“The house only isn't enough, you see. It has to have
the setting. That's just as important. It's like a ruby or an emerald. A beautiful stone is only a beautiful stone. It doesn't lead you anywhere further. It doesn't mean anything, it has no form or significance until it has its setting. And the setting has to have a beautiful jewel to be worthy of it. I take the setting, you see, out of the landscape, where it exists only in its own right. It has no meaning until there is my house sitting proudly like a jewel within its grasp.”
― Agatha Christie, quote from Endless Night

Volevamo soddisfare qualunque ambizione. Volevamo avere tutto, non volevamo negarci niente.”

“في الفترة المتبقية لي على قيد الحياة، أنا مَلك . يمكنني فعل أي شيء أريده. أحيانا ما يبدو الأمر مثيرا. إلا أنه كما ترى لا يوجد الكثير من الإغراء لأنه لا يوجد شيء معين مذهل أو متمرد أرغب القيام به.”
― Agatha Christie, quote from Endless Night


“من حين لآخر كنت اسمع داخل عقلي تلك النغمة العذبة التي اعتادت إيلي عزفها على الجيتارالخاص بها.
وقد كنت أذكر أصابعها تتحرك على أوتاره..
في كل مساء ينقضي أو ينقشع صباح.
يولد بعض الناس للأفراح.
وقد فكرت " إن هذا ينطبق عليك. لقد ولدت لبهجة ممتعة، وقد شعرت بالبهجة الممتعة هناك في فدان الغجر، إلا أنها فقط لم تستمر طويلا، وقد انتهت الآن ، وعدت إلى مكان قد لا يوجد به الكثير من المتعة ، حيث قد لا تكونين سعيدة. ولكنك في بينك هنا على أية حال, وبين أفراد قومك".”
― Agatha Christie, quote from Endless Night

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.
