The Best Quotes from Sarah J Maas

Sarah J Maas is no new author when it comes to the world of literature. As my favorite author, through the countless books she’s written, I’ve been able to take away many lessons from her books. From the Throne of Glass series to her newest series that was just released, each story had something to take away from them.

I decided that I would try to recap these lessons by listing my favorite quotes from Sarah J Maas. As I have read every single one of her books, I will be separating these quotes into categories according to the book series.

Quotes from Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J Maas

Aelin smiled, and Goldryn burned brighter. ‘I am a god.”

“Remember that we have something to fight for, and it will always triumph.”

“Aelin looked at Chaol and Dorian and sobbed. Opened her arms to them, and wept as they held each other. “I love you both,” she whispered. “And no matter what may happen, no matter how far we may be, that will never change.”

“Passed over one of those mountains, where a winged male stood beside a heavily pregnant female, gazing at those very stars. Fae.”
