“there’s nothing wrong with a man who enjoys a good romance book. My dad always said the best way to learn what a woman wants is to pick up some of the smut they love to read so much. Written by a woman, it might as well be a road map to instant pleasure.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“When I look in the mirror, I won’t see the things they will most likely say about me. I’ll see me, Willow Tate, the woman who isn’t perfect, but she is perfect in her imperfections.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“No, let me finish. There isn’t beauty in perfection. It’s as fake as the image the word projects. Beauty is found in imperfection, Willow, because to admit you’re not perfect means you’re admitting you’re not whole and absolute. When I think of myself, I see someone willing to admit he’s as far from complete as it gets because, in order to get to that perfection, I need to find the other part of me who will make my life better. To take all the faults I have and fill them, and only then will I be there. You see, the way I see it, the only way to become perfect is to find that perfectly imperfect person who brings it out of you.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“You know, if you spent more time reading those romance books, you would have figured this out before now.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I’m the imperfect to his perfect.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“A person can be stronger than fear tries to trick them into believing.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“It isn’t that I’m a weak person. I’m a product of self-destruction, or so my therapist tells me. I’m a battlefield of strength versus weakness and reality versus my own mind. I don’t look in the mirror and hate myself because I’m weak. No, I hate myself because even though my clothes and the scale tell me one thing, I can’t see it. It takes all the strength a person can muster to continue fighting his or her own self-image. Fighting to find their way back from the damage they’ve done to themselves physically and mentally.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“We win. Our love wins. They can say what they want. Hate me, make me the villain, and do their worst to try to rip me apart. They only win if we let them, and that will never happen.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“the only way to become perfect is to find that perfectly imperfect person who brings it out of you.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“Hestitation is a dangerous thing. It hints that something is hiding when you take that pause.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“Life isn't what others want for you, but what you want for yourself.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I’m not proud of it, but I celebrated karma’s brilliance in a drunken rage of laughter, facemasks, and nail polish. So”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“Those women hold nothing to you.
They aren't the ones I want. You are.
If I have to knock each and every one of those
fears out of your mind, I'll gladly do it
if it means you understand, without a
shadow of doubt, that when I look at
you, I fucking love what I see.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“Didn’t anyone ever tell you that life starts at the end of your comfort zone? When you break free of the fears that have held you back, you’re going to be free to fly, and that, honey, is when you’re going to find the happiness you deserve. But you have to start somewhere. You have to push that fear aside and just wing it—trusting you will never be alone should you fall.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“It’s time to take that leap and be what he believes is something achievable. Finally shed the weakness old Willow wore as a cloak of protection and allow my determination to be stronger and to be all the armor I need to protect myself.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“You don’t see how beautiful you are because you’re too busy hiding to avoid more pain.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“She has to be able to show others the hope they need is within themselves and that you are stronger than fear tries to trick you into believing.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“Recognizing when you hit the ground of rock bottom and it turns into quicksand puts into perspective that you really don't have anything left to lose.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I want someone real. I need a challenge.
I want to feel that connection to someone
I've never been able to find.
The one you read about.
The one that makes you feel alive.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I allow my sobs to join the tears as I leave the only man who will ever hold my heart behind.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I was my own martyr. I stayed because, in a sense, I believed I deserved it.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I have the love of the greatest man and his family. But most of all, I have the love of my own self and each and every perfectly imperfect moment I’ve lived, loved, and won.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I’ve lived that life—where the bullies around you want nothing more than to watch you drown. It doesn’t take a physical person to be your shield, but you turning into someone new. Being reborn in a sense as someone stronger. What did he say? Thriving in the face of the fall. “In”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“I flap my arm out in the air but quickly drop it when I remember I’m wearing a tank top … the number one enemy of a chubby girl is the skin under her arms. I always feel like it’s just jiggling like crazy.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“You’re better than this, Willow. You’ve come so far. Don’t let her take everything you’ve earned from you. You aren’t weak anymore. No one has that power over you but yourself.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“This feeling of bone-deep contentment, the connection to someone that feels physical even without a tangible touch, that is what I’ve been missing.”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect


“The magnificence that we both see in each other will only intensify the beauty we see in ourselves. He”
― Harper Sloan, quote from Perfectly Imperfect

Popular quotes

“In the morning and in the evening and at night in his dreams, this street was filled with constantly bustling traffic, which seen from above seemed like a continually self-replenishing mixture of distorted human figures and of the roofs of all sorts of vehicles, constantly scattered by new arrivals, out of which there arose a new, stronger, wilder mixture of noise, dust, and smells, and, catching and penetrating it all, a powerful light that was continually dispersed, carried away, and avidly refracted by the mass of objects that made such a physical impression on one's dazzled eye that it seemed as if a glass pane, hanging over the street and converging everything, were being smashed again and again with the utmost force.”
― Franz Kafka, quote from Amerika


“There could be no home for the Tillermans. Home free — Dicey would settle for a place to stay. Stay free.”

“He's gonna come at you first,” the boy says
“I know,” I answer. “You go to his--”

Gideon nodded, solemn and silent. "Yeah," he said, meeting their gazes. "Fuck me, right? Totally crap idea. I don't know what the hell I was thinking.”
― Lara Adrian, quote from Deeper Than Midnight

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.
