Quote Unquote: The Evolution of Mara Dyer

Quote Unquote is a series of posts of my favorite quotes from certain books. Today I am doing The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins. This is the second book in the Mara Dyer series. Gahhh this book! Such a cliffhanger. 

~“Everyone is a little crazy. The only difference between us and them is that they hide it better.” 

~“I knew Noah worshipped Charlie Parker and that his toothbrush was green. That he wouldn't bother to button his shirts correctly but always made his bed. That when he slept he curled into himself and that his eyes were the color of the clouds before it rained, and I knew he had no problem eating meat but would stubly leave the room if animals started to kill one another on the Discovery Channel. I knew one hundered little things about Noah Shaw but when he kissed me I couldn't remember my own name.”

~“But when everyone tells you you're crazy and no one believes you when you swear you aren't, a small part of you will always wonder if they're right.”

~“We are far too screwed up for a goddamned love triangle.”

~“They rattled my cage to see if I'd bite. When they released me, they'd see that the answer was yes.”

~“If I were to live a thousand years, I would belong to you for all of them. If we were to live a thousand lives, I would want to make you mine in each one.”

~“I did something brave, then. Or stupid. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.”

~“How long do you want me?" he asked.
How long can I have you? I thought.”

~“This was the boy I loved. A little bit messy. A little bit ruined. A beautiful disaster. Just like me.”

~“My brother cleared his throat. "I wish she knew that I think she is the most hilarious person on Earth. And that whenever she's not home, I feel like I'm missing my partner in crime."My throat tightened. Do not cry. Do not cry.
"I wish she knew that she's really Mom's favorite--"
I shook my head here.
"--the princess she always wanted. That Mom used to dress her up like a little doll and parade her around like Mara was her greatest achievement. I wish Mara knew that I never minded, because she's my favorite too.”

That last one gets me every time. T.T Which quote is your favorite?
