“Love should'nt make our choices for us; it should just add importance to our choices.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance

“I got something that people spend their lives looking for. I couldn't have asked for more.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“Message fifty-nine. Almost two months. I’ve never been so empty in my life. You took my soul with you. You took my heart. I’m this empty shell who goes through the motions every day, waiting for you to call me. Waiting until you answer my calls. I never imagined a life like this, but without you, I can’t imagine life. You are my life. You were what was missing in my life. I was searching so hard for something to make me feel whole. I found that with you. You lit up my world and made everything so damn bright and exciting. But now you’re gone, and I’m in a dark place, waiting. Needing to hear you. To touch you, To...”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“I can’t lose you. It would destroy me. You might as well take me with you. I won’t be able to live if you don’t.” I stopped and fought the terror that came with those thoughts. I shoved it away, because I refused to accept it. “I want you to be happy, but I want you alive. I’ll give you anything. Just ask. But I can’t sacrifice you. Your life isn’t something I’m willing to gamble with.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“Let me take you home. I will do it right this time. Give me one more chance. I swear, I’ll make it right.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance

― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“My heart had always been weak, but loving Grant made it strong.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“This . . . this was it. The moment that changed your world. The moment that didn’t just show you heaven but walked you right inside it.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“Sleep tight in the secure arms of your daddy. I know I have. He’ll be good at making you feel safe.
When you’re scared, let him remind you that he’s right there, always ready to hold you when you need it.
More than anything, I want to tell you this: You are a fighter. You are strong. You are brave. You can accomplish anything you set your mind to. This world is yours to make the most of, and I believe you will live a life so full of happiness that I will feel it from above.
Never let others bring you down. Their words don’t change who you are. You are in control of who you are. You, my sweet Lila Kate, are your mother’s daughter. We fight for what we want and what we believe in. We don’t listen to others, and we are secure in who we are. Show the world how amazing Lila Kate Carter is, and climb mountains, baby girl. Climb them all.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“Harlow could live by sheer force of will, I decided I was going to give her the world to fight for.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance

― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“Lila Kate will always be my baby girl. I will cherish and love her until the day I die. But you . . . you’re the love of my life. You’re my forever. I’ll grow old loving you.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“Love shouldn't make our choices for us; it should just add importance to our choices.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“I’m the same Harlow. I’m just secure in the man who loves me. I have nothing to hide from you.” That right there was the reason this woman owned me.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“This is the fifty-seventh message. Fifty seven days. I’m sitting here staring out at the Gulf, like I used to do with you. Nothing is the same without you here. I can’t even go near the bar in my kitchen. Remembering what we did there is too difficult. Everything reminds me of you. If I could hear your voice tonight, Harlow, if I could just hear you tell me you’re OK . . . I would be better. I would be able to take a deep breath. Then I’d beg. I would beg you to love me. I would beg you to forgive me.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“I’ve never been so empty in my life. You took my soul with you. You took my heart. I’m this empty shell who goes through the motions every day, waiting for you to call me. Waiting until you answer my calls.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“He thought I was the hero of our story. How wrong he was. He had been the hero all along.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“He’s gonna end up cursing around Blaire, and you’re gonna be sleeping on the couch for a week. Maybe she’ll stick your ass under the stairs. I hear payback is a bitch,” I told him, referring to how Blaire had slept in a room under Rush’s stairs when she first came to town.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“I'm the same Harlow. I'm just secure in the man who loves me. I have nothing to hide from you.

That right there was the reason this woman owned me.”
― Abbi Glines, quote from One More Chance


“Morning, Major,” I replied, snuggling further into Grant’s arms to reassure him. “I see you’ve met . . . Grant,” I finished weakly. I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to refer to Grant. “Baby daddy” didn’t seem appropriate.

“I know, I know. It's hard to explain. All I can say is that I've been given a second chance. Maxon matters to me, and I'm going to fight for him.":)”
― Kiera Cass, quote from The Elite


“The snug log house looked just as it always had. It did not seem to know they were going away.”
― Laura Ingalls Wilder, quote from Little House in the Big Woods


“You didn't need a weapon at all when you were born one.”
― Sarah J. Maas, quote from Heir of Fire


“Some enterprising rabbit had dug its way under the stakes of my garden again. One voracious rabbit could eat a cabbage down to the roots, and from the looks of things, he'd brought friends. I sighed and squatted to repair the damage, packing rocks and earth back into the hole. The loss of Ian was a constant ache; at such moments as this, I missed his horrible dog as well.

I had brought a large collection of cuttings and seeds from River Run, most of which had survived the journey. It was mid-June, still time--barely--to put in a fresh crop of carrots. The small patch of potato vines was all right, so were the peanut bushes; rabbits wouldn't touch those, and didn't care for the aromatic herbs either, except the fennel, which they gobbled like licorice.

I wanted cabbages, though, to preserve a sauerkraut; come winter, we would want food with some taste to it, as well as some vitamin C. I had enough seed left, and could raise a couple of decent crops before the weather turned cold, if I could keep the bloody rabbits off. I drummed my fingers on the handle of my basket, thinking. The Indians scattered clippings of their hair around the edges of the fields, but that was more protection against deer than rabbits.

Jamie was the best repellent, I decided. Nayawenne had told me that the scent of carnivore urine would keep rabbits away--and a man who ate meat was nearly as good as a mountain lion, to say nothing of being more biddable. Yes, that would do; he'd shot a deer only two days ago; it was still hanging. I should brew a fresh bucket of spruce beer to go with the roast venison, though . . . (Page 844)”
― Diana Gabaldon, quote from Drums of Autumn


“If we're mad, we're mad in large numbers, at least larger than yours.”
― Shannon Hale, quote from The Goose Girl

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.
