“Where does a thought go when it’s forgotten?”

“Yesterday you loved me. Today you’ll love me again.”
― quote from Anterograde Tomorrow

“You don't deserve to see daisies wither.”
― quote from Anterograde Tomorrow

Your name is Do Kyungsoo. You have short-term memory loss, antesomething amnesia, so you won’t remember what happened last night. But let me help you out.

Last night I put my head on this pillow and my arms around your waist. My name’s Kim Jongin. I call you hyung. Yesterday you loved me. Today you’ll love me again.

This is where you undressed me.

This is where I undressed you.

And here I pushed you up against the wall and kissed you really hard (approximately, it was kind of dark) and we thought we should have sex.

Here you sat, dangling your legs. I put my palm on your kneecap and you bent forward and kissed me first.

We talked about ballet. You hummed a tune and my fingers did an arabresque here, grand jeté onto the floor, fouetté en tourant and then sissonne on the back of your hand. Pas de valse fast up your arm and you smiled.

I leaned on this and read your green sticky notes while you went around cleaning up invisible messes. It came to me that all the green looks like grass, and grass is boring without daisies. So I hope you like yellow?

And here’s Kim Jongin. Say hello to me?

― quote from Anterograde Tomorrow

“It’s funny because my life is full of this:

you think you’re escaping, until you run into yourself.

Twenty-three years later it turns out that the longest way round is the shortest way home,

and I’ve been running in circles since the get-go.

What a riot, huh?”
― quote from Anterograde Tomorrow

“lights he was pleased to see that everything was in order.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rooster Bar

“With the proper amount of squint.”
― C.S. Richardson, quote from The End of the Alphabet

“My homeland is about as ugly as a place gets. There's nothing in south Georgia, people will tell you, except straight, lonely roads, one-horse towns, sprawling farms, and tracts of planted pines. It’s flat, monotonous, used-up, hotter than hell in summer and cold enough in winter that orange trees won’t grow. No mountains, no canyons, no rocky streams, no waterfalls. The rivers are muddy, wide and flat, like somebody’s feet. The coastal plain lacks the stark grace of the desert or the umber panache of the pampas”
― Janisse Ray, quote from Ecology of a Cracker Childhood

“...und der ganze Erdball würde durch eine Fackel aus Ekstase und Freiheit in Flammen gesetzt.”
― H.P. Lovecraft, quote from Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos

“I'm not involved in shame. Morals are learned in childhood, and I didn't have any such holiday called childhood.”
― Gregory Maguire, quote from A Lion Among Men

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.
