Favorite Quotes *2*

So I decided to feature my favorite quotes of Matched on my blog. As I read more books, I will also be adding any other favorite quotes I have with other books that I read. I just love the feeling of having certain quotes transporting me to a part in the Book!
Since I just finished Matched by Ally Condie, early this morning I will be putting some quotes up today before I forget! Here's my review of Matched!
  • "Every minute you spend with someone gives them a part of your life and takes part of theirs." 
  • "We could have been happy. I know that, and it is perhaps the hardest thing to know." 
  • "Ky can play this game. He can play all of their games, including the one in front of him that he just lost. He knows exactly how to play, and that's why he loses every time." 
  • "It is strange how we hold on to the pieces of the past while we wait for our futures."
  • "I came up on the screen, too, Cassia. But he was the one you chose to see." 
  • "But if you were Matched," I say softly, "What do you think she'd be like?"
    "You," he says, almost before I've finished. "You." 
  • "They are giving us pieces of a real life instead of the whole thing. They have perfected the art of giving us just enought freedom; just enough that when we are ready to snap, a little bone is offered and we roll over, belly up, comfortable and placated like a dog... - Cassia" 
  • "If I couldn’t name it, would I even know what it is? Would I even feel it at all?" 
  • "This is the difference between us. I live to sort, he knows how to create." 
  • "Once you want something, everything changes. Now I want everything. More and more and more." 


  1. "I came up on the screen, too, Cassia. But he was the one you chose to see."

    ^That may very well be the saddest line/ most heartbreaking line of the entire book...

    I love all of the quotes that you picked!

  2. There are some of my favorites quotes there !!
    Thank you ;)

  3. I love the last quote.
    Once you want something, everything changes. Now you want everything..
    That one really made me stop reading for a while. And just sit and think. Because it`s just so true :)
