“I have the choice to be angry at God for what i don't have, or be thankful for what i do have”
“Some injuries heal more quickly if you keep moving.”
“... God gave you just one mouth but He gave you two ears, so you should listen twice as much as you speak”
“You can't even stand without risking to fall.”
“Yet I also believe that when you do unto others, blessings come to you as well. So if you don't have a friend, be a friend. If you are having a bad day, make someone else's day. If your feelings are hurt, heal those of another.”
“.. Fear is often described as False Evidence Appearing Real.”
“Have you ever felt trapped in circumstances, then discovered that the only trap was your own lack of vision, lack of courage, or failure to see that you had better options?”
“...trade the life of self pity, that I was living, for a life of purpose!

“We easily become trapped in the 'someday' mentality. Someday I'll have all the money I need to enjoy life. Someday I'll be able to spent more time with my family. Someday I'll have time to relax and do what i love doing.”

“Harapan dapat menyingkirkan halangan yang bahkan kelihatannya mustahil digerakkan.”

“Life isn’t about having, it’s about being. You could surround yourself with all that money can buy, and you’d still be as miserable as a human can be. I know people with perfect bodies who don’t have half the happiness I’ve found. On my journeys I’ve seen more joy in the slums of Mumbai and the orphanages of Africa than in wealthy gated communities and on sprawling estates worth millions.”
“Once you accept that perfection is just a goal, screwing up isn't so hard to handle. Each misstep is still a step, another lesson learned, another opportunity to get it right the next time.”
“Keep moving ahead because action creates momentum, which in turn creates unanticipated oppurtunties.”
“What really matters are the lives you touch along the way and how you finish your journey.”
“Sa-ti descoperi rostul in viata reprezinta totul.Te asigur ca si tu ai ceva cu care sa contribui la viata din jurul tau.S-ar putea sa nu stii inca despre ce este vorba,dar nu ai fi pe pamant daca nu ai avea rostul tau.Stiu sigur ca Dumnezeu nu face greseli,insa face miracole.Eu sunt una dintre ele.Si tu la fel.”
“Viata nu inseamna a avea,ci a fi.”
“Vezi tu , uneori Dumnezeu asteapta de la tine sa pui si tu umarul.Iti poti dori anumite lucruri.Poti visa.Poti spera.Dar trebuie sa si actionezi in directia acelor dorinte , visuri si sperante.Trebuie sa te intinzi dincolo de locul in care te afli ca sa poti ajunge acolo unde vrei sa fi.”
“Helen Keller, who lost both her sight and hearing in childhood but became a renowned activist and author, said that there is no such thing as a secure life. “It does not exist in nature … Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Risk, then, is not just part of life. It is life. The place between your comfort zone and your dream is where life takes place. It’s the high-anxiety zone, but it’s also where you discover who you are. Karl Wallenda, patriarch of the legendary high-wire-walking family, nailed it when he said: “Being on the tightrope is living; everything else is waiting.”
“Multumirea o dobandesti doar atunci cand te angajezi pe deplin,cu toata forta,cu toate talentele si pasiunea ta”
“Cand cauti fericirea in lucruri materiale,acestea nu iti vor fi niciodata indeajuns.
Priveste in jurul tau.Priveste in tine.”
“To pursue your dreams you have to take action. Move it or lose it. Act or be acted upon. If you don’t have what you want, consider creating what you want. God will light the path. Your chance of a lifetime, the door to your dreams is open. Your path to a purpose may present itself at any moment. Be ready for it. Do all you need to do. Learn all you need to know. If no one comes knocking, beat down a few doors. One day you’ll step into the life you desire.”
“We had a tough fight here, but dammit, we’re getting the job done. The First and the Twenty-ninth took heavy casualties all day yesterday, and they’re still taking them now.”
“Real love, well, it means sacrifice. It means thinking of the other person's needs before your own.”
“I’m a glass-is-half-full person now, and your sorry ass is still in half-empty country.”
“Depression as Denial of the Self Depression consists of a denial of one’s own emotional reactions. This denial begins in the service of an absolutely essential adaptation during childhood and indicates a very early injury. There are many children who have not been free, right from the beginning, to experience the very simplest of feelings, such as discontent, anger, rage, pain, even hunger—and, of course, enjoyment of their own bodies.”
“Everything was really a story, penned or thought or acted out at some time by someone.”
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.
