“Since it seems your marking your territory , why don't you go ahead and pee on her while you're at it ? " ~ Cal”
“Yes, you made me want my future again. The only problem is, he was my future first." ~ Jay”

“My feelings are all over the place. Can you be bipolar in love?”
“What a conceited ass. I like eye candy as much as the next girl, but you soon learn the truth about candy." ~ Jay
He laughs louder this time. "What? That it melts in your mouth and not in your hand?" ~ Kane”
“I can wait. Honestly, Jay, I was planning on waiting forever for you." ~ JT”
“I can tell you, Jay, nothing that happens in this life is worth killing yourself over. Time passes, and you can decide to change your future. You don't let what some assholes say or do, direct you. In this life, it only matters what you do with it.”

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.
