― C.J. Sansom, quote from Revelation


“It has driven men to extremes, to the impious arrogance of believing they alone can comprehend the vast mysteries of Scripture, let alone the mind of God.

― C.J. Sansom, quote from Revelation

“Kale turned away from me and stepped to Alex. "I know exactly what that means, and if you say it again, I'll touch you."

― Makoto Shinkai, quote from 5 Centimeters per Second


“Cuando se ha pasado de los treinta años, aún puede sentirse un intenso afecto y también inspirarlo, pero ¡ay del hombre que a esta edad quiere mezclarse en los juegos de los amores juveniles! Ya no encontramos la alegría en sus labios, la tierna felicidad en sus ojos, la deliciosa sinrazón en su lenguaje. Busca la manera de agradar y ya no posee el instinto fácil que la inspira. Razona el amor. Las más maliciosas y juguetonas desprecian sus lecciones y huyen con raudo vuelo a buscar la compañía de los jóvenes.”
― Jan Potocki, quote from The Manuscript Found in Saragossa


“He wanted Ty with him, wanted him badly. Needed him as a partner, and not just at work. Craved him as a lover more than he’d ever jonesed over heroin. Connected with him in so many ways that Zane couldn’t see a way to untangle himself and didn’t even want to try”
― Abigail Roux, quote from Divide & Conquer

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.
