“I wouldn’t make fun of someone’s nightmares until you’ve slept a night in his pajamas.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“That’s how fear grows. When you keep it locked inside and never let it out, it starts to eat you alive.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“Do you know why people think nightmares aren’t real?” Charlie was too confused to answer. Something had changed. This nightmare was different from the rest. The witch had never spoken to him like this before. “Because most people wake up,” the witch continued. “Their spirits come here when they sleep and their bodies stay safe and sound in your world until morning.” She leaned in closer. “But you know what I’ve figured out? I’ve figured out how to bring your body here to the Netherworld too.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“Mi sa che ti hanno mentito,
se ti hanno detto che gli incubi non sono veri.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“Se fossi in te, non prenderei in giro gli incubi degli altri senza aver dormito una notte nel loro pigiama.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“Dabney is convinced that the Dream Realm exists. That’s why he’s such a thorn in the president’s side. Dabney says our job isn’t to keep humans scared. Our job is to help humans face their fears. And if we do our jobs well, we deserve to retire. The Dream Realm is our reward.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“As soon as Jack had squeezed around the boxes and out the door, Charlie pulled the covers back up to his chin and thought about what the witch had said. I’ve never seen anyone as scared as you, Charlie Laird. Was it true?”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“The plan, my fellow nightmares, is simple. One—find the boy. Two—keep the portal open. Three—conquer the Waking World. Four—try a Krispy Kreme doughnut. Five—never die.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“La paura è come il catrame,
si appiccica dappertutto e divora ogni cosa.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“E' così che cresce la paura.
Se la tieni chiusa dentro senza farla mai uscire comincia a divorarti vivo.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“Non importa di cosa hai paura, importa il perché ne hai paura.
Gli incubi sono le paure della gente camuffate.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!


“Solo i deboli hanno bisogno di far sentire piccoli gli altri.”
― Jason Segel, quote from Nightmares!

Popular quotes

“Italian troops from the Assietta and Aosta Divisions surrendered by the thousands, grousing at German betrayal. “One never seemed to be able to do enough to please them,” an Italian POW explained.”
― Rick Atkinson, quote from The Day of Battle: The War in Sicily and Italy, 1943-1944


“To avoid this state of war (wherein there is no appeal but to heaven, and wherein every the least difference is apt to end, where there is no authority to decide between the contenders) is one great reason of men's putting themselves into society, and quitting the state of nature: for where there is an authority, a power on earth, from which relief can be had by appeal, there the continuance of the state of war is excluded, and the controversy is decided by that power.”
― John Locke, quote from Second Treatise of Government


“I wondered how it was possible to be so happy and so miserable all at once.”
― Catherine M. Wilson, quote from A Journey of the Heart


“Why do you weep?” “The pain,” I said, and it was true, but it was not of my wounds I spoke.”
― Janet Lee Carey, quote from Dragon's Keep


“Some girls are pretty, and it’s like they were destined for it. They were meant to be pretty, and as for the rest of us, well, we get to exist on the outer edges of life. It’s like moths. They’re the same as butterflies, aren’t they? They’re just gray. They can’t help being gray, they just are. But butterflies, they’re a million different colors, yellow and emerald and cerulean blue. They’re pretty. Who’d dare kill a butterfly? I don’t know of a single soul who’d lift a finger against a butterfly. But most anybody would swat at a moth like it was nothing, and all because it isn’t pretty. Doesn’t seem fair, not at all.”
― Jenny Han, quote from Shug

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.
