“THIS IS THE FACE OF A MAN LOOKING AT A WOMAN HE LOVES. HE HAS NO MONEY OR PRESTIGE, ONLY A HEART.”
“Men aren't known for spilling their guts. It's like their penises block some forms of speech.”
“I’m surprised you don’t have any tattoos. I thought that was part of the artist uniform.”
“Who says I should be that much of a cliché? I’m naturally a masterpiece.”
“Plans are for fools who are naive and selfish. No one can predict anyone’s life, no matter how hard they might try. At the end of the day, everyone was gifted with something called free will.”
“Love is a driving force for a person's decisions, motives, and purpose in life, as is evidenced by many stories told throughout history. It has caused happiness, joy, war, and deceit. Without love, one cannot function and thrive among their peers or humanity as a whole. Its absence can cause irreparable harm to thought processes and logic—or in Van Gogh’s case, make one crazed.”
“I love you, Evelyn.” Leaning in, he grazes my earlobe with his mouth. “For longer than you might have known.”
He chuckles against my cheek. “That’s all you have to say? Likewise?”
“Just shut up and kiss me.”
“I was getting there.”
“This is the face of a man looking at a woman he loves. He has no money or prestige, only his heart.”
“Can I call you Fozzie?”
“Can I call you Evelyn?”
“Not if you want me to answer.”
“It’s safe to say, the same goes for calling me Fozzie. I’m not a Muppet.”
“Like a flame breaking the boundaries to survive underwater, we, too, are something beautiful. We are a substance of our own design. We’re more than water. We’re more than fire. We’re a miracle, a living and breathing combination, with no formula to define us. ”
“This kiss will consummate a part of myself with him that is newly revealed - the living and breathing substance pulsating between both of us.”
“I don't ask any questions. I don't say a word. There's a time to be quiet, and this is one of them because all sound is just white noise when inner thoughts are the only language one can comprehend.”
“Without the consciousness of guilt, existence had become so bland in Paradise that Eve welcomed the pungency of Original Sin.”
“We'd sit. we'd eat. And I'd pretend that I wasn't in irreversible love with his girlfriend. No.Big.Deal.”
“E quem é que os americanos não destruíram? Olha o que eles estão a fazer no Médio Oriente. É a mesma coisa.
…Mas os Vietnamitas derrotaram-nos, porque eram um povo unido. Ao contrário dos idiotas dos Árabes… os Ingleses puseram-nos uns contra os outros há cem anos e eles são demasiado ignorantes para o perceberem. Se fossem unidos, podiam conquistar o mundo.
…A América não vai deixar ninguém conquistar o mundo, a não ser eles próprios. Rebentam com todos nós antes de deixarem seja quem for levar vantagem.”
“I’ll find you sooner or later!” Later still seemed like the better option to me.”
“Where was the “exit” sign? Why did they make it so difficult to get out of shopping center parking lots? You’d done your shopping—they weren’t going to get any more money out of you. What was their objective here?”
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.
