“I just want you to know that I love you with everything I am—a million times a million and to the moon and back.”
― Laura Miller, quote from My Butterfly


“Desperation will drive you to do things you know will never make you whole again and even to lose the very thing you’re desperate for.”
― Laura Miller, quote from My Butterfly


“Little girl, little boy
If love has a way
Fill their fields with laughter
And scatter the sun on their day
And if it should happen to rain
Make their raindrops kisses
Straight from heaven above
That touch their hands and faces
And that fill them with love
And make the moon reflect their smiles
And their stars plenty
And, above all, keep them together
And hold them as you may
Forever and ever
Until their last day.”
― Laura Miller, quote from My Butterfly


“She tries to wear her pain on the inside. She always has. It’s the trademark of the oldest sibling, I think.”
― Laura Miller, quote from My Butterfly


“She was also a memory, the worst kind of memory--the kind that pulled you to your knees at just the sound of her name.”
― Laura Miller, quote from My Butterfly


“I’ll save a spot for you on the hood of my truck.”
― Laura Miller, quote from My Butterfly


“Because I see
A rainstorm in June
Just before the sun
The black of night
Just before the stars
And, girl, I see your ghost
Just before our dawn”
― Laura Miller, quote from My Butterfly

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.
