“Did we have sex?" he asked directly.
For about two minutes, this might actually be fun. "Eric," I said, "we had sex in every position I could imagine, and some I couldn’t. We had sex in every room in my house, and we had sex outdoors. You told me it was the best you’d ever had." (At the time he couldn’t recall all the sex he’d ever had. But he’d paid me a compliment.) "Too bad you can’t remember it," I concluded with a modest smile.
Eric looked like I’d hit him in the forehead with a mallet. For all of thirty seconds his reaction was completely gratifying.”
“My bullshit meter is reading that as 'false'.”
“Eric moved the broom experimentally and made an attempt to sweep the glass into the pan while it lay in the middle of the floor. Of course, the pan slid away. Eric scowled.
I'd finally found something Eric did poorly.”
“Food that walked and talked, that was us. McPeople.”
“Should I just bite you, and end it all?", he whispered. "I would never have to think about you again. Thinking about you is an annoying habit and one I want to be rid of.”
“Fiction just makes it all more interesting. Truth is so boring.”
“You were so sweet when you didn't know who you were.”
“You just don't want a vampire pissed off at you.”
“i hate not knowing what i did." _Eric”
“i hate her skinny thighs and her elitist attitude. i hope she's a dreadful bitch who makes you so miserable that you howl when you remember me.”
“Lies will come back to bite you in the butt”
“They say when one door shuts, another one opens. But they haven’t been living at my house. Most of the doors I open seem to have something scary crouched behind them, anyway.”
“There's not much I dislike more than being addressed as "Hey you" and being poked with a finger.”
“In the world I lived in, the world of human people, there were ties and debts and consequences and good deeds. That was what bound people to society; maybe that was what constituted society. And I tried to live in my little niche in it the best way I could.”
“I held on to my better nature by my fingernails but I held on.”
“Only a group lack of imagination could account for people not wondering what went on in the dark around them.”
“Well in two months, it'd be sunbathing time. That made me smile. I enjoyed lying in the sun in a little bikini, timing myself carefully so I didn't burn. I loved the smell of coconut oil. And I don't want to hear any lectures about how bad tanning is for you. That's my vice. Everybody gets one.”
“we had sex in every position i could imagine, and some i couldn't. we had sex in every room in my house, and we had sex outdoors. you told me it was the best you'd ever had.”
“I gave myself a mental shake. Snapping out of a slump, that was what today was all about.”
“Why bother to change, if you can't change into a wolf?”
“The full moon symbol on my calendar no longer seemed to be a period marking the end of something, but just another way of counting time.”
“There are times to think and times to lie fallow”
“My bullshit metre is reading that as false'.”
“Tearing down is always easier than building up,”
“Ar trebui sa se puna o pancarta pe care sa crie: "Loc de parcare pentru cei care comit atacuri nocturne asupra lui Sookie".”
“What pretty nail polish,' Eric said, smiling. [...] Trust Eric to pick out the one thing that was new and different about me.”
“To heck with him, I thought righteously. Him and the horse he rode in on.”
“You have my heart, my soul, my life. I'm an empty shell without you.”
“Forget the accent, I’m a fucking American citizen, you arseholes—I know my rights. If you’re going to start talking about getting violent, get a fucking cop or lawyer in here.”
“You are Doogie Howser, M.D., and you will remain officially so for four years, and unofficially so, to some extent, for the rest of your natural life.”
“To conform is to lose your soul”
“No, Ashok. Love is not a tap. It flows and flows like blood from a wound, and you can die of it.”
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.
