“Gotta take life by the balls at some point and squeeze those fuckers with the skill of a whore.”
“Marry me. You wanna do all this shit right. Then marry me."
"Under God's holy law?" she asked.
I shrugged. "Under a fuckin' pink unicorn's law for all I care, I don't give a shit."
"You would do this for me?"
"Baby, I've done a complete one-eighty for you. May as well shackle myself to you for life too.”
“Ky, my heart...it beats for you. My lungs, they breathe for you. My soul..."
Ky's eyes filled with emotion as I spoke.
"What sweet cheeks? Tell me," he asked, a hint of desperation in his voice.
"My soul...belongs to you. You saved me, baby. You wanted me for the me inside. Even looking like this, you make me believe I am enough.”
“I love you, Li. You're mine. My woman. My property. My fuckin' old lady...my fuckin' forever.”
“I'm gonna love you with all these scars, with this sexy-as-fuck- short hair. However the fuck you look, wearing a damn Glad bag if you want. I'm in this with you 'til the very end.”
“Fucking was easy. It was this intimacy between two people that destroyed your heart so you couldn’t see anything else but the bitch before you, giving you something you never knew you even needed.”
“Cause scars or not, hacked-off hair or not, lash marks on your back, a fuckin' cross burned onto your stomach or not, you are perfect to me. You will always exist to me. And anything you did to yourself to fuck that up didn't work because you'll always be the most beautiful bitch I've ever seen. You'll always be the only bitch I'll ever see, period.”
“I am just so impossibly happy. Before you I was vacant of love. Now I am replete. Before you I lived without hope. Now I am inspired. Before you I was broken. Now I am whole."
"Lilah," I rasped, fighting a fucking lump in my throat at her words. I tapped over my heart with my fist and said, "You're in here, Li. You're fuckin' always in here.”
“Don't fuckin' do shit like that again, baby," he interuppted in a raspy, hurt voice. There was no anger in is voice, just a desolate crushed roughness. "Cause I ain't wanting to be without you. You hearing me? You're my fuckin' woman. We ride this road together, no matter what gets in our way.”
“I love you, baby. We're gonna get you through this, 'cause, fuck, you deserve more to life than what you've been getting. You deserve to be happy with me.”
“I wish… to kiss you now.”
“Love if life, and you are my love...You are my entire life.”
“He watches only you. Sees only you. Smiles at only you...I think, for him, you are the brightest star in his sky, blotting out those who have come before.”
“I love you. I never thought it would have ever been possible for me to feel this emotion...but I love you...with all of my heart.”
“Gripping her finger, I brought it to my lips and kissed it, my chest almost exploding as I confessed, "Because I fuckin' love you, Li...I'm fuckin' insane over you. You ain't no burden."
Lilah sucked in a deep breath and her eyes widened. "Ky...why?"
I huffed out a laugh. "Stupid fuckin' question, sweet cheeks," I replied. "Like asking me the impossible. I just do. I fuckin' love your crazy pilgrim ass.”
“The scars on her face had freed her of her demons. She thought herself ugly. I thought she was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen in my life.”
“I'm gonna make you feel beautiful, baby. And you'll never be made to feel less than anyone else, ever again.”
“You may not wanna fuck me yet, baby, but you let me touch you, have your mouth on mine and now I ain't ever gonna stop touching you, kissing you.”
“I'm changed; she's changed me. I'm under her damn spell and I sure as shit don't wanna get out.”
“You're my woman. You've been my fuckin' everything since I first saw you. Do you not understand that by now?”
“Every single second of my life...because it eventually led me to you. It led me to fall so deeply in love with you, Ky...the man who recaptured this bruised and battered heart.”
“No talking baby," I whispered as my lips closed in on hers. "I'm gonna kiss you now and I'm gonna show you how fuckin' good it feels.”
“I love you, Li. Christ, I fuckin' love you," he confessed. I could hear the disbelief and shock laced in his voice. My heart swelled and I began to think of a life with him. A life far from all I had been taught was true, but my soul was attached to his...joined, melded with his.”
“He always kept me safe. He would forever have my heart...even if I could never have his.”
“Fine, I fuckin' love the pilgrim bitch. You happy? Can't get her outta my head. Can't see anyone but her.”
“I was fuckin' in love with the bat shit-crazy pilgrim blonde taking a shower in my bathroom right now...naked.”
“She offered a timid smile, lifted the bottle slowly to her lips, tried the beer, spat it out, laughed about it, and damn near crushed my whore heart.”
“But now, when he smiles at you, his eyes smile too”
“I'd kill for you baby. Anyone even comes close to trying to take you away from me and I'll slit their motherfuckin' throat. You belong to me, you're mine, and right now, in this bed, I'm gonna do something else for the very first time. We both are. I'm gonna make love to you, Lilah. I'm gonna take you as mine, possess you. 'Cause there ain't no one out there...no one else who could do this to me, but you.”
“He had taken a piece of my tainted soul...of my heart...and made him a part of me. He was in my every cell, my conscience. He was simply part of me.”
“since the thing perhaps is
to eat flowers and not to be afraid”
“but please allow me to introduce myself. I’m Logan Mitchell, and this is Tate Morrison, and he is my partner.”
“Não é porque temos só uma vida que precisamos ter medo de estragá-la.”
“The path we plan for ourselves meanders in ways we can never imagine. Life never ceases to throw us googlies. It is how we handle them that makes all the difference. Sometimes you have to take control of it and, at other times, it is best to let go. And the wisest of persons is the one who knows which option to choose.”
“I don't need you on your back for anything Martise, unless you want to go star-gazing with me.”
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.
