“(Carter): "I've been protecting you since I joined the Mauricio family. You were why I joined them in the first place."
(Emma): "You did all that for me?"
(Carter): "I would declare war for you.”
“You're mine, Emma. You always have been. I won't let you go.”
“You did all of that for me?
I would declare war for you”
“You don't trust anyone, no one except Carter. Go to Carter. He'll take care of everything. He'll take care of you, Ems. I promise.”
“This, This is what I wanted that night. I couldn't contain myself and I had to taste you, but tonight is the night I really have you. You're mine, Emma. You always have been.”
“I was going to die. It was a matter of time.”
“No matter what path Carter would take us, I’d go with him.”
“I've been protecting you since I joined the Mauricio family. You were why I joined them in the first place.”
“I knew it in my gut, like an anchor thrown into the ocean. The deeper it sunk, the more I knew. I was in love”
“Shit. He was perfect. And he was a killer.”
“I saved her life!” Now I needed someone to save mine.”
“I’ve been protecting you since I joined the Mauricio family. You were why I joined them in the first place.” What?”
“You did all of that for me?” “I would declare war for you.” He”
“A lot of what we experience as strength comes from knowing what to do with weakness.”
“The lonely reality of the truth-that the most important person in your life suddenly ceased to exist. Which on a bad day meant maybe she had never existed at all. And on a good day, there was the other fear. That even if you were a hundred percent sure she had been there, maybe you were the only one who cared or remembered.”
“But it's a poor church that cares only for what happens to a soul after it leaves this life."
“It occurred to him that strength was quite different from toughness and that being vulnerable wasn't quite the same as being weak.”
“In a low voice, I asked, "How are you doing?"
Luc shrugged. "You know, I'm doing my thing like a chicken wing."
My brow arched.
Daemon sounded like he choked. "Did you seriously just say that?”
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.
