“But they fight in the name of the creator."
"I don't care if they fight in the name of broccoli. The goal remains the same.”
“She put her hands on her hips and surveyed the area with a cocky smile on her face. The smirk spread when the traitor met my gaze.
"No hello for your old friend?" she asked me. "Don't be rude Baby Face."
"Go to hell, Wynn.”
“It was in the crypt," Loren said, gesturing. "We just managed to get it here after you pulled your little surprise on us."
"You're the best." I blew him a kiss.
"Hey, what about me?" Quain asked.
"You're second best, as always," Loren said.”
“You have my heart, my soul, my life. I'm an empty shell without you.”
“The creator had nothing to do with her rescue.” “Yeah, he should have cried, thank the Flea!” Quain said. “Ooh, I like. We should use it all the time,” Loren added. They tried out variations of it as they headed inside with Flea trotting behind them. “Guess”
“And it's always better to check than be sorry," Quain added. "'It worked' could be code for the dead are invading."
"Wow, that's... really random, Quain. Aside from you , who would ever put those two things together?”
“She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.”
“Those born to wealth, and who have the means of gratifying every wish, know not what is the real happiness of life, just as those who have been tossed on the stormy waters of the ocean on a few frail planks can alone realize the blessings of fair weather.”
“I can’t share your love of God. But I do understand your need to give your life to him. Each of us has within us something that just won’t be denied. Something to which we are driven even though it makes us scream aloud to die.”

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.
