“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.”
“Like nightmares, dreams were insidious things, and didn't like being locked away.”
“We must be what we are, or we become our enemies. ”
“People were always saying to Margaret, 'Well, Julia sings and Betsy writes. Now what is little Margaret going to do?' Margaret would smile politely, for she was very polite, but privately she stormed to Betsy with flashing eyes, 'I'm not going to do anything. I want to just live. Can't people just live?”
“You sound as fierce against sin as Harsnet.’ He grinned. ‘Only sins I don’t feel drawn to myself,’ he said with a flash of his old humour. ‘ ’Tis always easy to condemn those.”
“He watched their faces, and he knew each meant desperately what she said because they loved each other, and deep inside surely each knew the words were false, that the true words were those unspoken.”
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.
