“I know how humans love. Their passion burns like a lump of sugar – quick and hot. And when the fire dies, they seek a new flame. They chase sparks instead of collecting the warmth of old embers.”
“You'll feel better after a new pair of jeans and a triple fudge meltdown. And if that doesn't work, we'll watch Magic Mike."
Cara laughed as tears welled in her eyes. "Let's hope it doesn't come to that.”
“It's like our whole culture is based on frivolity, and I never noticed before." -Cara”
“She wanted to be a normal teenager again, to go to college and spend her nights reading and studying and watching Doctor Who reruns.”
“When you preach hatred, how do you expect your followers to respond?”
“I've always wanted to be a journalist, but what am I going to do? Write articles about which movie star had the fat sucked from her ass and injected into her face? Which professional athlete just confessed to shooting steroids? The last celebrity baby names?" Cara lowered both brows in frustration. "Who cares?”
“Just because you change girlfriends before your gum loses flavor doesn't mean my relationship is doomed to fail.”
“«Quando una cosa è così meravigliosamente buona», gli rispose con aria sognante, «vuoi che duri il più possibile»”
“«L’amicizia cambia, evolve», disse Elle laconicamente. «E a volte passa. È nella natura delle cose»”
“«E questo sentimento», si premette una mano sul petto, «per lui non durerà. Lo so come amano gli umani. Le loro passioni bruciano come una zolletta di zucchero… Bollenti e rapidissime. E appena il fuoco si spegne, vanno alla ricerca di una nuova fiamma. Preferiscono le scintille al rassicurante calore delle vecchie braci»”
“Death defines life. I'd rather stay undefined.”
“I can no longer cry. I groan a few times. Through the slits that are my eyes, I stare at my shoes, at the gray swirls of the concrete floor, at the bright orange lid of my syringe. And I realize—it’s a kind of horror—that this is my life.
And I can’t stop. I just can’t stop. I can’t stop anymore.”
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
“You hacked the FBI?" I said incredulously. "And Interpol," Sloane replied brightly. "And you'll never guess what I found.”
“It's not the amount of time that matters, Nina. It's what you do with it.”
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.
