“I shall stay and tell my tale, hope that it may serve some purpose, that eyes shall see it and learn, that the future will not repeat the mistakes of the past. That is my prayer, but what use is prayer to a god that has abandoned all things . . .”
“Come, boy, it is time for a lesson. Let me teach you the power of words,”
“Storm. I shall call her Storm.”
“The mountains were gone, replaced by a lush green vale. A river flowed out of the mountains, twisting in great curves through the vale until it”
“Both the brave man and the coward feel the same. The only difference between them is that the brave man faces his fear, does not run.”
“You can tell much about a man by the company he keeps, by his friends, and his enemies,”
“I think you know, Matthew. You have many corners in your heart.”
“Maybe the reason I believe reality is crueler...
... is because I've never really loved?
There was a time when I believed that...
..."Hard work will pay off." or "Your feelings will always reach them."
I don't know if it's a blessing or a curse...
...that I found out that that's a myth.
What should I do...
If that's what it means to become an adult,

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.
