“I said his name softly to myself. Lucky. Lucian Radcliffe. His name must come from the Latin lucianus, meaning light, and that's what he was, golden and bright.
I didn't care what Jack's name meant. Probably Jackass.”
― Marta Acosta, quote from Dark Companion


“You know, I've always hated those stories about princes and princesses with some extraordinary ability, special because they're born special.'
'Like me?' He smiled wickedly, making me laugh a little.
'I didn't see how those were happy stories, because life has given princes and princesses enough unearned advantages. I'd rather believe that anyone can accomplish remarkable things when she really tries. Maybe her accomplishments will never be recognized, but simply loving and caring for someone else, that's miraculous to me.”
― Marta Acosta, quote from Dark Companion

"No you just released one.”

“Jane, this young man is Jacob, my oldest son. It’s no secret that a
headmistress’s biggest challenge is her family. Jacob, say hello to Jane.”
“Hello to Jane,” he parroted, pulling out the pockets of his shorts in a silly
curtsey.
I couldn’t decide if it was the dumbest thing I’d ever seen, or the funniest,
so I stared back at him.”
― Marta Acosta, quote from Dark Companion


“Lily, the girl who’d talked back to the jock, said, “I want to get as far away
from my parents as possible. We’re like potassium and water.”
The other kids laughed and I said, “Huh?”
“If potassium comes into contact with water, it instantly combusts,” Lily
said slowly so if she was talking to a child.”
― Marta Acosta, quote from Dark Companion


“And I know what you are. You’re a heartless, soulless waste of human life. When I’m older, I’ll make sure that your license is revoked.”
― Marta Acosta, quote from Dark Companion

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.
