Hail to the Princess

I saw this onpapillon_enrage ‘s LJ this morning and couldn’t leave for work without chiming in. 

When you see this, post in your own journal with your favorite quote from The Princess Bride. Preferably not "As you wish" or the Inigo Montoya speech.

My favorite quote from The Princess Bride is not actually in the movie — it’s in the book:

"Rest then," her mother cautioned. "Terrible things can happen when you’re overtired. I was overtired the night your father proposed."

While I had the book out, I re-read Buttercup’s speech on Wesley’s front porch. *sigh* I dare any teenager who thinks Twilight is the most romantic book ever to read Chapter One — just Chapter One — of The Princess Bride.

I’m sure there have been many great, romantic books since 1642 BC.
This one leaves them all behind.
