Check out the first season quotes here:

♚ A library is an island

A school should be a safe place. Brand new season to explore the mysteries around you. It should be a place to make new friends. It should be a place of comfort and adventure that feels almost like home. But as you and I know, school is hardly ever like that. [Lemony]

I library is an island in a vast sea of ignorance. [Klaus]

Why is any of us here? "Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them." Voltaire said that.

In a world governed by corruption and arrogance, it can be difficult to stay true to one's literary and philosophical principles.

In every library, there is a single book to answer the question that burns like a fire in the mind.

When the world is noisy, the world may feel as if it is coming apart.

♚ All nights are dark days

Interesting can mean a few different things. A polka-dot suit is interesting, but no one looks good in one.

All nights are dark days, because night is simply a badly-lit version of day. But a dark day also refers to a time when something terrible is going on.

It can sometimes be overwhelming to witness the series of unfortunate events that rumble through one's life like a mysterious automobile with is engine running. Which is why some people need to excuse themselves from time to time to a place where the world is quiet. Like a crystal ball ready for anyone who has an important question. I urge you to do the same.

You can never give up. You can never give up if you find yourself in terrible circumstances. You must keep struggling. You must struggle until you find a safe place to live. You must struggle until you find noble and reliable friends. You must struggle and struggle. Until the world can see who you really are.

If you have lost a friend, you know it makes your world feel incomplete, like a puzzle with a piece missing, or one half of a broken spyglass.

♚ Keep chasing

You gotta keep chasing your schemes. A journey begins with one single step. To get to the end you gotta schlep, schlep, schlep.


You nervous?

I'm anxious. I'm not sure if I'm ready to do this.

Me neither. If we wait until we're ready, we'll wait the rest of our lives.

♚ Sleep is natural

Sleep is natural, like cosmetics or frivolous lawsuits.

The world is complicated.
That's usually the case.

It may be difficult to believe, but at any moment, someone somewhere is in a dangerous situation and other people in some other place are dancing and having a good time. The world is often like this. A celebration here, terrible trouble just outside the door, but elsewhere, a chance to end a villain's treachery.

Someday perfidy will end.

♚ Bravery

We all learn bravery the hard way.

♚ Bad and good

What is bad news to one person might be good news to someone else. And sometimes, what seems like good news... might actually be something full of sadness, misery and grief.

-That would take deus ex machina.
-What's that?
-It's a Latin term meaning ''god from the machine.'' Something helpful happening when you least expect.

There's a term to describe the arrival of someone helpful when you least expect it. The term comes from very old plays. Near the end of the play when things seem especially dire, a powerful authority figure arrives on a mechanical device to save the day. For this reason, the term for such an occurrence is ''the god from the machine,'' or in the original Latin, ''deus ex machina.''

when you drive away in secret
you'll be a volunteer
so don't scream when we take you...
the world is quiet here.

♚ No chance at all

A last chance is better than no chance at all.

- Paperwork makes the world go round.
- I thought money did that.

The smell of hospitals depresses me.

Just about everything in this world is easier said than done, with the exception of ''assisting Sisyphus's cyst-susceptible sister,'' which is easier done than said. Finding a safe place is easier said than done.

I know how dark and lonely the world must feel. But you can always find a kind person who's willing to shine a light on you when you need it. Eventually, you'll learn to shine a light on others in need.

The hardest part of life on the lam is to keep moving, often in a direction that seems wrong, dangerous of an agonizing combination of both. Sometimes, as in this moment in the life of Violet Baudelaire, there simply isn't any other choice to make, even if you end up regretting your actions for the rest of your life, however short that may be.

♚ Let you down

In my experience, people who say they want to help you are the one that let you down the most.

But sometimes we make sacrifices in the name of advancement.

When you read an enormous number of books, you are going to learn a great deal of information that might nog be useful for a long time. Then suddenly like a strike of lightning or a grnad piano falling out of a window, an opportunity arises to use the information gleaned from even the most unlikely piece of reading.

Any real doctor would never perform a procedure without explaining everything first.

♚ What it feels like

Do you know what it feels like to have your life spins out of control, as if driven by the cruel whims of some unpredictable madman?

What does your heart desire?

A person might say a sunrise is a miracle, even though it happens every day and too early in the morning. Somebody else might say that leaping successfully from a train is a miracle, even though that happens every day and too early in the morning.

"The curious thing about being told to sleep on it, is that you usually can't. 'Sleep on it' is a phrase which here means 'to go to bed thinking about something in the hopes of reaching a conclusion.' It's much easier to sleap when you've made up your mind."

"There'll be losses along the way. We may never triumph, not completely. we may be defeated, at leas for a time. But we will never disappear. Not so long as there ar noble, well-read people to take up the torch."

"It can be frustrating to live in suspense. Not knowing what's arond the next curve in the road. You may feel as if you are on the edge of a cliff, not knowing if you will fall. How sharp the rocks are at the bottom, or if you will have time to scream. But life is like that. It's a cliff-hanger."
