Zero Quotes

Three of the best book quotes from Zero
  1. #1
    ″[Stanley] remembered what Zero had said a few days before. If Zero had just kept those shoes, then neither of them would be here right now.
    As Stanley stared at the glittering night sky, he thought there was no place he would rather be. He was glad Zero put the shoes on the parked car. He was glad they fell from the overpass and hit him on the head.
    When the shoes first fell from the sky, he remembered thinking that destiny had struck him. Now, he thought so again. It was more than a coincidence. It had to be destiny.”
  2. #2
    “You don’t have to teach me to write,” said Zero. “Just to read. I don’t have anybody to write to.”
    “Sorry,” Stanley said again.
    His muscles and hands weren’t the only parts of his body that had toughened over the past several weeks. His heart had hardened as well.
  3. #3
    “Stanley’s mother insists that there never was a curse. She even doubts whether Stanley’s great-great-grandfather really stole a pig. The reader might find it interesting, however, that Stanley’s father invented his cure for foot odor the day after the great-great-grandson of Elya Yelnats carried the great-great-great-grandson of Madame Zeroni up the mountain.”
