― Debora Geary, quote from A Modern Witch

“Nat gave her a lopsided grin.  “Something like that.” “This is one weird February.”
― Debora Geary, quote from A Modern Witch



“She yanked open the door of the bagel shop and gratefully charged inside. Her mind reeled.  Too many voices, too many feelings, too much.  Lauren felt her stomach churning and clutched the door handle.  She focused on the handle.  That was the way out.  The three steps to carry her back out the door were a marathon.  When the door closed, she sank to her knees.”
― Debora Geary, quote from A Modern Witch


“ “I’m pretty sure if it weren’t for you, I’d have spent the rest of my life terrified of crowded places.  I can’t thank you enough.”

― Debora Geary, quote from A Modern Witch


“It’s because I’m a witch that I can take these pictures,” Jennie said.  “A good portrait photographer shows the outside of a person; a great one shows the inside.  Being a mind witch makes it a little easier to see the inside, to know what the photograph needs to show.”
― Debora Geary, quote from A Modern Witch


“As instructed, she visualized the first moves in her mind, and then began.  No words—her class was supposed to be reading the pictures in her mind.  Knees bend, arms sweep up, breathe in.  Stretch for the gorgeous blue sky and feel the warmth.  Breathe out, arms sweep down and to heart center.  Repeat.”
― Debora Geary, quote from A Modern Witch



“I have new batteries in the iPod, so she can have her own personal force field back. ”
― Debora Geary, quote from A Modern Witch

“I was thinking, over Thanksgiving, that I don’t really know him. I don’t know what makes him tick—made him tick. Like, if he were the main character in the book I was reading, it’d only be chapter two. I’d know his name and who was in his daily life, but I’d be waiting to find out that thing that would make me care about his story. At least, that’s how I felt before. There was a whole book left. The promise that maybe if I kept reading I’d learn enough to make me like him—care about him. Only now, it’s like he was just a secondary character—a tertiary character. And the author hadn’t even thought about any more of a story for him. There just isn’t any more of him. And, I don’t know. That makes me fucking sad because I think probably he felt the same way about me. I know he cared about me, at least a little. I mean, I think so. And Colin and the guys, they knew him. And they’re fucking devastated he’s dead. And I’m jealous because….”
“Because?” Ginger prods.
“Because they were a family and I wasn’t part of it,”
― Roan Parrish, quote from In the Middle of Somewhere

About BookQuoters

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 2023, 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.
