“Can you enter a house uninvited?"
"That would be rude.”
“Kidnapped by a vampire, death by a squid. How tragic.”
“Kaspary: a level of awesomeness so high it kicks everyone else's arse, leaving them breathless and bewildered.”
“P.S. Murders kill for pleasure.
Vampires kill to survive.”
“Even if that were so, how could I be happy as a vampire? There is no chance of me actually liking the idea of living forever. It's hopeless!'
Kasper faced straight ahead, glancing in his side mirror.He spoke softly, something like caring in his voice.'You don't know that, Girly! One day you might just find something worth living an eternity for.”
“He sighed, his hands tangling themselves in my already-knotted hair. “Violet, don’t ever leave me. Whatever happens; however things get, just don’t go. Please.”
“Never thought I'd see this moment, my voice said, full of the same breathlessness I felt as I looked up at him.
Neither did I,I replied.
'I give up.'
I took a deep breath.'I give in to you.' ”
“I knew what I had left behind. The question was: What was I going to find ahead?”
“One day you might just find something worth living an eternity for”
“Handsome and brilliantly rich; their fatal flaw is murder.”
“My mind told me he most have had a weapon; my eyes saw none.”
“You know how it is. Love's flame flickers and dies, reason returns to her throne, and you aren't nearly as ready to hop about and jump through hoops as in the first pristine glow of the divine passion.”
“There was a beauty here bigger than the hurtling beauty of basketball, a beauty refined from country pastures, a game of solitariness, of waiting, waiting for the pitcher to complete his gaze toward first base and throw his lightning, a game whose very taste, of spit and dust and grass and sweat and leather and sun, was America.”
“And if they ask you someday what it was I most wanted to say, please tell them, if you would, it was this:
There. That's it. I've said it. Now can I go?”
“I'll talk to Mortimer and see what he thinks, and then get back to you tomorrow. In the meantime, you should really get to sleep and get those shared dreams going."
Cale grimaced at the suggestion, and reminded him, "She has a splitting headache, Bricker."
"I thought that was a married woman's complaint?" Bricker responded quickly, and then laughed at his own joke as he hung up.”
“You’re pretty smart for a Fed.”
“I missed a bunch of questions on the entrance exam on purpose so that I could

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.
