“Life hurts. As long as it doesn’t kill us, we weather it.”
“I’m going to ruin you. I’ll be your first, and I’ll fuck you so thoroughly that I’ll be your last too. You won’t want any other man after I’ve gotten my hands on you.”
“I knew I had a problem. I was starting to like that kinky rich bastard.”
“If you are having trouble understanding, let me spell it out for you … This is serious, Bianca. I’ve never been more fucking serious in my life.”
“Even mosochists need lovers. What would a girl like me do without someone like you? Perhaps everyone is good for someone.”
“He lay down beside me, pulling me back to his chest and throwing his arm over me. “Mine,” he whispered in my ear.”
“You are the most perfect fucking thing I've ever seen in my life”
“It was hard to remember that we weren't supposed to feel anything for each other when he looked at me like I was more important than the next breath.”
“In private, though, you may call me Mr. Cavendish”
“I had fallen in love with a perfect lie.”
“You’re the most gorgeous creature on the planet. How do you not know that you’ve completely ruined me for other men?”
“Somebody is smitten with my Buttercup.”
“I want you to feel what I’m feeling, Bianca. I want you to feel this uncontrollable need. I can’t stand the thought that you’re indifferent to me.”
“You have such dreams in your eyes.”
“How could such a beautiful man be insecure?”
“That will get you fucked in a hurry, Love.”
“Is it possible I’m not as sexy as I think I am?”
“Yes, you scare me,” I told him, after a very long silence, while I processed his answer. “But I’m irrevocably fucked up, so you excite me in equal measures. I find it liberating, to let someone control me…”
“It gave me an extraordinary feeling, being on the receiving end of such a stare. It made me feel like I was more important than air to him for a brief, profound moment.”
“My past has shaped me, that's true of anyone.”
“Taking care of you," he said mildly. "I'm getting you ready for bed right now. And if you start throwing up all of that poison you drank tonight, I'll take you to the bathroom and hold your hair out of your face for you.”
“You can call me Grandpa, if that does it for you.”
“It isn’t fair for a man that perfect to be loose among the public.”
“Wear that," he told me.
I didn't protest. It was comfortable enough.
I grabbed a bra and some panties out of my dresser.
He followed me there, digging through the drawer without asking.
"Nice," he said.
"I ordered you a few dozen more pairs. The last line of defensebetween me and your pussy is bound to take some casualties.”
“I want you to be mine, Bianca. Will you be my submissive?”
“Please.” His voice was quiet. “I can’t stand the thought of losing you. What can I do?”
“He began to work on me with his mouth, making me pant and beg in scant seconds. After coaxing a quick, intense orgasm out of me, he rose.”
“Voy a arruinarte — susurró — Voy a ser tu primero, y te voy a joder tan a fondo que voy a ser el último, también. No querrás a ningún otro hombre después de que haya conseguido poner mis manos sobre ti. Hasta el último centímetro de ti.”
“The one who bows into service is an artist. To see work as sacred is to bow into service to it, and thus become its instrument. More specifically and somewhat paradoxically, we become the instrument of that which we create.”
“When I love, I love hard. You’re stuck with me for good. In your news report, you didn’t say what happened at the end of the bumpy ride. You didn’t say what it takes to break the curse. But I know. True Love. the kind that doesn’t go away because of a few disasters along the way. I love you, Melissa.”
“But you, that are polluted with your lusts, Stain'd with the guiltless blood of innocents, Corrupt and tainted with a thousand vices, Because you want the grace that others have, You judge it straight a thing impossible To compass wonders but by help of devils.”
“You are grown, Abby, dear. You’re amazing. I don’t know why you don’t see that.” “But, that’s just it. I do see that. I know I’m amazing and that people should get over the past and see that I’m an adult who likes to dance and not just knit. They need to get over the fact that my parents always fought and don’t even know who I am anymore. They need to know that I’m not the goody-goody they think I am. But that’s not going to happen in a town where everyone knows the exact brand of tampons I use and when I need to buy them.” Jordan curled a lip and shook her head. “That’s just sick. You know, that was one part of small-town living I didn’t miss.” “Yeah, just wait until they make a connection to when you stop buying them. Because believe me, they’re watching to see when you and Matt make a mini Cooper.” She laughed at her own joke, even as Jordan’s eyes widened. “You’re kidding, right? We just got married.”
“Just like every other year, there's a kind of death in the air as the summer is squelched by autumn. It is a lonely feeling.”
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.
