My Favourite Quotes from The Damned by Renee Ahdieh

To say I adore this book is an understatement. I love everything that Renee writes, and The Damned was so good and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I read it.

You can also read my post where I shared my favourite quotes from The Beautiful.

So here are some of my favourite quotes from The Damned and I hope they entice you all to go read this wonderful series!

People tended to recall things not as they were but as they wished them to be.

But the best heroes possessed flaws. And the best mortals never forgot that fact.

Men were the worst kind of heroes. Riddled with flaws they refused to see.

Feel your anger, but do not succumb to it.

If a mediocre young man could crow to the world about his mediocrity, then why should a superior young woman not do the same?

I don’t want someone who understands and accepts the world she is given. I want someone who expects more. Who fights for it and isn’t afraid to dirty her sleeves in the process.

Food is life, after all.

Life is not a given to any of us. Neither is love. A hundred thousand years will not teach you that truth. You must accept it for yourself.

This is what it means to live. To choose a path and face the consequences.

I am tired of allowing society to dictate my behaviour.

When had justice ever prevailed when it came to a richly entitled young man and a young woman of modest means?

It was easy for a man to be kind and generosity in times of plenty. The real measure of a man was what he did and said in times of difficulty.

She was not a damsel in distress, waiting to be rescued by a knight on a shining horse.

This is the life I chose. It is mine and no one else’s.

So these are just some of the many quotes I highlighted when I was reading The Damned and this is how you know Renee’s writing is incredible because I just want to highlight so many poignant moments in the book and omg I just love these books so much!

PS. Here is my review for The Beautiful and The Damned
