“If I could paint, I would do it myself.”
“When I was little, I used to run out into the rain and let the water run all over me. Then one day I saw lightning split a tree nearly in half. That pretty much took the joy out of prancing around in thunderstorms.”

“Смятам, че ако утре бъдат изобретени и построени апарати, с които ще можем да летим до най-отдалечената звезда, до някои от онези светове, чиято светлина, според собствените ни фатални изчисления, ще достигне до нас много след изстиването на земята, ако утре бъдем транспортирани там в едно още незапочнало време, ще заварим на тази звезда същия ужас, същите страдания, същата лудост и умопомрачение. Вярвам, че ако се приспособим дотолкова добре към ритъма на звездите над нас, та да избегнем чудото на стълкновението, ще успеем също да се нагодим и към съдбата, която бива задействана едновременно тук, там, отвъд земните предели и навсякъде. И следователно тази всеобща съдба не може да бъде избегната, освен ако всички заедно: хора, животни, растения, минерали, камъни, реки, дървета и планини, не пожелаят това – едновременно, тук и там, отвъд земните предели и навсякъде.”

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.
