“Silence fell between us. This was a common occurrence whenever we’re alone. When you’re comfortable with someone, you don’t need to always fill the void with noise. I liked it when we would just be.”
“This entire time I've been thinking about where my home was. At first it was California, then Wisconsin. But in truth, home isn't necessarily where you sleep at night. It's where you feel like yourself. Where you're most comfortable. Where you don't have to pretend, where you can just be you.”
“On a scale from one to ten, how much of a pain was I after my injury?
And please be honest.
Do you think I would hold back on you?
On a scale from one to ten? Thirteen.
Now I have a question for you.
On a scale from one to ten, how annoyed were you that I was going to the dance with someone else?
“So, as I was saying, guys and girls can be friends.
And what's better than falling in love with your best friend?
“But in truth, home isn't necessarily where you sleep at night. It's where you feel like yourself. Where you're most comfortable. Where you don't have to pretend, where you can be just you.”
“I'll never understand why everybody puts so much emphasis on January first. There are three hundred and sixty-four other days in the year that you can make a change. Or make a fresh start.”
“If I only had one goal, it would be to make her laugh loudly every day.”
“sometimes silence speaks much louder than words possibly could.”
“What time do you need to get ready for college boy?” I looked at my watch. “I probably should leave soon. Do you think it’s strange that he’s taking me?”
Levi shook his head. “I would find it odd if anybody didn’t want to take you anywhere you wanted to go.”
“I am not complete without you.”
“We had both made mistakes and been admittedly stubborn, but we need to move on with, not away from, each other.”
“Friends lie to make each other feel better.”
“So, as I was saying, guys and girls can be friends.'
'And what is better than falling in love with your best friend?'
'You always have to get the last word in, don't you?'
'You know it.'
'Yes, I do.'
'I love you.'
'I love you, too.'
'And there you are again, having to get the last word in.'
'But I don't think you mind.'
'Not at all.'
“I remembered reading somewhere that if you smile at something, it automatically makes you happier.”
“We'd hit rock bottom, but this is what is found there. The truth.”
“So does this mean we're officially young adults now?" I asked her.
"I don't know. I've already been reading those kinds of books for a few years."
"Uh-oh, does this mean I'm still a baby? I really love EVERYONE POOPS.”
“Secrets only ended up hurting other people.”
“We all knew that you'd eventually end up with Macallan. I guess I should be offended, but maybe I read too many romance novels to no want to cheer for the two best friends.”
“It was pretty cool to have someone around here who didn't like the same things as everybody else.”
“But that's the thing with the what -if game- you really never know the answer to the question. And maybe it's better that way. Because underneath the surface what-ifs are much worse ones.”
“Some memories were harder to forget than others. Especially the painful ones.”
“Because sometimes silence speaks much louder than words possibly could.”
“This entire time I'd been thinking about where my home was. At first it was California, then Wisconsin. But in truth, home isn't necessarily where you sleep at night.
It's where you feel like yourself.
Where you're most comfortable.
Where you don't have to pretend, where you can just be you.
I had finally reached that place because Macallan is home to me.”
“I would’ve blown away every last runner that time. Because at the end of this finish line wasn’t a trophy — it was Macallan.”
“But that's the thing with the -what if game- you really never know the answer to the question. And maybe it's better that way. Because underneath the surface what-ifs are much worse ones.”
“Sin embargo, es que tu hogar no tiene porque ser un lugar donde duermes por las noches.
Tu hogar esta donde sientes que puedes ser tu mismo.
Donde estas a gusto.
Donde no tienes que fingir, donde te muestras tal como eres.
Por fin había llegado a aquel lugar, porque Macallan es mi hogar.”
“One play does not a team or victory make.”
“But would a high school romance really be worth sacrificing our friendship? No. We were better off friends.”
“But that's the thing with the what-if game-- you really can never know the answer to the question. And maybe it's better that way.”
“-En una escala del uno al diez, ¿hasta que punto te molestaba que fuera al baile con otro?
“Tu oublies que tout le monde n'a pas ta force, ni ton courage..."
"On ne nait pas courageux, on le devient".”
“Fear is the mother of all emotion. Before love, hate, spite, grief, rage, and all the rest, there was fear, and fear gave birth to them all, and ask every combat soldier knows there are as many incarnations and species of fear as the Eskimo language has words for snow.”
“There’s no remaking reality... Just take it as it comes. Hold your ground and take it as it comes. There’s no other way.”
“Empecé a escribir cuando tenia ocho años,entonces no sabia que me había encadenado de por vida a un noble pero implacable amo... Cuando Dios le entrega a uno un don, también le da a uno un látigo. Y el látigo es únicamente para autoflagelarse”.”
“El amor debe ser como un beso al atardecer..., como el último beso, el auténtico, el verdadero, al término de las historias románticas de la colección Arlequín... ¡El amor debe ser como un aroma de rosas a la hr del crepúsculo!”
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.
