A bad hand can be your greatest weapon. Sometimes, when there is no hope, it can allow you to bluff magnificently.
Your choice in women is almost as bad as your choice in bears.[Lord Asriel: Do you know who your mother is?]
Doubt comes when you care. It’s not bear or human. It’s the worst people that don’t doubt. The people like my mother and my father. The ones like Will and like you, the good people, they doubt because they don’t know which is the right path.
When we do find each other again, no one will be able to tear us apart. We’ll be joined so tightly. Every atom of me, and every atom of you. When they use our atoms to make new lives, they’ll have to take two. One for you, and one for me. We’ll be in the flowers and in the sunbeams. We’ll be joined so tight.[to Will]
Sometimes you’ve got to have dreams.[Roger Parslow: You are aware that I work here, right? And you’re pretty much stuck here because we’re orphans and both of us have no money.]
It’s like an iron hand is gripped round my heart and is yanking it out between my ribs.[Will Parry: What does it feel like being this far away from him? From Pan?]
