Favorite Sabella Quotes

1. "I think you are talented and passionate, Isabella. More than you think and less than you expect. But there are a lot of people with talent and passion, and many of them never get anywhere. This is only the first step for achieving anything in life. Natural talent is like an athlete's strength. You can be born with more or less ability, but nobody can become an athlete just because he or she was born tall, or strong, or fast. What makes the athlete, or the artist, is the work, the vocation and the technique. The intelligence you are born with is just ammunition. To achieve something with it you need to transform your mind into a high-precision weapon."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
2. "Toda a arte é agressiva, Isabella. E toda a vida de artista é uma pequena ou uma grande guerra, a começar pelo próprio e pelas suas limitações. Para chegar a alguma coisa que te proponhas é preciso primeiro a ambição e depois o talento, o conhecimento e, por fim, a oportunidade."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
3. "Uno de los primeros recursos propios del escritor profesional que Isabella había aprendido de mí era el arte y la práctica de procrastinar. Todo veterano del oficio sabe que cualquier ocupación, desde afilar el lápiz hasta catalogar musarañas, tiene prioridad al acto de sentarse a la mesa y exprimir el cerebro. Isabella había absorbido por ósmosis esta lección fundamental y al llegar a casa, en vez de encontrarla en su escritorio, la sorprendí en la cocina afinando los últimos toques a una cena que olía y lucía como si su elaboración hubiera sido cuestión de varias horas."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
4. "It wouldn't be my move," Jace agreed. " First the candy and flowers, then the apology letters, THEN the ravenous demon hordes. In that order.""He might have sent her candy and flowers," Isabelle said. "We don't know." "Isabelle," said Hodge patiently, "this is the man who rained down destruction on Idris the like of which it had never seen,who set shadowhunter against Downworlder and made the streets of the Glass City run with blood.""That's sort of hot," Isabella argued, " that evil thing."
Author: Cassandra Clare
5. "Isabella with her whip and boots and knives would chop anyone who tried to pen her up in a tower into pieces, build a bridge out of the remains, and walk carelessly to freedom, her hair looking fabulous the entire time."
Author: Cassandra Clare
6. "Good evening, Miss Fairmont."She saw Black sprawled out in a wingback chair, jacketless, the white shirt he wore unbuttoned to the waist, revealing an enticing view of his chest and the fine black hair that was hidden beneath. "I was beginning to wonder if you would come tonight. It is midnight after all."On cue the large pendulum clock in the hall began to chime out the hour. Isabella met his gaze, marveled at the dark layers in his eyes. He appeared at once indolent, yet supremely masculine, and in his state of dishabille he was utterly breathtaking."
Author: Charlotte Featherstone
7. "The crimson satin lining gleamed in the firelight, and so, too, did his eyes. When he looked up at her, there was a mist to them once again."Little magpie," he whispered as he looked at the black onyx ring. "You gave up everything for this, didn't you?"She nodded. "That is how much I trust you. Everything I had hidden away in that biscuit jar went to this. All my worldly goods are in that ring, Jude.""Then I will take it and hold it close, and never give you cause for regret." He put the ring on his index finger, and Isabella grinned. How perfect it looked—how utterly sensual. She wanted that ringed hand on her body, comforting her. Loving her."
Author: Charlotte Featherstone
8. "Jude," she whispered as she touched his face. "I'm so frightened of this. This bind that links us. It whispers to me to take what you're offering, but I fear the consequences. I have lived the consequences."His fingertips traced the column of her throat down over the swells of her breasts where they lingered until her breath caught. "I am not your father, Isabella, and you are not your mother.""I know, but—""There are no certainties in life," he murmured as he lowered his head and kissed the apex of her breast where her heart hammered so hard. "But I can give you this certainty. I love you. And I want you. I have wanted you for so long, and that feeling has only grown. There must be trust between us, Isabella. Passion is not enough for me. I want more from you.""You ask for so much," she said, then trailed off."Not any more than I am offering you."
Author: Charlotte Featherstone
9. "Isabella: "Why are you being so mean to me?"Harry: "Because i love you"Isabella: "Does that ever work?"Harry: "On my mother it does."Isabella: "I'm not your mother."Harry: "I know that already, because I'm enjoying your company."
Author: Claire LaZebnik
10. "I never say to him, 'Let this or that enemy alone, because it would be ungenerous or cruel to harm them'; I say, 'Let them alone, because I should hate them to be wronged': and he'd crush you like a sparrow's egg, Isabella , if he found you a troublesome charge."
Author: Emily Brontë
11. "Is she sane?' asked Mrs. Linton, appealing to me. ‘I'll repeat our conversation, word for word, Isabella; and you point out any charm it could have had for you."
Author: Emily Brontë
12. "I am inundated with feeling. I feel like a pinball machine on tilt. All the buzzers are ringing, lights are flashing, and I am about to fry my circuits. Nothing is coming in,and nothing is going out. I feel electrified. The wires ignited, sparked, and fizzled. I want it all to slow down. I go right to the water to douse my flame. I immerse myself in the hot water. I want to wash the smells off my body. I can smell Isabella's hair, her breath, and her child vaginal scent. My hair smells of smoke,and I want to wash Francis off me."
