“СЛОЖНОДУМНО

Гъстонаселено се автотранспортирах в общоизвестното южнопарижко местонаправление и се самоозовах близкостоящ до един дълговрат плетеноширитен дръжми-шапковец. Гореописаният трагикомично слаботелесен нехранимайко с плиткодънна многозначителност умопомрачи еди-кого си с долуказаното: “Като целенасочено своеволничите, вие нееднократно злоупотребявате с телосложението ми!” След животрептущето си словоизлияние преждеговорившият правостоящ скорострелно се облагодетелства от междувременно обезлюдилата се едноместна автоседалка.
Подир двучасово времетраене мимоходом го лицесъзрях да площадосенлазарства с гологлав доброжелател, който нравоучително и чистосърдечно празнословеше: “Целесъобразно е да преокомплектоваш по-благоразумно полушубката си!” И умозаключително изсладкодумничи причинно-следствената взаимовръзка.”
― Raymond Queneau, quote from Exercises in Style


“I'd heard a saying about meth, that it took you down one of three roads: jail, the psych ward, or death.”

“He might have run off then, and thus avoided a great many adventures to come, but the girl cried, “Wait!” and he turned to face her. “Please,” she implored from the window. “Don’t go. Come with us. I promise you won’t regret it.”
For a moment, Peter stood in the road indecisively, staring into the girl’s eyes as if trying to penetrate a great mystery.”
― Christopher Daniel Mechling, quote from Peter: The Untold True Story

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 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.
