“Quote it Saturday” was a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, but it’s currently inactive. It’s a weekly meme where you can add as many quotes as you wish, from whomever you wish.
Caraval is another fast-paced fantasy that left me with lots of mixed thoughts. I was waiting to finish the series before I posted these quotes, but I don’t think I’ll be able to do that this month, so here they are. There are some lengthy quotes that I don’t usually post here, but they capture the essence of the book, so I didn’t want to skip them.
If the person wants something more than anything, and they can find a bit of magic to help them along.
Look with all of your senses.
Welcome, welcome to Caraval! The grandest show on land or by sea. Inside you’ll experience more wonders than most people see in a lifetime. You can sip magic from a cup and buy dreams in a bottle. But before you fully enter into our world, you must remember it’s all a game. What happens beyond this gate may frighten or excite you, but don’t let any of it trick you.
Hope is a powerful thing. Some say it’s a different breed of magic altogether. Elusive, difficult to hold on to. But not much is needed.
Stars winked above like evil eyes, while hosts of lanterns set the streets ablaze with lustrous candlelight.
A world built of make-believe.
She remembered thinking falling for him would be like falling in love with darkness, but now she imagined he was more like a starry night: the constellations were always there, constant, magnificent guides against the ever-present black.
Think of the instructions as a map. There’s more than one way to get to almost every destination. Clues are hidden everywhere. The guidelines you received just make it easier to spot them. But keep in mind, clues are not the only thing you need to win. This game is like a person. If you truly want to play it right, you need to learn its history.
Every person gets one impossible wish, if the person wants something more than anything, and they can find a bit of magic to help them along.
