Popular quotes

“Perhaps so many journals had piled up in the lighthouse because on some level most came, in time, to recognize the futility of language. Not just in Area X but against the rightness of the lived-in moment, the instant of touch, of connection for which words were such a sorrowful disappointment, so inadequate an expression of both the finite and the infinite.”
― Jeff VanderMeer, quote from Acceptance

“Have we been compromised by our own data? The answer is: Of course.”
― Jeff VanderMeer, quote from Authority

“لم ينعم النظر في مباهج الذاكرة.ثمة أشياء، في وسعها أن تملأ روحه تماماً الا انه شيئاً فشيئاً أفلَت منه العالم الجميل، لم تكن الليلة عامرة بالنجوم، والأرض تحت قدميه موضع شك. كان كل شيء يزداد نأياً وضبابية.”
― Jorge Luis Borges, quote from Dreamtigers

“When I first met you, I was ready. I had a space for you.”
― Rachel Joyce, quote from The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy

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.
