“المعرفة والحرية هبتان استخدمتهما أنتِ يا حواء أول مرة، وعلى ذريتك أن تتعلم استخدامهما.”
― Gioconda Belli, quote from Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand: A Novel of Adam and Eve


“- ماذا وراء الجنة؟ لماذا نحن هنا؟
- من أجل ماذا تودين معرفة ذلك؟ لديكِ كل ماتحتاجينه.
- ولماذا لا يجب أن أود معرفته؟ ما المانع من أن أعرفه؟
- الأفضل أن تبقيا هادئين. المعرفة تولّد القلق والتمرد. تجعل المرء يرفض قبول الأشياء كما هي ويسعى لتغييرها.”

- ألا تخافين؟
- لا أخاف. لقد شاهدت أشياء كثيرة. لماذا شاهدتها إن لم يكن لإدراكها والمجازفة من أجل وجودها؟
- ربما لتقبلي بعدم قدرتك على إدراك كل شيء.”

They'll carry me in their pockets to help them sleep. What dreams will they have then?”

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.
