“Even the things that look broken beyond repair have a chance at being whole again. It just depends how much you want to rebuild it.”
― Natasha Preston, quote from Broken Silence

― Natasha Preston, quote from Broken Silence

― Natasha Preston, quote from Broken Silence

“Everyone says that getting over somebody ‘just takes time’ and that one day it will stop hurting and the door will open for you to move on. We are also told that love is eternal; something extraordinary that will stay with you forever. However, after a break up, suddenly love becomes something you should get over once a little time had passed. The contradiction is immense. Right now, I was somewhere in the middle.”
― Natasha Preston, quote from Broken Silence

“The night Cole and I made love was the best night of my life. It was the night when I had felt so loved and safe and normal. How could that possibly be wrong? Wiping”
― Natasha Preston, quote from Broken Silence


“Miles is coming,” I blurted out. Her face dropped, and I leant forward slightly, ready to take off if necessary. “Miles is what?” Mum asked, sitting down. I cringed. “Coming here. Now.” She stayed perfectly calm, but she was probably planning on how she could kill me and dispose of my body. “Mum?” “Thank you,” she whispered. Thank you? What? “Huh?” She smiled and replied, “I need him here.” Admitting that was hard for her, I could tell. She didn’t trust men anymore, so it wasn’t easy for her to let one into our lives. “So, you admit it? You like Miles?” “Don’t get too carried away, young lady.” She grinned sheepishly, which told me everything. The doorbell rang, and Mum jumped. “Wow, he has good timing,” I muttered. Mum”

Popular quotes

“The existence of well-to-do little neutral countries is a pointer to what global war is really all about,”
― Paul Scott, quote from The Day of the Scorpion


“A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
We bid be quiet when we hear it cry;
But were we burdened with light weight of pain,
As much or more we should ourselves complain.”
― William Shakespeare, quote from The Comedy of Errors


“Like the children in fairy stories who have seen their parents make pacts with terrifying strangers, who have discovered that our fears are based on nothing but the truth, but who come back fresh from marvellous escapes and take up their knives and forks, with humility and good manners, prepared to live happily ever after -- like them, dazed and powerful with secrets, I never said a word”
― Alice Munro, quote from Selected Stories


“Look. I'm your expert consultant for a rather pathetic monetary wage, and under that agreement I have the option of selecting a technical assistant. He's mine."

She blew out a breath, paced to the window. Paced back. "Not just yours. It makes him mine, too. I don't know how to deal with a teenaged type person."

"Ah, well, I'd say you'd deal with him as you deal with everyone else. You order him around, and if he argues or doesn't jump quickly enough you freeze his blood with one of those vicious looks you're so good at and verbally abuse him. It always works so well for you."

"You think so?"

"There, see." He cupped her chin. "There it is now. I can actually feel my blood running cold.”
― J.D. Robb, quote from Purity in Death


“How did you learn to stop crying? (Leta)
I nailed my heart shut and learned to stop caring about anyone except me. They can’t make you cry when you don’t give a shit about them or their opinions. You can only be hurt by the ones you love. (Aiden)”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from Upon the Midnight Clear

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 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.
