“My boy, I know what I’m talking about. Mind you, I’m not saying marriage doesn’t come hard on a fellow at first. It does. Fellow says to himself, damn it all, he says, I can’t call my soul my own! But he gets broken in. It’s all discipline.” Luke”

“L'altura di Ashe Ridge incombeva, opprimente e minacciosa, e un'improvvisa folata di vento scosse con violenza i rami degli alberi. In quell'istante, da dietro l'angolo della casa, comparve una ragazza.
Coi capelli neri scompigliati dal vento, ricordò a Luke il quadro di Nevinson intitolato "La strega". Quel viso pallido, delicato, quei capelli così lunghi che parevano arrivare fino alle stelle... se la immaginò a cavallo di un manico di scopa che voleva verso la luna.”
― Agatha Christie, quote from Murder Is Easy

“Gabriel had not wanted to take Emma. But Granny Peet had insisted. “She is tied to the Atlas. If you find it, you will need her.” “That’s right,” Emma had said. “And you gotta take Dena too. Or I’m not coming.” And so Emma had been outfitted with new clothes and boots and a knife and, an hour after the meeting, she and Dena and the small band of men had been given a blessing from Granny Peet and had set off up the mountain. Gabriel”

“Spre deosebire de alte popoare asiatice, tailandezii nu cred în fantome şi manifestă puţin interes pentru soarta cadavrelor. Cele mai multe sunt duse direct la groapa comună. Cum nu voi lăsa instrucţiuni precise, la fel se va-ntâmpla şi cu mine. Cineva, foarte departe, în Franţa, va completa un act de deces, va bifa o căsuţă într-un formular de stare civilă. Câţiva vânzători ambulanţi obişnuiţi să mă vadă prin cartier vor clătina din cap. Camera mea va fi închiriată altui călător. Apoi mă vor uita, mă vor uita repede...”
― Michel Houellebecq, quote from Platform


“(Ugh. Don’t even get me started. It’s like teachers think we have nothing better to do with our lives than to come home and do more schoolwork.) [SirLeo] (It’s coz they’re old and have no lives and want to punish those who do.)”
― Mari Mancusi, quote from Gamer Girl

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.
