“Because pretending to be happy is almost like being happy. Until you remember that you’re only pretending. Then you’re sad. Really sad. Because wearing a mask every day of your life is the hardest thing to do. And after a while, you get a little scared because the mask becomes you.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Leave the past behind you so the future can find you.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels

― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“He was my golden, and I was his. Forever forever and always always.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Alive. I want to be alive, and I have no idea why, seeing how hideous life is at times. Maybe it's belief, hope, and passion all wrapped into one shape that rests inside my chest. Perhaps my heart is just praying for better tomorrows to replace all those shitty yesterdays.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels

― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“I thought I made you up. I thought that I was living in a world of darkness and I imagined you into existence. That somehow my mind crafted you, placing you on that train months ago. But then I realized I could never dream of something so beautiful. “You’re the reason people believe in tomorrow. You’re the voice that scares the shadows away. You’re the love that makes me breathe. So for the next few seconds, I’m going to be selfish. I’m going to say things that I don’t want you to listen to.” My hands ran up and down her back as I pulled her closer, feeling her nerves rocking throughout her. I kissed the edge of her ear. “Don’t go. Stay with me forever. Please, Ashlyn. Let me be your everything. Make me your golden. Don’t. Go.
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“I don’t want to be your friend,” he said. We breathed in together and exhaled in harmony. “I want to be yours, I want you to be mine, and I hate that we can’t be us. Because I think we were meant to be us.
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Everyone has a golden. It could be anything-a song, a book, a pet, a person. Anything that makes you so happy your insides cry of pure joy. It feels like you're on drugs but better because it's a natural high. Shakespeare is my golden.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels



“His kisses tasted like forever soaked in always.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“I never said it would be easy. I just said do it. Besides, the best things in life aren't easy. They are tough, they are painful, and they are raw. That makes the arrival to the final destination that much sweeter.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Being a teenager is a curse and a gift. It's the age where fairytales cease to exist and Santa isn't real but parts of our hearts want to say 'What if...”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Because I’d never seen two people who loved each other so quietly.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels

― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels



“I'll be your best friend, darlin', if you tell me your name.
I'll be your sunshine when you grow tired of the rain.
You can walk away and I'm sure I'll be all right.
But just so you know, you'll be in my dreams tonight...”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“You deserve to be the chorus to a person’s favorite song. You deserve to be the dedication in their favorite book.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. But if there's anyone I want to be like when I do, it's that young man who wrote those words. I want to remember to breathe in the laughter and cherish the tears. I want to dive into hope and land in love. I want to be alive when I grow up because...I have never been alive in all of my life. And I think the least we can do, in order to honor Ryan, is to start living today. And forgive ourselves for all of the shitty yesterdays.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Humans weren't made to be perfect, Daniel. We were made to screw up, fuck up, and learn new things. We were made perfectly imperfect.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“He said that it was okay to not be okay. He explained that it was fine to be broken for a while, to not feel anything but hurt.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels



“It takes a strong man to love my sister. And you are a strong man. So her are some twin-tips for you from yours truly:

Read her Shakespeare when she cries.
Take walks in the rain and jump in the puddles with her.
Don't mind her when she calls you an asshole during 'that time of the month' - she's a total bitch at those times.
Buy her flowers because it's Tuesday.
Make her do things that scare her.
Don't be a pushover - we don't like that.
Don't be a dick either - we hate that.
Smile at her when you're mad.
Dance with her in the middle of the day.
Kiss her just because.
Love her forever.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“If I learned anything these past few months, it's that life sucks, Daniel. It sucks. It's mean, it's vicious, and it's unapologetic. It's dark and cruel. But then, sometimes, it's so beautiful that it knocks all of that darkness out of your system with the light.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Daniel: You’re beautiful, Ashlyn. I don’t just mean your looks. I mean your smarts, your tears, your brokenness. I think that’s beautiful.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels

― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“I guess sometimes it was easier to be mean than to be hurt.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels



“Because maybe home wasn’t a location. Maybe it’s simply the people who you were surrounded with that made you feel as if you could be whoever you wanted to be. Maybe home was friendship.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“I wasn't sure of it, but I was almost certain that loneliness was a disease. An infectious, disgusting illness that was slow to creep into your system and overtake you, even though you tried to fight it off the best you could.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“I was convinced that everyone in the world had a form a weirdness to them. And the cool thing, at least I hoped so, was the idea that there was someone out there just as quirky as you were. The idea of finding your other weirdo was so attractive to me.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“Can you do me a few favours? Show her off to the world. Shout it from the rooftops. Take her out on dates. She loves to dance - even though she's really bad at it. Make other couples jealous. Be her golden. Because I promise that she'll be yours.”
― Brittainy C. Cherry, quote from Loving Mr. Daniels


“You're the reason people believe in tomorrow. You're the voice that scares the shadows away. You're the love that makes me breathe. So for the next few seconds, I'm going to be selfish. I'm going to say things that I don't want you to listen to. Don't go. Stay with me forever. Please, Ashlyn. Let me be your everything. Make me your golden. Don't. Go.”

“Whatever path you chose, make sure it has a heart.”
― Xavier Saer, quote from Bleeding Heart (A Timeless Fable About Living Life With Passion)


“He takes my face with two hands. His eyes drink in every part, and then a slight pause, hesitation perhaps. For a moment, he turns away and then with the same intensity as when he closed the distance between us, he pulls me against him and kisses me. He kisses me firmly with his soft and hungry mouth. He tastes salty and sweet, and I fall deep into a blinding torrent of wonder.”
― Cindy Martinusen Coloma, quote from Caleb + Kate


“Author? Author? Did you write these legs?'
'Yes."
'Well, I don't like dem. I don't like 'em at all at all. I could ha' writted better legs meself.”
― Spike Milligan, quote from Puckoon


“Life lesson number 3: Life is shitty. Fucking deal with it. You want something? Take it. Take it and fuck everything and everybody else. There is not a line outside your door waiting to hand it to you.”
― Cheryl McIntyre, quote from Before Now


“She was still obliged to leave the house every day, on her usual hunt for food; and especially on days of bad weather she had no other solution but to leave Useppe alone, his own guard, locking him in the room. It was then that Useppe learned to pass time thinking. He would press both fists to his brow and begin to think. What he thought about is not given to us to know; and probably his thoughts were imponderable futilities. But it's a fact that, while he was thinking in this way, the ordinary time of other people was reduced for him almost to zero. In Asia there exists a little creature known as the lesser panda, which looks like something between a squirrel and a teddy bear and lives on the trees in inaccessible mountain forests; and every now and then it comes down to the ground, looking for buds to eat. Of one of these panda it was told that he spent millennia thinking on his own tree, from which he climbed down to the ground every three hundred years. But in reality, the calculation of such periods was relative: in fact, while three hundred years had gone by on earth, on that panda's tree barely ten minutes had passed.”
― Elsa Morante, quote from History

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.
