“He's evil, and the only thing that stops evil is death.”
“You can blackmail me into going on dates with you and you can have your friends kidnap me, but you can't tell me why you do it?" she asked him in disbelief.
"Look, you'll find out eventually and you won't like it, I know. I try hard to get you to feel something towards me so that when you find out, you won't fight me," he whispered in her ear.”
“Some slight awareness in the back of her mind, beneath the pain, told her she was free.”
“...too many people in such a limited place only served to fuel her anxiety.”
“He was far scarier than any ghost could be. He was real, and he was a monster.”
“Killing is for those with a sick mind.”
“He had never actually said what he hunted, only that he enjoyed it.”
“She would have to work alone, and she was fine with that.”
“Luna was glad Amy wasn’t one to pry. She knew that if she wanted to talk about it, she would. More people needed to be like her.”
“Your friend will pay deeply for what he’s done here tonight,” Chance snarled once he wiped off most of the blood. “You can tell him to run as far and as fast as he can, I’ll get him. Just let him know that once this is all over, it’s just gonna be you and me and a world full of corpses.”
“Tự sâu thẳm, chàng là người tốt, và ta yêu chàng vì thế. Nhưng nếu chàng không tốt thì ta vẫn yêu chàng. Dù chàng có khiến ta đau đớn, có lợi dụng ta, ta vẫn cứ yêu chàng. Ta biết điều đó. Đó là vấn đề giới tính, ta nghĩ vậy.
Chàng khỏe mạnh và đẹp đẽ. Ta yêu chàng vì điều đó. Ta ngưỡng mộ, ta tự hào về chàng. Nhưng ta vẫn yêu chàng dù chàng không có những phẩm chất này. Nếu chàng xấu xí, ta vẫn yêu chàng. Nếu chàng tàn phế, ta vẫn yêu chàng. Ta sẽ làm việc cho chàng, sẽ cầu nguyện cho chàng, sẽ luôn ở bên chàng cho đến ngày ta chết.
Phải, ta nghĩ ta yêu chàng chỉ vì chàng là CỦA TA và chàng là GIỐNG ĐỰC. Ta tin rằng không có lý do nào khác. Và đó là điều ta nghĩ khi nói rằng: dạng tình yêu này không phải là thứ được tạo ra từ lý trí hay những con số khô khan. Nó chỉ đơn giản là ĐẾN. Không ai biết tự khi nào, và không ai giải thích được vì sao. Mà thực ra có cần chăng phải giải thích?”
“She had learned to pay attention to the variations in Rokan's smiles. There was the sideways half-smile when he found something amusing; the slow, contented smile that appeared only rarely these days; and the wide, dazzling, unrestrained smile she had so far seen only twice, when he first came for her in the Mistwood and when they watched the hawk soar against the sky. And then there was this one, the reason for her watchfulness: the impish grin that meant he wanted to do something he knew was stupid and was going to do it anyhow.”
“I've learned to write the truth. But to do that, I had to figure out what the truth was-and I had to realize that the truth isn't always the same for everyone. I had to realize that my truth may not be the same as your truth.”
“There was a lot of swearing and ineffective bitch-slapping,”
“I need to stop getting into situations where all my options are potentially bad.”
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.
