"Ever had a flying burrito hit you?

Well, it's a deadly projectile, right up there with cannonballs and grenades." Rick Riordan (The Titan's Curse) "Deadlines just aren't real to me until I'm staring one in the face." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "What if it lines up like it did in the Trojan War ... Athena versus Poseidon?" "I don't know. But I just know that I'll be fighting next to you." "Why?" "Because you're my friend, Seaweed Brain. Any more stupid questions?" Rick Riordan "Love conquers all," Aphrodite promised. "Look at Helen and Paris. Did they let anything come between them?" "Didn't they start the Trojan War and get thousands of people killed?" "Pfft. That's not the point. Follow your heart." Rick Riordan "Dreams like a podcast, Downloading truth in my ears. They tell me cool stuff." "Apollo?" I guess, because I figured nobody else could make a haiku that bad. He put his finger to his lips. "I'm incognito. Call me Fred." "A god named Fred?" Rick Riordan "The real story of the Fleece: there were these two children of Zeus, Cadmus and Europa, okay? They were about to get offered up as human sacrifices, when they prayed to Zeus to save them. So Zeus sent this magical flying ram with golden wool, which picked them up in Greece and carried them all the way to Colchis in Asia Minor. Well, actually it carried Cadmus. Europa fell off and died along the way, but that's not important."

"It was probably important to her." Rick Riordan "The cafe windows wrapped all the way around the observation floor, which gave us a beautiful panoramic view of the skeleton army that had come to kill us." Rick Riordan (The Titan's Curse) "So, you wrecked Alcatraz Island, made Mount St. Helens explode, and displaced half a million people, but at least you're safe." "Yep, that pretty much covers it." Rick Riordan "Something was wrong with Luke," Annabeth muttered, poking at the fire with her knife. "Did you notice the way he was acting?" "He looked pretty pleased to me," I said. "Like he'd spent a nice day torturing heroes." "That's not true! There was something wrong with him. He looked...nervous. He told his monsters to spare me. He wanted to tell me something." "Probably, 'Hi, Annabeth! Sit here with me and watch while I tear your friends apart. It'll be fun!" Rick Riordan "Hermes gazed up at the stars. 'My dear young cousin, if there's one thing I've learned over the eons, it's that you can't give up on your family, no matter how tempting they make it. It doesn't matter if they hate you, or embarrass you, or simply don't appreciate your genius for inventing the Internet--" Rick Riordan (The Sea of Monsters) "New lesson, class. Most monsters will vaporize when sliced with a celestial bronze sword. This change is perfectly normal, and will happen to you right now if you don't BACK OFF!" Percy" Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "Getting something and having the wits to use it...those are two different things." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth)

"Don't feel bad, I'm usually about to die." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "I said hello to the poodle." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "You drool when you sleep." Rick Riordan "She glanced at the minotaur horn in my hands, then back at me. I imagined she was going to say, You killed a minotaur! or Wow, you're so awesome! or something like that. Instead she said, "You drool when you sleep." Rick Riordan "How did you die?" "We er....drowned in a bathtub." "All three of you?" "It was a big bathtub." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "All I could think of was that the teachers must've found the illegal stash of candy I'd been selling out of my dorms room. Or maybe they'd realized I got my Essay on Tom Sawyer from the Internet without ever reading the book and now they were going to take away my grade. Or worse, they were going to make me read the book. " Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "Remake the world, a little at a time, each in your own corner of the world." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "There were a lot of answers I might've given, from "I knew that" to "LIAR!" to "Yeah right, and I'm Zeus." - Percy, after Quintus says that he is Daedalus" Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "Even strengh must bow to wisdom sometimes." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief)

"Thalia's shoulders relaxed. "I owe you one." "Two." "One and a half," Thalia said. She smiled, and for a second, I remembered that I actually liked her when she wasn't yelling at me." Rick Riordan (The Titan's Curse) "Do you always try to kill people when they blow their nose?" Rick Riordan (The Titan's Curse) "Remind me again-why do you hate me so much?" I don't hate you." Could've fooled me." She folded her cap of invisibility. "Look...we're just not supposed to get along, okay? Our parents are rivals." Why?" She sighed. "How many reasons do you want? One time my mom caught Poseidon with his girlfriend in Athena's temple, which is hugely disrespectful. Another time, Athena and Poseidon competed to be the patron god for the city of Athens. Your dad created some stupid saltwater spring for his gift. My mom created the olive tree. The people saw that her gift was better, so they named the city after her." They must really like olives." Oh, forget it." Now, if she'd invented pizza-that I could understand." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "You weren't able to talk sense into him?" Well, we kind of tried to kill each other in a duel to the death." I see. You tried the diplomatic approach." Rick Riordan (The Sea of Monsters)

"Are you guys busy?" Juniper asked. "Well," I said, "we're in the middle of this game against a bunch of monsters and we're trying not to die." "We're not busy," Annabeth said." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "What I did next was so impulsive and dangerous I should've been named ADHD poster child of the year." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "You're pretty smug, Lord Ares, for a guy who runs from Cupid statues." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "We'd spent maybe ten minutes together, during which time I'd accidentally swung a sword at her, she'd saved my life, and I'd run away chased by a band of supernatural killing machines. You know, your typical chance meeting." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "Chiron insisted that we talk about the Labyrinth in the morning which is like 'Hey, your life's in mortal danger. Sleep tight!" Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "Great, I thought. We just blowtorched a national monument." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "There is always a way out for those clever enough to find it." Rick Riordan (The Titan's Curse) "I've been waiting a long time for a quest, Seaweed Brain," she said. "Athena is no fan of Poseidon, but if you're going to save the world, I'm the best person to keep you from messing up." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief)

