“Laketon Elementary School was in the middle of a medium-size town in the middle of New Jersey. There was a reason Dave was in the middle of his fourth hour of not talking, but this isn’t the time to tell about that. This is the time to tell what he figured out in the middle of his social studies class.”
― Andrew Clements, quote from No Talking


“David?” Dave had been home five minutes when he heard his mom come in the front door and call his name. He was upstairs. In the bathroom.

Popular quotes

“It has been my experience, that women possess little or no pride where love affairs are concerned. Pride is a quality often on their lips, but not apparent in their actions.”
― Agatha Christie, quote from Towards Zero


“My mother once said that fear is like a man who, once burned, is afraid of a glow worm”
― Nnedi Okorafor, quote from Who Fears Death


“He found himself smiling and talking politely to people who desired to show their respect and admiration for his uniform-instead of ignoring them and turning away. His sense of separation from and annoyance with these men and women who talked so glibly of war and who had not the faintest notion of what war was ebbed away; and he began to accept the fact that to chatter nonsense with neither knowledge nor perception was the ordinary manner of mankind.”
― Howard Fast, quote from The Immigrants


“los pesimistas se reclutan entre los ex esperanzados, puesto que para tener una visión negra del mundo hay que haber creído antes en él y en sus posibilidades. Y todavía resulta más curioso y paradojal que los pesimistas, una vez que resultaron desilusionados, no son constantes y sistemáticamente desesperanzados, sino que, en cierto modo, parecen dispuestos a renovar su esperanza a cada instante aunque lo disimulen debajo de su negra envoltura de amargados universales, en virtud de una suerte de pudor metafísico; como si el pesimismo, para mantenerse fuerte y siempre vigoroso, necesitase de vez en cuando un nuevo impulso producido por una nueva y brutal desilusión.”
― Ernesto Sabato, quote from On Heroes and Tombs


“There is much in this world that hurts us, but if we let pain become our master, we live our lives as slaves.”
― Hannah Hart, quote from Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded

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.
