“I have had my say, as he wished. Now the book belongs, as he points out, to the world he claims to speak for.”
― Julian Darius, quote from Nira/Sussa


“All I ever wanted, nira I expected: Nonette, upon whom my life pivots.

The name I give my fire when I lay down, defenseless before its majestic awfulness.

A little no, a little negation. A French girly pout, the syllables for which have been found at last.

All my hurt dug up, exposed for dissection in the glaring light, and finally melted away by the loving caresses of her yielding thighs.

And the girl who took such simple joy in this terrible duty.

Nonette.”
― Julian Darius, quote from Nira/Sussa


“The monster once awakened, may go into hibernation, but he is always lurking, just beneath the polite suits and phallic ties.”
― Julian Darius, quote from Nira/Sussa

Popular quotes

“We have an infinite capacity to love, but when you wrap up your love and give it to someone, they expect all of it. And that’s what you think too—that you’re giving them everything you’ve got. You really do. Until you realize that love is end-less, bottom-less, boundary-less. The more you give, the more gushes out. It spills over, refusing to be contained in neat little parcels, swelling like a river after a flash flood. And in the end, it doesn’t matter which part was whose, because in the end it’s all one, like streams merging into the ocean”
― Leylah Attar, quote from 53 Letters for My Lover


“You cannot kill a breeze, a wind, a fragrance, you cannot kill a dream or an ambition. God, manufactured by mortals in their own quintessential image, exists only to make daily life bearable despite the path that every one of us treads toward extinction. As long as men are obliged to die, some of them, unable to endure the prospect, will concoct fond illusions.We cannot assassinate or kill an illusion. In fact, illusion is more likely to kill us — for God puts to death everything that stands up to him, beginning with reason, intelligence, and the critical mind. All the rest follows in a chain reaction.”
― Michel Onfray, quote from Atheist Manifesto: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism, and Islam


“But loving a person didn’t necessarily make you right for them—didn’t make them a good person to be in your world.”
― Laurelin Paige, quote from The Fixed Trilogy (Fixed, #1-3)


“Stephanie glared at Skulduggery. "What was wrong with the door? You could have just come down the stairs and walked out the door. Why did you have to jump out of the window?"
"You know why," Skulduggery said, walking away.
Axle looked up, tears streaming from his eyes. "Why did he do that? Why?"
Stephanie glowered. "Because doors are for people with no imagination," she said, and led Axle to the car.”
― Derek Landy, quote from The Dying of the Light


“I want you to remember who you are. Remember the man you were when we met? That man. The man that said I’m going to marry that woman.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from 1st Semester

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.
