“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. (I Corinthians 13: 7-8a ESV)”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV


“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV


“I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare [2] and not for evil,  x to give you a future and a hope. 12 y Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me,  y and I will hear you. 13[†] z You will seek me and find me, when you seek me  a with all your heart.”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV


“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For  a what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or  b what fellowship has light with darkness?”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV


“By defining faith (Gk. pistis) as “assurance” and “conviction,” the author indicates that biblical faith is not a vague hope grounded in imaginary, wishful thinking. Instead, faith is a settled confidence that something in the future—something that is not yet seen but has been promised by God—will actually come to pass because God will bring it about. Thus biblical faith is not blind trust in the face of contrary evidence, not an unknowable “leap in the dark”; rather, biblical faith is a confident trust in the eternal God who is all-powerful, infinitely wise, eternally trustworthy—the God who has revealed himself in his word and in the person of Jesus Christ, whose promises have proven true from generation to generation, and who will “never leave nor forsake” his own”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV



“If I have the gift of the prophecy, and can fathom all mystery's and knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”

― quote from Study Bible-ESV


“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,         neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.     9  p For as the heavens are higher than the earth,         so are my ways higher than your ways         and my thoughts than your thoughts.     10[†]  q “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven         and do not return there but water the earth,     making it bring forth and sprout,          r giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,     11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;         it shall not return to me empty,     but  s it shall accomplish that which I purpose,         and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV

― quote from Study Bible-ESV



“Come now,  n let us reason [3] together, says the LORD:     though your sins are like scarlet,         they shall be as  o white as snow;     though they are red like crimson,         they shall become like wool.”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV

― quote from Study Bible-ESV


“ACTS 2 ‡†When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. 2†And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3†And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested [1] on each one of them. 4†And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5†Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6†And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. 7And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? 9‡Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, 11both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV



“LUKE 14 [†]One Sabbath,  p when he went to dine at the house of a ruler of the Pharisees, they were  q watching him carefully. 2[†]And behold, there was a man before him who had dropsy. 3[†]And Jesus responded to  r the lawyers and Pharisees, saying,  s “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath, or not?” 4[†]But they remained silent. Then he took him and healed him and sent him away. 5[†]And he said to them,  t “Which of you, having a son [1] or an ox that has fallen into a well on a Sabbath day, will not immediately pull him out?” 6[†] u And they could not reply to these things.”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV


“Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant  q controversies; you know that they breed quarrels.”

The Fellowship of the Believers 42‡†And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43†And awe [4] came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44†And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45†And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47†praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.”
― quote from Study Bible-ESV

“There is irony in the book of Job, due to the fact that God seems both too close and too far away. On the one hand, Job complains that God is watching him every moment so that he cannot even swallow his spit (7:19). On the other hand, Job finds God elusive, feeling that he cannot be found (9:11).”

“Tears must have been invented for that reason.”
― Affinity Konar, quote from Mischling


“Damned mating heat. Lawe is threatening to join a monastery and Rule's threatening to quit. Why don't you two try to show the younger guys it can be fun instead of taking a note out of everyone else's books and letting it drive you insane?

― David Simon, quote from Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets


“Index investing is an investment strategy that Walter Mitty would love. It takes very little investment knowledge, no skill, practically no time or effort-and outperforms about 80 percent of all investors. It allows you to spend your time working, playing, or doing anything else while your nest egg compounds on autopilot. It's about as difficult as breathing and about as time consuming as going to a fast-food restaurant once a year.”
― quote from The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing

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.
