    1. YES! Thank you Mel ♥ Dumbledore's wisdom never ceases to amaze me. Celaena IS the BEST, I freaking love her to pieces. That Tolkien quote seriously gives me chills every time I think about it! And that Karou quote has always been one of my favorites but then again, the entire trilogy is incredibly quotable ♥
