“His words are nothing more than mist and sunshine, impossible to hold down.”
“May you find good hunting, swift running, and shelter when you sleep. (Leafpool to Ashfur, page 1)”
“There will be three, kin of your kin..." Jayfeather's voice shook as he wondered if he could possibly be right. "Cloudtail is Firestar's kin, Whitewing is Cloudtail's daughter, and now Dovekit and Ivykit...Don't you see? The prophecy isn't over! We aren't the only kin of Firestar's kin. It doesn't matter which of Whitewing's kits is the one. There are still three of us!
“..in the harshest days of leaf-bare clanmate turns upon clanmate danger lurks behind familiar faces and one more warrior may be lost forever”
“While Brambleclaw paused to taste the air, she crouched down beside one of the puddles and touched the ice with her tongue, grateful for the tingling freshness. “Come on,” the Clan deputy meowed. “This way.” Hollyleaf tried to jump up, only to stop with a strangled cry of dismay. Her tongue had frozen to the ice; a sharp pain shot through it as she tried to wrench herself free. “What’s the matter?” Lionblaze asked. “My tongue . . .” Hollyleaf could hardly get the words out. “It’th thtuck!” Lionblaze snorted as he suppressed a mrrow of laughter. Birchfall stooped down until he was nose to nose with Hollyleaf; irritation swelled inside her when she saw amusement dancing in his eyes. “It’th not funny!” she mumbled as clearly as she could with her tongue plastered to the ice. “Stand back.” Brackenfur’s calm voice came from behind Hollyleaf. “Let me have a look.” He leaned beside Birchfall, gently shouldering the younger cat out of the way. “Well, you’re certainly stuck,” he went on. Hollyleaf could tell that he was struggling not to laugh, too. “I suppose we could break off the ice. Then you’d have to carry it until it melts.” “Hey, you’ve discovered a new way to fetch water for the elders!” Hazeltail put in. Her pelt itching with frustration, Hollyleaf tried again to wrench her tongue free, only getting another stab of pain for her efforts. “It hurt-th! Do thomething!” She pictured herself crouched on the hard ground with her tongue stretched out, and suddenly she felt laughter bubbling up inside her. I guess I do look pretty funny. She couldn’t remember the last time she had found anything to laugh at.”
“— Погоди, я тебе покажу! Стану такой ворчливой и капризной старейшиной, что по сравнению со мной Кисточка покажется ласковой королевой!
— Ну да, и ежи полетят, — пробасил Крутобок.”
“— Небесные коты! — снова фыркнул Пурди. — Да скорее ежи полетят, чем я поверю в эти сказочки.”
“Холодная радость зажглась в глубине янтарных глаз Сола.
— Думаете, племя Теней сможет оправдаться? Эти тупые коты способны только верить в детские сказочки о мертвых котиках, которые решат все их проблемы и придут на помощь в трудную пору! Они до сих пор верят в дурацкие знаки, идиоты!”
“— Это не трудно! — крикнула Джинго, свесив голову вниз и призывно помахивая хвостом.
— Ага, как же! — пробурчал Березовик. — Так же нетрудно, как ежу взлететь орлом!”
“— Надеюсь, Листвичка довольна собой, — проворчал он, укладываясь на свою подстилку. — Завтра я не смогу пошевелить лапой, и проку от меня будет, как от больного ежа!”
“Джинго кивнула, а когда остальные патрульные тепло попрощались с ней, она повернулась и побежала вдоль стены в обратную сторону.
— До свидания, Джингозвездая, — прошептал Ежевика так тихо, что удаляющаяся кошка вряд ли могла его услышать. — Пусть Звездное племя освещает твой путь.”
“— Если бы Уголек повздорил с кем-нибудь из Грозовых котов, мы бы непременно об этом узнали! — горячо закивал Бурый. — Такое нельзя скрыть от племени! У нас же каждый на виду!
«Ага, как же! И еще у нас над оврагом ежи летают!»”
“— Все может быть, — пробурчал Ягодник.
— Ну конечно! Порой и ежи летают, — усмехнулся Дым.”
“Everything added up. Which cat could depend on Squirrelflight’s loyalty, knowing she would carry out the deception for moons and moons, even if it meant lying to her own mate? Which cat had always poured out love and concern around him and his littermates? Which cat could never admit that she had borne kits? Leafpool! Leafpool is our mother!”
“What happens if he kills me here? Will I be really dead?”
“Maybe it’s best that he stayed behind, she thought. It’s not like he can look for Sol himself.”
“In the Twoleg nests around them, lights began to appear in the dark holes in the walls. Lionblaze heard a Twoleg shouting angrily, but the dogs went on barking and pounding at the fence. His belly lurched when he saw that the small brown-and-white dog had stuck its head through the gap and the wood around it was starting to splinter. The dark tabby she-cat darted forward and slashed her claws at the dog’s nose. Yelping, it pulled back.”
“Cats who didn’t want to attack WindClan, Lionblaze realized. Firestar isn’t taking any risks.”
“Dads are like noses, her tweet says. They’re always in your face.
Dads aren’t like noses, I tweet back. You’re not allowed to pick them.”
“The average man is both better informed and less corruptible in the decisions he makes as a consumer than as a voter at political elections.”
“He laughed and answered, "In a way, yes! My darling boy! But you are young and have much to learn. "Mature love is union which preserves one's integrity, one's individuality. In love the paradox is that two beings become one and yet their individuality remains intact.”
“Well, what do you want me to say?' The Doctor was so angry he was almost hovering. 'Well done on marrying the only male nurse not to have a full set of Barbara Streisand records? Why did you pick him, anyway? Were there no flight attendants in your village?'
'Only Jeff,' [Amy replied].
'I picked Rory, always Rory, because he is just like you,' I [Amy] yelled at him. 'He is sweet and understanding and funny and he always tries to do the right thing. Plus you both run the same way.'
'We do not.'
“You know, my apartment is pretty bare.” “That’s an understatement,” she whispered on a laugh as she sat back and put her seat belt on. “I happen to be locked out of my apartment and have nothing to do today . . .” “You want to help me pick out new furniture?” “Took you long enough to ask me!” I smiled and threw my truck in reverse. “Smart-ass.” ”
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.
