Popular quotes

“So now you know that, as dark as the depths of the sea may be, as dark as the night gets without a moon, it is not really true darkness. It's just waiting for light to return. There are places that are truly dark in this world, Ven, but this place here, this open stretch of sea where you are floating, is not one of them. It's not really dark here - it's just night. If you hang on and stay awake, in a short while the edges of the sky will start to turn gray, then pink, and the sun will rise, and there will be blue above and all around you again.”
― Elizabeth Haydon, quote from The Floating Island


“The more she thought about it, the more she realized: Oak Ridgers had kept the most amazing secret ever.”
― Denise Kiernan, quote from The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II


“If I amount to anything it’ll be as part of a band. That’s it. I’ll be playing dive bars and shitty clubs, and I’ll get high in the alleys and do lines in the bathrooms, and eventually I’ll OD and that’ll be that.” I glance ad her. “Is that the life you want?”
― Jasinda Wilder, quote from Falling Under


“Hindsight, I thought, was like a punishment, remorseless in its clarity and painfully unable to change what had gone before.”
― Susanna Kearsley, quote from The Splendour Falls


“El olvido, dice el poder, es el precio de la paz, mientras nos impone una paz fundada en la aceptación de la injusticia como normalidad cotidiana. Nos han acostumbrado al desprecio de la vida y a la prohibición de recordar. Los medios de comunicación y los centros de educación no suelen contribuir mucho, que digamos, a la integración de la realidad y su memoria. Cada hecho está divorciado de los demás hechos, divorciado de su propio pasado y divorciado del pasado de los demás. La cultura de consumo, cultura del desvínculo, nos adiestra para creer que las cosas ocurren porque sí. Incapaz de reconocer sus orígenes, el tiempo presente proyecta el futuro como su propia repetición, mañana es otro nombre de hoy: la organización desigual del mundo, que humilla a la condición humana, pertenece al orden eterno, y la injusticia es una fatalidad que estamos obligados a aceptar o aceptar.”
― Eduardo Galeano, quote from Upside Down: A Primer for the Looking-Glass World

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.
