“Love is the strongest emotion any creature can feel except for hate, but hate can't hurt you. Love, and trust, and friendship, and all the other emotions humans value so much, are the only emotions that can bring pain. Only love can break a heart into so many pieces. ”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night


“Those who cannot be aggressive are hunted down while they shiver and hide because the night is dark.”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night


“I am one of them.
I am also Rachel.
I am Risika”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night


“Vultures devour the fallen. Hyenas destroy the weak. Humans kill that which they fear. Survive and be strong, or die, cornered by your prey, trembling because the night is dark.”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night


“It is a cruel thing to do, to cage such a beautiful, passionate animal as if it was only a dumb beast, but humans do so all too often. They even cage themselves, though their bars are made of society, not of steel.”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night



“Are you a god now, Risika, deciding who is to live and who is to die?”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night


“Humans are often this way. They go about their lives, constantly working, complaining of boredom one minute and overwork the next. They pause only to observe the niceties of society, greeting each other with 'Good morning' while their minds are somewhere else completely.”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night


“I fed on one of the true monsters—one of the many 'witch hunters' who interrogated and jailed the accused, seeking guilt where there was none. How humans can do such things to their fellows is beyond me. They torture, main and kill their own kind, saying it is God's will.”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night


“I fought; I fought for the immortal soul the preachers had taught me to believe in. I do not know whether I ever believed in it—I had never seen God, and He had never spoken to me—but I fought for it anyway, and I fought for Alexander.”
― Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, quote from In the Forests of the Night

“And however it is that you think you still feel about me, I can assure you it's nothing more than a classic case of someone who wants the one thing she can't have. If you had me and got it out of your system, you'd realize the good boy's the one you really want.”
― Wendy Higgins, quote from Sweet Peril


“Mattia thought that he and Alice were like that, twin primes, alone and lost, close but not close enough to really touch each other.”

“Connor strode confidently into the light-filled image. His body blurred for a moment and then there he was, standing among the crates. He paused, stretching his arms and yawning, and then suddenly dropped his pants and mooned us.

"Oh God, Connor!" Adne groaned. "Get through there and bite him, Shay."

"I'm not coming, remember?" Shay objected, but he laughed. "Even if I was, I wouldn't bite his ass."

"Maybe Calla will," Adne grinned.

"Not likely," I muttered though on a second glance I had to admit that Connor's ass wasn't that bad to look at.”
― Andrea Cremer, quote from Wolfsbane


“History is a constant race between invention and catastrophe. Education helps but it’s never enough. You also must run.”
― Frank Herbert, quote from God Emperor of Dune

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 2023, 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.
