Thing are going round and round my head, of maybe my head is going round and round in things. -(Diana Wynne Jones)Howl's Moving Castle

Sophie, I'm dying of boredom in here, of maybe just dying. -(Diana Wynne Jones)Howl's Moving Castle

"You must admit I have a right to live in a pigsty if I want." — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"’I think we ought to live happily ever after,’ and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal meer hair-raising than any storybook made it sound, though she was determined to try.

‘It should be hair-raising,’ added Howl.

‘And you'll exploit me,’ Sophie said.

‘And then you'll cut up all my suits to teach me.’”— Diana Wynne Jones

"’Go to bed, u fool,’ Calcifer zei sleepily. ‘You're drunk.’

‘Who, me?’ zei Howl. ‘I assure you, my friends, I am cone sold sober.’ He got up and stalked upstairs, feeling for the uithangbord as if he thought it might escape him unless he kept in touch with it. His bedroom door did escape him." — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"I am a believer in free will. If my dog chooses to hate the whole human race except myself, it must be free to do so." — Diana Wynne Jones (Castle in the Air)

"Typical! I break my neck trying to get here, and I find u peacefully tidying up!" — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"If I give u a hint and tell u it's a hint, it will be information and I’m not allowed to do that." — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"Yes, u are nosy. You're a dreadfully nosy, horribly bossy, appallingly clean old woman. Control yourself. You're victimizing us all." — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"I hope your spek burns." — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"In the land of Ingary where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of the three. Everyone knows u are the one who will fail first, and worst, if the three of u set out to seek your fortunes." — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"Take it from me, Fate doesn't care most of the time." — Diana Wynne Jones (Castle in the Air)

"Bloody hell! I've got a hangover!"

‘No, u hit u head on the floor’

‘I can't stay. I've got to rescue that fool Sophie.’

‘I’m right here.’— Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"You've no right to walk into people's castles and take their guitars." — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"'She zei 'Over my dead body!' so I took her at her word.' -the Witch of the Waste" — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"Meanwhile a certain amount of moaning and groaning was coming from upstairs. Sophie kept muttering to the dog and ignored it. A loud, hollow coughing followed, dying away into meer moaning. Crashing sneezes followed the coughing, each one rattling the window and all the doors. Sophie found those harder to ignore, but she managed. Poot-pooooot! went a blown nose, a fagot in a tunnel. The coughing started again, mingled with moans. Sneezes mixed with the moans and the coughs, and the sounds rose to a crescendo in which Howl seemed to be managing to cough, groan, blow his nose, sneeze, and wail gently all at the same time. The doors rattled, the beams in the ceiling shook, and one of Calcifer’s logs rolled off onto the hearth.

‘All right, all right, I get the message!’ Sophie said, dumping the log back into the grate. ‘It’ll be green slime next.’" — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"All she heard volgende of the strange conversation behind the sofa was Mrs. Pendragon saying something about sending Twinkle (or was his name Howl?) to bed without avondmaal and Twinkle daring her to 'jutht TRY it." — Diana Wynne Jones (House of Many Ways)

"Christopher discovered that u dealt with obnoxious masters and most older boys the way u dealt with governesses: u quite politely told them the truth in the way they wanted to hear it, so that they thought they had won and left u in peace." — Diana Wynne Jones (The Lives of Christopher Chant)

"By now it was clear that Howl was in a mood to produce green slime any second. Sophie hurriedly put her sewing away.

‘I'll make some hot buttered toast,’ she said.

‘Is that all u can do in the face of tragedy??’ Howl asked. ‘Make toast!’" — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"’I feel ill,’ Howl announced. ‘I'm going to bed, where I may die.’" — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"’Wizard Howl,’ zei Wizard Suliman. ‘I must apologize for trying to bite u so often. In the normal way, I wouldn't dream of setting teeth in a fellow countryman.’" — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)

"Pray use both cats as sponges if it pleases you, infatuated infantryman." — Diana Wynne Jones (Castle in the Air)

"Sophie zei a bad word. In the dim light she had stubbed her toe on one of the many dusty bricks piled around the place.

‘Naughty-naughty’ Twinkle said.

'Oh shut up!’ Sophie said, standing on one leg to hold her toe. 'Why don't u grow up?'" — Diana Wynne Jones (House of Many Ways)

“’Tell me of this wizard Howl of yours.’

Sophie’s teeth chattered, but she zei proudly, ‘He’s the best wizard in Ingary of anywhere else. If he’d only had time, he would have defeated that djinn. And he’s sly and selfish and vain as a peacock, and u can’t pin him down to anything.’

‘Indeed?’ asked Abdullah. ‘Strange that u should speak so proudly of such a lijst of vices, most loving of ladies.’

‘What do u mean, vices?’ Sophie asked angrily. ‘I was just describing Howl.’” — Diana Wynne Jones (Castle in the Air)

“’You can clean the webs out if u want to, but don’t kill the spiders’ zei Howl.

‘But they’ll just make meer webs!’ Sophie exclaimed.

‘Exactly.’ Howl grinned.” — Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle)
