“But in high school the business of irrevocable choices began. Doors slipped shut with a faint locking click that was only heared clearly in the dreams of later years.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“We'll just have to get along. That's what people do, you know? They just get along. And try to help each other.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“...it was more like bleeding than crying.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“It would perhaps not be amiss to point out that he had always tried to be a good dog. He had tried to do all the things his MAN and his WOMAN, and most of all his BOY, had asked or expected of him. He would have died for them, if that had been required. He had never wanted to kill anybody. He had been struck by something, possibly destiny, or fate, or only a degenerative nerve disease called rabies. Free will was not a factor.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“All the logic in the world could not blunt the pain. Logic could not blunt her terrible sense of personal failure. Only time would do those things, and time would do an imperfect job.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo

“There is no bad time for good news.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“Maybe he was as mad as he said he was, but she could see only a species of miserable fright. Suddenly, like the thud of a boxing glove on her mouth, she saw how close to the edge of everything he was. The agency was tottering, that was bad enough, and now, on top of that, like a grisly dessert following a putrid main course, his marriage was tottering too. She felt a rush of warmth for him, for this man she had sometimes hated and had, for the last three hours at least, feared. A kind of epiphany filled her. Most of all, she hoped he would always think he had been as mad as hell, and not . . . not the way his face said he felt.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“The two of them had discovered it was all right to open the closets...as long as you didn't poke too far back in them. Because things might still be lurking there, ready to bite.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“surely they had passed the worst. All the luck had been against them, but sooner or later even the worst luck changes.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“If loyalty was toilet paper... we'd be hard-pressed to wipe our asses, old buddy.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“He tilted back in the decaying lawn chair, almost went over on his back, and used up some more of his screwdriver. The screwdriver was in a glass he had gotten free from a McDonald's restaurant. There was some sort of purple animal on the glass. Something called a Grimace. Gary ate a lot of his meals at the Castle Rock McDonald's, where you could still get a cheap hamburger. Hamburgers were good. But as for the Grimace... and Mayor McCheese... and Monsieur Ronald Fucking McDonald... Gary Pervier didn't give a shit for any of them.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“Abrakadabra, und alles verwandelt sich in einen großen Haufen Scheiße.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“Todo el espectro del mundo auditivo era suyo. Oía las campanadas del cielo y los ásperos gritos que surgían del infierno. En su locura, oía lo real y lo irreal.”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“Charity had discovered there were things you didn't want to tell. Shame wasn't the reason. Sometimes it was just better-kinder- to keep up a front”
― Stephen King, quote from Cujo


“All the luck had been against them, but sooner or later even the worst luck changes”

hacerlo.”

“WORLD IN CATASTROPHE: KILLZONE EXPERIMENT DEPARTMENT”
― James Dashner, quote from The Maze Runner Series


“They were very poor, and their seven children incommoded them greatly, because not one of them was able to earn his bread. That which gave them yet more uneasiness was that the youngest was of a very puny constitution, and scarce ever spoke a word, which made them take that for stupidity which was a sign of good sense. He was very little, and when born no bigger than one's thumb, which made him be called Little Thumb.”
― Andrew Lang, quote from The Blue Fairy Book


“The artistic temperament is particularly unhelpful if it is just that, with no end product.”
― Nick Hornby, quote from Juliet, Naked

for they are your blood, and when you are unsure,or times are difficult, they will be the ones to stand by your side.”
― Julia Quinn, quote from To Sir Phillip, With Love

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.
