  1. “If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.”

    From the first book! 😀

  2. Confidence is ignorance. If you’re feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know.

  3. “Confidence is ignorance. If your feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know” I think it was from the first book

  4. “My bugs don’t have bugs.”

  5. “You’re going to wash out in six months,” continued Root, “ and probably cost me a fortune.” He was wrong about the first, but right about the second.

  6. “Recon was a notoriously dangerous posting with a high fatality rate, and Root didn’t think it was any place for a girlie. Well, he was just going to have to get used to the idea, because Holly Short had no intention of quitting for him or anybody else.”
    Holly broke boundaries. She pushed through when I one else would and beat everyone’s expectations. She’s a role model for young women throughout the world, but she’s also a role model for anyone, anywhere, who is told they can’t do something because of their gender or background.

  7. “Confidence is ignorance. If you’re feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know”

  8. Geneva Standbridge

    “Let us proceed under the assumption that the fairy folk do exist, and that I am not a gibbering moron.”

  9. “I hate lolipops”
    – Artemis Fowl the 2nd

  10. “Seven and a half hours to save the world. Isn’t there some law that says we get at least twenty-four?” -Holly Short

  11. In the English original, it’s “Trust me. I’m a genius.”

    But in the German version I used to read when I was younger, it’s:
    “Der Trick bei Verhandlungen bestand darin, von Anfang an alle Karten in der Hand zu haben oder zumindest so auszusehen, als ob dem so wäre.”

  12. “Let us proceed under the assumption that the fairy folk do exist, and that I am not a gibbering moron.”

  13. “At the risk of sounding clichéd, I’ve been expecting you”

  14. ‘Fowl! Open the door your pasty-faced mud weasel!’

    Just because it sums up Holly and Artemis relationship perfectly. Even if this was early days for them.

  15. “Trust me. I’m a genius.”

  16. “No me gusta ese trasero, parece que me está sonriendo”. Mayordomo

  17. ‘It’s like learning to ride a Unicorn. You never forget’
    ‘I want you to know, my dear friend, that without you, I would not be the person I am today.’ He leaned in close and whispered, ‘I was a broken boy, and you fixed me. Thank you.’

  18. “I suppose it’s redundant to ask whether or not you’re up to something? Artemis Fowl is always up to something”

  19. And if history had taught any lessons it was that humans couldn’t get along with anyone, even themselves.

  20. “If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written”

  21. I never tell anyone exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.

  22. “If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written”

    Love that.

  23. Maybe I owe you something too, human,” she said, drawing her pistol. Butler almost reacted, but decided to give Holly the benefit of the doubt.

    Captain Short plucked a gold coin from her belt, flicking it fifty feet into the moonlit sky. With one fluid movement, she brought her weapon up and loosed a single blast. The coin rose another fifty feet, then spun earthward. Artemis somehow managed to snatch it from the air. The first cool movement of his young life.

    “Nice shot,” he said. The previously solid disk now had a tiny hole in the center.

    Holly held out her hand, revealing the still raw scar on her finger. “If it wasn’t for you, I would have missed altogether. No mech-digit can replicate that kind of accuracy. So, thank you too, I suppose.”

    Artemis held out the coin.

    “No,” said Holly. “You keep it, to remind you.”

    “To remind me?”

    Holly stared at him frankly. “To remind you that deep beneath the layers of deviousness, you have a spark of decency. Perhaps you could blow on that spark occasionally.”

    Artemis closed his fingers around the coin. It was warm against his palm.

    “Yes, perhaps.

  24. “Are you telling me that fat from a dwarf’s backside is going to be injected into my head?”

  25. “I never tell anybody exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.”
    -Artemis Fowl: The eternity code

  26. “I don’t like lollipops”

  27. “Butler could kill you a hundred different ways without use of his armoury. Though I’m sure one would be quite sufficient.”

  28. “Wasn’t there a plasma cannon back here somewhere?”
    “No. You donated that to the orphanage.”

  29. “Oh, but I’m not concerned with “us all.” Just myself. And believe me–I shall be perfectly fine. Now sit, please.”

  30. Confidence is ignorance. If you’re feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know.

  31. “I hunted you.”

  32. Aurum Potestas Est

  33. “Not the stripy ones, they’re just little babies”
    -Foaly, the Atlantis Complex

  34. “And if history had taught any lessons it was that humans couldn’t get along with anyone, even themselves.”

  35. “If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose then I’m mad. That’s the way history is written.”

  36. “If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose then I’m mad. That’s the way history is written”

  37. “Ambition had a price, and that price was friendship.”

    This quote literally sums up the entire over-arching theme of the series. Deciding which is more important, and which will make you happier in life. Watching the way this idea is used throughout the series is what makes the ending so bittersweet.

  38. “Let us proceed under the assumption that the fairy folk do exist, and that I am not a gibbering moron”.

  39. “I’m right there with you, darlin’. Unless you step on a landmine, in which case I’m way back in the Operations Room”.

  40. “Look!” said Foaly, pointing with some urgency into the vast steel-gray gloom, “Soneone who cares!”

  41. “Are you suggesting I occasionally stray from the rule book?”
    “No. I’m suggesting you do not own a copy of the rule book, and if you do, you have certainly never opened it.”

