“I don’t believe I asked for a glass of your unimportant opinion.”
― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn


“What bothers me is that health professionals give fancy names to conditions or learning difficulties that will irritate the patients; like OCD not being in alphabetical order, putting an ‘S’ in ‘lisp,’ and making dyslexia a word that no one can spell. It’s just mean.”
― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn

― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn

― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn

Dogs are loyal.”

― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn

“I don’t like rhetorical questions.”

― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn

― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn


“Why are you still smiling? You’re supposed to fear my mighty wrath.”

Harper sniffed at the sentinel. “I don’t believe I asked for a glass of your unimportant opinion.”

The guy just smiled. “Knox, can I bite her?”

“No.” If anyone would take a bite of that ivory skin, it would be Knox. His demon was in full agreement with that.”
― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn


“You strike me as someone who prefers it when people are upfront.”
It was true that Harper had no time or patience for mind games. “So?”
Knox leaned forward, wanting her to see the resolve in his expression. “I want you.”
And Harper nearly choked on her steak. When she’d finally swallowed it down with the help of her wine, she shrugged. “Thanks for sharing.”
“You want me.” She cast him a glare, but didn’t deny it, which soothed his demon slightly. “But you’re going to fight aren’t you?”
Every step of the way.”
― Suzanne Wright, quote from Burn

Popular quotes

“His love for me seemed to overflow my limits by its flood of wealth and service. But my necessity was more for giving than foe receiving; for love is a vagabond, who can make his flowers bloom in the wayside dust, better than in the crystal jars kept in the drawing-room.”
― Rabindranath Tagore, quote from The Home and the World


“I wonder if Luke would take a hit of tomato ketchup for me. I might ask him later. Just casually.”
― Sophie Kinsella, quote from Mini Shopaholic


“Maybe you haven't noticed, but everyone shares the same brain around here. It's like a mass cult. They've all drunk the Kool-Aid.”

“Ash stripped some of the papery purple bark off his yew stick. "And, you see, it's difficult because what I've always thought about humans-what I was always raised to think…"
"I know what you've always thought," Mary-Lynnette said sharply. Thinking, vermin.
But," Ash continued doggedly, "the thing is-and I know this is going to sound strange-that I seem to love you sort of desperately.”
― L.J. Smith, quote from Daughters of Darkness

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 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.
