“Nemo Me Impugn Lacessit—No One Assails Me with Impunity. Or the alternative version—Do Not Fuck with Us or We Will Hurt You”
“A man without pleasure is a man without any idea what life is about”
“Tell me something, Noah. Which is more important: freedom or happiness?'
What was this, a game? But Nijinsky wasn't smiling.
'You can't be happy unless your free,' Noah said.”
“We're fighting for unhappiness?" Noah asked skeptically. "It sounds a bit crazy when you put it that way."
Nijinsky laughed, delighted. "Oh, it is." Then, serious again, he said, "We fight for the right to be what we choose,to feel what we choose. Even if what we choose seems crazy to others."
"If it's all the same to you, I'll fight for revenge," Sadie said.
Nijinsky's eyes glittered. "Oh, yes. That's fine with me.”
“Fantasies don't have to make any sense," he snapped. "That's what makes them fantasies. They aren't meant to be logical, they're meant to keep you from losing your mind or panicking or wanting to kill yourself.”
“Sadie was like that, one of those people untouched by trend or fashion, comfortable building her own world out of what she liked, from tunes and styles and reads that could be so ancient they were cobwebbed, up through to things so new they barley existed yet.”
“The clips hurt. The presence of a chainsaw was terrifying. And Noah did not want to hear about insane Nazi poets.”
“I need you both to trust me," Vincent said. "I don't mean that I would like you to trust me. I mean that I need you to trust me.”
“No, for God's sake, I'm not bloody suicidal. And I'm not proposing, either. Forget I said anything.”
“I didn't betray you. I was used. I was set up.”
“You either have faith or fear, not both. Things, they think, generate fear. The more things you have, the more you have to fear. Eventually you are living your life for things.”
“I do not want him to die. No elf does. However, if every waking moment is a torment to him, then won’t it be better for him to seek release?” Neither”
“What Falls?” barked a grizzle-faced, squint-eyed man whose age looked to be somewhere between fifty and a hundred and ten. “Cambridge Falls,” Kate said. “It’s across the lake.” “Not this lake. I’d know. Sailed it all my life.” “I told you,” Emma grumbled. “Crummy Miss Crumley’s trying to get rid of us.” “Come on,” Kate said. “It’s almost time for the boat.” “Yeah. The boat to nowhere.” The”
“Standing up for yourself doesn't always involve verbal confrontation. Sometimes it's about not wasting energy on people who are negative.”

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.
