“My name is Echo. I dream of cats with stars in their fur. ”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Bluestar blinked. "There are cats who would argue that there should never have been a fifth Clan in the forest at all. Why are there four oaks at Fourtrees, if not to stand for the four Clans?"
Firestar gazed up at the massive oak trees, then back at Bluestar. Fury pure as a lighting flash rushed through his body. "Are you mouse-brained?" he snarled. "Are you telling me SkyClan had to leave because there weren't enough trees?”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“I will always be here. We will walk the skies together forever.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“StarClan may go where they please, they have betrayed SkyClan. From this day on, I will have nothing more to do with our warrior ancestors. StarClan allowed the Twolegs to destroy our home. They look down on us now, and let the moon go on shining while you drive us out. They said there would always be five Clans in the forest, but they lied. SkyClan will never look to the stars again.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest

Firestar gazed up at the massive oak trees, then back at Bluestar. Fury pure as a lightning flash rushed through his body. "Are you mouse-brained?" he snarled. "Are you telling me that SkyClan had to leave because there weren't enough trees?"
A look of shock and dismay filled Bluestar's eyes.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest



“I am sorry I am the only cat left of what was once a noble Clan. I will try to preserve the way of the warrior until my last breath. But I fear that when I die it will die with me, and the memory of SkyClan will be lost forever.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Clovertail blocked the entrance and wouldn’t let any of them in,” Petal added. Firestar rested his tail on Clovertail’s shoulder. “Well done.” The she-cat rose painfully to her paws, revealing the marks of rat bites on her chest and shoulders. “You should go see Echosong,” Petalnose told her. “I can look after the kits.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Your Clan is safe for now. But there will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Spirits of cats who have gone before,” Moony mewed, “I am sorry I am the only cat left of what was once a noble Clan. I will try to preserve the way of the warrior until my last breath. But I fear that when I die it will die with me, and the memory of SkyClan will be lost forever.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Raucous quacking sounded in Firestar’s ear. He jumped up, staring around wildly until he spotted a duck in the water beside the reed bed.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest

― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest

― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Sandstorm sighed. “I was afraid you were going to say that.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Then he spotted Willowpelt diving from the top of a rock to streak across the ground and shove Sootpaw out of the way with outstretched forepaws. The badger landed heavily on her back; her shriek was cut off with a sickening crunch as the huge creature snapped her neck. It scooped up her limp body with one paw and tossed it into the clearing. Sootpaw”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“The tabby rogue bounded alongside the river until he reached the fallen tree that Sky had used to cross a few days before. Leading Firestar over to the far bank, Scratch started to climb another trail that led up the cliff face on the opposite side. Firestar panted after him, wishing he had the rogue’s powerful haunches. Scratch was a true SkyClan cat!”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest



“As Firestar drew nearer he recognized the cream-and-brown tabby she-cat he had surprised in the scrubland near the Twolegplace.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“I’m glad I’m here with you.” Firestar touched his nose to her ear. “I’m glad you’re here, too. I don’t think I could do this without you.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“As he looked across to the opposite bank a cold claw sank into his heart. Sandstorm was gone.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Sandstorm’s sweet scent all around him.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws. Firestar”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest



“And yet the only reason he had found the courage to lead the forest Clans into battle against BloodClan was because he had believed his warrior ancestors when they told him there had always been four Clans in the forest. The fifth Clan was StarClan, forever protecting the four below. Had StarClan lied? Bluestar”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“He and Sandstorm hunted and carried their fresh-kill back to the cave. But when he reached the entrance, Firestar stopped in surprise. The hollow in the cave floor was empty. Sky had gone.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Firestar saw a small, light brown tabby she-cat shouldering her way through the warriors until she reached the gray-and-white cat. “Let me speak to StarClan,” she begged. “They might know of a place for us.” The cat rounded on her. “No, Fawnstep!” he spat. “Our warrior ancestors have failed us. As far as we’re concerned, StarClan no longer exist.” He”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Even the kits were affected, boldly playing at rat attacks during the day, but scurrying back to the nursery at any unexpected noise. But”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest


“Couldn’t StarClan do anything to help you?” he asked. “StarClan!” The SkyClan cat spat out the word, lashing his tail. “StarClan betrayed us. They allowed the other Clans to chase us out like rogues. When we left the forest, I vowed that I would never look to the stars again.” “A Clan without warrior ancestors?” Firestar was bewildered.”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest



“Your Clan is safe for now. But there will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws.” Firestar stared at the old warrior. “I don’t understand. Why are you telling me this?” There”
― Erin Hunter, quote from Firestar's Quest

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.
