“It was the monster of all winged dinosaurs, the pteranodon.”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Dus ga je maar gauw inlezen, Einstein. We moeten zo veel mogelijk weten.'
'Wat ga jij dan doen?'
Kady keek om, één wenkbrauw opgetrokken, een vilein glimlachje om haar mond. 'Ik moet mijn sabel slijpen.”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Ga daar de hoek om,' commandeerde Morgan Drummond. 'Snij af door het park. En waag het niet om die verrekte meter nog verder op te laten lopen.'
...
Kady greep naar haar heuptasje. 'Oom Edward, u mag wel even met mijn mobieltje bellen dat we te laat komen.'
'Maar we komen niet te laten,' zei Morgan en wendde zich tot de chauffeur. 'Of wel soms?”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Je... je bent een meisje!'
...
'Ik ben niet zomaar een meisje,' zei ze. 'Ik ben de dochter van de Glorie van Ra, hij die als een reus over de wereld loopt: de farao Neferhotep, de glorieuze heerser van heel Deshret... Je zou trots moeten zijn,' zei ze, terwijl ze zich met een zwaai van haar gescheurde mantel omdraaide. 'Je bent nu de slaaf van prinses Nefertiti.”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Nefertiti vouwde haar kap terug. Jake verwachtte dat ze rood zou zien van kwaadheid, maar ze was verdrietig, haar ogen vochtig van de ingehouden tranen. 'Denken jullie allemaal zo slecht over mij?'
...
Jake voelde een steek van medelijden voor Nefertiti. Ze was trots en eigenzinnig, maar in hoeverre was haar karakter aangetast door Kree? Hij herinnerde zich hoe ze in de woestijn was geweest: wild en vrij, bevrijd uit de schaduw van dat monster.”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Het kwaad heeft niet meer nodig dan goede mensen die niets doen.'
'Inderdaad, goed gezegd.' Politor knikte naar Jake en richtte zijn blauwe ogen toen op Nefertiti. 'De mensen van Ka-Tor, wij allemaal, hebben net zo diep geslapen als uw vader.'
Nefertiti stond op, haar stem vol vuur. 'Dan is het tijd dat we allemaal wakker worden.”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Kady!'
...
'Jake!' riep ze.
Toen rolde de golf over haar heen en veranderde haar in steen.”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Pini Lupi... Pene Lope. - Jake”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx


“Goed dat er nog íémand is die weet hoe hij een koninklijk bevel moet opvolgen! - Nefertiti”
― James Rollins, quote from Jake Ransom and the Howling Sphinx

“Memories - you can't escape them, but you can't let them rule you either.”
― Rob Thurman, quote from Deathwish


“There is something sad, dreamy, and in the highest degree poetic in a lonely grave ... You can hear its silence, and in this silence you sense the presence of the soul of the unknown person who lies under the cross. Is it good for this soul in the steppe? Does it languish”
― Anton Chekhov, quote from The Complete Short Novels


“My intention is for all of my activities to be directed by Spirit. My intention is to love and radiate my love to my writing and any who might read these words. My intention is to trust in what comes through me and to be a vehicle of Spirit, judging none of it. My intention is to recognize the Spirit as my Source and to detach from my ego. My intention is to do all that I can to elevate the collective consciousness to be more closely in rapport with the Spirit of the originating supreme power of intention.”
― Wayne W. Dyer, quote from The Power of Intention: Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way


“La verdad que no me importa si no entiendo a las mujeres. Lo único que vale la pena es que lo quieran a uno. Si están nerviosas, si se hacen problemas por cualquier macana, bueno nena, ya está, deme un beso y se acabó. (La señorita Cora)”
― Julio Cortázar, quote from Todos los fuegos el fuego


“I am a disciple of the philosopher Dionysus, and I would prefer to be even a satyr than a saint.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche, quote from Ecce Homo

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.
