Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Frances Hardinge
#1. If you want someone to tell you what to think ... "
"You will never be short of people willing to do so. #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Cassandra Clare
#2. I believe in good and evil," said Jem. "And I believe the soul is eternal. But I don't believe in the fiery pit, the pitchforks, or endless torment. I do not believe you can threaten people into goodness."
Tessa looked at will. "What about you? What do you believe?
"Pulvis et umbra sumus," said Will, not looking at her as he spoke. "I believe we are dust and shadows. What else is there? #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by A.S. King
#3. I didn't have the time to slice a hundred shallow cuts into his lips and make him suck limes. I was too busy to make him swallow oiled musket balls. I had more important things to think about now and a lot to do. -Saffron in Dust of 100 Dogs #Quote by A.S. King
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Fred Rogers
#4. Very early in our children's lives we will be forced to realize that the "perfect" untroubled life we'd like for them is just a fantasy. In daily living, tears and fights and doing things we don't want to do are all part of our human ways of developing into adults. #Quote by Fred Rogers
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Rob Sheffield
#5. 'The Voice' has lots of singers who fit the 'Idol' mold of young, innocent ingenues with psycho stage moms. But it also has long-suffering adult pros, with a whiff of thirtysomething despair in their voices. That adds an edge of realness. #Quote by Rob Sheffield
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Dave Eggers
#6. Kit, you know the key to relating to your parents now? It's mercy. Children, when they become teenagers and then young adults, grow unforgiving. Anything but perfection is pathos. Children are judgmental on an Old Testament level. All errors are unforgivable, as if a contract of perfection has been broken. But what if one's parents are granted the same mercy, the same empathy as other humans? Children need more Jesus in them. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by David Elkind
#7. Young children learn in a different manner from that of older children and adults, yet we can teach them many things if we adapt our materials and mode of instruction to their level of ability. But we miseducate young children when we assume that their learning abilities are comparable to those of older children and that they can be taught with materials and with the same instructional procedures appropriate to school-age children. #Quote by David Elkind
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Nick Trout
#8. Returning home can be awkward for any college-age kid. We spend our teenage years learning to be obnoxious and short with our parents. We prefer to confide in friends. We connive, we become reclusive, we strive to become remote. We may still have a little voice somewhere deep inside pleading, 'Just keep loving me, I'll come back,' but for the most part, coming home from college is like reaching for the end of an umbilical cord we worked so hard to cut. We enjoy the security, the lazy familiarity, but we have left the nest, proven our capacity for independence, and now demand the respect afforded adults. #Quote by Nick Trout
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Lukasz Laniecki
#9. Who said that parents' beliefs should be adopted by their children? #Quote by Lukasz Laniecki
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Rivka Galchen
#10. Books for young children rarely feature children. They feature animals, or monsters, or, occasionally, children behaving like animals or monsters. Books for adults almost invariably feature adults. #Quote by Rivka Galchen
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Rachael Taylor
#11. Young adults in their late 20s are confronted by so many choices - there are so many different paths to choose. Sometimes I think we just fill our lives with stuff so we don't really make any choice at all, which is certainly incredibly luxurious. #Quote by Rachael Taylor
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Bob Proehl
#12. Part of the job of adults was to set limits. But the last rule, the unspoken rule of any story or journey, is that all limits are suspect. All warnings show only the point where the last story stopped, the boundary past which the map is unmapped. The Kingdom of Here There Be Dragons is the province of explorers, magicians, and kids. #Quote by Bob Proehl
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Caitlin Flanagan
#13. Divorce in a young-adult novel means what being orphaned meant in a fairy tale: vulnerability, danger, unwanted independence. #Quote by Caitlin Flanagan
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Niall Ferguson
