“‘I love you,’ he whispered, and kissed my brow. ‘Thorns and all.'” – page 248 by Tamlin

“There are those who seek me a lifetime but never we meet,
And those I kiss but who trample me beneath ungrateful feet.

At times I seem to favor the clever and the fair,
But I bless all those who are brave enough to dare.

By large, my ministrations are soft-handed and sweet,
But scorned, I become a difficult beast to defeat.

For though each of my strikes lands a powerful blow,
When I kill, I do it slow…” – page 313 by Amarantha

“I came to claim the one I love.” – page 297 by Feyre

“‘I love you,’ I said, and stabbed him.” – page 397 by Feyre

“I threw myself into that fire, threw myself into it, into him, and let myself burn.” – page 412 by Feyre
