The Lost Sisters Favourite Quotes

“Fairy tales are full of girls who wait, who endure, who suffer. Good girls. Obedient girls. Girls who crush nettles until their hands bleed. Girls who haul water for witches. Girls who wander through deserts or sleep in ashes or make homes for transformed brothers in the woods. Girls without hands, without eyes, without the power of speech, without any power at all. But then a prince rides up and sees the girl and finds her beautiful. Beautiful, not despite her suffering, but because of it.”

Share your food but don’t trust people who want to share their good with you; don’t eat their shiny red apples, not their candy houses, nor any of it. Be nice, always nice, and polite to everyone: kings and beggars, witches and wounded bears. Don’t break a promise.”

“Faeries despise humans as liars, but there are different kinds of lying.”

“I suppose that’s the good thing about being obedient and faithful and good. People think you will never surprise them.”

“As Edir’s song drifted through the air, I realised that Locke might teach me lessons, but he wasn’t going to like what I did once I learned them.”
