“Because everybody lies. It's part of living in society. Don't get me wrong-I think it's necessary. The last thing anyone wants is to live in a society where total honesty prevails. Can you imagine the conversations? You're short and fat, one person might say, and the other might answer, I know. But you smell bad. It just wouldn't work. So people lie by omission all the time. People will tell you most of the story...and I've learned that the part they neglect to tell you is often the most important part. People hide the truth because they're afraid." -Jo”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven


“Because being comfortable meant she might lower her guard, and she could not let that happen.”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven


“If you love Alex now, then love him forever. Make him laugh again, and cherish the time you spend together. Take walks and ride your bikes, curl up on the couch and watch movies beneath a blanket. Make him breakfast, but don't spoil him. Let him make breakfast for you as well, so he can show you he thinks you're special. Kiss him and make love to him and consider yourself lucky for having met him, for he's the kind of man who'll prove you right.”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven


“Maybe I don't want to be defined by what I do. Maybe I'd like to be defined by what I am.”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven


“I truly believe that while love can hurt, love can also heal…”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven


“Love doesn't mean anything if you're not willing to make a commitment.”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven

― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven

― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven

“You never answered my question, about what you want to do with your life.

Maybe my dreams aren't that complicated. Maybe I think that a job is just a job.

What does that mean?

Maybe I don't want to be defined by what I do. Maybe I'd like to be defined by what I am.”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven

― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven


“He always apologized, and sometimes he would even cry because of the bruises he'd made on her arms or legs or her back. He would say that he hated what he'd done, but in the next breath tell her she'd deserved it. That if she'd been more careful, it wouldn't have happened. That if she'd been paying attention or hadn't been so stupid, he wouldn't have lost his temper.”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Safe Haven

“You're brave. You are the bravest person I know, and you are my friend. I don't care if you are imaginary.”
― Neil Gaiman, quote from The Graveyard Book


“But Shakespeare one gets acquainted with without knowing how. It is a part of an Englishman's constitution. His thoughts and beauties are so spread abroad that one touches them everywhere; one is intimate with him by instinct. No man of any brain can open at a good part of one of his plays without falling into the flow of his meaning immediately.”
― Jane Austen, quote from Mansfield Park


“Like all magnificent things, it's very simple.”
― Natalie Babbitt, quote from Tuck Everlasting


“I finally understood what true love meant...love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”
― Nicholas Sparks, quote from Dear John


“With patience and calm, persistence and stoicism, good handwriting and careful labeling, they would meet persecution, indignity, and hardship head-on.”
― Michael Chabon, quote from The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

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.
