“If we don't learn the art of patience and trust, we will end up assuming that we are a failure.”
“When I go back to God after my life, I want to make sure I go back with absolutely no talent and tell him, "I used up everything you gave me.”
“There is never a problem without a solution. It's just that you don't see it because fear, insecurity and lack of passion make you blind.”
“May be that is how life is. Clouds, whether bright or dark, they just keep passing. The duration they stay with us depends on whether the circumstance around us is breezy, windy or stormy.”
“There is only one 'best'. The others are just 'good' & 'better'. But 'the best' changes with time & hence, 'the best' is always yet to come.”
“The people who are scared of ghosts are the ones who discuss most about them.”

“Всякий видит, что красивое лицо красиво, а до какой именно степени оно красиво, как это разберешь, пока ранг не определен дипломом? Верочку в галлерее или в последних рядах кресел, конечно, не замечали; но когда она явилась в ложе 2-го яруса, на нее было наведено очень много биноклей; а сколько похвал ей слышал Сторешников, когда, проводив ее, отправился в фойэ!”
“...righteousness [is] always more believable when combined with dreariness.”
“shrink." (D&C 19:18.) It was about there that I wrote these words: "Teach the people repentance hurts." You must never believe the lie that there is no pain from sin. You can be forgiven; the Atonement is real. But President Kimball taught that "if a person hasn't suffered, he hasn't repented." (The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, ed. Edward L.

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.
