“You're a stubborn, ill-trained horse." she said
The horse snorted and walked towards the North Road of his own volition.
"Hey!" Karigan pulled back on the reins. "Whoa. Who do you think is in charge here?”
“I swear...I'll deliver the message for the love of my country.”
“When you aren’t committed to the outcome of the game, there is no way you can win.”
“I rather fancy the story of Laurelyn the Moondreamer and how she built a castle of silver moonbeams, don’t you? Silver-mind it was called.”
“Indeed, no one should see too much of their own history or future.”
“The creature prodded The Horse’s belly with an antenna. When he didn’t respond, it emitted a clicking sound, perhaps of approval. From The Horse, it sidled to the webbing, and moved up the line from the doe to the raccoon, then to Karigan. Eye stalks wavered as it inspected its prey. It poked her ribs with an antenna, and softly whistled to itself. Karigan jerked away and slapped her free hand at the antenna. “Get away!” But already the creature’s attention was on the spherical objects. It nudged one or two with its claw to a more satisfactory position, then trundled away. Karigan”
“Abram spoke long into the night. His stories took shape slowly and deliberately”
“I'm sorry," Matt said. "I messed up. Thank you for -"
"We had to rescue you. From buffalo."
Fen stepped forward. "And the fact that we messed up because we just finished rescuing Baldwin from Hel doesn't count at all? Really?"
"We are pleased with you for that, son of Loki. As we are pleased with the son of Thor for getting you all out of Hel safely."
"Um, I didn't get us out," Matt said. "It was a joint effort. I actually fell in a river of acid."
"As you should," she said. "We are pleased for that, too."
Obviously she was being sarcastic, but her expression and tone gave no sign of it.”
“It was like watching a man smile as he surrendered himself to drown in deep water.”
“To a terrible place which men’s ears may not hear of, nor their eyes see it.”
“Thank God for Saturday mornings. A reprieve from the familiar, a day unworn by routines. Anything was possible.”
“In an age of iPhones and Playstations, it's great to see that somebody's still rocking the bus-on-a-string.”
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.
