“I'm going to fuck you hard on the hood of this car, in the pouring rain. And. You. Are. Not. Going. To. Forget. It.”
“I wanted to belong to someone, and for someone to belong to me.”
“There was something so comforting in the certainty that someone knew about your biggest flaws and was still willing to stick around.”
“Didn't you know I was out here, just waiting for a friend like you?"
"Of course I didn't know. I'd have been dancing on top of every bar in town, instead of studying, if I'd known that."
"Tell me not to kiss you," he said, when his lips were a breath away from mine.
"Don't kiss me," I told him, my voice a breathless rasp.
"Mean it," he said, crowding me into the corner of the pool.
He tilted my chin up with his finger.
"I can't," I gasped.
The words had barely left my lips before he was kissing me.”
“Danika, sweetheart?" he rasped. "Yes, Tristan?" "I'm done being sweet, if you don't mind. I need to fuck you really hard now, if that's okay.”
“You can't call me boo."
"Because you're not a rapper, and I'm not your shorty.”
“I want you to let go. i want you to submit. I want to make you lose your mind. I want you to be so far gone that the only word left in your vocabulary is my name.”
“It's ironic that I'd use you for my wingman, when I want to fuck you more than any of the women here.”
“I want you so badly that I'd do just about anything to have you," he said roughly. "The only thing I won't do though, is risk losing you. Can you promise me that if we do this, I won't lose you?”
“He smiled his best smile, the one that ruined me for every other smile in the world.”
“You feel so good sweetheart. I swear nothing's ever felt better in my whole fucking life.”
“An exquisite flower for my exquisite girl.”
“That hurts me deep in my soul, Danika. I wouldn't do that to you. I'd make sure you came, first and last. I'd go down on you every time, if that's what you like. I'd lick-”
“THE FRIENDS DON'T LIST
Because I like you too much to sleep with you”
“Was his tongue in your mouth, boo?
"Does this mean you're going to have a baby?"
"Did you just give each other cooties?
"Do you have to get married now?”
“We're going to do this nice and slow. All I want from you is your surrender. Beyond that, you don't have to think about a thing. Understand?”
“If you can't be civil to my girlfriend you can fucking walk away.”
“I had the crucial and inescapable realization that I wanted him. Not just in bed. Not just as a friend, but all of him. Every piece of the puzzle. I'd never wanted anything so badly in my life.”
“I’ll never forget that for as long as I live; the way you were my strength, when I was too weak to even stand.”
“Well, boo, how does bacon sound?”
“Bacon sounds great, but you can’t call me boo.”
“Because you’re not a rapper, and I’m not your shorty.”
“Don't start a war you can't win, my friend. In the battle of teases, I would whip your slutty ass, you sex fiend.”
“Sweetheart, listen carefully, when I say that I don’t need anybody but you, what I mean is that I never have. I need you. I’ve never needed anyone or anything the way I need you. I need you in a way that would break me if I lost you. Being with you makes every part of my life better. Every second I get with you is the best second of my life. I’m not good at expressing myself, not like you are, but I treasure this thing between us. Don’t think I don’t.”
“I don’t have a word for this, because I’ve never felt this before. But I do love you. I just wish there was a way to explain to you that love is just the start of it, because it’s turned into so much more for me.”
“I thought that I’d found my new favorite hobby—watching Tristan cook anything at all.
“Bev has this really great frilly pink apron,” I told him. “What would I have to do to get you to wear
it while you cook for me?”
“You don’t even want to know, boo,” he said.
That effectively shut me up again.”
“You’re fooling yourself if you think I don’t have those feelings for you, Tristan. I’ve fallen in love with you.”
“You’re so perfect,” I murmured to him as we came up for air. “I can’t believe you’re all mine.”
His laugh was rough and breathless. “I’m as far from perfect as a person can get, but I am all yours.”
“I would love this man to the end of my days. I’d fallen too deep. Middle of the Pacific deep, with no land in sight. There was no going back. My heart was his forever.”
“Lucky for you, I have swim trunks packed,” he said after he’d washed the bite down with a long drink of his water.“Oh, darn. I was hoping you’d have to borrow a bikini from me. That would have made my day.”
“He startled me by tipping my chin up wish his finger.
I blinked at him.
“You look different.”
“What do you mean?”
He hummed low in his throat, and I about lost it. It was the sexiest noise I’d ever heard. “Fuck, Danika, I know that look. Were you taking your own version of a ‘shower’ in there?”
“He nuzzled his face into my ear. “I’m so sorry, sweetheart. I’m so sorry I hurt you. I’d take it all back if I could, but I can’t. I will try to make it up to you, though, okay? Please, just give the chance. Please.”
“Since ever the world was spinning
And till the world shall end
You've your man in the beginning
Or you have him in the end,
But to have him from start to finish
And neither nor borrow nor lend
Is what all of the girls are wanting
And none of the gods can send”
“God has provided enough evidence in this life to convince anyone willing to believe, yet he has also left some ambiguity so as not to compel the unwilling.”
“Should a black woman carrying her "madam's" white baby travel in the "whites only" or the "nonwhites" section of the train? Or would a Japanese visitor who used a "whites only" public toilet be breaking the law? Or what was a bus conductor to do when he ordered a brown-skinned passanger to get off a whites-only bus and the passanger refused, insisting that he was a white man with a deep suntan?”

“Atheism is not a philosophy; it is not even a view of the world; it is simply an admission of the obvious. In fact, 'atheism' is a term that should not even exist. No one needs to identify himself as a 'non-astrologer' or a 'non-alchemist.' We do not have words for people who doubt that Elvis is still alive or that aliens have traversed the galaxy only to molest ranchers and cattle. Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make in the presence of unjustified religious beliefs.”
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.
