Whenever there is a meeting, a parting is sure to follow. However, that parting need not last forever. Whether a parting be forever or merely for a short time… that is up to you. —The Happy Mask Salesman
(Edit: Sorry, one more...)
BUT, VERILY, IT BE THE NATURE OF DREAMS TO END! WHEN I DOST AWAKEN, KOHOLINT WILL BE GONE... ONLY THE MEMORY OF THIS DREAM LAND WILL EXIST IN THE WAKING WORLD... SOMEDAY, THOU MAY RECALL THIS ISLAND... THAT MEMORY MUST BE THE REAL DREAM WORLD... -The Wind Fish
Do you sleep still? Wait! Do not be so hasty, boy... I can see this girl's dreams... Oceans... Oceans... Oceans... Oceans... Oceans as far as the eye can see. They are vast seas... None can swim across them... They yield no fish to catch... What did the King of Hyrule say?... That the gods sealed Hyrule away? And they left behind people who would one day awaken Hyrule? How ridiculous... So many pathetic creatures, scattered across a handful of islands, drifting on this sea like fallen leaves on a forgotten pool... What they can possibly hope to achieve? Don't you see? All of you... Your gods destroyed you! I have been waiting for you, boy. For one like you... Yes... For the hero. Do not betray my expectations. - Ganondorf, The Wind Waker.
Easily the most powerful quote in the series. WW Ganondorf is the best iteration of him, hands down.
A friend and I are currently posting Zelda quotes writing in the Ancient Hylian font used in TempleQuest back a forth so I've had plenty of opportunity to think about this.
I love Sheik outside the Forest Temple (in fact all of hers): 'The flow of time is always cruel... It's speed seems different for each person, but no one can change it... A thing that doesn't change with time is a memory of younger days.'
I also agree with Paynetrayne11 and would have to say that of the ones from the children, my favourite is: 'The right thing... what is it? I wonder...if you do the right thing... does it make... everybody... happy?'
From Wind Waker, I love: 'These are special clothes made from a special fabric that only the honest can see.' (Grandma, on your second play through)
