“I’M SO GLAD you’re not dumb, Yaz,” Neela said. Yazeed shot her a sidelong glace. “I thought you were going to say dead.” “That, too.”
“I want to have hope, I can’t help it, but I’m almost afraid to,” Serafina”
“Let no rough waters rend apart
Two who have become one heart.
For love's no love that can't withstand
A rogue wave breaking on the sand.”
“Love must be constant, not ebb and flow,
Like storms and frets, tides high and low.
For love's not love if one must force
The beloved one to stay the course.”
“As sure as the seabirds in flight,
As sure as the endless deep blue,
My love is as certain as sunrise.
I vow it will keep us both true.”
“The love of the sea folk is my strength. That was it. The answer she needed. It had been there all along. She heard Thalassa’s voice now: A ruler’s greatest power comes from her heart—from the love she bears her subjects, and the love they bear her. Vrăja’s: Nothing is more powerful than love. And Elena’s: Love’s the greatest magic of all.”
“Mfeme cracked his knuckles. "I'll ask you again: where is the talisman?"
"And I'll tell you again. I have no idea," Ling said.
"Do you think I'm joking? I'll cut you ears off and throw them to the sharks."
"Good. I won't have to listen to you anymore.”
“I'm so glad you're not dumb, Yaz," Neela said.
Yazeed shot her a sidelong glance. " I thought you were going to say dead."
“Sera was beginning to see that love wasn't pretty words and easy promises. Love was hard. It challenged you and changed you. It filled your heart and sometimes hardened it too. Love demanded sacrifices. She'd made many over the last few weeks, and knew she would be called upon to make many more.”
“She placed her hands at the sides of her enormous bosom and hiked it up. “Capito?” she said. “Make them bigger? They’re already up under my chin in this thing as it is!” “Si! Maggiore! Bigger!” Filomena said. Serafina tightened the bustier, then looked down at her cleavage. “It looks like I have two sea mounts stuck on the front of me. With an abyss between them,” she said. She peered at her reflection in the pool water. “All I can see is my chest!” “Buono! This is what soldati will see, too,” Filomena said. “Not the face.” She”
“Love flourishes in expectation. Expectation strolls through the spacious fields of Time towards Opportunity.”
“Isn't love any fun? Marjorie said.
"No," Nick said.”
“What is your name?”
“Finally decided to ask, eh?” Hadrian chuckled.
“I will need to know if I am going to book you passage.”
“I can take care of that myself. Assuming, of course, you are actually taking me to a barge and not just to some dark corner where you’ll clunk me on the head and do a more thorough job of robbing me.”
Pickles looked hurt. “I would do no such thing. Do you think me such a fool? First, I have seen what you do to people who try to clunk you on the head . Second, we have already passed a dozen perfectly dark corners.”
“Anyway, what can one do here? I am seriously thinking of running away and joining the Foreign Legion or the North-West Mounted Police—whichever work the shorter hours.”
“Good God, what men can do to their brains when their cocks are hard. It is truly amazing.”
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.
