― Molière, quote from Tartuffe

“ما أصلح هذه السيدة!
الحق يقال انها تعيش في زهد وورع؛
ولكنه التقدم في السن هو الذي دفعها الى ذلك.
إنها تتنسك ولا تسمح لأحد بأن يمس جسدها.
لقد تمتعت بمحاسنها ما استطاعت أن تجذب القلوب وتغريها؛
ولكنها حين رأت ذبول عينيها وزوال بهجتها
زهدت في الدنيا التي أعرضت عنها ،
وأخفت جمالها الذاوي وراء نقاب الحكمة الجليل.

تلك هي تقلبات ذوات الغنج في عصرنا هذا:
يشق عليهن هجر الظرفاء المحبين لهن
فلا يجدن ملاذا في ظلام همومهن
إلا باحتراف التقى والفضيلة
ولقد بلغت قسوة تلك النساء الصالحات
ان رحن ينددن بكل شيء ولا يتجاوزن عن شيء:
فهن ينتقدن جهارا سلوك كل إنسان،
لا عن تقوى وصلاح ولكن بدافع من الحسد
الذي يأبى على الآخرين الاستمتاع بلذات
فطمهن تقادم السن عنها”
― Molière, quote from Tartuffe

“طرطوف: آه يا إلهي، أرجوك قبل أن تتكلني خذي هذا المنديل واستري هذا الصدر الذي لايمكنني أن أراه
إن مثل هذه المناظر لتؤذي النفوس،
وإن هذا ليثير الخواطر الأليمة

دورين: إذن فأنت سهل على الغواية،
وللجسد على حواسك تأثير كبير

جول لومتر: لماذا دورين ، بل لماذا تكشف كل النساء عن صدورهن إذا لم يكن ذلك من أجل إثارة حواسنا؟”
― Molière, quote from Tartuffe

“Le scandale du monde, est ce qui fait l'offense;
Et ce n'est pas pécher, que pécher en silence.”
― Molière, quote from Tartuffe

“I'm all amazed, befuddled, and beflustered!”
― Molière, quote from Tartuffe

“Je ne me fîerai point à des propos si doux,
Qu'un peu de ses faveurs, après quoi je soupire.
Ne vienne m'assurer tout ce qu'ils m'ont pu dire.”
― Molière, quote from Tartuffe

Popular quotes

“The guest perceived his host's sorrow, for he had recounted it so clearly, and he said, "Sir, I am not wise, but if I ever win knightly fame so that I am fit to ask for love, you shall give me Liaze your daughter, the lovely maid. You have told me too much sorrow. If I can relieve it then, I will not let you bear so great a burden of it.”
― Wolfram von Eschenbach, quote from Parzival

“You want to live? You better figure out your life.”
― Arthur Miller, quote from All My Sons

“but if you were a nasty piece of work growing up, you’ll be an asshole as an adult and you’ll die pissed off.”
― Louise Penny, quote from A Trick of the Light

“I don't want to worry
I don't want to be sad
I have so much to be happy about”
― Lisa Schroeder, quote from Far from You

“Like Nazi concentration camps, labour camps in North Korea use confinement, hunger and fear to create a kind of Skinner box: a closed, closely regulated chamber in which guards assert absolute control over prisoners. Yet while Auschwitz existed for only three years, Camp 14 is a fifty-year-old Skinner box, an ongoing longitudinal experiment in repression and mind control in which guards breed prisoners whom they control, isolate and pit against each other from birth.”
― Blaine Harden, quote from Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West

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.
