“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.”
― Gioconda Belli, quote from Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand: A Novel of Adam and Eve

- لن أموت. إنه يتمنى أن آكل الثمرة. لهذا جعلني حرّة.
- بإمكانك أن تقرري عدم الأكل.
- لا. سيكون ذلك أسهل. وليس ممكناً الآن. فأنا أحتاج إلى المعرفة.
- 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.”
― Gioconda Belli, quote from Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand: A Novel of Adam and Eve


“جلس الرجل على حجر ليشعر بالسعادة ويتأمل كل شيء، بعد أن فعل كل ما يُفترض فعله فكّر أن السعادة طويلة ومرهقة قليلاً. لم يستطع لمسها ولم يجد وظيفة ليديه.

لم يكن يحتاج إلى شيء ولا شيء كان يبدو في حاجة إليه. فشعر أنه وحيد.”
― Gioconda Belli, quote from Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand: A Novel of Adam and Eve

“her all the way to the crossroads, and I think it more than adequate.” Everyone gaped at her like she was mad. “Our goal,” she continued, “was to distract the king, was it not? To distract the king and those who serve him, to send them on a merry chase. It would have been nice to meet the lady, and to use her captivity to our advantage, but our first intention was to empty the tombs of its guards, yes?” Immerez calmed and nodded, and Sarge let out a breath of relief. Karigan’s own thoughts were awhirl. They kidnapped Estora just to distract the king? To empty the tombs? What were they up to? “Who are you?” she asked the woman. The woman did not answer, but withdrew a pendant from beneath her chemise. It was crudely made of iron, but shaped into a design Karigan knew well: a dead tree. “Second Empire,” she whispered. She glanced at the onlookers. “You’re all Second Empire?” Some drew out pendants like the woman’s, and others raised their hands, palms outward, to show the tattoo of the dead tree.

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.
