaf was pursuing them wherever they went, caring for nothing but their fortune. It wasn't fair that they moved from relative to relative, with terrible things happening at each of their new homes, as if the Baudelaires were riding on some horrible bus that stopped only at stations of unfaireness and misery."
Author: Lemony Snicket
24. "Count Olaf sounds like an awful person. I hope he is torn apart by wild animals someday. Wouldn't that be satisfying?"

Author: Lemony Snicket
26. "Look!" Mr. Poe said, who was still too far to help but close enough to see. "Genghis has an eye tattoo, like Count Olaf! In fact, I think he IS Count Olaf!""Of course he is!" Violet cried, holding up the unraveled turban."Merd!" Sunny shrieked, holding up a tiny piece of shoelace. She meant something like "That's what we've been trying to tell you."
Author: Lemony Snicket
27. "This isn't fair," Klaus said finally, but he said it so quietly that the departing islanders probably did not hear. Only his sisters heard him, and the snake the Baudelaires thought they would never see again, and of course Count Olaf, who was huddled in the large, ornate bird cage like an imprisoned beast, and who was the only person to answer him. "Life isn't fair," he said, in his undisguised voice, and for once the Baudelaire orphans agreed with every word the man said."
Author: Lemony Snicket

Author: Walt Disney Company
