“If I had one last breath left, I would use it to tell you how much I love you, because I do, and I always will.”
“- You’re mine now; I hope you realize that, I said to her.
- I was yours from the moment you asked me what my name was, she smiled.”
“I noticed her smile when I called her beautiful. It made my heart do something weird which I can’t explain because I’ve never felt anything like it before.”
“You don’t understand; this girl’s different. She’s beautiful, kind, giving, sweet, strong, stubborn, and quite a smart ass.”
Connor Black's thoughts on Ellery Lane”
“I’m pregnant with your child, and our child wants rocky road ice cream. What do you want me to do, starve the baby to death?”
“Why are you doing this?" I asked as I turned and looked at her.
"Because I can lay here and no one will know I'm crying," she said, looking up at the sky.
I felt a pain in my heart when she said that. She was out here, in the pouring rain, to mask the tears that plagued her face.”
“Pain is a part of loving someone, and it’s something that just doesn’t go away.”
“I love you, Ellery. Not only for whom you are, but for the person I’ve become because of you. This is my forever to you.”
“I met a girl, Doc.”
He let out a light laugh. “You meet girls every day, Connor; this is nothing new.”
“Ellery is a beautiful name, and she’s a beautiful woman,” I replied as I stared out the window.
Connor Black's thoughts on Ellery Lane.”
“It sounds like the right woman just walked into your life, Connor. Just don’t screw it up. Become
friends with her. This is the first time you’ve opened up since you’ve started coming to see me. If you
start falling for Ellery, the first thing you must do is tell her about your past and the women you see.
There can be no secrets, Connor.”
“Live a little, Connor, life is too short.”
“Hey, Connor! Sorry I must have butt-dialed you. So, do you want to tell me how it felt being on my ass?” she laughed.
Ellery Black's BFF and her jokes.”
“I can’t get her out of my mind. She’s all I keep thinking about both day and night. I haven’t been
able to concentrate on anything else. I’ve cancelled all my dates because I only want to see Ellery.”
Connor Black's thought on Ellery Lane.”
“What the hell, Connor? You’re not even hard,” she snapped.
I couldn’t believe this was happening as this has never happened to me before. I sighed and took a
step back as I ran my hands through my hair and shook my head.
“I don’t know what the problem is. I’ve been under a lot of stress at work.”
“Life ought to be more like a play; the entrances and exits would be a lot cleaner.”
“I snorted. ‘For a great sultan who is lord and ruler of all that he surveys, his English is lamentably poor. He can’t even spell England properly.’
Still holding the note, Mr Ascham looked up at me. ‘Is that so? Tell me, Bess, do you speak his language? Any Arabic or Turkish-Arabic?’
‘You know that I do not.’
‘Then however lamentable his English may be, he still speaks your language while you cannot speak his. To me, this gives him a considerable advantage over you. Always pause before you criticise, and never unduly criticise one who has made an effort at something you yourself have not even attempted.”
“Champion Ven knelt in the ruins of the village. Sifting through the rubble, he lifted out a broken doll, its pink dress streaked with dirt and its pottery face cracked.
There was always a broken doll.
Why did there always have to be a damn doll?”
“There’s not a lot you can control, you know. Where you’re born. Who your family is. What people want from you, and what you are, underneath it all. When you have so little say in it all, I think it’s important to exercise a measure of control when given the opportunity.” She smiled, ducking her head. “So I blow things up.”
“İnsanlar birbirlerini tanımanın ne kadar güç olduğunu bildikleri için bu zahmetli işe teşebbüs etmektense, körler gibi rastgele dolaşmayı ve ancak çarpıştıkça birbirlerinin mevcudiyetinden haberdar olmayı tercih ediyorlar.”
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.
