Since I'm a day late, I'll give you two:
"There was a short silence during which time Mr Norrell found it impossible to meet Strange's eye. "What do you want from me?" he asked in a low voice.
"Only what I have always wanted — your help."
–Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.
This is a long book. And I know there are some that didn't get into it. I almost put it away after starting and I'm glad I didn't. This sentence is near the end and is a great distillation of the story.
He sat down on a grassy bank and looked at the city that surrounded him, and thought, one day he would have to go home. And one day he would have to make a home to go back to. He wondered whether home was a thing that happened to a place after a while, or if it was something that you found in the end, if you simply walked and waited and willed it long enough. – Neil Gaiman, American Gods
I read this book at a time of great flux in my life — a time when I wasn't really sure where I was going and this passage really resonated with me.
