“Zane was starting to piss him off again. Which was good, he supposed. It meant the urge to lick him all over was passing, at least.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“What, you didn’t pack your lunch?” Ty asked sarcastically as he
shifted around in the seat and wedged himself against the door. He kicked a
foot up and propped it on the console between the two front seats.
“Sure, in my SpongeBob SquarePants lunch box. I have the thermos,
too,” Morrison shot right back.
Zane kept his mouth shut, eyes moving between the two men, and
occasionally back to the driver, who was casually paying attention.
Ty stared at the kid and narrowed his eyes further. “Spongewhat?” he
asked flatly.
Zane didn’t even try to hold back the chuckle when Morrison looked
at Ty like he’d lost his mind.
“Spongewha … you’re yanking my chain, aren’t you?” Morrison
said. “Henny, he’s yanking my chain.”
“Yeah, well, that’s what you getting for waving it in his face,” the
driver answered reasonably.
“What the hell is a SpongeBob?” Ty asked Zane quietly in the

“If I’d been there, I might have been able to do something. But I wasn’t, and I lost them.”

“And if you’d been there,” Ty said softly, “I would have lost you.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Fuck,” Zane murmured, pulling Ty closer. “You’re worse than heroin.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Tease,” Ty accused softly.
“Do I have your attention now?” Zane drawled.
“You never lost it,” Ty responded before thinking better of it.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“I would have done anything. Anything to get back to you. I can’t say I’m sorry for that.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Ty Grady was a rude, insufferable, egotistical, stinking son of a bitch, and Zane was going to figure out how to tune him out. Otherwise, he just might give in to the pressure and kill the bastard, for the good of humanity.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Ty’s jeans were totally soaked and clung to him like a second skin, and Zane had to swallow hard. Jesus. “Good luck getting out of those gracefully,” he rasped with a slight smile, still leaning against the wall.

“Good luck thinking for the next hour,” Ty shot back with a smirk.

“Shit,” Zane muttered, turning into the spray to wash before leaning and shutting the water off.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Should I go back to my room tonight?” Ty asked out of the blue. “Or will we be able to work together and fuck each other senseless at the same time?”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Are you getting hysterical?” Ty asked eagerly. “Can I smack you?”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Zane looked down at him and yanked away the pillow and then all the covers. "Ty, I mean it. Do not go to sleep," he said firmly.

"Nap nazi," Ty accused miserably.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Zane didn’t reply immediately. After a short pause he spoke quietly.
“I’ll warn you, I’m going to be grouchy as my back really starts hurting.”
“And I’ll be on the lookout for that major change of attitude,” Ty
responded sarcastically.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“You’re easily distracted, aren’t you?” Ty deadpanned.
“Not really,” Zane said smoothly, dragging one hand down Ty’s
chest. “I’m still focused on you.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Listen up, ’cause I’m only gonna say this once,” Ty muttered as they walked to their gate. “I don’t talk when I fly. I sleep. And I don’t listen when I eat, understand? I don’t wanna be buddies. I don’t wanna chat,” he said with a sarcastic lilt to the word. “I don’t wanna know about your childhood or how your momma whipped you with a rubber glove or how much therapy you had to go through ’cause you flunked out of preschool. I don’t wanna hear about how you want to be Director someday or how many collars you got chasin’ those Internet freaks or how proud you are of your bowel movements. I don’t wanna go shopping at Barney’s with you, and I’m not gonna help you pick out your ties to match your socks and, I swear to God, if you get me shot, I’ll kill you.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“I didn’t care about anybody, even myself. And when I did….” Zane’s jaw clenched, and he kept his eyes focused on the window. Anything but on the man sitting across from him. “I let him walk away”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Zane’s good hand flashed out and smacked Ty upside the back of the
“Ow! What the hell?” Ty cried as he rubbed his head and huffed.
“You’re lucky I repress the Instakill for you,” he muttered.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Rolling his eyes, Zane got on the elevator once the door opened.
“You know, at first I was insulted by the way you treat me. Then I realized
it’s not personal; you treat everyone like shit. I find it doesn’t bother me all
too much anymore,” he said.
“Usually I only don’t bother people I want to see naked,” Ty told him
seriously as the elevator rose. “So stop it. You’re freaking me out.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Hey, give me my gun, would you?” Zane asked as he shifted, only to wince as the skin pulled.

“Why, you planning on shooting me in the ass when I turn around?” Ty asked sarcastically as he reached for the holster.

“Tempting, but you’d probably get off on it,” Zane said, holding out his hand.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“It was now or never. Zane took a slow, deep breath and ducked his chin, tilted his head sideways, and slid his lips firmly against Ty’s.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Breaking the rules is addictive, too.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“You’re just a big softy,” he taunted. “The last person said that to me got Viagra in his coffee next morning,” Ty warned seriously.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“You make me absolutely fucking crazy,” he said thickly. “Hate to break it to you, but I think you were there long before I came along,”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“I want you to find me, as soon as you’re free,”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Zane swallowed hard as he slid his hand to take Ty’s and lace their
fingers together. “Are you feeling this, too?” he asked, echoing what they’d
asked each other months ago, only to have it pushed aside. But not forgotten.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Not everything needs to be planned, Zane,” Ty answered with a tinge of frustration. “Not everything needs a why or how.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Evening,” Zane greeted quietly, voice still dark with sleep. He yawned and ran his hand through his hair. The short curls were riotous. “I’m hungry.” “Ugh,” Ty groaned sleepily. “God, you’re worse than a date,” he muttered. “I have to feed you, too?”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“So, Rule Number One, apparently, was that he wasn’t allowed to crack a smile during foreplay. “Got it”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“More bungalow-type setups. Rent by the week. Artsy places,” Zane
explained. “It’s different.”
“Do I look like an artsy type to you?” Ty asked, bristling on principle.
It didn’t even faze Zane. “You look like sex on legs to me. You’ll
blend in, no problem.”
― Madeleine Urban, quote from Cut & Run

“Make friends with fear, Lucien always said, because it will not go away, and it will destroy you if left uncontrolled.”
― John Grisham, quote from A Time to Kill

“Needing and getting don’t seem likely to match up any time soon... What needs doing is mine to do.”

“––Querida, no pienses en cosas tristes. Tengamos esperanzas en cosas mejores. Animémonos con la idea de que puedo sobrevivirte.”
― Jane Austen, quote from The Complete Novels

“Of so little weight are the greatest services to princes, when put into the balance with a refusal to gratify their passions.”
― Jonathan Swift, quote from Gulliver's Travels

“I have one outstanding trait in my character, which must strike anyone who knows me for any length of time, and that is my knowledge of myself. I can watch myself and my actions, just like an outsider. The Anne of every day I can face entirely without prejudice, without making excuses for her, and watch what's good and what's bad about her. This 'self-consciousness' haunts me, and every time I open my mouth I know as soon as I've spoken whether 'that ought to have been different' or 'that was right as it was.' There are so many things about myself that I condemn; I couldn't begin to name them all. I understand more and more how true Daddy's words were when he said: 'All children must look after their own upbringing.' Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.”
― Anne Frank, quote from The Diary of a Young Girl

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.
