So I’m rereading knife of dreams currently and Naeneve just visited her first merchant.

“The Golden Crane flies for Tarmon Gai’don”

That line gave me chills. My other favorite that I have on a shirt is “We come”

What are some of your favorite lines from the books?

When Mat is asked to deliver a letter from Verin to Egwene in The Gathering Storm :giggle :
"You didn't ask where I got this"

"You're Aes Sedai," Mat said, shrugging. "I figured you.. you know, saidared it."

"Saidared it?" she asked flatly.

Welcome to the community, btw :)

That one gives me chills as well! I just love everything about it, and the fact that if you hadn't read the books, it is pretty much meaningless.

I have to admit though, I also like the opening sentence, but mostly because of the nostalgia. "The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning."

"Cadsuane," he said softly, "do you believe that I could kill you? Right here, right now, without using a sword or the Power? Do you believe that if I simply willed it, the Pattern would bend around me and stop your heart? By . . . coincidence?"
Being ta'veren didn't work that way. Light! It didn't, did it? He couldn't bend the very Pattern to his will, could he?
And yet, meeting his eyes, she did believe. Against all logic, she looked in those eyes and knew that if she didn’t leave, she would die.


Always loved that scene.

That one is also great Silencia :D

I also like when Egwene sits and crack nuts for the White Sisters when she is captive in the Tower and just calmly answer their questions in exactly the right way to impress them. :) So many scenes from Egwene as captive in the Tower is great :)

“Almost dead yesterday, maybe dead tomorrow, but alive! Gloriously alive today!”

Honestly anything that comes out of mat’s mouth is going to be strangely insightful, highly relatable, or just downright hilarious.

“The Golden Crane flies for Tarmon Gai’don”
I think a huge portion of fandom would agree on this being an especially iconic quote. And yes, I usually tear up at that part :look:

And yes;
I will hate the man you choose because he is not me, and love him if he makes you smile. No woman deserves the sure knowledge of widow’s black as her brideprice, you least of all.:D

Also:
"And the Shadow fell upon the Land, and the World was riven stone from stone. The oceans fled, and the mountains were swallowed up, and the nations were scattered to the eight corners of the World. The moon was as blood, and the sun was as ashes. The seas boiled, and the living envied the dead. All was shattered, and all but memory lost, and one memory above all others, of him who brought the Shadow and the Breaking of the World. And him they named Dragon."
(from Aleth nin Taerin alta Camora,
The Breaking of the World.

"I have never thanked you," she said, though she had to grit her teeth to get the words out. "I do so now. He lives because of you. I realize that. However, Myrelle, this is not a time to push me. Today, I have seen people I love slaughtered, I have been forced to consign children to living torment. I have been burned, scourged, and harrowed. I swear to you, woman, if you do not pass me Lan's bond this very moment, I will step into that tent and teach you the meaning of obedience. Do not press me. In the morning, I swear the Three Oaths. I'm free of them for one more night."

Now THAT is how you end a chapter, kids!

One of my favorite parts of the series is when Moiraine tells the story of Manetheren to the people of The Two Rivers.
"The men of Manetheren were a thorn to the dark one's foot and a bramble to his hand. Sing of Manetheren, that would never bend the knee to the shadow. Sing of Manetheren, the sword that could not be broken."
It was an awe-inspiring story!

Yes..I will say, and I know this isnt the right thread for this, but the animated short on Manetheren that came out with the show is amazing