"The most dangerous flaws are those which are good in moderation," she said. "Evil is easy to fight. Lack of wisdom that is very hard indeed." Rick Riordan (The Titan's Curse) "Thalia had been turned into a pine tree when she was 12. Me... well, i was doing my best not to follow her example. I had nightmares about what Poseidon might turn me into if i were ever in the verge of death. Plankton, maybe. Or a floating patch of kelp." Rick Riordan (The Sea of Monsters) "THAT Perseus always won. That's why my mom had named me after him, even if he was son of Zeus and I was son of Poseidon. The original Perseus was one of the only heroes in the Greek myths who got a happy ending. The others died-betrayed, mauled, mutilated, poisoned, or cursed by the gods. My mom hoped I would inherit Perseus's luck. Judging by how my life was going so far, I wasn't too optimistic." Rick Riordan (The Sea of Monsters) "Look, I didnt want to be a half-blood. If you're reading this because you think you might be one, my advice is: close this book right now. Believe whatever lie your mom and dad told you about your birth, and try to lead a normal life. Being a half-blood is dangerous. It's scary. Most of the time, it gets you killed in painful nasty ways. If you're a normal kid, reading this because you think it's fiction, great. Read on. I envy you for being able to believe none of this ever happened. But if you recognize yourself in these pages-if you feel something stirring inside- stop reading immediately. You might be one of us. And once you know that, it's only a matter of time before THEY sense it too, and they'll come for you. Don't say I didn't warn you. -Percy Jackson" Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief)

"Monkey bars, Annabeth said. Im great at these. She leaped onto the first rung and started swinging her way across. She was scared of tiny spiders, but not of plummeting to her death from a set of monkey bars. Go figure." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth)

"You deal with mythological stuff for a few years, you learn that paradises are usually places where you get killed." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth)

"She'd also called me brave... unless she was talking to the catfish." Rick Riordan

"[My mom's] funny that way, celebrating special occasions with blue food. I think it's her way of saying anything is possible. Percy can pass seventh grade. Waffles can be blue. Little miracles like that." Rick Riordan (The Sea of Monsters) "Annabeth: Hey, Seaweed Brain. Percy: Will you stop calling me that? Annabeth: You know you love it." Rick Riordan "But remember, boy, that a kind act can sometimes be as powerful as a sword." Rick Riordan (The Battle of the Labyrinth) "What horrible things would you have to do in your life to get woven into Hades' underwear?" Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief)

"Isn't your mom the goddess of inventors?" I asked. Annabeth glared at me. "Yes, but this is different. I'm good with ideas. Not Mechanics." If I was going to pick one person in the world to reattach my head," I said "I'd pick you." I just blurted it out-to give her confidence, I guess-but immediately I realized it sounded pretty stupid. Awww..." Silena sniffled and wiped her eyes. "Percy that is so sweet!" Rick Riordan (The Demigod Files) "With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later." Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian) "It seemed weird calling a teenager 'sir' but I'd learned to be careful with immortals. They tended to get offended easily. Then, they blew stuff up." Rick Riordan "I love New York. You can pop out of the Underworld in Central Park, hail a taxi, head down Fifth Avenue with a giant hellhound loping behind you, and nobody even looks at you funny." Rick Riordan "The main courtyard was filled with warriors - mermen with fish tails from the waist down and human bodies from the waist up, except their skin was blue, which I'd never known before. Some were tending the wounded. Some were sharpening spears and swords. One passed us, swimming in a hurry. His eyes were bright green, like that stuff they put in glo-sticks, and his teeth were shark teeth. They don't show you stuff like that in "The Little Mermaid." ~Percy" Rick Riordan "Race you to the road?" I said. "You are so going to lose." She took off down Half-Blood Hill and I sprinted after her.

For once, I didn't look back." Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian) "My name is Percy Jackson. I'm twelve years old. Until a few months ago, I was a boarding student at Yancy Academy, a private school for troubled kids in upstate New York. Am I a troubled kid? Yeah. You could say that. " Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "The last time I'd seen the Minotaur, he'd been wearing nothing but his tighty whities. I don't know why. Maybe he'd been shaken out of bed to chase me." Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian) "I don't recommend shadow travel if you're scared of: a) The dark b) Cold shivers up your spine c) Strange noises d) Going so fast you feel like your face is peeling off In other words, I thought it was awesome." Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian) "Seriously, who has monogrammed pajamas?" Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian) "Well . . . sure good to be together again. Arguing. Almost dying. Abject terror. Oh, look. It's our floor." Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian) "Why do you need to gallop while you fly?" "Why do humans have to sway their arms while they walk? I dunno boss, but it just feels right." Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian)

"Hope survives best at the hearth." Rick Riordan

"You're the last Olympian,' I said. 'And the most important.' And why is that, Percy Jackson?' Because Hope survives best at the hearth,' I said." Rick Riordan

"I wasn't aiming at the school bus, but of course I got expelled anyway." Rick Riordan (The Lightning Thief) "It was one of those and so they died/the end stories, that made us demigods feels all warm and fuzzy inside.-Percy" Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian) "Not all powers are spectacular." Hestia looked at me. "Sometimes the hardest power to master is the power of yielding." Rick Riordan (The Last Olympian)