#14. least 40 million people died as a result of the epidemic, the majority of them suffocated by a lethal accumulation of blood and other fluid in the lungs. Ironically, unlike most flu epidemics, but like the war that preceded and spread it, the influenza of 1918 disproportionately killed young adults. One in every hundred American males between the ages of 25 and 34 fell victim to the 'Spanish Lady'. #Quote by Niall Ferguson
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Garth Nix
#15. There is a very big difference between writing for children and writing for young adults. The first thing I would say is that 'Young Adult' does not mean 'Older Children', it really does mean young but adult, and the category should be seen as a subset of adult literature, not of children's books. #Quote by Garth Nix
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#16. For fantasy is true, of course. It isn't factual, but it is true. Children know that. Adults know it too, and that is precisely why many of them are afraid of fantasy. They know that its truth challenges, even threatens, all that is false, all that is phony, unnecessary, and trivial in the life they have let themselves be forced into living. They are afraid of dragons, because they are afraid of freedom. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Gerald Chertavian
#17. You have, unfortunately, a K-12 educational system where the requirements to graduate are not the requirements to be college and career-ready. So if you want young adults who are college and career-ready, our K-12 system right now does not have that as its standard. #Quote by Gerald Chertavian
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Joe Eszterhas
#18. I'm not suggesting at all that we take away all of the characters' vices. I am suggesting that this particular vice is so insidious, so nefarious, and so deadly that simply by glamorizing it or poisoning our young adults, and I think it's a very separate category, but in no way am I suggesting that we move on from banning smoking in movies to banning drinking, or whatever else we want to do. #Quote by Joe Eszterhas
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Shane Warren Jones
#19. Adults trying to protect children from reality, right? And adults always trying to fill children with fantasy - the tooth fairy, Santa, make-believe games, etc. But kids are really smart, I think they know from an early age about death, this void and hole they are immediately traveling toward. #Quote by Shane Warren Jones
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Tim Clinton
#20. Often, our misunderstandings about love are born in disruptive family relationships, where someone was either one-up or one-down to an extreme. There is an appropriate and necessary difference in the balance of power between parents and young children, but in the best situations, there should be no power struggles by the time those children have become adults - just deep connection, trust, and respect between people who sincerely care about each other.
In disruptive families, children are taught to remain one-up or one-down into adulthood. And this produces immature adults who either seek to dominate others (one-up) or who allow themselves to be dominated (one-down) in their relationships - one powerful and one needy, one enabling and one addicted, one decisive and one confused.
In relationships with these people, manipulation abounds. Especially when they start to feel out of control. #Quote by Tim Clinton
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by John Green
#21. Ben, if you get pee in my brand-new car, I am going to cut your balls off."
Still peeing, Ben looks over at me smirking. "You´re gonna need a hell of a big knife, bro. #Quote by John Green
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by M.T. Anderson
#22. It sometimes strikes me that there is only one taboo left in young adult literature. By and large, no one complains any more when we write about drugs or sex. We can write about masturbation; terminal illness; the horrors of war; illegal organ transplants; matricide; the chilly delights of necrophilia; scenes of locker-room bukkake – none of this raises an eyebrow. No, the one thing which still causes people pause – the final hurdle – the last frontier – the one element which still gets a few adult readers up in arms about whether a book is appropriate for kids – is intelligence. Some adults still balk at the assumption that our readers, the teenagers of this country, are smart, and curious, and get a kick out of knowing things.

One of the great things about writing YA today is that this is changing. #Quote by M.T. Anderson
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Nicholas Chong
#23. All the talk about virgins recently had made him secretly yearn for some of the Nectar that they produced in their young wombs.It must have been at least fifty years since he had last tasted a virgin`s Nectar. And that came from the lovely Metis, the neighbour`s daughter, who subsequently became his wife.
