“Love is pretty important. It’s like wearing a suit of armor. It makes you strong.”
― K.A. Applegate,  The Visitor

 “People who argue about how smart whales are, or whether they are as smart as humans, kind of miss the point. Whales will never read books or build rockets or do algebra. In all those areas, humans are smarter. Humans are the great brains of planet Earth. But it isn’t necessary to believe whales are as smart as humans to believe that they are great. They don’t have to know words to sing songs. They don’t have to be anything but what they are to be magnificent. And even though I don’t really know what a soul is, I know this—if humans have them, then so do whales.”
― K.A. Applegate, The Message

“I wanted so much to live. I wanted so much to stay and not to leave. In a moment no answer would matter to me, but just the same, I wanted to know what I guess any dying person wants to know.
“Answer this, Ellimist: Did I . . . did I make a difference? My life, and my . . . my death . . . was I worth it? Did my life really matter?”
“Yes,” he said. “You were brave. You were strong. You were good. You mattered.”
“Yeah. Okay, then. Okay, then.”
― K. A. Applegate

 “Elfangor laughed in my mind. “Victory without sacrifice? You know better than that.”
“You don’t have to give up your principles to win. Isn’t there always an alternative to sacrifice if you just keep your mind clear, and step back, and see it, and…”
“You know better than that.”
― K. A. Applegate

 “It was a symbiotic relationship. Or codependent, whatever.
They needed me to be the bad guy.
And I needed them to be the good guys.
See, if they were the good guys, and I was on their team, then that automatically made me a good guy, too. Even if I was different.”
― K. A. Applegate

 “I felt my throat tighten and constrict. My hearts ached with a pain I could not describe. I wondered if I were dying. I felt not sadness. I felt pity. For myself. For us all. We were children no longer. And we never would be again.”
― K. A. Applegate

“Humans are always lost in time. They are constantly certain that “X” is later or earlier than they thought. I have never known a human to say, “Oh, look, it’s exactly what time I thought it was.”
― K.A. Applegate

One Final Bonus – K. A. Applegate Quote 

“I wanted to throw up. But I would have had to get out of bed to run to the bathroom. And I felt like I never wanted to leave that bed again. I love animals. I’ve been raised all my life around them. I love nature. But what did I really know about it? I have been more animals than many people ever see in a lifetime. I have flown with the wings of an osprey. I’ve raced through the ocean in the body of a dolphin. I’ve seen the world through the eyes of an owl at night, and smelled the wind with all the keen senses of a wolf. I’ve flown upside down and backward in the body of a fly. Sometimes I go out into the far fields at night and become a horse and run through the grass. And everything I’ve been, every animal, is either killer or killed. In a million, million battles all around the world, on every continent, in every square inch of space, there was killing. From the great cats in Africa that cold-bloodedly search out the young and weak gazelles, to the terrible wars that are fought out in anthills and termite colonies. All of nature was at war. And, at the top of all that destruction, humans killed each other as well as other species, and now those same people have been enslaved and destroyed by the Yeerks. Nature at its finest. Cute, cuddly animals who slaughtered to live. The color of nature wasn’t green. It was red. Blood-red.”
