“Cheating isn’t a mistake; it’s a choice.”
“My life was far from Sex and the City. It was more like Sex and the Pity. Or Sex and the Shitty.”
“Sometimes the words that are left unspoken are the ones that most needed to be said.”
“Don't be afraid to get hurt. It's far better than never experiencing anything earth-shattering. Even temporary joy is better than nothing at all.”
“My boyfriend recently asked me to marry him. I said yes. He’s the sweetest, kindest man I’ve ever known. Problem is, the diamond he gave me was smaller than I hoped for. I don’t really want to hurt his feelings. I need to know a polite way to express my disappointment. –Lori, Manhattan God has the same dilemma when it comes to you, sweetheart. P.S. When your fiancé dumps your selfish ass, give him my number. Answering”
“I’ll go along with the no-sex thing, but mark my words. When the time comes, I’m not gonna be the one begging for it.”
“Both our dishes looked more like art when they arrived. “I hate to eat it; it’s so beautiful.” “I have the opposite problem. It’s so beautiful; I can’t wait to eat it.” His smirk told me his comment had nothing to do with his fancy looking dinner. I”
“It would be my pleasure to leave the gentleman at the door and fuck you four ways dirty.”
“There are two sides to that man. Thoughtless and thoughtful. Not sure he got the in-between gene.”
“Не искам да съм сам, Сорая. Омръзна ми да съм сам. Искам те в проклетото ми легло тази вечер. Не трябва да правим нищо. Просто...искам да те държа в прегръдките си докато заспя.”
“You terrify me, Soraya.”
“But that’s the very reason that I just know.”
“That this could be the real thing.”
“Gorgeous, arrogant and pissed off?” I chuckled a little. “Yes, that’s him.” “His name is Graham Morgan, and I know just where you should bring the phone.” I fished a pen from my purse. “Okay.” “Are you anywhere near the 1 train?” “I’m not too far.” “Okay. Well, hop on the 1 and take that all the way downtown. Pass Rector Street and get off at the South Ferry Terminal.” “Okay. I can do that.” “Once you’re off. Take a right on Whitehall and then a left on South Street.” I knew the area and tried to visualize the buildings around there. It was a pretty commercial neighborhood. “Won’t that take me to the East River?” “Exactly. Toss that asshole’s phone in, and forget you ever saw the man.” The phone line went dead.”
“He’s a good man. Fiercely loyal and loves his family. Very protective of his heart. But once he gives it, he doesn’t take it back.”
“You can fix the rest. Pry the stick out of his ass and hit him over the head with it a few times. He’s smart. He’ll figure it out real quick.”
“Now that, I can do.”
“I HAD PLANNED TO GIVE the phone back this morning. No, really. I did. Then again, I also planned to finish college. And travel the world.”
“Не се страхувай да бъдеш наранена. По-добре е отколкото никога да не изпиташ нещо, което да те разтресе из основи. Дори временната радост е по-добре от нищо. Страх те е да не те наранят, както мен ме е страх да умра. Това не означава, че няма да изживея пълноценно всеки ден.”
“Исках да я притежавам, но истината беше, че...тя вече притежаваше мен.”
“I know what I want.”
“Graham…things can change.”
“I need you, Soraya. I’ve never said that to another woman in my life.” I leaned my forehead against her and whispered, “I need you.”
“My boyfriend had been fucked over by Barbie and Ken. And I was more like the Bratz doll rebound. My”
“Don’t be afraid to get hurt. It’s far better than never experiencing anything earth-shattering. Even temporary joy is better than nothing at all.”
“The only happy ending he’ll be getting is from me, bitch. A few minutes later, I’d been so preoccupied thinking about what those women were saying that I hadn’t noticed Graham sneak up behind me to plant a kiss on my neck. The gossipers had taken notice, though. Their eyes were practically bugging out of their heads. Their little happily-ever-after fantasy was quickly challenged by Graham’s public display of affection with someone they probably assumed was working the party. I couldn’t help myself when I turned to them and smiled. “Plot twist.”
“You're afraid of getting hurt like I'm afraid to die. It doesn't mean I'm not going to live every day to its fullest.”
“If you were with me, you wouldn’t care where your cell phone was. Soraya:”
“You have no idea how dangerous I am when I want something. I will stop at nothing to get it. And there’s nothing more that I want right now than you.”
“You want to fight with me?
Graham tugged at his tie, loosening it. “I find it turns me on.”
“I got you what I like since I wasn’t sure what you liked.”
“I’ll eat whatever you feed me.”
“In that case…”
A dirty grin crossed his face. “Don’t think I won’t hold you down on this couch and feast on you until my entire staff knows you’re a religious girl.”
“Yes. You’re a cunt. C you next Tuesday, Dana! My”
“Never in my life had I ever reacted to a man this way. Never had I felt so much fear and desire at the very same time.”
“Mind? I’m an arrogant asshole. I quite like it when others envy what I have.”
“- Ти ме плашиш до смърт, Сорая.
- И ти мен.
- Но това е причината да знам.
- Да знаеш какво.
- Да знам, че това между нас може да е нещо много истинско.”
“All mothers breed dead children.
They shall, perhaps, live later.
When no longer dead, they are born
Not—by coincidence, by choice.”
“Yo finjo. Llevo haciéndolo toda la vida. Lo he hecho tanto tiempo que ya no sé quién soy.”
“The past is as ephemeral as the future—it’s all perspective and smoke and mirrors.”
“Nettie's one-eyed glare was flat, her patience gone. "I'm the feller that's going to kill you."
"You're not a feller."
"That's not yours to decide.”
“It felt like I’d lost something I didn’t know I wanted. And I realized you could get used to anything—even being alone for years—right until the moment you touched something better than what you had.”
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.
