“If I could,” he went on, “I would remain like this indefinitely—clasped by you, held inside you, a part of you—without moving at all. When we make love, I fight climax with everything I have. I don’t want to come; I do not want it to end. No matter how long I make it last, it isn’t nearly long enough. I am furious when I cannot hold back any longer. Why, Jess? If all I seek is the physical relief of natural lust, just as I would seek sleep or food, why would I deny myself?”

She turned her head and caught his mouth with hers, kissing him desperately.

“Tell me you understand,” he demanded, his lips moving beneath hers. “Tell me you feel it, too.”

“I feel you,” she breathed, as intoxicated by his ardency as she was by the finest claret. “You have become everything to me.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“I have wanted you for so long now,” he said roughly, “I’ve no memory of how it feels to be devoid of the craving. But you must know what you do. I need you to think of who you are and where you are and who I am. Think of how things will be once we’ve crossed this threshold. Think of how you will leave this cabin—disheveled and well fucked.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“I will see to this; you see to your sister. Be quick about it. It won’t be long before I come for you, and you’d best be ready, Jess, with my ring still gracing your hand. You won’t stay me then. I’ll drag you to Scotland in irons if I have to.”

He left her in a rush. As always, taking her heart with him.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“I keep what's mine, and I do not share.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“One day at a time. You rise, you eat, you bathe, and you talk to the few people you can tolerate while feeling so wretched. Over time, it hurts a little less. Then a little less. And so on...Until one morning, you will awake and realize the pain is only a memory. It will always be with you, but it will eventually lack the power to cripple you.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin



“If I was any more pleased with you, I would lose what little remains of my sanity.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“Why can men be boys all of their lives, but we women must grow old while we are yet young?”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“She is an ice princess, that one. Your brother had best pray she breeds quickly or risk losing his cock to frostbite.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“I require distance from the past in order to grasp the future.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“I supposed, perhaps, you miss the promise of what could have been, while at the same time you are grateful that what it was instead is over.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin



“I'm returning to England because the reason I stayed away no longer exists, and a reason to return has unexpectedly presented itself.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“He rubbed the spot over his chest that ached for Jessica. “And her regard will never alter or diminish. She knows the worst there is to know about me, yet she loves me in spite of my mistakes. No … I would say perhaps she loves me because of them; because of how they’ve shaped me.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“You will never be a burden to me. It is my privilege to be available to you whenever you may need me.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“Alistair caught her face in his hands, urging her to lean back and meet his gaze directly. “Jess.”
She stilled, registering the somberness in his tone.
Angling his head, he pressed his lips lightly to hers and breathed the words “I love you.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“My lust was fierce, you know that. I won’t say it was love, but it was deeper than flesh. My desire for you gave me hope that I could find joy in sex again, that I could approach the act with something beyond detachment and a need for base physical release. I had to have you, Jess, whatever the cost or effort.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin



“The feel of your big cock in me is delicious, but far more so when it's moving.”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“Instead, Hester had been presented at court,”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin


“She only wants my happiness,” Jessica murmured, offering him a reassuring smile from beneath the brim of her straw bonnet. “It may”
― Sylvia Day, quote from Seven Years to Sin

Popular quotes

“Avant le chariot du supermarché, le qu'est-ce qu'on va manger ce soir, les économies pour s'acheter un canapé, une chaîne hi-fi, un appart. Avant les couches, le petit seau et la pelle sur la plage, les hommes que je ne vois plus, les revues de consommateurs pour ne pas se faire entuber, le gigot qu'il aime par-dessus tout et le calcul réciproque des libertés perdues. Une période où l'on peut dîner d'un yaourt, faire sa valise en une demi-heure pour un week-end impromptu, parler toute une nuit. Lire un dimanche entier sous les couvertures. S'amollir dans un café, regarder les gens entrer et sortir, se sentir flotter entre ces existences anonymes. Faire la fête sans scrupule quand on a le cafard. Une période où les conversations des adultes installés paraissent venir d'un univers futile, presque ridicule, on se fiche des embouteillages, des morts de la Pentecôte, du prix du bifteck et de la météo. Personne ne vous colle aux semelles encore. Toutes les filles l'ont connue, cette période, plus ou moins longue, plus ou moins intense, mais défendu de s'en souvenir avec nostalgie. Quelle honte ! Oser regretter ce temps égoïste, où l'on n'était responsable que de soi, douteux, infantile. La vie de jeune fille, ça ne s'enterre pas, ni chanson ni folklore là-dessus, ça n'existe pas. Une période inutile.”
― Annie Ernaux, quote from A Frozen Woman


“Seriously, it's okay to be sad, but if you let sadness control your life, you'll never have one.”
― Anna Todd, quote from After Ever Happy


“Bir noktaya kadar bir sefalet düşüncesi ya da görünüşünün içimizdeki en temiz duyguları kendine çektiği çok doğru, çok da korkunç; ama bazı özel durumlarda, o noktayı geçince böyle olmuyor. Bunun her zaman insan yüreğinin doğuştan gelme bencilliğinden ötürü böyle olduğunu söyleyenler yanılıyorlar. Aşırı ve organik bir kötülüğü, hastalığı tedavi etmenin umutsuz olmasından ileri geliyor bu. Duyarlı biri için acıma çoğu zaman acı demektir. Böyle bir acımanın herhangi bir işe yaramadığı sonunda anlaşılınca, sağduyu insana bundan kurtulması gerektiğini söylüyor, uyarıyor.”
― Herman Melville, quote from Bartleby el escribiente


“My mother didn't like to hear profanity, and she certainly never spoke it. She had always told us that swearing was the sign of a lackluster vocabulary and, worse, a stunted imagination. "There are so many interesting words to use, along or in combination," she said, "that I don't know why anyone would fall back on one-syllable obscenities.”
― quote from The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio: How My Mother Raised 10 Kids on 25 Words or Less


“Our winters are very long here, very long and very monotonous. But we don't complain about it downstairs, we're shielded against the winter. Oh, spring does come eventually, and summer, and they last for a while, but now, looking back, spring and summer seem too short, as if they were not much more than a couple of days, and even on those days, no matter how lovely the day, it still snows occasionally.”
― Franz Kafka, quote from Slottet

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.
