1. "We stepped a little quicker, laughed a little louder and chatted over the fences a little longer. We gathered bouquets of wildflowers, dined on fresh strawberries and began to ride our bikes up and down the Third Line again. We ran up grassy hills and rolled back down through the young clover, feeling light and giddy, free from our heavy boots and coats. There were trilliums to pick for Mother and tadpoles to catch and keep in a jar. Spring had come at last to Bathurst Township and was she ever worth the wait!"

2. "More than that, these adverts sell a dubious world view. They sell the idea that science is not about the delicate relationship between evidence and theory. They suggest, instead, with all the might of their international advertising budgets, their Microcellular Complexes, their Neutrillium XY, their Tenseur Peptidique Végétal and the rest, that science is about impenetrable nonsense involving equations, molecules, sciencey diagrams, sweeping didactic statements from authority figures in white coats, and that this sciencey-sounding stuff might just as well be made up, concocted, confabulated out of thin air, in order to make money. They sell the idea that science is incomprehensible, with all their might, and they sell this idea mainly to attractive young women, who are disappointingly under-represented in the sciences."
Author: Ben Goldacre
3. "So," Marasi said, "you traded a dead man's scarf for another dead man's gun. But…the gun itself belonged to someone dead, so by the same logic—""Don't try," Waxillium said. "Logic doesn't work on Wayne.""I bought a ward against it off a traveling fortune-teller," Wayne explained. "It lets me add two 'n' two and get a pickle."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
4. "Well," Waxillium said. "Perhaps I should begin by asking after your health.""Perhaps you should," Steris replied."Er. Yes. How's your health?""Suitable.""So is Waxillium," Wayne added.They all turned to him."You know," he said. "He's wearing a suit, and all. Suitable. Ahem. Is that mahogany?"
Author: Brandon Sanderson
5. "What wasdat, sir? What wazzat sir? What wassat, sir?""Wayne, what are you babbling about?" Waxillium asked."Practicing my pretzel guy," Wayne said. "He had a great accent..."Waxillium glanced at him. "That hat looks ridiculous.""Fortunately, I can change hats," Wayne said in the pretzel-guy accent, "while you, sir, are stuck with that face."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
6. "It's all right Wayne," Waxillium said softly. "I've made a promise. I told Lord Harms I'd return Steris to him. And I will. That is that.""Then I will remain and help," Marasi said. "That is that.""And I could really use some food," Wayne added. "Fat is fat."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
7. "Wayne's a little attached to that hat," Waxillium said. "He thinks it's lucky."Wayne: "It is lucky. I ain't never died while wearing that hat." Marasi frowned. "I ... I'm not sure I know how to respond."Wax: "That's a common reaction to Wayne."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
8. "So, Wax," Wayne butted in. "Where did you say that bloke was who had my hat?""I told you that he got away after I shot him.""I was hoping he'd dropped my hat, you know. Getting shot makes people drop stuff."Waxillium sighed. "He still had it on when he left, I'm afraid."Wayne started cursing."Wayne," Marasi said. "It's only a hat.""Only a hat?" he asked, aghast."Wayne's a little attached to that hat," Waxillium said. "He thinks it's lucky.""It is lucky. I ain't never died while wearing that hat."

Author: Nalini Singh
10. "Illium sonrió, desvengonzado.-¿Queréis intentarlo de nuevo? Me moveré más despacio (ambos sois mucho más viejos, después de todo) -Las últimas palabras fueron un susurro conspirador.Galen miró a Rafael.-¿Cómo ha sobrevivido todo este tiempo?-Nadie puede atraparlo."
Author: Nalini Singh
11. "Honor miró por la ventana... y vio la sobrecogedora imagen de un ángel con alas de color azul plateado aterrizando en la zona verde del césped.-Es... -Se quedó sin aliento.Había visto fotos, incluso imágenes de televisión, que mostraban a aquel ángel de alas azules, pero ninguna de ellas le hacía justicia. Nada podría hacérsela.Resultaba mucho más impactante de cerca. No le quitó la vista de encima mientras se reunían con él junto al coche. Tenía los ojos del color del oro veneciano, el cabello negro con matices azules, y un rostro de una belleza tan pura que resultaba casi demasiado hermoso. Casi.Era, sencillamente, la criatura más hermosa que había visto en su vida.-Soy Illium -dijo el ángel mirándola a los ojos.Honor estuvo a punto de esbozar una sonrisa al ver la curiosidad pintada en sus iris dorados.-Yo soy Honor."