Author: Holly A. Smith
13. "I am overcome with exhaustion and an overwhelming sense of loneliness. As I am driving home, I stop at a red light and I begin to cry. I feel an overlap of feelings that are indescribable. I feel a sense of self-sufficiency and reserve. I am at once removed from myself. This was me today who accomplished this feat, yet I feel empty and bereft. I feel puffed up and deflated all at once. I feel false in myself. I wonder who gave me the power or the right to step into the lives of these people and make such profoundly life-altering decisions. I have no children. I have just walked fresh out the door of graduate school. I am a baby. I am humbled. I feel a sense of shame. I feel that I am an imposter, a sham. I never want to be so pompous and self-satisfied that I am consumed by the deed, losing sight of the purpose, the being named Isabella, and all the Isabella that have yet to come."
Author: Holly A. Smith
14. "The Anne Rice books are a lot about infection. I read "Interview With the Vampire" a million times when I was in seventh and eighth grade. Also, [writing Gavriel's backstory] definitely came from those books: I sat down and reread them all and thought a lot about… the way in which vampirism is pushing away from humanity in interesting ways, and creating something new from humanity. I imprinted on those books pretty hard.Tanith Lee's "Sabella or the Blood Stone" was a big inspiration. I absolutely loved her books; when I was a kid, I wrote many bad Tanith Lee pastiches. Susie McKee Charnas' "The Vampire Tapestry." Poppy Z. Brite's "Lost Souls." Nancy Collins' "Sunglasses After Dark," which sounds like the most '80s title ever. It's about a vampire named Sonja Blue, and she goes around killing vampires. She's the only vampire who's half-alive. It's a really fun, blood-filled romp. It's very "Blade" before "Blade"--with a lady."
Author: Holly Black
15. "Manfred, Prince of Otranto, had one son and one daughter: the latter, a most beautiful virgin, aged eighteen, was called Matilda. Conrad, the son, was three years younger, a homely youth, sickly, and of no promising disposition; yet he was the darling of his father, who never showed any symptoms of affection to Matilda. Manfred had contracted a marriage for his son with the Marquis of Vicenza's daughter, Isabella; and she had already been delivered by her guardians into the hands of Manfred, that he might celebrate the wedding as soon as Conrad's infirm state of health would permit."
Author: Horace Walpole
16. "Thank you, Isabella." Legna reached to squeeze the little Enforcer's dirty hand affectionately. "And do not worry about your hair. Gideon can fix it. Right, Gideon?""If you desire it."Legna paused and looked up into the Demon's steady silver eyes, wondering why he'd worded his response in such a way. Was it her imagination, or had he directed that to her and not to Bella? However, he seemed just as indifferent as always, and she shrugged it off."
Author: Jacquelyn Frank
17. "Poor Isabella;—which poor Isabella, passing her life with those she doated on, full of their merits, blind to their faults, and always innocently busy, might have been a model of right feminine happiness."
Author: Jane Austen
18. "Mrs. Weston's friends were all made happy by her safety; and if the satisfaction of her well-doing could be increased to Emma, it was by knowing her to be the mother of a little girl. She had been decided in wishing for a Miss Weston. She would not acknowledge that it was with any view of making a match for her, hereafter, with either of Isabella's sons; but she was convinced that a daughter would suit both father and mother best. It would be a great comfort to Mr. Weston, as he grew older— and even Mr. Weston might be growing older ten years hence—to have his fireside enlivened by the sports and the nonsense, the freaks and the fancies of a child never banished from home; and Mrs. Weston— no one could doubt that a daughter would be most to her; and it would be quite a pity that any one who so well knew how to teach, should not have their powers in exercise again."
Author: Jane Austen
19. "Well, then, I must say that I do not like him at all. Though it has turned out so well for us, I do not like him at all. As it happens, there is no great harm done, because I do not think Isabella has any heart to lose. But, suppose he had made her very much in love with him?"
Author: Jane Austen
20. "You feel, I suppose, that, in losing Isabella, you lose half yourself: you feel a void in your heart which nothing else can occupy.  Society is becoming irksome; and as for the amusements in which you were wont to share at Bath, the very idea of which without her is abhorrent.  You would not, for instance, now go to a ball for the world.  You feel that you have no longer any friend to whom you can speak with unreserve; on whose regard you can place dependence; or whose counsel, in any difficult, you could rely on."
Author: Jane Austen
21. "Good heaven! My dear Isabella, what do you mean? Can you -- can you really be in love with James?"
Author: Jane Austen
22. "Get me into the game, Izzy," Cameron said when he reached Isabella at the edge of Hart's well-groomed lawn. Pairs of ladies and gentlemen waited beyond, a few gentlemen swinging mallets and rolling shoulders to show off for the ladies.Isabella turned to Cameron in surprise. "We're playing croquet.""Yes, I know what the devil it is. Give me a damned mallet.""But you hate croquet." Isabella continued to blink green eyes at him."I don't hate it today. I want you to pair me with Mrs. Douglas.""Ah." Isabella's surprised look turned to one of interest. "Mrs. Douglas, is it?"
