“Il suffit d’une minuscule graine d’espoir pour planter tout un champ de bonheur… et d’un peu de patience pour lui laisser le temps de pousser.”
“[Dieu:] Est-ce vraiment moi qui ai inventé l'amour, ou est-ce l'amour qui m'a inventé?”
“Cuceririle amoroase sunt cele mai egoiste dintre cruciade.”
“Savoir simplement que tu es là quelque part sur cette terre sera, dans mon enfer, mon petit coin de paradis.”
“– Tu t'es beaucoup ennuyée?
– Soixante-quatre voitures sont passées dans ta rue, dont dix-neuf vertes!”
“Fiecare oglindă îţi oferă imaginea unui spectacol jucat fără niciun spectator, în care actriţa e propria-ţi mizerie.”
“Lucrul cel mai bun din noi e ascuns pe undeva şi trebuie să-i dăm o mână de ajutor ca să-şi deschidă aripile, nu să le sufoce.”
“L'amore è una particella di speranza, l'eterno rinnovarsi del mondo, il sentiero della terra promessa, colui che trova la sua metà diventi più completo dell'umanità intera. non è l'uomo che è unico in se stesso, è nel momento in cui comincia ad amare che lo diventa.”
“But that’s the trouble with moments—they end." ~Narrator”
“PS. Docendo discimus. (Latin. By teaching, we learn.)”
“Courage overcomes, but does not replace, fear. Joy overcomes, but does not replace, pain.”
“There is only one reality, but there are many ways that reality can be interpreted.”
“Forget trying to figure out the right rules that will keep you safe forever; there is no safe forever. Instead, go into the world seeking to treat others with compassion whenever you touch them. Try to leave people better than when you found them. Communicate your needs. Understand and advocate for your boundaries. And look for other people who will do the same. Trust them when they say they love you; where communication and compassion exist, you don't need rules to keep you safe. We don't learn how to be compassionate by disenfranchising other people; we learn how to be compassionate by practicing compassion. Limited-duration”
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.
