“I saw the empty, sad girl
smile for the sad boy who loves her with all of his
broken soul.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“You shouldn’t
date someone if your heart is owned by someone
else. It doesn’t work, trust me.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“It’s
not so easy to walk away from someone when he
has made his way into every cell, when he has
taken over every thought, and he has been
responsible for the best and worst feelings I’ve
ever had. No one, not even the doubting part of me,
can make me feel bad for loving passionately and
hoping desperately that I could have that great love
that I’ve read about in novels.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“I’m truly sorry that I ruined you,” I whisper into her hair as her breathing begins to show signs of sleep. “Me, too,” she breathes, and regret fills in the little spaces between us as she drifts off.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“I want him to look in the mirror and smile, not scowl. I need him to not think of himself as a monster. I need him to see the real him, because if he doesn’t pull himself out of the villain role, it will destroy him, and I’ll just be left with ashes. I just needed to get it all out because I feel like I’m drowning, and it’s hard to keep myself above water,especially when I’m fighting against the current to save him rather than myself.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“I couldn’t comprehend the magnetic pull
that could be felt. I never understood the way love
overpowers common sense and passion overtakes
logic, or how unnerving it is that no one else really knows how you feel—no one can judge me for being weak or stupid, no one can put me down for
the way I feel.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“There’s always another day, there’s always a way to make up for the shit you’ve done and the people you’ve hurt, and there is always someone who loves you, even when you feel like you’re completely alone and you’re just out there floating along, waiting for the next disappointment. There is always something better to come.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“The feeling of not being wanted somewhere when you aren't sure how to leave is one of the worst feelings.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“He wants her to know that she was his savior and that he could never repay her for everything she has done for him, and that he loves her with his entire soul and nothing will ever change that. He wants to remind her that whatever their souls are made of, his and hers are the same. Their favorite novel said it best.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“You won’t know how lucky you are to be able to spend your life with the other half of your soul until you have to spend your life without them.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“It’s impossible to change people who have their mind set on who they are.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“No one has to know until we adopt in a few years. I’m sure there are loads of damn babies waiting for parents to buy them. We will be fine.”

I know she hasn’t accepted my offer of marriage, or even being in a relationship with me, but I hope she doesn’t use this opportunity to remind me of that.

She laughs softly. “Damn babies? Please tell me you don’t think there is a store somewhere downtown where you walk in and purchase a baby?” She lifts her hand to her mouth to stop herself from laughing at me.

“There isn’t?” I joke. “What’s Babies ‘R’ Us, then?”

“Oh my goodness!” She tilts her head back in laughter.

I reach across the small space between us and grab hold of her hand. “If that damn store isn’t full of babies, lined up, ready for purchase, than I’m suing for false advertisement.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“I guess that's the thing about betrayal; it holds no prejudice and preys on those who neither see it coming nor deserve it.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“no matter how hard you try. They have to want it as bad as you do or there is no hope.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“Seriously, it's okay to be sad, but if you let sadness control your life, you'll never have one.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“The worst part of being okay is that okay is far from happy. Okay is that gray space in the middle where you can wake up each day and carry on with your life, even laugh and smile often, but okay isn’t joy. Okay isn’t looking forward to each second of your day, and okay isn’t getting the most out of life. Being okay is what most people settle for, myself included, and we pretend that okay is fine, when we actually hate it, and we spend the majority of our time waiting to break out of just being okay. He gave me a taste of how great life can be outside of okay, and I’ve missed it ever since. I’ve been okay for a long time, and I’m not sure how to get out of it now, but I hope for the day that I can say I’m great instead of I’m okay.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“Her laugh, her laugh was the sound that brought him out of the darkness and into the light. Her laugh dragged him, by his damn collar, through the bullshit clouding his mind and infecting his thoughts.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“Whatever the hell our souls are made of, they are the same.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“You won't know how lucky you are to be able to spend your life with the other half of your soul until you have to spend your life without them.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“After everything, we made it. Whatever the hell our souls are made of, they are the same.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“No se de que están hechas las almas. pero la mía y la suya son una sola.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“And the irony is that as soon as he finally had something, someone worth living for, he’s gone. Like he couldn’t handle that much goodness.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy

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 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.
