“A trap is only a trap if you don't know about it. If you know about it, it's a challenge.”
― China Miéville, quote from King Rat

“– Один плюс один равняется одному, твою мать, – сказал он и тяжело обрушил флейту на челюсть Дудочника. Тот отшатнулся, но не упал. – Я не крыса плюс человек, усек? Я больше, чем один из двух, и я больше, чем оба. Я новое существо. Ты не заставишь меня танцевать.”
― China Miéville, quote from King Rat

“Я больше, чем сумма моих составляющих.”
― China Miéville, quote from King Rat

“Saul was going to kill Anansi.
They both knew it. Saul was going to kill Anansi and Loplop and King Rat, and Saul was going to die, all in an effort to prove that he was not his rat-father's son.”
― China Miéville, quote from King Rat

“Le lapidi erano banali, parevano chiedere scusa ai defunti.”
― China Miéville, quote from King Rat

“Warren could see humans further up the street, that had appeared to be dead, now rising to their feet and swaying drunkenly. One man had a huge chunk of flesh bitten from his face and another from his neck, yet he moved forward even though he appeared to be in enormous pain. Many of the newly changed screamed and contorted their limbs and faces in anguish. They moaned in pain almost continuously.”
― quote from Tagged: The Apocalypse

“If it’s a girl, I want to name her Grace.”

“Okay, if it’s a boy, I think we should name him Hamsel,” I said, straight-faced.

“What?” Her tone was not nice.

“Yeah, I’ve always loved the name Hamsel, or we can name him Wilbur Jr. and just call him Junior for short.” I finally had mercy when Mia’s eyes were open as wide as they would go. “I’m kidding. What names do you like?”

“For a boy, hmm. I don’t know; we’ll have to think on it. I really like Birch or Branch, you know something earthy…maybe Webb.” I laughed but she deadpanned, “What? I mean if you don’t like those, I also really like Stream or Haze.”

Oh my God, she’s serious.

She tilted her head to the side, smiled, and cackled like a witch. “Ha, ha, Will. Two can play this game.”

“Thank God, I thought you were serious. Shit.”

She socked me in the chest”
― Renee Carlino, quote from Sweet Little Thing

― James Patterson, quote from Middle School: Get Me Out of Here!

“God has picked you out to pick you up.”
― Joyce Meyer, quote from I Dare You: Embrace Life with Passion

“You’re mine. Tell me you’re mine.” He wants to talk? Like right now?”
― Stacy Borel, quote from Bender

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.
