Claire Outlander Quotes

  • "Strange, the things you remember. Single images and feelings that stay with you down through the years. Like the moment I'd realized I'd never owned a vase. That I'd never lived in any place long enough to justify having such a simple thing. And how at that moment, I wanted nothing so much in all the world as to have a vase of my very own."

  • "That amount of time doesn't exist."

  • "Listen to me. If you ever raise a hand to me again, James Fraser, I will cut out your heart and eat it for breakfast, do you understand me?"

  • "Luceo non uro.' I shine, not burn."

  • "People disappear all the time. Young girls run away from home. Children stray from their parents and are never seen again. Housewives take the grocery money and a taxi to the train station. Most are found, eventually. Disappearances, after all, have explanations... Usually."

  • "Doesn't this distress any of you? How this city treats its poor and underprivileged? Surely you must see the staggering numbers of them as you travel along the city? Just yesterday I saw a woman and her child dead, in the middle of the road. It was absolutely horrible. Surely we must do something to change the situation?."

Claire Fraser Outlander Quotes

  • "A small circle, standing stones on the crest of a steep green hill. The name of the hill is Craigh na Dun; the fairies' hill. Some say the hill is enchanted, others say it is cursed. Both are right. But no one knows the function or the purpose of the stones. Except me."

  • "We were still for a long time, aware of each other's breathing, sensitive to each small twitch and shifting of position. We fitted well together, my head curled into the hollow of his shoulder, the territory of his body warm under my hand, both strange and familiar, awaiting rediscovery."

  • "He had been looking for me; his eyes darted around the room before they lighted on me, and a heart-stopping smile lit his face. Thank God, his dark-blue eyes said, and Thank God, my own echoed back."

  • "We stood quite still, looking at each other, oblivious of the deck traffic passing by. He knew better than any man how to hide his thoughts, but he wasn't hiding them from me. The hunger in him went bone-deep, and my own bones seemed to dissolve in recognition of it."

  • "He had called me that from the first; the Gaelic word for outlander, a stranger. An Englishman. First in jest, then in affection."

  • "We'd lived long enough to know how chancy life could be and how swiftly people could be parted forever."

  • "You're beautiful to me, Jamie. So beautiful, you break my heart."

Claire Fraser Quotes

  • "Jamie--I won't ... I can't ... I bloody won't live without you, and that's all!"

  • "I longed for Jamie, in a visceral way that had nothing to do with thought or reason.

  • "To be with Jamie was bliss, adventure, and absorption."

  • "He held me hard against him then, without speaking, and I could feel the pulsebeat in his throat, hammering like my own. His hands went to my bare shoulders, and he held me slightly away, so that I was looking upward into his face. His hands were large and very warm, and I felt slightly dizzy."

  • "As yet too hungry and too clumsy for tenderness, still he made love with a sort of unflagging joy that made me think that male virginity might be a highly underrated commodity."

  • "The truth, then, all of it. I couldn't bear to leave him."
