Atreyu's Memorable Quotes:
Atreyu
The Childlike Empress
Bastian
What will happen if he doesn't appear?[sadly] Then our world will disappear - and so will I.How could he let that happen?He doesn't understand that he's the one who has the power to stop it. He simply can't imagine that one little boy could be that important.Is it really me?Maybe he doesn't know what he has to do![shouts] What DO I have to do?He has to give me a new name. He's already chosen it. He just has to call it out.
G'mork
Atreyu
If you come any closer, I will rip you to shreds.Who are you?I am G'mork. And you, whoever you are, can have the honor of being my last victim.I will not die easily. I am a warrior!Ha! Brave warrior, then fight the Nothing.But I can't! I can't get beyond the boundaries of Fantasia!

[G'mork laughs and Atreyu gets a little angry]

What's so funny about that?Fantasia has no boundaries.

[laughs]

That's not true! You're lying.Foolish boy. Don't you know anything about Fantasia? It's the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.But why is Fantasia dying, then?Because people have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams. So the Nothing grows stronger.What is the Nothing?It's the emptiness that's left. It's like a despair, destroying this world. And I have been trying to help it.But why?Because people who have no hopes are easy to control; and whoever has the control... has the power!Who are you, really?I am the servant of the power behind the Nothing. I was sent to kill the only one who could have stopped the Nothing. I lost him in the Swamps of Sadness. His name... was Atreyu.

[the ground shakes again and Atreyu is knocked down. He grabs a knife shaped piece of broken stone and stands up, ready to fight]

If we're about to die anyway, I'd rather die fighting! Come for me, G'mork! *I* am Atreyu!

Bastian
It was the only way to get in touch with an earthling.But I didn't get in touch with an earthling!Yes, you did. He has suffered with you. He went through everything you went through; and now, he has come here with you. He is very close... listening to every word, we say.

[as he is reading, Bastian can't believe it]
