Moderator Note: We genuinely appreciate your enthusiasm, but threads like this really ask that you be selective: we all love lots of the dialogue in the books: the point here is to choose what you see as the absolute best, the one you would take with you to a desert island, or show to someone as the best of the best, not to flood the thread with lots and lots of examples.
