“I'll love you until the day after forever.”
“When I first met you, that's what I remember. I looked up at the sky and thought, I'm going to love this person because even the sky looks different.”
“Maybe it needed to be broken. Sometimes things have to break before you can fix them.”
What is JUST in a world
you've ripped in two
as if there could be
a half for me
a half for you
what is FAIR when
there is nothing
left to share
what is YOURS when
your pain is mine to bear
this sad math is mine
this mad path is mine
subtract they say
back to the desk
and i reply
this is why
"Remember the Twinkie on the bus? The one I gave you in second grade, the day we met?"
"The one you found on the floor and gave me without telling me? Nice."
He grinned and shot the ball. "It never really fell on the floor. I made that part up.”
“The mortal world is in a state of Beautiful Chaos and destruction, which will ultimately lead to an exquisite end.”
“Do you believe in love after last sight?”
“I wanted to find a place to hide from all of it, where the nightmares and the rivers and reality couldn't find me. For me, that place was always inside a book.”
“no light no dark no you no me
know light know dark know you know me”
“I needed to touch her, like I needed to breathe.”
“Ethan: I love you, I whispered in her ear.
She held my face in her hands and leaned back so she could look at me.
Lena: I don't think I could ever love anything the way I love you.”
“It was crazy how a hearse and a pair of sneakers could cheer a guy up.”
“In the end, the Wheel crushes us all.”
“I wish I could print up a sign and tape it on my forehead. I OFFICIALLY DO NOT WANT TO KISS ETHAN WATE. NOW PLEASE LET ME BE FRIENDS WITH HIM.”
“Sometimes everyone does the right thing and there's still a mess left to clean up. Someone has to take responsibility for it.”
“Because saving the people you love isn't stupid. It isn't even a choice”
“The lonely reality of the truth-that the most important person in your life suddenly ceased to exist. Which on a bad day meant maybe she had never existed at all. And on a good day, there was the other fear. That even if you were a hundred percent sure she had been there, maybe you were the only one who cared or remembered.”
“Funny thing is, until I met you all I wanted to do was to get as far away from here as I could. Kind of ironic, isn't it? Can't get much farther away than where I"m going, and now I'd give anything to stay.”
“You couldn't unburn the books. You could only buy new ones.”
“I will love you until the day after forever.”
“Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be.”
“...you cannot punish a wet child for the rain.”
“I don’t think Kitchen makes this. What’s it called again?"
"Jell-O Surprise." Link grinned.
"What’s the surprise?" Ridley examined the red gelatin more closely.
"What they put in it.”
“Are you kidding? I'm supposed to put my books in this filthy tin coffin?”
“Because when every day is the End of Days, after a while they feel pretty much like every other day, even though you know that's crazy. And nothing is the same.”
“She closed her eyes, and I closed mine, and even though we weren't holding hands, it felt like we were.
Because what we had, we knew.”
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.’ ”
“it’s better to face madness with a plan than to sit still and let it take you in pieces.”
“And telling a story, I suppose, is like winding a skein of spun yarn- you sometimes lose track of the beginning.”
“About this business of being a gentleman: I paid so heavily for the fourteen years of my gentleman’s education that I feel entitled, now and then, to get some sort of return.”
“I never really have been, and I’m certain now that I never will be, and you know why? Because it’s impossible for me to love anyone like I love you—and I really tried with Orion.”
“There was a heavy, dark pause of vast significance.
Which Jim broke by flashing his hands and belting out, “Booga-wooga!”
At least Eddie laughed. Adrian flipped Jim the bird and headed to the fridge for another beer.”
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.