Author: Nalini Singh
12. "Illium, his expression subdued as it had been for too many days, turned to her. "Mind if I have a go?""Kick his ass."Stripping off his shirt and boots, Illium held out his hand for one of Venom's blades. Lips curving, Venom passed it over. "Sure you can handle me, pretty, pretty Bluebell?""Did I ever tell you about my snakeskin boots?" A savage grin, and she knew Venom was about to bear the brunt of whatever haunted the blue-winged angel.Venom swirled his blade in hand. "I do think I need some new feathers for my pillow."
Author: Nalini Singh
13. "Are your eyelashes like your hair?""Yes. They're very beautiful—want to see?"Her lips twitched. "Vanity is a sin,Bluebell.""When you have it, flaunt it, I say."-Elena and Illium"
Author: Nalini Singh
14. "I think Illium can take care of himself." "Not if he keeps flirting with you." A fine, almost elegant tendril of heat, champagne and sunshine, decadence in the light. "Raphael's not the sharing kind."
Author: Nalini Singh
15. "Wave to the nice tourists, Sparkle. I promise it won't cause pestilence and firestorms."Elena bit the inside of her cheek at Aodhan's glare-she'd never seen anyone crack his reserved shell. "Sparkle and Bluebell, nice.""Never," Aodhan said, hands stubbornly on the girder, "ever repeat that. Illium seems to have forgotten I promised to separate his tongue from his mouth should he utter it again in this immortal lifetime."
Author: Nalini Singh
16. "The two angels were both tall, but Aodhan was perhaps an inch taller, and now his eyes locked with Illium's for a long, quiet moment before he lowered his head slightly. Illium raised his hand, the movement slow, hesitant....and then his fingers brushed Aodhan's cheek just below the cut that had almost sealed. The first ray of dawn kissed the tear that rolled down Illium's face, caressed the painful wonder on Aodhan's as he lifted his hand to clasp the wrist of his friend's hand.That instant of contact, the power of it, stole her breath.Then Illium smiled, said something that made Aodhan's lips curve-Elena thought it might've been "Welcome back, Sparkle"-and they were separating to sweep off the Tower in a symphony of wild silver blue and heartbreaking light."Raphael," she whispered, having felt him come up behind her. "Did you see?""Yes." His hand on her nape, his thumb brushing over her pulse. "Of course it would be Illium who reached him," he murmured."
Author: Nalini Singh
17. "It was a white-collar crime."Illium gave her an odd look. "In the human world, such crimes are lightly punished, though they harm hundreds, leading some to choose death out of despair, while the man who beats a single person is considered the worse criminal."
Author: Nalini Singh
18. "He has a fascination with mortals.Raphael had said that to her before she'd woken with wings of midnight and dawn."Why are you starting at me, Ellie?" Illium said without taking his eyes from the blade dancing around his fingers.The words were instinctive, something she might as easily have said to rib Ransom. "You're so pretty, it's difficult to resist."A flashing grin, a hint of that aristocratic English accent in his response. "It's hard to be me, it's true."
Author: Nalini Singh
19. "Even as she spoke, silver blue flashed on her other side and then Illium was standing beside her, his wing touching Elena's in an intimacy that made Raphael raise an eyebrow. Illium's lips curved in a wicked smile that did little to hide the intensity of his emotions. I would not watch you die again, Sire. His veins stood out against his skin as he gripped the wrist of one hand with the other.Raphael met those eyes of gold that had stood beside him for centuries. If I had done so, I would have gone knowing you would keep my heart safe.Illium's gaze went to Elena. Always."
Author: Nalini Singh
20. "Illium says that perhaps I can use them to flutter someone to death.- Aodhan to Jason, Archangel's Storm"
Author: Nalini Singh
21. "Bluebell, you couldn't take me if I was blindfolded and had both hands tied behind my back.""Bluebell?" Illium narrowed his eyes. "That's it, Barbarian."
Author: Nalini Singh
22. "Illium seems far too pretty to be dangerous." Dmitri's male beauty, by contrast, was a darker, edgier thing."No one ever expects him to take out a blade and slice off their balls," he said with lethal amusement in his tone as he drove them toward the GeorgeWashington Bridge. "He does it with such grace, too."
Author: Nalini Singh
23. "She sat very still, listening to a stream gurgling, the breeze soughing through upper branches, the melodious kloo-klack of ravens, the nyeep-nyeep of nuthatches - all sounds chokingly beautiful. She felt she could hear the cool clean breath of growing things - fern fronds, maple leaves, white trillium petals, tree trunks, each in its rightful place."
