-I don't sing or draw or act or play an instrument. I can't make things.-
-That's not what 'creative' means, you know. Creativity is in everything.-”

Alex snorted. "Yeah, Aaron. It's really good. I think it means she likes you.”
“Maybe you could keep him away from the breakables, eh?” “Maybe I could let him crrrush you into tiny bits,” Simber”
“People who care about each other don't hurt each other or make each other feel small. Period. End of sentence. It was obvious that Liam's problem was much bigger than just feeling like he had to obey...”

“…in the library…surrounded by things far more dangerous than what roamed the school corridors. For here thoughts were housed.”
“... Защото това тук нищо не значи. Да виждаш и да не разбираш — това е все едно да измисляш. Аз виждам, виждам и не разбирам, живея в свят, съчинен от някого, който не си е направил труда да ми го обясни на мен, а може би и на себе си. Тъга по разбирането — изведнъж си помисли Перец. — Ето от какво съм болен — от тъга да разбирам.”
“He remembered hearing Karl tell James once that it was hard for people to ever know what they really looked like. Reflections in mirrors weren’t accurate, Karl said, because when you stared at yourself in a mirror, you subconsciously composed your face in a way that wasn’t your natural expression.

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.