  42. “I’m the nut.”

  43. “I was a broken boy, and you fixed me. Thank you.” ~ Artemis Fowl, The Last Guardian

  44. Georgiana Catharine Holton

    “I don’t like lollipops”

  45. “Artemis the hunter. I hunted you.”

  46. “Tell me,” Artemis said, his voice still weak. “How do I know you?”
    And so Holly began her story: “It all started in Ho Chi Minh City one summer. It was sweltering by anyone’s standards. needless to say, Artemis Fowl would not have been willing to put up with such discomfort if something extremely important had not been at stake. Important to the plan…”
    The ending going full circle brought tears to my eyes when I first read it.

  47. “If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.”

  48. “I was a broken boy, and you fixed me. Thank you.”

  49. “At the risk of sounding clichéd, I’ve been expecting you.”

  50. Artemis Fowl made for a strange early morning viewing in the village of Duncade – a lone teenager in a tattered suit, leaving a trail of ash behind him as he climbed through a stone stile and half stumbled along the quay front.

  51. “I am unarmed, but Butler here, my… ah… butler, has a Sig Sauer in his shoulder holster, two shrike-throwing knives in his boots, a derringer two-shot up his sleeve, garrote wire in his watch, and three stun grenades concealed in various pockets. Anything else, Butler?”
    -Artemis Fowl

  52. “Just push that button before I get over there and push it with your face.”

  53. “And if history had taught any lessons it was that humans couldn’t get along with anyone, even themselves.”

  54. “I never tell anyone exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.”

  55. Violeta de Anca Prado

    Confidence is ignorance. If you’re feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know.

    I just love this quote!!

  56. “If I win, I’m a genius. If I lose, I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.”

  57. “I feel a little dizzy, but also wonderfully elated. I feel that I am on the verge of finding a rhyme for the word orange.”

    I mean Orion has the best quotes of all

  58. Artemis Fowl will never be secondary.” “I thought you were Artemis Fowl the Second?” said Holly

  59. “I was a broken boy, and you fixed me.”
    I’ll literally never be over this line.

  60. “Ambition had a price, and that price was friendship.” from the first book is one of my favourites.

  61. “If you were me then I’d be you and if I were you then I’d hide somewhere far away.”

  62. “I was a broken boy, and you fixed me. Thank you.”

  63. “You need to stop thinking with your head, Mud Boy, and start thinking with your heart.”
    -Mulch Diggums(The Last Guardian)

  64. “Stay back,human. You don’t know what you’re dealing with.”
    The boy laughed.”I believe, fairy, that you are the one unfamiliar with the facts.”
    It could sum up the whole Artemis Fowl Book 1.

  65. “The world will remember the name of Artemis Fowl.” – The Eternity Code, pg. 309.

  66. “Look how long it took to shut down Napster.” – Artemis, The Eternity Code, pg. 11.

  67. “You need to stop thinking with your head, Mud Boy, and start thinking with your heart.”

  68. “I’m right there with you, darlin’. Unless you step on a landmine, in which case I’m way back in the Operations Room.”

  69. Doubts assuaged, Butler returned to his copy of Guns and Ammo, leaving his employer to unravel the secrets of the universe. (Artemis Fowl, pg 17)

  70. “He was in a jet six thousand metres over Europe, planning the destruction of a species with a deranged Extinctionist.
    ‘Perhaps I am too young for all this.'”

  71. “Holly would be proud. I am talking to an animal.”

  72. “How does one describe Artemis Fowl?”

  73. “If I win, I’m a genius. If I lose, I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.”

  74. Isabela Batista de Lima

    “Stay back, human. You don’t know what you’re dealing with.”

  75. “And what about you, Arty? Will you make the journey with me? When the moment comes, will you take your chance to be a hero?”

  76. “‘You keep it, to remind you.’ ‘To remind me?’ Holly stared at him frankly. ‘ To remind you that deep beneath the layers pf deviousness, the is a spark of decency. Perhaps you could blow on that spark occasionally.'”

  77. “‘You keep it, to remind you.’ ‘To remind me?’ Holly stared at him frankly. ‘ To remind you that deep beneath the layers pf deviousness, the is a spark of decency. Perhaps you could blow on that spark occasionally.'”

  78. “‘Well young man, have you found anyone worthy of your respect?’ Artemis smiled back. ‘Yes’, he said. ‘I believe I have’.”

  79. “‘You keep it, to remind you.’ ‘To remind me?’ Holly stared at him frankly. ‘ To remind you that deep beneath the layers pf deviousness, the is a spark of decency. Perhaps you could blow on that spark occasionally.'”

  80. “When the moment comes, will you take your chance to be a hero?” ~ Eoin Colfer (AF: The Eternity Code)

    In my mind this quote is a perfect summary of all the characters and really shows what the entire series was about and the character development that occurred.

  81. “A familiar eletric buzz was crackling over his skin. This was the beginning of something. He could feel it.”

  82. Let us proceed under the assumption that the fairy folk do exist and that I am not a gibbering moron.

  83. At the risk of sounding clichéd, I’ve been expecting you

  84. “Lawyers. Everyone should have one”.
