“Think of Forrest Gump. For him, magic just kept happening because he was in total allowance of everything. His life was magic because he didn’t limit the possibilities of what could show up for him by judging anything. You could say he wasn’t smart enough to judge. Maybe he was smart enough NOT to.”
“If you choose to be undefined, no one else may have the same points of view as you. They may not even be able to find you, let alone the ballpark where you are playing or the universe in which you are living.”
“What if everything that is wrong with you, or about you, isn’t actually wrong? What if it’s actually a potency you have that doesn’t match this reality, but no one has ever been capable of showing you that?”
“It’s Your Choice, NOT Your Upbringing That Creates Your Reality….”
“Shoot for the moon! If we miss and hit the stars, that’s not half-bad.”
“What if the limitations in your life and in your body, every single one of them, were exactly the same way? What if they looked really solid, and that’s the only way you’ve been able to see them until now?”
“It is weird being different. But what if it were fun? What if it weren’t wrongness but simply a difference?
What if the Earth let you come here because of that difference?
What if it made you come here because of that difference?”
“Oneness is the inclusion of everyone and everything with absolutely no judgment.”
“If you could figure out your life by thinking, if you could mentally figure out how to be you, wouldn’t you have done so already? If thinking yourself out of the box actually worked—wouldn’t you be generating a totally different reality by now? I mean, really, haven’t you been trying to think your way out of the box forever?”
“There is a greater war, Uhtred. Not the fight between Saxon and Dane, but between God and the devil, between good and evil! We are part of it!”
“Well, I'm going to church. But i've got to tell you that it's full of hypocrites.
My friend, if you keep your eyes on Christians, you will be disappointed every day of your life. Your hope is to keep your eyes on Christ.”
“No rational response was possible. Her irrationality made it so. The terrible power, he thought, of illogic.”
“O tempo seria precioso, daí em diante. continuaria a passar despercebido, é claro, como sempre, mas Harvey estava determinado a não desperdiçá-lo com suspiros e queixumes. Preencheria cada momentos com as estações que encontrara no coração: esperança, coo pássaros, nos ramos da Primavera; felicidade como um Sol quente de Verão; magia, coo as inesperadas neblinas de Outono. E o melhor de tudo: o amor - amor suficiente para durar mil Natais.”
“As Jules kissed my cheeks he whispered, “She has nothing on you, of course, Kates. It’s just that you’re so very…taken.”
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.
