Quote it Sunday | Jade Legacy by Fonda Lee

“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 any source you want.

Today is the last quotes post on The Green Bone Saga. Going through Jade Legacy‘s notes took some effort. Being the lengthiest and the most emotionally moving book in the trilogy, Jade Legacy had tied up the series well. I might post the reviews by the last week of Jan.

I’m dedicating this post to the Kauls who put me through enough in the short period of time I came to know them.

Here are 10 quotes from Jade Legacy by Fonda Lee.

The clan is my blood, and the Pillar is its master.

Sometimes the most obvious solution required only the willingness to take the most unreasonable of actions.

The gods have always had a sick sense of humor.

Jade had meaning because of the type of person one had to become to wear it.

Good luck and bad luck were two sides of the same betting chip, thrown carelessly onto a cosmic games table to prolong the inscrutable amusement of the gods.

Every drop of blood spilled , every sacrifice made, every child ever trained to wear jade as a Green Bone warrior of Kekon over centuries of history . . .That’s what the Pillar carries. That’s our power, and ours alone.

We don’t handle this world. We make it handle us.

Even when we win, we suffer.

Don’t show off how much you hate a man until you’re ready to be his enemy

Trust that had been so dramatically spilled could only be refilled one drop at a time.
