My Favorite Fantasy Quotes - Part 2

I previously posted part 1 of My Favorite Fantasy Quotes in which I shared some of my favorite lines from fantasy books I've read. Below I've listed more great lines I've read and saved over the years. Some of them are words of wisdom and some just give me chills every time I read them. As always, leave me some of your favorite quotes in the comments below!

    1. Oh that's a good one! I've read the first two First Law books and I really enjoyed them. Gotta get to that last one to see how it all comes together!
