“You were my single greatest adventure.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“What's the difference between look and see?
When someone looks at you, they only see what's on the surface and often miss a lot of the details. When someone sees you, they see who you are, what you're actually about. They see more than what's there in front of them. They're willing to find out more, at the very least. ~ Evie Snow”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“Why should I shatter your wonderful fantasy with my boring reality? ~ Evie Snow”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“Ask me something that will make me think. Something I'll have to wonder whether I should tell you the answer to or not. ~ Evie Snow”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“No, I won't be hopeless. I am full of hope. I'm a HopeFUL. ~ Evie Snow”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side



“I think about it all the time, about what makes everyone who they are, and if we went back in time and changed anything, whether or not it would make a difference. Would it make us better or worse, or would we just stay exactly the same because we were always destined to end up this way no matter what happened throughout our lives? ~ Evie Snow”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“When you eat a chocolate bar, sure, the wrapper might be pretty, full of bold colours and fancy details ... but ultimately, what do you care about? The wrapper? Or what's inside the wrapper?
The chocolate. I care about the chocolate inside the wrapper.
Exactly! For me, it's the same with people. I don't care about what's on the outside. I care about what's on the inside. Someone's mind. Their heart and soul. For me, it doesn't matter whether they're a man or a woman. That's only the wrapper they come in. What I really care about is the chocolate. It's called being pan-sexual. ~ Isla”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“He was a giant who had caught a butterfly and knew he'd only kill it if he kept it but was so reluctant to let it go for its beauty made him something he wouldn't be without it: happy.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“As individuals they were stone, but together they were glass.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“Bad stories can create good people, and I wanted to protect them from those bad stories so they could live with the good person they'd created without ever worrying about what I had to go through to become that person. I kept those secrets because I needed to . . . and sometimes it's OK to make those kinds of decisions for the sake of your own happiness.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side



“it only takes sparks to light a fire”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“The colours of her heart represented the deeds she'd done, both good and bad, but the faint smell of treacle told her that, overall, she had a sweet heart.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“His gaze was fixed on her and he noticed she had a twinkle. It was right there in her eyes. It wasn't a trick of the light. It was actually, physically there. Maybe it was the slight crunch of her nose when she smiled at him, which made the corners of her eyes crease that caused it, or maybe it was the way her eyebrows framed her eyes, but no matter what it was, when he saw that twinkle all he heared in his head was his heart laughing. ~ Vincent Winters”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“even though she didn't love him, it was clear to both of them that their souls were made of the same stuff.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“As individuals they were stone, but together they were glass, and their families danced a ballet around them, careful not to ripple the peace they had found.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side



“To me, the world sounds warm and hushed.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“Yes, that dream ultimately failed, but I learned so much. Mostly tiny things, but it only takes a spark to light a fire. All those tiny things accumulated to make me who I am. If none of it had happened, I could have lived a far worse lie than I did. That's why, despite all the heartbreak, the failure and the secrets, if I was given the chance to go back in time and change things, I wouldn't. Not even a second.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“Great adventures can start small.
Even as small as a sweet.
Help yourself to an adventure.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“There were rules that told him he was supposed to wait three days before he called her again after tonight, and that he was supposed to seem uninterested to make her want him more, but he had never liked playing games that involved manipulating how people felt. Feelings were confusing enough without people toying with them to make them fit their own needs.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side


“As she placed her stil-beating heart in the hole she'd dug, there on it's surface another golden fleck swirled into existence. It was then that she knew she was doing the right thing. Keeping her own heart when she'd already decided who it belonged to felt wrong, as if she was holding stolen possessions. No. Her heart was no longer hers, couldn't be Vincent's, and sadly, was never to be Jim's.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher, quote from On the Other Side

“To be, or not to be; that is the bare bodkin
That makes calamity of so long life;”
― Mark Twain, quote from Adventures of Huckleberry Finn


“Hauk!" a man shouted in the hallway outside.
He fell back from the door and braced himself against the wall. Sumi went low in the center of the room, behind a crate.
"What?" Dancer answered.
"Surrender or we're going to kill them all! Piece by piece, until their screams echo in your ears!"
Dancer laughed at the threat. "You do that and I will eat you, piece by fucking piece. The three of them are the only thing keeping you alive right now. Release them and we'll let you live. It's your choice on how you leave this place. On your feet or feet first. You have thirty seconds to decide.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon, quote from Born of Fury

I looked at him.
He said, "her punishment is being her,”

“In the end, how much distance lies between the truth and what we believe to be true? Between the things we feel at one time and the things we end up doing?”
― Susan Barker, quote from The Incarnations

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.