Author: Jennifer Ashley
23. "I assume we'll make a stop in London?" Ainsley asked. "I can't imagine you'd run straight through to Paris tonight, would you? If I could find a room at a respectable hotel, I can sort through my things and decide what I truly need to take. Isabella thought the lot, but I think she is optimistic."Cameron unstuck his tongue from the roof of his mouth. "We'll stop in London," he said, his voice gruff. "Not in a hotel. In Hart's house; he keeps it ready. In the morning, we'll marry."
Author: Jennifer Ashley
24. "I think I miss Ben," she told Lauren one night. "No, you don't," Lauren said. "But sometimes, I really think I do." Lauren sighed. "Isabella, you miss the essence of a boy. That's all."
Author: Jennifer Close

Author: Jim Benton
26. "Things Isabella Wouldn't Care About: - Titanic sinking again. - Metror striking Earth and landing directly on top of world's most innocent panda. - Titanic sinking again and this time the entire crew is puppies."
Author: Jim Benton
27. "With duller steel than the Perséan sword They cut away no formless monster's head, But one, whose gentleness did well accord With death, as life. The ancient harps have said, Love never dies, but lives, immortal Lord: If Love impersonate was ever dead, Pale Isabella kiss'd it, and low moan'd. 'Twas love; cold,--dead indeed, but not dethroned."
Author: John Keats
28. "Miss Martin," he said. "How on earth did you get a name like Isabella?" Just one of the many things that he'd wondered about as he had sat hunched behind his desk over the weekend.She shook her head, obviously confused by the change of subject, but then smiled. "Ah, it was my mother. I received my imagination from her. She was constantly telling me stories about Spanish princesses and English princes. She named me Isabella after the Spanish Queen."See, Anthony thought, nothing so extravagant that it should be pondered to death over an entire weekend."
Author: Mia Ryan
29. "From our few days together, I have only one regret. Why did I not love you harder, stronger? If I could have you Love, now, I'd hold you so closely that our particles would absorb into one another. - Isabella de Reims"
Author: Nick Bantock
30. "His favorite saying was, 'Interdum feror cupidine partium magnarum europe vincendarum.""'Sometimes I have the urge to conquer large parts of Europe'?" Boyd said, sounding a little incredulous. Isabella hadn't, apparently, been the only one who understood her defiance.She nodded. "Usually he only said it when my brother or I were being particularly horrible."
Author: Patricia Briggs
31. "Dr Isabella Perugini stopped on the bank opposite us, her dark hair pulled back in a ponytail, her white lab coat falling below her knees. She slid off her high heeled shoes and began to pick her way across the stream, trying to balance on the rocks jutting out of the water. Her dark complexion was more flushed than usual, her eyes narrowed at me. "You again?" She said it as she executed a hop from one rock to another. "I thought I sorted you out!"
Author: Robert J. Crane
32. "Isabella Swan?" He looked up at me through his impossibly long lashes, his golden eyes soft but, somehow, still scorching. "I promise to love you forever—every single day of forever. Will you marry me?"There were many things I wanted to say, some of them not nice at all, and others more disgustingly gooey and romantic than he probably dreamed I was capable of. Rather than embarrass myself with either, I whispered, "Yes.""Thank you," he said simply. He took my left hand and kissed each of my fingertips before he kissed the ring that was now mine."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
33. "My last night as Isabella Swan. Tomorrow night, I would be Bella Cullen. Though the whole marriage ordeal was a thorn in my side, I had to admit that I liked the sound of that. - bella swan"
Author: Stephenie Meyer
34. "Edward: «Isabella Swan?» Mi guardò da dietro quelle ciglia incredibilmente lunghe, con occhi dorati, dolci e al tempo stesso ardenti. «Prometto di amarti per sempre, ogni singolo giorno, per l'eternità. Mi vuoi sposare?» Avrei voluto dire un sacco di cose, alcune per niente affatto belle, altre vergognosamente sdolcinate e romantiche, che forse nemmeno nei suoi sogni mi aveva mai sentito dire. Eppure, invece di sentirmi in imbarazzo, sussurrai: «Sì»."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
35. "Parlando di Edward:Jacob:«È come una droga per te, Bella. Ormai ho capito che senza di lui non puoi vivere. È troppo tardi. Ma io sarei stato una scelta più sana. Non una droga: io sarei stato l'aria, il sole»Isabella: «Anch'io ne ero convinta, sai. Eri come un sole. Il mio sole personale. Il rimedio migliore alle nuvole»Jacob: «Con le nuvole posso farcela. Ma non posso cavarmela contro un'eclissi»"

Aceitas casar comigo?Havia muitas coisas que gostava de lhe dizer, muitas delas pouco simpáticas e outras tão lamechas e românticas que ele provavelmente nem sequer sonhara que eu seria capaz de as dizer. Em vez de me envergonhar com qualquer uma, murmurei:- Sim"
Author: Stephenie Meyer

Author: Victoria Dahl
