“But who ever said the easiest path
is the one you should choose?”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Not sure there's been a single day of my life when everything was totally fine. And now? The best I can say is once in a while I'm not somersaulting in chaos.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Eventually, it becomes a matter of scale. When the good outweighs the bad, you stay. When the bad is the only thing you notice anymore, you think about your future, or what’s left of it, consider options.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“I think it’s easy
to confuse love with other things.
Lust, for one. Need, for another”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“You know how they say revenge is best served up cold? I'd say it's best not served up at all. Revenge is a great motivator, but it doesn't help achieve the desired results. I've seen guys lose buddies, then go off half-cocked, piss fuel running through their veins. Things never turned out well.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Love is a fragile thing, easily destroyed by dishonesty.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble

“Mistakes are easy to come by. Why make the same one twice?”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Humans aren't inherently good- a ludicrous proposition. Instinctively, people are barbarians. Cannibals, even. They eat each other alive, get off on torture, inflicting pain. This is not the image of the Gospel God. If God is love, and God is infinite, love would by definition be infinite. But love, for most, is a means to an end, and even in its purest form, it is fleeting. Not infinite.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Her halo was never gold, or it couldn't have rusted so completely.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Some say death is a doorway,
belief the key. Others claim you only
have to stumble across the threshold
to glimpse a hundred billion universes
in the blink of single silver shard.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Why does time erode relationships? Is there a way to avoid its relentless lapping? Is any love strong enough to withstand the chipping away?”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“I’m holding Eden in my hands, and it makes me glad there is no God to take this garden away from me.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“Forgive myself for what, exactly, you bastard internal voice?”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble


“God is an invention of mankind, an excuse to exist, and to thrive, in a subhuman state.”
― Ellen Hopkins, quote from Rumble

“There is no enough.’ Tarin flicked her indicator on, the clicking noise filling the car as she merged on to the motorway. ‘You seem to be forgetting that she’s in a clinical facility getting professional help. Which is great, obviously. Let them worry about how to deal with depression. You’re going to visit your friend, remember? Yes, she’s a patient, but she’s not your patient. So for God’s sake, don’t treat her like one.”
― Sara Barnard, quote from Beautiful Broken Things

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 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.
