“I call you sunshine,' he whispers and brushes his knuckles down my face, 'because when you smile, you light me up inside.”
“You. Are. So. Amazing.” His soft lips brush over mine, back and forth, over and over again as he begins to move inside me. “Rock with me, baby.”
“Oh, sunshine,' I whisper and smile gently. 'Haven't you figured out that I'm completely in love with you?”
“You make me forget how to breathe.”
“Don’t cry,” he whispers. “Just let me do what I do best, baby. Let me take care of you.” “It’s hard for me to let people in, Leo.” “I’m already in,” he reminds me. “And I’m not going anywhere.”
“I’m afraid to fall.”
“I’ll catch you, baby.”
“So not a one night thing,” I whisper.
He chuckles softly and drapes an arm around me, pulling me closer to him.
“I’m glad you’re catching up.”
“I’m completely in love with her. I just don’t know how to tell her because I’m afraid that as soon as I do, she’ll run at full speed in the other direction.”
“-It's a date.
-Good. And baby ?
-You're not sleeping alone tonight.”
“You are everything I've ever wanted, Sam. More than music. More than anything.”
“What was that?” she whispers.
“If you have to ask, I didn’t do it right.”
“I don’t ever want you to run until your legs give out on you like this gain. The only time your legs will shake like this is if I’m inside you.”
“As long as I’m in the picture.”
“Leo, you are the picture.”
“I’ll take you hard, and soft, and every way in between.” He grips my face in his hands and looks down at me, his nose touching mine. “I’m going to fuck the shit out of you.”
Oh God, yes!
“And I’m going to make love to you until you’re shaking and don’t remember who you are.”
“I know you’re strong and independent and I respect that, but this is who I am, Sam. I take care of what is mine. You’re mine.”
“Let me do what I do best, baby. Let me take care of you”
“It’s hard for me to let people in, Leo.”
“I’m already in,” he reminds me. “And I’m not going anywhere.”
“If you’re going to touch my wife, you’d better put a shirt on. Dude, what the fuck are you doing with my sister?”
“Samantha, I’m not going to make love to you tonight. But I’m going to kiss the fuck out of you.”
“I don’t want to move in on another guys territory, and I don’t share.”
“I’m single.” I frown again. “But we aren’t…”
“Oh, I think we are,” he interrupts, his gaze challenging me. He grips my ass harder and stands, easily pulling me to my feet. “I can’t let go of you,” he whispers.”
“Maybe I’m turning into a pussy in my old age. The kicker? I don’t give a shit.”
“Now you’ve fucked a rock star. How do you feel?”
“Like everyone else you fuck. Used and ready for you to leave”
“The real point is this: We don't know where to go because we don't know what we are. Do you want to go back to living in a sewer-pipe? And eating other people's garbage? Because that's what rats do. But the fact is, we aren't rats anymore. We are something Dr. Schultz has made. Something new.”
“Look... we're getting to be old men, and we've spent our lives looking for the weaknesses in one another's systems. I can see through Eastern values just as you can see through our Western ones. Both of us, I am sure, have experienced ad nauseam the technical satisfactions of this wretched war. But now your own side is going to shoot you. Don't you think it's time to recognise that there is as little worth on your side as there is on mine?”
“¿Quién ha tomado la decisión que pone en movimiento esa cadena de envenenamientos, esa ola creciente de muerte que se va extendiendo como las ondas que se forman cuando se lanza una piedra sobre un estanque tranquilo? ¿Quién ha puesto en un platillo de la balanza las hojas que podrían haberse comido los escarabajos y en el otro los lastimosos montones de plumas de diversos colores que forman los restos sin vida de las aves que cayeron bajo el golpe generalizado de los venenos insecticidas? ¿Quién ha decidido (quién tiene derecho a decidir) en nombre de legiones sin cuento de personas que no fueron consultadas, que el valor supremo corresponde a un mundo sin insectos, aunque tenga que ser también un mundo estéril, privado de la gracia de una bandada de aves en vuelo? Esa decisión es la del autoritario revestido temporalmente de poder; ha sido tomada durante un momento de distracción de millones de personas para las que la belleza y el mundo ordenado de la naturaleza tienen todavía un significado que es profundo y perentorio.”
“Live as if you have faith,” she said, “and faith shall be
given to you.”
“I'll find you," he says, watching me with the eyes I remember. "I won't let you go again”
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.
