“close your eyes and enjoy the silence”
“No matter what will happened ,you really are my sweet girl .Nothing will change that”
“You’re making me question everything I thought I knew.”
“This beautiful, pure girl has fallen in love with the big bad wolf.”
“I believe that you’re the master of your own destiny – your own decisions and actions are what influence your life course. But unfortunately, the decisions and actions of others impact this course, too, and sometimes you’re powerless to prevent it.”
“I want to surrender myself to you completely, Livy. I want to be yours. You are my perfect.”
“…but something is speaking and it’s neither Miller nor I. It’s desire.”
“Olivia Taylor, if I have you, then I’ll be smiling for the rest of my life.”
“I’m going to take you home and worship you.”
“A small part of my mind is willing me to walk away now before he has the opportunity to do just that to me, but I find it easy to ignore it.”
“Any man who’s done anything less than worship you should be fucking shot!”
“It will determine whether I fuck you hard immediately, or break you in first.”
“His whole being is a ridiculously strong magnet to my eyes, and I’m beginning to give up trying to resist him. It seems my eyes are craving him as much as my body.”
“His eyes are smiling, and then like a sun breaking through the gray clouds on an overcast, smoggy day in London, his mouth smiles, too—his perfectly straight, white teeth on full display, his eyes sparkling wildly. He accepts me. All of me.”
“But it’s happening and I think we’re both powerless to stop it.”
“He unearthed something in me, Nan. It’ll never go anywhere, but I’m glad I met him because he’s made me realize what life could be if I let it.”
“He keeps saying he doesn’t want to get personal, yet he has no problem asking me personal questions or invading my personal space,”
“but he was soon back, cuddling up behind me.”
“Miller’s bringing his buns!” I shout back. “But I was going to make my pineapple upside-down cake!” I laugh to myself, all the way to work.”
“Fucking hell, Livy. If you’re going to nab a decent bloke, then you need to be a little more enthusiastic.” She’s”
“See, that’s what I want more of. A little spunk!’
‘Fuck off!’ I yell, shocking myself with my vulgar language.
‘Ooh, yes, carry on, you filthy-mouthed bitch!’
I gasp and swing around, finding him grinning from ear to ear. ‘Wanker.’
He grins some more. ‘Dog.’
‘Shirt-lifter,’ I retort.
I recoil, horrified. ‘I am not a tart!”
“See, that’s what I want more of. A little spunk!"
"Fuck off!" I yell, shocking myself with my vulgar language.
"Ooh, yes, carry on, you filthy-mouthed bitch!"
I gasp and swing around, finding him grinning from ear to ear. "Wanker."
He grins some more. "Dog."
"Shirt-lifter," I retort.
I recoil, horrified. "I am not a tart!”
“Every time I touch you,’ he whispers, ‘I feel I need to do it with the utmost care.’ ‘Why?’ I ask quietly, a little perplexed. He takes another long pull of air and turns his eyes to me, blinking slowly. ‘Because I’m frightened you might turn to dust.’ His admission chokes me. ‘I won’t turn to dust.’ ‘You might,’ he murmurs. ‘What would I do?’ His eyes scan my face, and I’m shocked to see nothing but complete seriousness, maybe even a little fear.”
“W-we both know your life would be so much simpler without me! I am just a thorn in your paw."
He nodded easily. "And it reminds me of you - every move I make, I think of you."
My lips parted. Again I realized that he was the only thing in my life that made me feel sane, made me want to fight for a future.
"Evangeline, I've got to feel you with my every step." His shaking hand closed over my nape, squeezing. "Or I go a little crazy, me.”
“Dorian used to watch you like a starving man who wants meat. Now he looks at you like he wants seconds.”
“Lucivar winced. "She guzzled half the flask — and it wasn't one of his home brews, it was the concoction you created."
Jaenelle’s eyes widened. “You let her drink a ‘gravedigger’?”
“No no no,” Wilhelmina said, shaking her head. “You shouldn’t ever drink a gravedigger until he’s had a bath.” She smiled placidly when Jaenelle and Lucivar just stared at her.
“Mother Night,” Lucivar muttered.
“Do you know that song?” Wilhelmina asked Jaenelle.”
“Have you ever wanted something that you knew was bad for you? Something that you ached for so much you could think of nothing else? [Wren]”
“«I am tired,» he said. «I did a lot today. That is, I did something. The only thing I have ever done. I pressed a button. It took the entire will power, the accumulated strength of my entire existence, to press one damned OFF button.»
«You have lived well,» the Alien said.”
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.
