"Warriors is action. Warriors is courage. Warriors is loyalty."

Bluestar, Into the Wild

"The elders say that the cold winds from the north blow over ShadowClan cats and chill their hearts."
Graypaw, Into the Wild

Tigerclaw: "Even you, Firepaw, have learned something this morning. If Ravenpaw picked up things as quickly as you, he'd be a credit to me instead of an embarrassment. Imagine being shown up by a kittypet!"
Graypaw: "Well, I'm more lopsided than a one-legged badger. I think I'll have to settle for hunting stupid mice. They won't stand a chance. I shall just wander up to them and sit on them till they surrender."
Into the Wild

Tigerclaw: "Will about you, Dustpelt? You'll have richer pickings with me than you ever will in ThunderClan."
Dustpelt: "I looked up to you. I wanted to be like you. But Redtail was my mentor. I owe him more than any cat. And you killed him. You killed him and betrayed the Clan. I'd rather die than follow you."
Forest of Secrets

"Keep your eyes open, Fireheart. Keep your ears pricked. Keep looking behind you. Because one day I'll find you, and then you'll be crowfood."
Tigerclaw, Forest of Secrets

"You're still beautiful to me. You always will be."
Cloudtail to Brightheart, A Dangerous Path

A vast, unnatural silence covered everything. With the rational part of his mind, Fireheart realized that all the prey had been scared away by the rampaging dog pack, but in the grip of his grief it seemed that even the forest was stunned into mourning Bluestar.
The Darkest Hour

"Firestar, a dark time is coming. Four will become two. Lion and Tiger will meet in battle. And Blood will rule the forest."

Scourge: "How? I killed you!"
Firestar: "You did. But I am a leader with nine lives who fights alongside StarClan. Can you say as much?"

Jayfeather, The Sight

"You have no idea how much pain I'm in. It's like being cut open every day, bleeding onto the stones. I can't believe you failed to see the blood."
Ashfur, Long Shadows

"After the roaring lion and the sharp-eyed jay, peace will come on dove's gentle wing."
Omen of the Stars prophecy

"The end of the stars draws near. Three must become Four to battle the darkness that lasts forever."
Omen of the Stars prophecy

"Show some respect, apprentice. You don't want to die in a place like this. There's nowhere beyond here, you know. Only darkness."
Mapleshade, Night Whispers

"Mothwing was born an idiot. She'll die an idiot."
Yellowfang, Night Whispers

"Destiny isn't a path that any cat follows blindly. It is always a matter of choice, and sometimes the heart speaks loudest. Deep down, I knew what I had to do, and that's why I came back to the Clan. Whatever else happens, I trust you to know the right thing to do as well. Listen to your heart, Lionblaze, because that's where your true destiny lies."
Leafpool, Sign of the Moon

"I will wait for you forever, Jay's Wing!"
Half Moon, Sign of the Moon

"I have returned. Let vengeance begin."
Sol, The Forgotten Warrior

"Hollyleaf! I won't let you run away again!"
Lionblaze, The Forgotten Warrior

Mousefur: "I never thought I'd live to see the end of the Clans."

"Every sacrifice I make is for the good of my Clan- and the other Clans around the lake. Even if that means sacrificing myself."

"All along it has been Firestar's kin who have carried the hope of the Clans in their paws."
Spottedleaf, The Last Hope

"What is the point of a life held in the paws of another? There must be choice. There must be freedom. I can point the way, but every cat must walk on its own paws."
Rock, The Last Hope

"I envy your faith. You can always find hope, even in the darkest moments."
Mothwing, The Last Hope

"I may not share your faith, but I'll always help you fight for what you believe in."
Mothwing, The Last Hope

Cinderheart: "Is something wrong?"
Lionblaze: "You have a destiny. Just like every cat. But you also have a choice. And so do I. Our destinies guide our paws, but they don't shape every step. That's up to us. We walk the path we choose. Whatever our destiny says, we still have to choose our own path, don't you see? We can walk side by side if we wish."
Cinderheart: "It's not that easy!"
Lionblaze: "It is!"
Cinderheart: "My head is so full of memories! I feel as though there are two lives inside me, not one. How can it be my choice to make? Doesn't Cinderpelt have a choice? I can't make her a warrior! She was a medicine cat!"
Lionblaze: "She chose you. She gave you the choice. You can only live one life, Cinderpelt. It's your choice! This is your destiny, not Cinderpelt's. She lived her own life."
Cinderheart: "Then I choose the life of a warrior. And I choose you."
(A shadow floats up from Cinderheart.)
???: "Thank you."
Lionblaze: "Did you see that?"
Cinderheart: "It was Cinderpelt. I've set her free."
Lionblaze: "Will you fight alongside me?"
Cinderheart: "Always."
The Last Hope

