Popular quotes

“If it crosses your mind that water running through hundreds of miles of open ditch in a desert will evaporate and end up full of concentrated salts and muck, then let me just tell you, that kind of negative thinking will never get you elected to public office in the state of Arizona. When this giant new tap turned on, developers drew up plans to roll pink stucco subdivisions across the desert in all directions. The rest of us were supposed to rejoice as the new flow rushed into our pipes, even as the city warned us this water was kind of special. They said it was okay to drink but don't put it in an aquarium because it would kill the fish.

Drink it we did, then, filled our coffee makers too, and mixed our children's juice concentrate with fluid that would gag a guppy. Oh, America the Beautiful, where are our standards? ”
― Barbara Kingsolver, quote from Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life


“Yeah, it was sick and twisted, but
that’s reality, right? Escape is impossible, so why not
embrace it?”
― Kody Keplinger, quote from The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend


“So the big, bad, and able-to-mind-control angel thinks you’re his. As
in ‘I don’t share my woman.”
― Nalini Singh, quote from Angels' Blood


“God intentionally allows you to go through painful experiences to equip you for ministry to others.”
― Rick Warren, quote from The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?


“She looked like a statue of pride hanging its head.”
― Lawrence Durrell, quote from The Alexandria Quartet

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.
