Here are the quotes I like from the first book of the Matched Trilogy.

“The two desires struggle within me: the desire to be safe, and the desire to know. I cannot tell which one will win.”

“I didn’t see him differently because I saw his face on the portscreen the morning after my Match; I saw him differently because I saw him outside, unguarded for a moment, with eyes the color of the sky in the evening before it goes down into dark. I saw him seeing me.”

“My birthday began with the water-
Birds and the birds of the winged trees flying my name
Above the farms and the white horses
And I rose
In rainy autumn
And walked abroad in a shower of all my days.”

“This is a difficult balance, telling the truth: how much to share, how much to keep, which truths will wound but not ruin, which will cut too deep to heal.”

“Ky did not give me any more of his history and I did not ask. Perhaps it is because now I live in his story. Now I am a part of his, and he of mine, and the part we write together sometimes feels like the only part that matters.”

“If she had a way to track all my memories, she would see they are pure.”

“Our time together feels like a storm, like wild wind and rain, like something too big to handle but too powerful escape.”

Favorite Lines from Cress by Marissa Meyer

Why L. A. Pourquoi Paris Favorite Lines

“That word, calm, sounds impossibly beautiful, gloriously uncomplicated. A water-smooth word, a word that can take the edge away from fear, gloss it over, make it shiny. Calm. Gentle.”

“Even now, when he smiles more often, I am still greedy for it.”

“They showed me a picture. The girl who would have been my Match if I weren’t what I am.”
“Who was she?”

“Of all the words I have hidden and saved and treasured, these are the ones I will never forget, the most important ones of all.”

“Cassia, he wrote at the top of the page, in letters that were tall and clear and unafraid, that curled and moved and turned my name into something beautiful, something more than a word. A declaration, a piece of song, a bit of art, framed by his hands.”

“I want to tell her everything but I can’t. Not now. I am too fragile. I am trapped in glass and I want to break out and breathe deep but I am too afraid that it will hurt.”

“I don’t trust myself to speak, so I shake my head.”

“My face fits perfectly into the spot against his shoulder, near his neck, where I can both hear his heart and smell his skin.”

“When I am with him, I feel. But he is gone. I saw it happen. I made it happen.”
