“Friendship isn't measured in days, months or years, it's measured in the way someone makes you feel.”
― Alexa Land, quote from Against the Wall


“All parents make mistakes. They’re only human, so all of us grow up with at least a few invisible scars. But maybe that’s okay, because the hard times are what make us strong enough to survive all the crap life throws at us down the road.”
― Alexa Land, quote from Against the Wall


“What's life without perfectly certifiable friends?”
― Alexa Land, quote from Against the Wall


“Friendship isn't measured in days, months or years, it's measured in the way someone makes you feel. I knew you'd be a friend right from the start.”
― Alexa Land, quote from Against the Wall


“Art, like life, is really just a matter of how you choose to look at things.”
― Alexa Land, quote from Against the Wall



“We all die alone though, Shea. Even if we're surrounded by others, it's still a solo journey.”
― Alexa Land, quote from Against the Wall


“America took a drink from the tall glass in his hand, then spun around and took a few steps in my direction, cutting across the dance floor. In the next instant, his arms were flailing over his head and he fell like a tree that had been chopped down, tripping over God knows what and landing flat on his belly. Oh man, the poor guy was dance floor road kill. He knocked over at least ten people on his way down in a domino effect. The slippery ice that had flown out of his glass took out another dozen, most of them knocking down even more people as they fell. Chance was fairly nimble and managed to remain standing, but he was in the minority.”
― Alexa Land, quote from Against the Wall

“He saw clearly how plain and simple - how narrow, even - it all was; but clearly, too, how much it all meant to him, and the special value of some such anchorage in one's existence. He did not at all want to abandon the new life and its splendid spaces, to turn his back on sun and air and all they offered him and creep home and stay there; the upper world was all too strong, it called to him still, even down there, and he knew he must return to the larger stage. But it was good to think he had this to come back to, this place which was all his own, these things which were so glad to see him again and could always be counted upon for the same simple welcome.”
― Kenneth Grahame, quote from The Wind in the Willows


“If God has shown us bad times ahead, it's enough for me that He knows about them. That's why He sometimes shows us things, you know - to tell us that this too is in His hands.”
― Corrie ten Boom, quote from The Hiding Place: The Triumphant True Story of Corrie Ten Boom


“There are no happy endings, endings are sad-so let's have a happy beginning and a happy middle.”
― Shel Silverstein, quote from A Light in the Attic


“Vulcan?" Leo demanded. "I don't even LIKE Star Trek!”
― Rick Riordan, quote from The Lost Hero


“Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything truly wrong, he was arrested.”
― Franz Kafka, quote from The Trial

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.
