“Your home is where your family is... Where someone waits for you and thinks about you.”
“So, Eva Nine, you must sometimes disregard what someone is saying and focus instead on what they are doing. Watch and observe. That is when one reveals his true self.”
“It reveals that people are confusing."
Rovender corrected her. "Not Confusing. Complex.”
“Strength is not just in muscle and bone," Rovender said
"That is right," Soth added. "Emotional strength is more powerful.”
“As Antiquus's son, I was next in line to be the leader of my village... But leadership is not inherited. It is earned through action.”
“Man was not designed to eat pills and powders and all the other chemicals they pump you full of. We were meant to live off the land in harmony with it. Not in some safety bubble.”
“We did not know that she had passed," Soth said. She held a palm up to the air. "Hopefully, her spirit has found serenity."
The council did the same. "Spirit find Serenity," they said in unison.”
“The essence will be evident everywhere. In all that the citizens do: in their art, music, food, and their buildings. If the essence of a place nourishes your spirit, then it is a good place to be" -Rovender”
“Some things we must learn through experience. That is how one truly lives." -Rovender”
“But leadership is not inherited. It is earned through action. You are a leader, Eva Nine. A hero. And you are my WondLa" -Rovender”
“It is because they are happier when they are together. They are safe. They are strong.”
“One can find happiness in a variety of places. It can be in a busy city of many, such as Solas; but it may also be alone, deep in a tranquil forest. It is not always among your kind" -Rovender”
“We have someone with us who is dying--someone whose spirit is ready to leave this world, she thought to the tree. But he wants to be with his clan. With his forest. Will you take us?”
“True, it has given its life," Rovender said. "But its energy, its spirit, will replenish yours. Respect that and enjoy the meal.”
“Eva, I recognize your confusion. It is not always easy to understand another's spirit, especially if you do not know where to look" -Rovender”
“One can din happiness in a variety of places. It can be in a busy city of many, such as Solas; but it may also be alone, deep in a tranquil forest. It is not always among your kind" -Rovender”
“A heart of compassion is just as hard to hold within you as one of indifference" -the Truth Bird”
“A child needs his parent at all times, Father. Not just when life is smiling down upon him" -Rovender”
“Some things we must learn through experience. That is how one truly lives.”
“Bir şeyi yapmanın en çabuk, en kolay ve en ucuz yolu ilk seferinde düzgün yapmaktır.”
“(Bottlenose dolphins engage in more same-sexual behavior than any other known creature.) As Denise Herzing concluded, “Dolphins love to have sex and they have sex a lot.”
“Oh, pfft. I manage. With any paper one sticks under their nose and plenty of self-possession, one can get through, Especially a woman. Sometimes I take an armload of parcels and bags and drop every single one as I try to find my identity cards, chatting all the while, and they wave me through out of sheer irritation.'
Lili exhaled a long steam of smoke. 'To tell the truth, much of this special work we do is quite boring. I think that's why women are good as it. Our lives are already boring. We jump an Uncle Edward's offer because we can't stand the thought of working in a file room anymore, or teaching a class full of runny-nosed children their letters. Then we discover this job is deadly dull as well, but at least there's the enlivening thought that someone might put a Luger to the back of our necks. It's still better than shooting ourselves, which we know we're going to do if we have to type one more letter or pound one more Latin verb into a child's ivory skull.”
“The Church’s war against women occurred not under Christ—who by all accounts held women as equals to men—but through the writings of St Irenaeus and Tertullian, and that most cruel woman-hater of them all, St Paul, whose hostile views on women were unfortunately included in the Bible. But let me be clear, it is not only a Catholic problem; it is a Christian one: Martin Luther, the scourge of the old Church, shares its views on women. He once wrote: “Girls begin to talk and to stand on their feet sooner than boys because weeds always grow up more quickly than good crops.” Weeds! Weeds!”
“Coming home is hard." Ven said.
"It shouldn't be" Daleina said. "They love me. I love them. It should be easy."
"Once you leave, it's never easy again. Or at least it's never the same. You're not the same. You can't expect them to be.
She nodded. "Sometimes they feel like strangers. And still, I'd die to protect them.”
BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.
We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.
Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
