“She's the fire in my veins, the breath in my lungs, and the glue trying to hold each of my scars together.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


“Haunt me,
my little ghost,
Posses me
Live inside me,
And scare away my sins
Until there's nothing left.
But You.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


“You reminded me what it feels like to love. You made me fall in love and, fuck, I don't want to lose that. I don't want to lose you.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


“I think when love sneaks up on you, when it grabs onto you when you least expect it, maybe that's more of a sign that it's real. That it's meant to be and nothing could stop the two of you from falling for each other.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


“It's like she has her heart in her hand and it's broken. She's holding it out and showing me all the little pieces. Or maybe it's my heart.”

― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


“I can't get you out of me. Your smile's in my head and your voice in my ear.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


“I don't know what it is about you that makes me want you so fucking bad.'
They may not be the words a girl longs to hear, but I cherish them. Because they're real and real is better than a pretty lie.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade

― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade



“A veces necesitamos sangrar para sanar.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


“it’s hard giving out love to people who shove it back in your face. That’s not what love’s supposed to be about. No, it’s not perfect and people get hurt, but it’s a give and take. And it should be comfort, not pain.”
― Nyrae Dawn, quote from Façade


About the author

Popular quotes

“I had lived with Aunt Cordelia too long to enjoy being called “Julie, baby” or “Honeybun” or “Sugar.” They were foolish in the first place and rather revoltingly sticky for someone who was strictly a high protein girl.”
― Irene Hunt, quote from Up a Road Slowly


“What he wanted was Megan wanting him... but not needing him. Not vulnerable to him. Sure as help not trying to leave him over and over again... and simply failing.”
― Mira Lyn Kelly, quote from Waking Up Married


“I've been protecting you since I joined the Mauricio family. You were why I joined them in the first place.”
― Tijan, quote from Carter Reed


“There is a saying that to understand is to forgive, but that is an error, so Papa used to say. You must forgive in order to understand. Until you forgive, you defend yourself against the possibility of understanding.”
― Marilynne Robinson, quote from Home


“If you were that sort of girl, then…” Merik lifted a hand to her jaw—tentative at first, then more confident when she didn’t pull away. “Then I would start here and move down your throat.” His fingers whispered over her neck, to her collarbone—and Merik was pleased by how punctuated her breaths grew. How much her lips trembled.”
― Susan Dennard, quote from Truthwitch

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 2023, 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.
