“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. —JOHN 1:5 (ESV)”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“No amount of lies, no matter how cleverly couched, will ever outstrip or outlast God’s truth, nor will any lie ever outreach His grace. The Lord knows those who are His, His sheep hear His voice, and the arm of the Lord is never so short that He cannot save.”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“These humans are only of flesh, of mud, and I suggest there is one force stronger than their zeal for God: their own self-righteousness! We will make them proud, pure in their own eyes, vindictive, unjust judges over each other, and stir up such a noise among them that the simplest prayer will not be uttered!”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“I will go to the saints first. Already there is plenty in Bacon’s Corner for them to be upset about, plenty to divide them. I will keep them busy censuring and smiting each other, and then their hearts will be far from praying.” He”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“TAL HAD TO laugh. Hardly presentable! Wasn’t it strange, the way humans looked at themselves with eyes of flesh and not of the Spirit? Certainly that dear woman had been through mire and filth of every degree; she was scarred, exhausted, ragged, and dirty. But to the angels, she appeared as God Himself saw her, just as any other redeemed saint of the living God: pure, shining, clean, dressed in garments as white as snow.”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“Nevertheless, as we follow the invisible warfare swirling around the life of one wounded, searching sinner, the core message rings clear: No amount of lies, no matter how cleverly couched, will ever outstrip or outlast God’s truth, nor will any lie ever outreach His grace. The Lord knows those who are His, His sheep hear His voice, and the arm of”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“The Strongman continued his mental review. “And the petty little saints in the town were . . . obscure, don’t you see, far from help, far from the mainstream, alone amid the rolling farmlands . . . unknown. It was a perfect place to begin the process.” His beastly face grew tight and bitter. “Until they started praying. Until they ceased being so comfortable and started weeping before God! Until they began to reclaim the power of the . . .” The Strongman sealed his lips. “The Cross?” the aide volunteered.”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“But why not? He deserved it. It took years to take control of this school—to oust the resisters, to implant the sympathizers, to blind the parents to what was happening to their children. It was no small task.”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“I am free. I am ransomed. I've never felt this way before, like a slave set free who was born a slave and never knew what freedom was like.”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness


“Without men to do your killing, the woman will have power over you!” “She doesn’t know that!”
― Frank E. Peretti, quote from Piercing the Darkness

Popular quotes

“Оо-о, това ще е нещо знаменито! Да се отприщиш и да престанеш да се правиш на такъв-онакъв; да се отпушиш напълно, да ревеш, да виеш, да надаваш тарзански викове, да прескачаш зидове или да ги пробиваш, да плюеш на всеки, да пикаеш на всеки, който посмее да се доближи! Господи, какво по-хубаво от това! И защо още не съм го направил? Страдах достатъчно и ако реша, мога да го направя. Никой не може копче да ми каже. ”
― William Wharton, quote from Birdy


“I also think Valkyire’s ex-boyfriend will come in handy here.”
Ravel frowned, “The dead vampire?”
Valkyrie glared at him, “I think he means Fletcher.”
“Oh. Sorry.”
“Caelen was never my boyfriend.”
“I didn’t mean to-“
“We never talk about Caelen,” Ghastly muttered.”
“I’m really sorry, Valkyrie, Ravel said. “Fletcher’s great. He’s wonderful. I’m sure he’d be delighted to help, and having a teleporter here will certainly solve some problems. We’ll arrange that, we’ll get him over to you, start the ball rolling, as it were. Once again, sorry about bringing up the vampire.”
Ghastly shot him a look whispered, “Why do you keep talking about him?”
“I can’t help it,” Ravel whispered back. “Now he’s all I can think about.”
“You realise,” Valkyrie said, “that we can hear you both perfectly well.”
― Derek Landy, quote from Kingdom of the Wicked


“Giữa những vì sao, giữa những áng mây êm, giữa những núi đồi viền lấy bầu trời với nhiều hình bóng tráng lệ của các chòm cây tùng bách nhọt hoắt, giữa những đốm trăng lọt qua lá cành, giữa những tòa kiến trúc sừng sững long lanh trắng toát - giữa tất cả những cái đó, vẻ đẹp tươi sáng trong sự phản trắc do Uiko làm tôi say mê.”
― Yukio Mishima, quote from The Temple of the Golden Pavilion


“When I was young, the future was where all the good stuff was kept, the party clothes, the pretty china, the family silver, the grown-up jobs. The future was a land of its own, and we couldn't wait to get there. Not that youth wasn't great, but it came with disadvantages; I remember the feeling I was missing something really good that was going on somewhere else, somewhere I wasn't. I remember feeling life passing me by. I remember impatience. I don't feel that way now.”
― quote from A Three Dog Life


“the Fate had moved, or had been moved, thirty light years in less than a picosecond.”
― Iain M. Banks, quote from Excession

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.