Redwillow: "I'm loyal to my new Clan! Your time is over, you're nothing but an elder growing old [over and over. Why don't you just give up and die?"
Blackstar: "I am still leader of this Clan. And you have betrayed us all."
The Last Hope

Sandstorm: "Bramblestar!"
Lionblaze: "Bramblestar!"
ThunderClan: "Bramblestar! Bramblestar!"
Bramblestar: "I will honor my ancestors in StarClan, but not those who have ever walked in the Dark Forest. Guide my steps wisely, warriors of the past. And warriors of now."
Jayfeather: "It's time to choose a deputy."
Bramblestar: "Will you be my deputy, Squirrelflight?"
Squirrelflight: "Really?"
Bramblestar: "There is no cat I trust more. Everything you do is for the best of reasons. I understand that now."
Squirrelflight: "Then I accept."
Leafpool: "My sister. You deserve this honor, and more. Thank you, for everything."
Squirrelflight: "I would do it again in a heartbeat."
Jayfeather: "An ending, and a beginning."
The Last Hope

"There will be three cats, kin of your kin, with the power of the stars in their paws. They will find a fourth, and the battle between light and dark will be won. A new leader will rise from the shadows of his death, and the Clans will survive beyond the memories of his memories. This is how it has always been, and how it always will be."
Complete Prophecy of Three

Moon Shadow: "Who died and made you leader?"
Tall Shadow: "Shaded Moss, actually. And it's not a position that I ever asked for."
The Sun Trail

"The stars have looked down on this place for thousands of seasons. The stone beneath my paws has stood for endless moons. This great rock did not rise from the ground for me to sit on it. These trees did not grow to give you shelter. The grass did not cover the moor to soften our paw steps. The rabbits didn't hollow burrows for us to shelter in. The forest did not burn to destroy your home. This land isn't ours. We live here for a few short moons then disappear. But the land lives on. It isn't ours to claw into morsels and share like prey. We must honor it and protect it. It feeds us and shelters us. Can we all be united in that?"
Tall Shadow, The First Battle

"I have traveled so far and loved so much, yet I am still following the sun trail, heading for my new hunting grounds."
Gray Wing, Path of Stars

"Embrace what you find in the shadows, for only they can clear the sky."
A Vision of Shadows prophecy

"The first lesson of hunting is patience."
Stonepelt, Bluestar's Prophecy

"But from now on, we fight as a Clan. No warrior will go into battle alone. Where one fights, we all fight!"
Hailstar, Crookedstar's Promise

"Remember your promise? Remember the exact words? You vow to put your clan above everything else you want? Your mother, father, mate, kits, and leader! From that one promise, I could take everything precious to you!"
Mapleshade, Crookedstar's Promise

Mapleshade: "Your punishment is complete now, Crookedstar. You have lost everything."
Crookedstar: "No, Mapleshade. You're wrong. I still have a clan that I love and am proud to lead. And now... everything precious to me is here, in StarClan. My family is waiting here for me, when my ninth life has passed. It's you who have lost. You have no power over me anymore."
Mapleshade: "I have destroyed you!"
Crookedstar: "No, Mapleshade. I still have the cats that I loved. You have nothing and no one."
Crookedstar's Promise

"A storm of fire and blood will sweep the forest."
Yellowfang's Secret prophecy

"I learned a lot. Friendship and kinship matter more than adventure. Boundaries only exist in our minds. A heart can travel to the horizon without moving a paw step. And I made the best friend any cat ever had."
Talltail, Tallstar's Revenge

"StarClan knew you would be a good leader in your own right. That's why they led your paws along this path. Firestar didn't appoint you to be his echo, but to be yourself. He trusted you to protect ThunderClan, to make decisions for them based on your own judgement and instinct. You are the leader of ThunderClan now, Bramblestar. Not Firestar. Be the leader that you want to be. No cat expects anything else."
Sandstorm, Bramblestar's Storm

Sol: "I'm always overlooked! Never made leader of a patrol...always scorned because I used to be a kittypet! I can be a warrior!"
Leafstar: "No. You can't. You have no understanding of the warrior code at all. What you've done here proves it. You've risked the lives of young leaving them alone here. Anything could have happened to them. They could have been lost. They could have died. My kits could have died. But you didn't just betray me. You betrayed the entire Clan. You did all this...and you never considered how it would make any of us feel. The Clan is a family, Sol. A community. And you're incapable of thinking about anyone but yourself. I banish you from SkyClan. You've betrayed my trust, betrayed the warrior code...betrayed everything I thought you believed in."
After The Flood

"But loyalty and love are two very different things: all my life I've chosen loyalty, which has made my path much simpler."
Rock, Cats of the Clans

"If Leafpool is like water, calm, deep running, reflecting the stars, then Squirrelflight is fire. She has energy to scorch every tree in the forest, and a tongue that could leave scars in beech bark."
Rock, Cats of the Clans
