Eragon: (to Saphira) What wisdom can I give people that they haven't already learned? What feats can I achieve that an army couldn't do better? It's insanity!
Eragon: (to Saphira) It's overwhelming. I feel as if I am living in an illusion, a dream where all things are possible. Amazing things do happen, I know, but always to someone else, always in some far-off place and time.
Saphira: (to Eragon) A hatchling, that is what you are. A hatchling struggling into the world. I may be younger than you in years, but I am ancient in my thoughts. Do not worry about these things. Find peace in where and what you are. People often know what must be done. All you need to do is show them the way- that is wisdom. As for feats, no army could have given the blessing you did.
Saphira: (to Eragon) After all, how can a mere dragon expect to tell a man like yourself what to do? In fact, everyone should stand in awe of your brilliance of finding the only dead end.
Eragon: (to Saphira) That's the problem! I've been choosing male names. You are a she!
Eragon: "Are you Saphira?" She looked at him with intelligent eyes. Deep in his mind he felt her satisfaction.
Saphira: Yes.
Saphira: If anything happens, I'm going to pin you to my back and never let you off.
Eragon: I love you too.
Saphira:Then I will bind you all the tighter.
(After Brom beats Eragon)
Saphira: Nothing. It's funny to see a hatchling like you beaten by the old one.
Saphira: (to Eragon) Together we can cast spells that are beyond either of us.
Saphira: No hunter of the sky should end his days as prey. Better to die on the wing than pinned to the ground.
Eragon: Saphira, where are you? Let's have some fun!
Eragon: My heart died a while back.
Saphira: The worth is in the act. Your worth halts when you surrender the will to change and experience life.
Saphira: The only true guide is your heart.
Eragon: If I drank that much mead it would kill me!
Saphira: That's why you're not a dragon.
Eragon: I will fight when needed, revel when there's an occasion, mourn when there is grief, and die if my time comes...but I won't let anybody use me against my will.
Eragon: (movie) I have skills!
Eragon: Should I kill him?
Eragon: I was no more resposible for my conduct than if I were drunk.
Eragon: Sometimes there are no answers.


Brom: You don't know what it is to reach my age, look back, and realize that you don't remember much of it: then to look forward and know that many years still lie ahead of you...
Brom: Well, then... if you do, come tell me. I am most interested in this trader who pretends to know so much about dragons.
Brom: Anyway, I'm not going to stay behind while some stripling gets to run around with a dragon.
Brom: Defend yourself!
Brom: Once upon a time that was true... but no more. When I was young... younger than you are now, I was chosen... chosen by the Riders to join their ranks. While they trained me, I became friends with another apprentice... Morzan, before he was a Forsworn. But then he betrayed us to Galbatorix... and in the fighting at Doru Areaba - Vroengard's city - my young dragon was killed. Her name... was Saphira.
Brom: May the coming years bring you great happiness.
Brom: There's a reason why we're born with brains in our heads, not rocks.
Brom: (as he dies) And now for the greatest adventure of all.
Brom: (apologizes) Sorry
Brom: May your swords stay sharp.
Brom: One part brave, three parts fool.
Brom: You can't argue with all the fools in the world. It's better to let them have their way, then trick them when they're not paying attention.
Brom: Many people have died for their beliefs...The real courage is living and suffering for what you believe.
Brom: People have an annoying habit of remembering things they shouldn't.

Wind howled through the night, carrying a scent that would change the world.
Durza: After her! She is the one I want!
Eragon: Why are you here?
The Shade looked at him with contempt in his red eyes and smiled
Durza: To gloat, of course. What use is a victory if one cannot enjoy it?
Solembum: Listen closely and I will tell you two things. When the time comes and you need a weapon, look under the roots of the Menoa tree. Then, when all seems lost and your power is insufficient, go to the rock of Kuthian and speak your name to open the Vault of Souls.
Solembum: Knowing is independent of being. I did not know you existed before you bumbled in here and ruined my nap. Yet that doesn't mean you weren't real before you woke me.
Ajihad: You are an enigma, Eragon, a quandary that no one knows how to solve.
Nasuada: I met Murtagh earlier....he's anxious to speak with you. He seemed lonely; you should visit him.
Arya: Farewell Eragon, rider of dragons...my life is in your hands.
Eragon: Thanks, again.
Murtagh: Don't mention it.

Murtagh: You aren't the only enemies the Ra'zac have. I was tracking them.
Murtagh: My mind is the only sanctuary that has not been stolen from me. Men have tried to breach it before, but I've learned to defend it vigorously, for I am only safe with my innermost thoughts.
Murtagh: Do you think I enjoy this? My life has been threatened from the day I was born! All of my waking hours have been spent avoiding danger in one form or another. And sleep never comes easily because I always worry if I'll live to see the dawn. If there ever was a time I felt secure, it must have been in my mother's womb, though I wasn't safe even there! You don't understand - if you lived with this fear, you would have learned the same lesson I did: Do not take chances.
Murtagh:Black humor, is the only one I have
