Quote from Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

They send a person who can never stay,” she whispered. “Who can never accept my offer of companionship for more than a little while. They send me a hero I can’t help … just the sort of person I can’t help falling in love with.”…As I sailed into the lake I realized the Fates really were cruel. They sent Calypso someone she couldn’t help but love. But it worked both ways. For the rest of my life I would be thinking about her. She would always be my biggest what if.

Be careful of love. It’ll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong.

Are you guys busy?” Juniper asked. “Well,” I said, “we’re in the middle of this game against a bunch of monsters and we’re trying not to die.” “We’re not busy,” Annabeth said.

Quote from Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

A demigod!” one snarled.”Eat it!” yelled another.But that’s as far as they got before I slashed a wide arc with Riptide and vaporized the entire front row of monsters.”Back off!” I yelled at the rest, trying to sound fierce. Behind them stood their instructor–a six-foot tall telekhine with Doberman fangs snarling at me. I did my best to stare him down.”New lesson, class,” I announced. “Most monsters will vaporize when sliced with a celestial bronze sword. This change is completely normal, and will happen to you right now if you don’t BACK OFF!”To my surprise, it worked. The monsters backed off, but there was at least twenty of them. My fear factor wasn’t going to last that long.I jumped out of the cart, yelled, “CLASS DISMISSED!” and ran for the exit.

You deal with mythological stuff for a few years, you learn that paradises are usually places where you get killed.

Quote from Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

As I got closer to the fence, I held my shirt over my nose to block the smell. One stallion waded through the muck and whinnied angrily at me. He bared his teeth, which were pointed like a bear’s.I tried to talk to him in my mind. I can do that with most horses.I’m going to clean your stables. Won’t that be great?Come inside! Eat you! Tasty half-blood!Usually this gets me VIP treatment in the equestrian world, not this time.Poseidon can come in, too! We will eat you both! Seafood! The other horses chimed in as they waded through the field.

Rachel: You’re a half-blood, too?Annabeth: Shhh! Just announce it to the world, how about?Rachel: Okay. Hey, everybody! These two aren’t human! They’re half Greek god!…They don’t seem to care.

Peace : a lesson from greek mythology. Rodents cause around 20% of undetermined fires in the us every year. Make him desire you more.
