heart.

end of the world-
but it's the
beginning of your
art.”
― David Levithan, quote from Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story

LYNDA: They’re not trying to sell you on it yet, but believe me, they will. The idea that two is the ideal, and that one is only good as half of two. You are not a half, and you should never treat someone else like a half. Agreed?
TINY: Agreed!”
― David Levithan, quote from Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story

― David Levithan, quote from Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story

Popular quotes

“Raimon was amused to see that the countess Carenza grew more beautiful by the day: her expression has softened and the pouches under her eyes had disappeared. She carried herself confidently, secure in the knowledge that she was fascinating to one pair of eyes at least.”
― Neil Gaiman, quote from The Sandman: Book of Dreams


“There were no chambers now along the passageway and consequently no lights. There was a glow up ahead, however—fitful and cold, but bright enough to illuminate both the ground she stumbled over, which was bare earth, and the silvery frost on the walls.”
― Clive Barker, quote from Cabal


“Ranulf’s heart did a strange stutter at the way she defended him. He longed to intervene, to stop the questioning.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Merchant's Daughter


“There’s a plan. If you’re willing to fight it hard enough, you can make it detour for a while, but you’re still going to end up wherever God wants you to be. G”
― Homer Hickam, quote from Rocket Boys


“Yet again in life, I was wrong. Not even the passage of millennia makes you infallible.”
― Eva García Sáenz, quote from The Immortal Collection

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.