Virgins were supposed to have hymens, yet he had never seen his wife`s hymen."You don`t notice such things when you are young", he told himself. All his three daughters had grown up from virgins to adults without him ever noticing them having hymens. They were all happily married now, with families of their own.[MMT] #Quote by Nicholas Chong
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by David Levithan
#24. Holden Caulfield is the embodiment of what we mean by the phrase "young adult" – too young to be a grown-up, but too wise to the world to be completely innocent. He's caught in the in-between, and that in-between is what all young adult authors write about. #Quote by David Levithan
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Meg Wolitzer
#25. The generation that had information, but no context. Butter, but no bread. Craving, but no longing. #Quote by Meg Wolitzer
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Andrew Root
#26. Here we see a young man in an empty room, checking his watch as no one comes to share in the refreshments he has carefully placed on the table behind him. There is some comfort for those of us taking the theological turn in youth ministry to hear of Bonhoeffer's own failures, especially with young adults. We also often find it hard to create the spaces to connect with young adults. And if Bonhoeffer is our forefather, it is important to recognize his failures as much as his glowing successes. #Quote by Andrew Root
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Edward St. Aubyn
#27. Above all, she was a baby, not a 'big baby' like so many adults, but a small baby perfectly preserved in the pickling jar of money, alcohol and fantasy. #Quote by Edward St. Aubyn
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Craig Stone
#28. When we're young nothing offends us, except adults telling us what should. Then when we become adults, nothing offends us, except we are offended on behalf of our young. #Quote by Craig Stone
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Vianka Van Bokkem
#29. I was 17 years old when I was killed by a vampire-Ruby Kennedy from My Handsome Vampire. #Quote by Vianka Van Bokkem
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by V.C. Andrews
#30. Then turn your eyes back on me,
and tell me that Cathy and I are still children to be treated with condescension, and are incapable of understanding adult subjects. #Quote by V.C. Andrews
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#31. I do not believe in a child world. It is a fantasy world. I believe the child should be taught from the very first that the whole world is his world, that adult and child share one world, that all generations are needed. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Michio Kaku
#32. Something as superfluous as "play" is also an essential feature of our consciousness. If you ask children why they like to play, they will say, "Because it's fun." But that invites the next question: What is fun? Actually, when children play, they are often trying to reenact complex human interactions in simplified form. Human society is extremely sophisticated, much too involved for the developing brains of young children, so children run simplified simulations of adult society, playing games such as doctor, cops and robber, and school. Each game is a model that allows children to experiment with a small segment of adult behavior and then run simulations into the future. (Similarly, when adults engage in play, such as a game of poker, the brain constantly creates a model of what cards the various players possess, and then projects that model into the future, using previous data about people's personality, ability to bluff, etc. The key to games like chess, cards, and gambling is the ability to simulate the future. Animals, which live largely in the present, are not as good at games as humans are, especially if they involve planning. Infant mammals do engage in a form of play, but this is more for exercise, testing one another, practicing future battles, and establishing the coming social pecking order rather than simulating the future.) #Quote by Michio Kaku
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Jennifer Silverwood
#33. Drawing her closer he tucked his chin and lifted hers to meet his abysmal onyx eyes. #Quote by Jennifer Silverwood
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Andrew Solomon
#34. You cannot understand the otherness of places you have not encountered. If all young adults were required to spend two weeks in a foreign country, two-thirds of the world's diplomatic problems could be solved. It wouldn't matter what country they visited or what they did during their stays. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Kristen Ashley
#35. They're kids Apollo. Young kids. And they don't need to know their father has a bed partner."
"I won't exactly be sharing our play second for second at the breakfast table, Madeleine," he stated, his voice turning cold . "But to share your bed with a woman you care about is not something to be ashamed of."
"No, of course not, but - "
"And I'll not communicate that by hiding who you are to me."
That was nice, so nice.
But that didn't mean he wasn't moving too fast.
"That's sweet, honey, but - "
"And I'll not have it communicated to my children ... in any way ... that the act of love between two agreeable adults is something to hide because it's shameful. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Alephonsion Deng
#36. From what I could see, men or women, children or adults, young or aged, rich or poor, war was making everyone equal. #Quote by Alephonsion Deng
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Lynn Schusterman
#37. In my work with young Jewish adults in the gay community, I hear their stories of discrimination, of struggling for acceptance, of feeling invisible not for what they have done but simply for who they are. #Quote by Lynn Schusterman
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Strong, Lynn Steger
#38. I thought what I had then was something people got no matter what.

I got it wrong, maybe, Laura says. #Quote by Strong, Lynn Steger
Young Adults Fantasy quotes by Celia Green
#39. Young people wonder how the adult world can be so boring. The secret is that it is not boring to adults because they have learnt to enjoy simple things like covert malice at one another's expense. #Quote by Celia Green
