“He’ll see that if you love a woman, you fight like hell to hold on to her. And you don’t fucking walk away when things get tough.”
“You’re one of the best men I know. You wear your tats and piercings and those damn leather bracelets that only you could get away with. But inside you are one big teddy bear. When someone you love needs you, there is nothing you won’t do for them. When I needed you, you were always there. I’ve never questioned your heart. It’s made of fucking gold, and we all know it. We laugh at your crude jokes and snide comments because we know they mean nothing. It’s part of your shield. Underneath, I don’t know many men that compare. You’re one of the best, Dewayne. One of the best.”
“Women were fucking complicated, but the right one turned the shit in life to gold with a simple smile.”
“Because you’re mine. And I’m so fucking yours.”
“I’ve known you all my life. And I’ve never seen you treat anyone the way you treat Sienna. Not when we were in high school and not now. She’s your one. The one who reaches you. The one who makes you different.”
“I’d just known I wanted her happy. It was important to me.
But I knew why now. She was special. The kind of special that is hard to find in this life. The kind of special most people don’t get to touch. It’s the rare kind that, when you find it, you know it’s worth fighting for.”
“They weren't mine, but in my heart they were.”
“The journey may not be easy, but when you find the one to take it with, then you can do anything.”
“This one spot. All over. Fuck, Sienna, I don’t know if I can go slow. I want to so much, but right now I just wanna be inside you.”
“Because hearing you laugh makes everything okay”
“My husband claims I have an unhealthy obsession with secondhand bookshops. That I spend too much time daydreaming altogether. But either you intrinsically understand the attraction of searching for hidden treasure amongst rows of dusty shelves or you don't; it's a passion, bordering on a spiritual illness, which cannot be explained to the unaffected.”
“Now I know without a shadow of doubt that you can't chase away those images, let alone the visible holes that burrow deep down inside. You can't chase away the reverberations or the memories that stir as night falls or in the early hours. You can't chase away echoing screams, still less echoing silence”
“Чувствах жарта вътре в мозъка си, разпалена и червена. Фий, поилки, хранилки, гълъбарник, кошници, курешки – всичко по дяволите! Бояджийска стълба, тръстика, топка сяра, гушести, червени очички и червени крака - всичко по дяволите! Паунест, качулат, монахиня, гълъбчета и гълъбища – всичко по дяволите! Таванска стая – само за мен, дупката на тавана – да се затвори, столовете – в таванската стая, край на разходките на гълъбите из къщата, кошът с прането - на терасата, прането – простряно на терасата. Кръглите очи и острите човки, перушината, преливаща от розово в ябълково- всичко по дяволите! Майката на Кимет, без да иска, ми беше показала изхода… Започнах да тормозя гълъбите, докато мътеха. Използвах, докато децата спяха следобед, качвах се на терасата и измъчвах гълъбите. Таванът на терасата беше като фурна, цялото сутрешно слънце се събираше на покрива и го нажежаваше, а сгорещените гълъби и вонята им го превръщаха в ад.”
“The way my heart raced like I was being chased through the woods even though I wasn't scared at all.”
“But I believe we all fall in love for some esoteric and simple reason: the first time a man comes to your rescue, the way he holds you when you kiss, his smile that has you endlessly daydreaming. I'm not sure the reason you fall is as important as the fact that you have indeed fallen.”
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.
