Fav Quotes: Demon’s Lexicon

Recently I reread The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan… Honestly, I love it so much every time, this time I thought I’d make a collection of chosen quotes that I found the most funny, touching, wise or simply likable…

“That had been one of Dad’s first lessons: Try to act just like everyone else. If you failed to blend in, the magicians would find you.”

“She grinned a sudden, unexpected grin, and he almost smiled back at her, but then he recalled she was invading his home and looked right through her until her smile melted away”

“He wished sometimes that he could feel angry without feeling the urge to kill, but he never had.”

“He hated talking to strangers. Sooner or later, he always said something that pulled someone up short, and then he had to glare them all into submission.”
“His brother looked sad and kind, but then, Alan never looked kinder than when he was lying to someone.”

“Fear is useless. Either something bad happens or it doesn’t: if it doesn’t, you’ve wasted time being afraid, and if it does, you’ve wasted time that you could have spent sharpening your weapons.”

“It was not yet dawn and the sea air hit Nick’s face like a series of slaps with icy hands.”

“Mum’s hands were small, very thin at the wrists, and Nick stared at them and thought about his own hands, large hands with long, brutal-looking fingers made to curve around a sword hilt or a neck.”

“They had no car because Nick had abandoned it on Tower Bridge, so they had to take the Tube to go hunting for magicians.”

“You’ve been okay to me sometimes, but I can’t tell if that means you like me. I don’t know if you like anyone, I don’t know if you CAN like anyone. I thought at least there was Alan, but then you hit him.” […]
“I’ve never thought about you enough to dislike you.” Nick said. “I just think you’re useless.”

“Do you want to tell me? While I’m still young?”

“It seemed that the word “home”, once learned, was hard to forget.”


And I will stay up through the night, let’s be clear, I won’t close my eyes. And I know that I can survive I walked through fire to save my life. And I want it, I want my life so bad, I’m doing everything I can. Then another one bites the dust,
                    it’s hard to lose a CHOSEN ONE
