“Everything is exactly as it is for a reason.

no mystical reminder of this morning's cookie,
it is there because you have chosen not to remove it.
No exceptions.”

― Richard Bach, quote from Messiah's Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soul


“Everything in this book may be wrong.”
― Richard Bach, quote from Messiah's Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soul

no such thing as a problem
without a gift for you
in its hands.
You seek problems
because you need
their gifts.”
― Richard Bach, quote from Messiah's Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soul


“Any powerful idea is absolutely fascinating and absolutely useless until you decide to put it to work.”
― Richard Bach, quote from Messiah's Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soul

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.
