Tamora Pierce Quote: “Daja doesn’t exactly need to be tested on whether she’s honorable or not.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “When we return – when I have delivered our discovery – I will give you a book to read about a thing called wild magic,” she said drily. “I wouldn’t talk about it in the university. It’s supposed to be an old wives’ tale. Well, I am an old wife. You might be interested, that’s all.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “But, Sergeant Osbern, Sir, I like my head.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “You get too excited over big flashes, Tunstall. Mages rely on that to make you think they have more power than you.”

Tamora Pierce Quote: “Mistresses, have you ever noticed that when we disagree with a male- I hesitate to say ‘man’- or find ourselves in a position over males, the first comment they make is always about our reputations or our monthlies?”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “A knight must develop all his abilities, to the fullest.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “I bet his mother was a wyvern. -Scamp.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Folk caught up in a riot aren’t our cousins and sisters, our brothers and uncles. They are part of a big animal with many arms and claws, armed with stones and sticks.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Don’t make me regret taking you on. If I get irritated, I might drown you a little bit.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “You’ll see. I’m as good as any boy. I’m better. – Kel.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Ozorne, please don’t let him try to make me into a battle mage. I wish you’d told me that’s what you wanted.” Arram stopped and grabbed his friend by the arms. “I won’t do it. I’m not a killer. I’ll never be a killer.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “And I think Alanna would quote Sean Connery from “The Untouchables” to you: “At the end of your shift, go home alive.” She would say, Don’t think about being brave or working hard – just do what you need to do. When you look back, you’ll be surprised to see that this was exactly enough.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “People are jackals, always willing to feed off someone else’s kill.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Feelings, she learned, were hard to fight. She treasured his smiles and compliments and tried not to dwell on the fact that he gave this things to his friend Kel.

Tamora Pierce Quote: “When I told you don’t touch me to wake me, ever, because I’ve been in a war and I react violently, you respected me.” For a plant person, Rosethorn could sound like iron when she made a point with someone stupid. “Evvy was in that same war. She fought as hard as any adult – harder, sometimes. Yet you refuse to acknowledge that she may suffer the same effects.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “You come from a race that spends more time murdering your own kind than do all the immortals put together, yet you insist you are better than us.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Sweetheart, never listen to what my enemies say. They’re very confused people. I know they are because I’ve spent years making them that way.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “I hate those things,” grumbled Kel as she removed the bowstring.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “You choose tools for a task by their crafting, not their look,” a crow said crisply from a nearby tree. He flapped over to land on a barrel in front of the cottage. “A smith’s finest hammer will be streaked with soot.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Tortall and the Queens Riders!”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “If I were useful, you wouldn’t know it was me.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “That’s all this job is, Daine,” she explained. “Trying to please everyone and pleasing no one. And it will only get worse, not better.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “One of the things I strive for is realism. I need to be as real as possible in the dilemmas my characters face.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Never before had she seen such creatures, though they looked much live very large, very shaggy white goats. Thin black horns punctuated the top of their long faces. You look like a collection of grandfathers, she thought, amused.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “He doesn’t need my help coming up with pranks. He’s got too many ideas of his own. – Daja referring to Briar in their first year at Discipline cottage.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “Most humans think the appearance of quiet is quiet. They do not see that sometimes the enemy is as quiet as the serpent. Only when it has stolen all of their eggs will they know bad walks in the quiet as well as the noisy.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “The wolf who sings alone is not happy.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “It was like trying to balance on a pair of knife blades. Who had thought of this mad form of travel in the first place? And why had no one locked them up before they passed their dangerous ideas on to others?”

Tamora Pierce Quote: “Don’t we teach our women to view all men according to the actions of a few?”

Tamora Pierce Quote: “We’ve got to protect Jonathan and Darkness, don’t we?” She swung herself onto Moonlight’s back. “Let’s go, girl.” As one of the last fighters to the point, Alanna could clearly see that the enemy had advanced past the trees, engaging Jon’s men in the clearing around the main path. She glimpsed Jonathan’s silver and sapphire gleaming in the thick of the battle as Darkness reared to fight as well. Myles was beside the prince, with Gary and Raoul flanking them both. The enemy would have trouble.”
Tamora Pierce Quote: “You don’t think history gets rewritten, sometimes?”
