“You do not want a war.

You have known violence, you have suffered loss, but you have seen nothing of war. War is not just the business of death; it is the anti-thesis of life. Hope, tortured and flayed, reason, dismembered, grinning at its limbs in its lap. Decency, raped to death...

You will be a murderer and more.”
― Joss Whedon, quote from Fray

“I'm not a leader now. I'm a whole damn army.”
― Joss Whedon, quote from Fray

“Nobody ever called me any OH MY GOD you mean that guy that one that set himself on FIRE!"

"As I said, fanatics."

"But he set himself on fire!"

"Centuries of useless, obsessive waiting. Makes a human-"


"Maybe he was cold.”
― Joss Whedon, quote from Fray

“They'll all be waiting. Waiting for me to fall.

So, come on , guys. I'm just one girl. No big hero, no protector of justice, not even a bona fide one-hundred-percent slayer. So what are you waiting for?

Take me on.

Hurt my world.

I dare you.”
― Joss Whedon, quote from Fray

“So, what's first?"

"Dexterity. I throw things at you. You avoid them."

"You're not a complicated person, are you? Let's do it."

"You hib my face wib a whole girder!"

"You were meant to duck."

"Can we skip degsteriby?”
― Joss Whedon, quote from Fray

“They come. Sooner than I'd thought, more than I'd even begun to fear. They come looking for death.

And Death is psyched to see 'em.”
― Joss Whedon, quote from Fray

“I'm pissed like this rutting beast can't conceive - I'm a lifetime of pissed, of strong, of muscle built over bruise, I'm slick with power and feel the fight as it changes...

As it flows...

...Everything into place, perfect, and I finally do what I was born to do.

I slay.”
― Joss Whedon, quote from Fray

“Just because you have a past doesn't mean you can't have a future.”
― Meredith Russo, quote from If I Was Your Girl

“Minerva drew unusual attention to herself on her very first evening, when she was revealed to be a Hatstall. After five and a half minutes, the Sorting Hat, which had been vacillating between the houses of Ravenclaw and Gryffindor, placed Minerva in the latter. (In later years, this circumstance was a subject of gentle humour between Minerva and her colleague Filius Flitwick, over whom the Sorting Hat suffered the same confusion, but reached the opposite conclusion. The two Heads of House were amused to think that they might, but for those crucial moments in their youths, have exchanged positions).”
― J.K. Rowling, quote from Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

“I suppose Galileo felt that the discovery of the fact that the laws of nature are not unchanged under change of scale was as important as his laws of motion, because they are both put together in the tome on Two New Sciences.”
― Richard Feynman, quote from The Character of Physical Law

“Now he understood what it was to be a man: that it was to be weak as well as strong, to be foolish sometimes and wise sometimes, to know love as well as to kill. And he had learned that there were other paths for him, other gods who called in the deep places of the earth, in the lap of wavelets on the shore, in the breath of the wind. He had learned that there were other kinds of courage. He knew, with deep certainty, that the islands held a new path for him. He need only move forward and find it.”
― Juliet Marillier, quote from Wolfskin

“love has a most unfortunate effect on the brain,”
― Elizabeth Peters, quote from Crocodile on the Sandbank

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.
