I did some spring cleaning yesterday and came across a few gems in a book of quotes that I had started writing in:

The moral of the story is...

From Winds of Change by Mercedes Lackey:
Trust your intuition, but never assume anything.

From The Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind:
Nothing is ever easy.

A one-liner from an action movie
"If we live through this," Garrett whispered to Kate, "I'll follow you anywhere, woman."
"Now he tells me," she muttered.


from Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
And they used it in the movie - precisely! It was one of my favourite lines in the whole of the books and movies -- maybe because of Garrett and Kate being one of my favourites of couples of the whole of the movies and books. No, Belle and Cedric Edward were not that. Nope.

This was right before the Battle scene (which ended up not happening even if it did happen in the movie as a fictitious sort of thing).
