Quotes

Men have always hated us.
- Blackberry
No. They just destroyed the warren because we were in their way.
- Holly
They'll never rest until they've spoiled the earth.
- Fiver
All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and when ever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you: digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.
- Frith
O Frith on the hills! He made it all for us!
- Dandelion
Frith may have made it, but Fiver found it.
- Hazel
Lord Frith, you've done so much for me already, and I know it's wrong to ask for even more now, but my people are in terrible danger. I propose a bargain: my life for theirs.
- Hazel
There is not a day that goes by when a doe does not offer her life for her kittens, or an honest officer of an Owsla his life for his chief's, but there will be no bargain. What is is what must be.
- Frith
Bigwig, you traitoress!
- General Woundwort
Captain, get this miserable group back to their marks. I'll settle you myself, Bigwig. There's no need to take you back.
- General Woundwort
Come and try, you cracked-brain slave driver!
- Bigwig
