“Oh look,” she pointed to them, a fine example of two people in love. Ruin paused and looked from them to her several times before whispering, “You want to? Now?’ “Oh my God,” she muttered, shaking her head. “Those two are in love, I was trying to show you but of course you’d only think of sex.” Ruin followed her to the truck, still watching the couple while he climbed into the driver seat. “Are you sure we’re not in love? Pretty sure we look just like that, minus all the laughing.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3


“She snorted a little. “Most people’s eyes glaze over when I begin to ramble.” “That’s . . . not what happens with me.” “Oh really? What happens with you?” “My cock gets hard.” “Oh good grief, I should have known. Is there anything that doesn’t make your dick hard?” “That you do? Not very much.” “Well, tell me when you figure it out so I can practice it. I’m kind of tired of being followed around by a hard dick.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3

― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3

― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3

I don’t even know what I’d do, but something tells me I’d take all the time in the world to figure that out until it’s entirely and perfectly done.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3

― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3


“Okay, okay look.” She turned in her seat toward him. “The Old Testament is a bad example for all of this, and it’s not the testament I live by, we are under the New Covenant. And in there,” she pointed at him, “you are to have one wife. And love her. More than yourself even.” She nodded a lot. “Enough to die for her.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3


“She could hear the sound of frying and by the smell of it, he had the day’s vittles on. Which could be any number of innards from any number of animals, all of which Isadore had no taste for. Anything that operated as a filter in any capacity in nature, was not only dirty, it was dirty tasting to her.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3


“Did angels appear that way? They did in the Bible, Paul said, be sure to entertain stranger, because many had entertained angels unaware. If he never showed up again, she’d be inclined to think she’d hallucinated the entire thing, Jared and all.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3



“I am Caliber Creed, Messenger of the seventh district in the third heaven. And you, are Ruin, the chosen Carnificem, and woe is what you’re all about, it’s your purpose. Doom and gloom.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3


“The pain and torment, it was good. A good answer for that need in him, that need for…Isadore. Isadore was everything he hated. Her hope when things were so hopeless, her kindness when she should be wrathful, her love where hate was the justified response.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3


“Don’t lie.” The bite in his words hammered fear into her spine and his lips tightened over perfect teeth as he put his fingers to his temples, clenching his eyes shut. “Stop. Your fear… disgusts me. And your lie infuriates me!”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3


“The wind around them swirled in a mix of heat and ice as the breath of The Foul Horses left his body, morphing rapidly into seven stallions of fire.”
― Lucian Bane, quote from Ruin Box Set 1-3

“Toate mi s-au părut
cu neputinţă de suportat, ca şi cînd ai vrea să ţii mîna pe un fier înroşit.
Nici nu ştia că exişti cînd şi le-a făcut, iar faptul că ai pierdut momente
atît de preţioase din viaţa ei că a risipit atîta emoţie pentru altcineva
decît pentru tine, chiar dacă pentru nimeni, este de neînţeles, de
netrăit.”
― Mircea Cărtărescu, quote from Nostalgia


“His lips covered hers as he laid the gauze on her leg. Fiery pain shot through her flesh as his lips swallowed her cry, then replaced it with such amazing sensation she wanted to whimper in return. He licked her lips. He didn’t steal her kiss. He didn’t take it. He cajoled it from her.”
― Lora Leigh, quote from Elizabeth's Wolf


“Some people may opt out. Their child turns out to be whatever it is that they find impossible to face—for some, the wrong religion; for some, the wrong sexuality; for some, a drug addict. They close the door. Click. Like in mafia movies: “I have no son. He is dead to me.” I have a son and he will never be dead to me.”
― David Sheff, quote from Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction


“I’ve often thought it unfair that women are expected to stay at home when there’s a fight to be won. If a
woman has the strength to bear a child, she can swing a sword as well as any man.”
― Karen Hawkins, quote from How to Abduct a Highland Lord


“I broke his Bible box into bits and lit a fire and laid his body beside it and felt where the bones were broken in his back and chest and legs and licked the blood from his mouth and tried to give him my breath and I would have given him one of my legs and one of my arms and one of my kidneys and half of my liver and four pints of my blood and all easy for I had already given him my heart.”
― Jeanette Winterson, quote from The Stone Gods

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.
