bookish thoughts for a snowy day

A quiet, snowy day like today brings absolute, perfect reading conditions. So I'm spending the day drinking coffee and reading. Here are some book quotes I'd like to share. :)
Have you read any of these?

"What are you?" I whispered.
He shrugged again.
"Something," he said. "Something like you, something like a beast, something like a bird, something like an angel." He laughed again. "Something like that."
- Michael and The Creature, Skellig (David Almand)

"If a man has to say 'Trust me' it's a sure sign you cannot. Trust him, that is. Trust is a thing you do without words."
- Gogu the Frog, Wildwood Dancing (Juliet Marillier)

"Here's what I think," I say, and my voice is stronger and thoughts are coming, thoughts that trickle into my nose like whispers of truth. "I think maybe everyone falls," I say.
"I think maybe we all do. And I don't think that's the asking."
I pull on her arms gently to make sure she's listening.
"I think the asking is whether we get back up again."
- Todd, The Knife of Never Letting Go (Patrick Ness)

"That's the worst of girls," Edmund said to Peter and the Dwarf. "They never can carry a map in their heads."
"That's because our heads have something inside them," said Lucy.
- Edmund and Lucy, Prince Caspian (C.S. Lewis)

"What a diva!"
"Stupid, men can't be divas."
"Divo, then."
"That just sounds weird. Call him a jerk and be done with it."
- the fairies, in Eyes Like Stars (Lisa Mantchev)

"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"
- Dumbledore, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (J.K. Rowling)

"I tell you to think black thoughts and you come up with that?!" the lieutenant had screamed.
"Is a guinea pig bad? Do you consider a guinea pig the representation of all that is evil?"
"Maybe...if it's an evil guinea pig."
- The Looking Glass Wars (Frank Beddor)

If you're in part of the country that got hit with the massive snow storm, I hope you're staying warm and everything!
