“Let me ask you a question Alex. What do you think is the greatest evil on this plant today?"
"Is that including, or not including you?”
“Go to Venice. Find Scorpia. And you will find your destiny.”
“I have a couple of questions," he said.
"Do, please, go ahead."
"My first one is for Yassen Gregorovich." He turned to the Russian. "Why are you working for this lunatic?"
"I sometimes think that I was richer when I was eight years old than most people will be in their lifetime!"
"Do we have to listen to this?" Alex asked.”
“We have an hour before we have to leave," Cray said. "So I thought I might tell you a little about myself. I thought it might pass the time."
"I'm not really all that interested," Alex said.”
“Come join me for some tea so we can discuss how your giong to die”
“You're trying to tell me that everything you've done is for a good cause. You think that all this killing is worth it because of the results. I'm not sure I agree. Lots of people work for charity; lots of people want to change the world. But they don't have to behave like you.”
“It was the garden of a man who wanted to rule the world but couldn’t, and so had cut the world down to his own size.”
“if Cray leaves a kitchen knife lying around, I’m going to shove it somewhere painful…”
“He didn’t care that his voice and hands shook as he brought her closer. He was thoroughly unashamed of the depth of his feeling for this woman.”
“A man who trusts everyone is a fool and a man who trusts no one is a fool. We are all fools if we live long enough.”
“The "rain" was nothing more than the emergency sprinkler system gone wild. All this trouble could be easily explained: the sprinklers malfunctioning. Maleficent had done her job well.”
“Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
No amount of money,
Can stop me from loving you,
Try as they may,
Try as they might,
I’m not letting go,
Without a fight,
Some say it’s wicked,
Some say it’s sinful,
Some it’s wrong,
And just wrong,
I don’t know much,
But when push comes to shove,
I definitely don’t believe,
There’s such thing wrong as love.”
“Love is a fine cushion to rest upon, but only hate can make you a better person.”
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.
