“Some of the best things in life are the unexplainable.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“Why do you have eawings in yowr boobs?” she asks, staring at my nipple rings. Jesus, is this kid for real? “Guys don’t have boobs,” I tell her firmly. “Yes, dey do, dey’re just wittle ones.” “No, they’re called nipples, not boobs.” She shrugs. “Fine. Why do you have eawings in dem?” I think about it for a minute, not knowing how to reply, so I opt for the simple truth. “Because I wanted to.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed. It soothes the mind and gives it rest. It heals the heart and makes it whole. It flows from heaven to heal the soul.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“you have got to be shitting me. You too? Why is it every time someone new comes here, they belong to one of you assholes?”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“You know…the kiss. The one you feel through your whole body as soon as your lips touch theirs and everything that is going on around you falls away. You could be in the busiest, noisiest place but everything becomes silent and time seems to stand still. It’s as if, in that moment, you’re the only two people on the planet. It’s that one kiss that you will remember for the rest of your life and you will never have another one like it unless it’s with that same person because it was the kiss.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“We move quickly, shoving the empty wrappers out of sight. I hear her faint footsteps climb the stairs and realize I still have my burger in hand. Before I can think better of it, I pull the collar of Ruthie’s top open and throw it down her shirt.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“I never needed anything to remember you by, Red, I would have never forgotten you.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“Something softer flashes in his gaze right before he says: “That’s because you’re mine, Red. You always have been, even when you were miles away, and every part of you knows it.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“Whatever. If she’s only here to get laid then the bitch is barking up the wrong tree. Because unless she has green eyes, red hair and flawless skin with a light dusting of freckles, then my dick does not want it… Stupid fucking dick.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“I know I don’t deserve this,” he says roughly, “but I’m going to be a selfish bastard and take it. Because I’ve been dying to kiss, taste and fuck every inch of you since I found you singing in that field a week ago.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“Digging my phone out of my pocket, I see it’s from Evans. Pain in my ass: Where the fuck are you? I’m serious. Get your ass here or I will fuck you up.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“Remember what happened last time, when someone wanted to get revenge on me when I made them look bad?” Pain and fury flashes in his gaze before he shakes his head. “Never again, Red. You hear me? Never fucking again.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“careful how much you push me, Red. You’re fucking lucky we are in a park full of kids right now. That’s about the only thing saving you at the moment.”
― K.C. Lynn, quote from Resisting Temptation

“What have we been doing all these centuries but trying to call God back to the mountain, or, failing that, raise a peep out of anything that isn't us? What is the difference between a cathedral and a physics lab? Are not they both saying: Hello? We spy on whales and on interstellar radio objects; we starve ourselves and pray till we're blue.”
― Annie Dillard, quote from Teaching a Stone to Talk: Expeditions and Encounters

“This is the first day of the rest of my life. So why is my hair sticking up like a cockerel?”
― Louise Rennison, quote from Love Is a Many Trousered Thing

“Un guerrero se define por momentos", dijo Aiden. "Un solo momento puede hacerte un guerrero. Un guerrero se define también por las decisiones. Por su coraje. Pero un guerrero también es alguien normal. No puedes ser un guerrero a cada momento. Pero, el espíritu de un guerrero siempre está presente.”
― Morgan Rice, quote from Desired

“So, I suppose you just have a sense of where it is. And you don’t have to be precise, is that it?”
“Allah is great. He has such wide shoulders.”
Carl stuck out his lower lip in a pout. Of course Allah did. What was he thinking, anyway?”
― Jussi Adler-Olsen, quote from The Keeper of Lost Causes

“[T]he forget-me-not gray of an eye squinting at an incipient kiss, the placid expression of your ears when you would lift up your hair … how can I reconcile myself to your disappearance, to this gaping hole, into which slides everything—my whole life, wet gravel, objects, and habits—and what tombal railings can prevent me from tumbling, with silent relish, into this abyss? Vertigo of the soul.

from “Ultima Thule”
― Vladimir Nabokov, quote from The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov

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 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.
