“«Regrets»... I regret how timid and meek I was back then... always telling myself that I couldn't do anything, never even daring to try. That's definitely something I regret. " (p.330)”
“- It's a bit late to say something now... I'll just live with it!
- If all you do is «live with it»... then that's not much of a life." (p.50)”
“Maybe it's impossible to live life without any regrets. Even when you know the future... you'll still mess up." (p.163)”
“To my future self... Thank you... for sending the letter. I wonder if... today's present from Kakeru... reached the «Me» in the future...?" (p.215)”
“Pour créer un avenir meilleur il existe plusieurs chemins.”
“Sometimes life has a cruel sense of humor, giving you the thing you always wanted at the worst time possible.”
“Deveria isto bastar, dizer de alguém como se chama e esperar o resto da vida para saber quem é, se alguma vez o saberemos, pois ser não é ter sido, ter sido não é será, mas outro é o costume, quem foram os pais, onde nasceu, que idade tem, e com isto se julga ficar a saber mais, e às vezes tudo.”
“Did you know that chocolate had special chemicals in it to make you feel happy?"
"I don't need an excuse for chocolate.”
“He smiled his best smile, the one that ruined me for every other smile in the world.”
“It’s one thing to protect yourself,” Dad yelled at me during our very next lunch. “That I get. Have I ever told you not to defend yourself? No. But did you have to permanently maim him? I spent all that money on that on that fancy school for girls-not to mention all that money for the shrinks-and what did that get me?”
I shrugged. “A seven-figure civil suit?”
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.
