„into loving me. I've“ The Rustlers of Pecos County

„I maggiori e migliori uomini sono quelli che, dopo essere caduti più profondamente degli altri nel fango, dopo avere peccato e sofferto più di tutti, hanno combattuto contro se stessi e hanno vinto.“ p. 119


„I need this wild life, this freedom.“

„At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. Its like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And its not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away.“

„Recipe For Greatness - To bear up under loss; To fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief; To be victor over anger; To smile when tears are close; To resist disease and evil men and base instincts; To hate hate and to love love; To go on when it would seen good to die; To look up with unquenchable faith in something ever more about to be. That is what any man can do, and be great.“

„Where I was raised a woman's word was law. I ain't quite outgrowed that yet.“ Riders of the Purple Sage

„Jealousy is an unjust and stifling thing.“ The Call of the Canyon

„So that's troublin' you? I reckon it needn't. You see it was this way. I come round the house an' seen that fat party an' heard him talkin' loud. Then he seen me, an' very impolite goes straight for his gun. He oughtn't have tried to throw a gun on me - whatever his reason was. For that's meetin' me on my own grounds. I've seen runnin' molasses that was quicker'n him. Now I didn't know who he was, visitor or friend or relation of yours, though I seen he was a Mormon all over, an' I couldn't get serious about shootin'. So I winged him - put a bullet through his arm as he was pullin' at his gun. An' he droppped the gun there, an' a little blood. I told him he'd introduced himself sufficient, an' to please move out of my vicinity. An' went" - Lassiter“ Riders of the Purple Sage


„You and I will never live to see the day that women recover their balance.“ The Call of the Canyon

„But what can women do in times of war? They help, they cheer, they inspire, and if their cause is lost they must accept death or worse. Few women have the courage for self-destruction. "To the victor belong the spoils," and women have ever been the spoils of war.“ Betty Zane

„When I envied a man's spurs then they were indeed worth coveting.“

„I am waiting to plunge down, to shatter and crash, roar and boom, to bury your trail, and close forever the outlet to Deception Pass!“ Riders of the Purple Sage


„He saw his enemies stealthily darting from rock to tree, and tree to bush, creeping through the brush, and slipping closer and closer every moment. On three sides were his hated foes and on the remaining side—the abyss. Without a moment's hesitation the intrepid Major spurred his horse at the precipice. Never shall I forget that thrilling moment. The three hundred savages were silent as they realized the Major's intention. Those in the fort watched with staring eyes. A few bounds and the noble steed reared high on his hind legs. Outlined by the clear blue sky the magnificent animal stood for one brief instant, his black mane flying in the wind, his head thrown up and his front hoofs pawing the air like Marcus Curtius' mailed steed of old, and then down with a crash, a cloud of dust, and the crackling of pine limbs.“ Betty Zane

„Pride would never be her ally.“ The Call of the Canyon

„I knew you"d never be American enough to help me reconstruct my life.“ The Call of the Canyon

„The narrator finds that as a maturing character grows in stature before her friends that she sees less stature while evaluating herself.“ The Call of the Canyon
