“You are speaking of my future lover. Be more respectful.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“The sweetest part of being a couple is sharing your life with someone else.
But my life, evidently, had not been good enough to share.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“I don't like having feelings," Eric said coldly, and he left.
That was a tough exit line to top.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“Eric was holding my hands, and I was digging my nails into him like we were doing something else. He won't mind, I though, as I realized I'd drawn blood. And sure enough, he didn't. "Let go," he advised me, and I loosened my grip on his hands. "No, not of me," he said smiling. "You can hold on to me as long as you want.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“They say there's no harm in daydreaming, but there is.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead



“Let go," he advised me, and I loosened my grip on his hands. "No, not of me," he said, smiling. "You can hold on to me as long as you want. Let go of the pain, Sookie. Let go. You need to drift away."
It was the first time I had relinquished my will to someone else. As I looked at him, it became easy, and I retreated from the suffering and uncertainty of this strange place.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“My eyes flew open, and I pushed back against rock-hard shoulders. I let out a little squeak of horror.

"It's me," said a familiar voice.

..."Eric, what are you doing here?"

"Snuggling.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“And by golly, love sure was a battlefield. Benatar was right about that.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“They found the corpse in the closet of Alcide's apartment, and they hatched a plan to hide his remains." Eric sounded like that had been kind of cute of us.

"My Sookie hid a corpse?"

"I don't think you can be too sure about that possessive pronoun."

"Where did you learn that term, Northman?"

"I took 'English as a Second Language' at a community college in the seventies.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“It was time to pull my moral socks up and behave myself.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead



“She killed Lorena in a fight?" Eric's grin grew even broader. He was as proud as if he'd heard his firstborn reciting Shakespeare.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“I don't like having feelings," _Eric Northman”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“I have always been very fond of you." He'd always wanted to have sex with me. "Plus, I want to fuck you.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“How grateful are you?" he whispered, his mouth hovering over mine. His eyes were very alert now, and his gaze was boring into mine.

"That kind of ruins it, when you say something like that," I said, trying to keep my voice gentle. "You shouldn't want me to have sex with you just because I owe you."

"I don't really care why you have sex with me, as long as you do it," he said, equally gently.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“You take I-55 south, and you'll run into I-20. Or you could take..."

I was about to be overloaded with information. "Oh that sounds just perfect. Let me do just that, or I'll lose track."

Sure, glad I could help."

Oh, you surely did."

We beamed at each other, just two nice women. I had to fight an impulse to say "I have a tortured vampire in my trunk," out of sheer giddiness.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead



“Better to be screwed physically than financially.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“Sometimes, instead of going down the road less taken, you just charge down the beaten path.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“Bill said, "She is mine."

I wondered if my hands would move. They would. I raised both of them, making an unmistakable one-fingered gesture. Eric laughed, and Bill said "Sookie!" in shocked admonishment.

"I think that Sookie is telling us she belongs to herself," Eric said softly.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“Alcide: "It's on my right butt cheek. It's shaped like a rabbit."
Sookie: "I love bunnies!”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“Men sometimes have to leave their ladies alone, and ladies are not responsible for the bad manners of fools.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead



“When you've been really beaten, you realize that you are just an envelope of skin, an easily penetrated envelope that holds together a lot of fluids and some rigid structures, which in their turn can simply be broken and invaded.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“Apparently, once you got used to regular and spectacular sex, your body had a mind of its own (so to speak) when it was deprived of that recreation; to say nothing of missing the hugging and cuddling part.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“You never told me all this before," I said, by way of explanation. "You all have divided
up America into kingdoms, is that right?”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“What I think I'll do is I'll do my best to yank Debbie out of me by the roots. And then I'll turn up on your doorstep, one day when you least expect it, and I'll hope by then you will have given up on your vampire.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“You can hold on to me for as long as you want. Let go of the pain, Sookie".
- Eric, Club dead.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead



“Finally, I drew in a long breath. It was noisy and painful and just heaven.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“You might have been paid back enough to suit you" I said, "but I don't know if you've been paid back enough to suit me.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“The sweetest part of being a couple was sharing your life with someone else.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead


“Okay," I said. "I'd hoped to avoid this, but... Bill, I rescind your invitation into my house." Bill began walking backward to the door, a helpless look on his face, and my brush still in his hand. Eric grinned at him triumphantly.
"Eric," I said, and his smile faded. "I rescind your invitation into my house." And backward he went, out my door and off my porch. The door slammed shut behind (or maybe in front of?) them.”
― Charlaine Harris, quote from Club Dead

“How Nathan doesn't know I fancy him is beyond me. I may as well walk around with a sandwich board, saying 'I heart Nathan', ringing a bell”
― Samantha Towle, quote from First Bitten


“... you cow,' Estelle added. 'I heard that.' 'Give the woman the geriatric audiology medal,' Estelle said. 'I heard that, too', her mother said, from the other side of the door.”
― Fiona Wood, quote from Six Impossible Things


“For whatever reason, it seems like we’re against love. Everyone. People think love equates to weakness, or gullibility, or an unwillingness to deal with reality, so they try to
ruin it, the social scientists and the admen, with studies and lingerie shows and boxes of candy. They try to invalidate it, dirty it up, but they can’t, because people in love know
the truth. They know love is good and pure and really the most beautiful thing in the world. They know love is greater than anything, greater even than God. At first, I didn’t
believe it, but I do now. You have made me realize it. Being away from you has been the hardest thing I have ever done. I am shaking and sweating. I am going into withdrawal. I need you. You are my withdrawal. You are my blood.
I want to protect you from all of this. When it’s all over, I want to run away with you and never come back. I want to be buried in the ground with you. It’s the only way we can keep this pure and beautiful, I’m afraid. We have to stay away from this whole life. We have to be normal. We have to get married and move to Berkeley. Our love can’t
survive like this, no matter how hard we try. I’m quitting the band. I’m coming home. I need you.”
― Pete Wentz, quote from Gray


“But," say you, "what will become of me if . . . ?" This is indeed a temptation of the enemy. Why should you be so ingenious in tormenting yourself beforehand about something which perhaps will never happen? Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof. Uneasy forebodings do us much harm; why do you so readily give way to them? We make our own troubles, and what do we gain by it? but lose, instead, so much both for time and eternity. When we are obsessed in spite of ourselves by these worrying revisions let us be faithful in making a continual sacrifice of them to the sovereign Master. I conjure you to do this, as in this way you will induce God to deal favourably with you and to help you in every way. You will acquire a treasure of virtue and merit for Heaven, and a submission and abandonment which will enable you to make more progress in the ways of God than any other practice of piety. It is, possibly, with this view that God permits all these troublesome and trying imaginations. Profit by them then, and God will bless you. By your submission to His good pleasure you will make greater progress than you could by hearing beautiful sermons, or reading pious books.”
― quote from Abandonment to Divine Providence: The Classic Text with a Spiritual Commentary


“I know of witches who whistle at different pitches, calling things that don't have names.”
― Helen Oyeyemi, quote from White is for Witching

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.
