“My hands shot up over my head, grabbing his ears. I yanked, bending forward.

North sailed over me. I gasped, stunned by what I just did.

"Holy shit," Nathan uttered.
"Kota," Gabriel whined. "Mommy and daddy are fighting again.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“You don't give warnings. If someone's close enough that you can't run, and they won't let you get away, you're done. Kick, swing, whatever you have to do."

"It sounds mean."

"Ugh," Nathan groaned behind us. (...) "Peanut, will you just listen? If someone isn't letting you run away, he's not a nice person. Beat the shit out of him.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“I may dump the whole class. Except you and Victor. " His light eyes caught mine. "Maybe even Victor.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“He sighed against my hair. "Be good. Listen to the boys. Try not to get them into any trouble." I scoffed. "I don't do that.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“Nathan made an evil-sounding cackle. “Brave words from a dead girl who forgot to load her gun.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission



“Kinda wished I had met you sooner,” he said quietly.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“Blood can make a bond stronger, but it doesn’t make the bond.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“He collected my hand to pull my finger out of his mouth. “Peanuts.” I laughed, breaking the shock I’d felt. “Bad?” “No,” he said, and he popped my finger into his mouth again. “I like it. Peanut tastes like peanuts.” “So I have to call you Honey, now?” “Yup,” he said, chewing.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“Kota chuckled. “Regret that we ran into each other yet?”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“A kiss. From Kota. And I wanted it.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission



“Nathan laughed, aiming the gun back at my face. “Come on, say mercy and I’ll let you up.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“He nodded, picking my hand up in his, bringing it to his mouth. His eyes locked on mine in the dark, and he put his lips to the back of my hand. He kissed the spot just behind my knuckles. He smoothed his thumb over the spot. He singled out a finger and pulled it in his mouth again and chewed. The rattling of my spine, shaking of my fingers and crazy spinning of my heart returned. Nathan kissed my hand. That meant something. Tingling radiated the area he kissed. A surge of worry swept over me as I realized I may have made a terrible mistake. Victor might be okay with us sleeping in the same bed, but what would he think if Nathan started kissing me? And why did I have the crazy urge to let him if he tried?”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“You’re the strongest little beautiful creature I’ve ever met.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“Hendricks is mean. My sister’s been skipping school since last week. Now I have to try to convince her she should go to school.”
Luke’s dark brown eyes softened. The blond locks were pulled back with a clip he’d stolen from me. “I know how you feel. I’ve got a chemistry test tomorrow.”

“Why can’t you sleep?” “I can’t stop watching you.” I blinked against his chest, squeezing my arms around his neck. “You watch me?” “When you sleep,” he said. He flattened his cheek against my forehead. “I watch you breathing. Unless you’re next to me where I can feel you, I end up awake all night watching, just to make sure. ” No”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission



“Nathan was shirtless. His muscular, tanned body left me breathless. He wore red sport shorts, and was barefoot. His reddish brown hair was wet, sticking up.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission


“Family is a choice. We help those who want our help. Don’t make yourself responsible for someone who won’t do the same for you. Blood can make a bond stronger, but it doesn’t make the bond.”
― C.L. Stone, quote from Forgiveness and Permission

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.
