Antonia’s Top Ten Tuesday: Dialogue Quotes

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is memorable things characters have said (quotes from characters that have stuck with you).

“I penetrated the outer cell membrane with a nanosyringe.”
“You poked it with a stick?”
“No!” I said. “Well. Yes. But it was a scientific poke with a very scientific stick.”
― Andy Weir, Project Hail Mary

“Excellent,” M-Bot said. “Would you like your corpse cremated or ejected into space?”
― Brandon Sanderson, Starsight

“I’ll tell you a secret, Hanna. The really bad monsters never look like monsters.”

“You’re some kind of thief, then?”
“That a very narrow-minded way of looking at it. I prefer to think of myself as a merchant of delicate tasks.”
― S.A. Chakraborty, The City of Brass

“What would friendship entail?” “Well, on Wednesdays, we sacrifice a cat to Satan.”
