“No sane person could witness what they saw every day in the field, or carry out the acts of violence they were tasked with, and not come away affected.”
“You weren't meant to fight this alone. On our own, we are nothing.”
“He couldn't do it alone. That was the point, wasn't it? Bring him to the end of himself.”
“Haven sighed. Then shrugged. "He's the best man I know, but he believes himself to be the worst. He sees himself as some...monster." She narrowed her eyes, watching Cole, thinking how best to help him. "I don't know how to change that.”
“Because he listened to you. When everything in him told him to fight, he listened." Mr. Tzaddik's kind brown eyes met hers. "Loving a warrior is not easy. I pray our Lord Jesus will strengthen you for the journey”
“Do not let your confidence or love be easily removed or frightened by the rage of a warrior”
“Alec isn't worried. He isn't bothered by his actions or who he hurts." She came closer, her long blond hair curling around her neck and shoulder. "And worst of all, he is content with his actions. You?" She smiled around an airy laugh. "You're running from yourself. From anyone who sees good in you. Because you're struggling with it, with the belief that you're the same, that you've done bad things. That guilt, that shame? That should be your compass, Cole. But I don't need a compass to know you're not the same as Alec. And I wish my belief in you was enough to convince you. The actions of man speak to what's in his heart." She pressed a hand to his chest, right over the four-valved organ pumping blood through his veins. And it seemed in a hurry right now. "Read what's there, Cole.”
“Loving a warrior is not easy. I pray our Lord Jesus will strengthen you for the journey.”
“I have a report here from McKenna that says you and King were like brothers."
"Not like." Tox spoke evenly. "We were. Soldiers, the men I fight with are my family. We eat, sleep, and breathe the same air, chaos, bloodshed, and war.”
“What concerns me," she said, "is that he's treading a fine line between fighting evil and becoming it.”
“One of Tox's favorite quotes by Mark Twain was, "Everyone is a moon and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody”
“She might not be as hard-hitting as Tzivia, but she had a depth of sincerity and gentleness that he appreciated. Needed. She cared about people. In the war of life, she was the medic and he the guy on the front lines fighting.”
“He might not like that she'd dated the guy one, but he didn't want him dead. Most of the time.”
“The one who had the power to take me apart was also the only one with the power to put me back together again.”
“While he was alive, he was impossible to ignore; once he had gone, he was impossible to imitate. When”
“You don‟t need that on your conscience.”
“His death I could handle. It's his life that I don‟t need weighing on me.”
“Loki sees her and he is like “Oh man that chick looks like she is about to get some TREASURE I want to RUIN THAT ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR HER because I am Loki and that is what I DO.”
“Love doesn't happen because you find the right bricks and cement to build it. Love really is...pure magic. It comes from" - she gestured toward the heavens - "out there. And if falls like pixie dust where it wants. And when id does...you can fly."
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.
