“That’s Carlos?” Phineas lowered his sword and whistled under his breath. “Hello, kitty.”
“We have some nachos left.” Carlos motioned to a plate on the table. “But I don’t suppose you’re interested.”
“I already ate.” Ian sat at the end of the table.
“Anyone we know?” Carlos’s amber eyes twinkled. “Ouch.” He glared at Toni.”
“Toni, I barely know you, but I canna see anything remotely unworthy about you. any man would be blessed and honored to receive yer love." (Ian MacPhie)”
“I want to be loved, honestly and truly loved, for who I am. And I want to love a woman with all my heart for all my life. I want to ache for her mind, for her body, for her companionship.”
“Her gaze met his. "What do you want more than anything?"
Right now, he felt like he could gaze into her green eyes for a century or two. They were amazing, the way they flared with anger, twinkled with humor, or softened with compassion. "I want to be loved, honestly and truly loved, for who I am. And I want to love a woman with all my heart for all my life. I want to ache for her mind, for her body, for her companionship."
Her eyes widened. "Oh." (Toni & Ian)”
“Ian stepped closer to her, gritting his teeth. “We’re no’ babies. We’re seasoned warriors.”
She affected a big shudder ” Ooh, I’m scared”
“Yer skirt invites a man’s attention. I’ve seen handkerchiefs that were bigger.”
She swung her handbag over her shoulder. “At least I wear underwear under my skirt.”
“I hope they’re nice since everyone is sure to see them.”
“I doona want to be loved because I’m Undead. No more than ye would want to be rejected for being mortal.”
“She couldn’t run away from him. She’d be running from her own heart.”
“What’s the deal with the secret Santa thing?”
“If I told you, it wouldna be a secret.”
“I’m making a list. And checking it twice.”
“Have ye been naughty or nice?”
“It might be fun to get a little naughty.”
“I thought I saw a puddy tat.”
He grinned. “You did, you did.”
“Good grief, he’d fallen into his death sleep with a hard-on. Was it possible for a stiff to be that stiff?”
“Her kung fu is that powerful.”
“He sagged to his knees. He ached all over. It wasn't just that his brain was writing cheques that his body couldn't cash. It had gone beyond that. Now his feet were borrowing money that his legs hadn't got, and his back muscles were looking for loose change under the sofa cushions.”
“INTERVIEWER: You probably mean stalkers? DR. PILLMAN: I’m not familiar with the term. INTERVIEWER: That’s what the residents of Harmont call the desperate young men who, despite the grave risks, sneak into the Zone and smuggle out whatever they find. It’s quite the new career.”
“Because a sound tree doesn't have bad roots, Amara. No enterprise of greatness
begins with treachery, with lying to the people who trust and love you”
“Never choose the card a man wants you to. Mat should have realized that. It was one of the oldest cons in creation.”
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.
