“Falling in love was like falling off a cliff. It felt pretty much like flying until you hit the ground.”
“Fitch is on his way. He's coming after he blows up some wizards.”
“Jason felt humiliated and frustrated. Rejected by a rock.”
“Madison looked from Jason, who jerked his head toward the gate, signaling her to get moving, to Longbranch, whose cold, direct gaze said Jason would pay in blood for any kind of double-cross.
One thing was clear: Jason Haley had been lying to her since the moment he set foot on her porch. Was he really plotting with the Roses? Or had he decided to sacrifice himself to get her into the sanctuary?
Madison threw her arms around Jason's neck as if she couldn't face being parted from him and whispered fiercely in his ear, "You lying lunatic bastard. They're going to kill you."
"I love you too," he murmured. "Go find Seph. Help him.”
“Outside the Weirwall, Jack could hear the thud of bodies colliding and the cries of the wounded. It seemed like a lot of noise. Even given the fact that Ellen was involved.
"Why'd she go out there?" Jack demanded. "Why didn't you stop her?"
Brooks spat on the ground. "Have you ever tried to stop Captain Stephenson from anythin'?”
“Commander! Sir! Wake up!"
Jack surfaced from sleep, wondering who the commander was and wishing he'd respond so he could go back to sleep - until he remembered that he was the commander.”
“Sometimes you have to go somewhere else to appreciate what we have here.”
“You lying lunatic bastard. They're going to kill you."
"I love you too," he murmured. "Go find Seph.”
“How'd it go with Leesha?"
"It was great! We were bad cop and bad cop!”
“Her clothes still smoked from the wizard’s assault. But to him, she always smelled of flowers.”
“It's not enough to do something. It's important to do the right thing.”
“We'll have supper in a little while, but I believe we should eat dessert first.”
“Uh, Miss, you have second and third degree burns that need treatment,"he said.
"They'll be okay. I'll just use concealer for a while.”
“Sometimes she wondered if she was doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past, since she'd trained herself not to look back at it.”
“He shook his head, ripping his hands free. "I just went to pick it up." He felt humiliated and frustrated. Rejected by a ROCK.”
“I have to believe that people can change. That people deserve a second chance.”
“Hastings sat back, extending his long legs. "It's not enough to do SOMETHING. It's important to do the RIGHT thing.”
“The girl must be looking for another hot-fudge shower," Ellen said. Then she, too, advanced on Leesha.”
“Then talk to Hastings."
Leesha flinched. "He's so scary, you know?”
“His father always treated him as if he were capable of great things. Which made him want to accomplish great things.”
“I wish I believed in something, Madison thought. I wish I belonged somewhere.”
“It had been weeks since anyone had even tried to kill him. As long as someone was trying to kill you, you knew you were important.”
“Murder, other than in the most strict forensic sense, is never soluble. That dark human clot can never melt into a lucid, clear suspension. Our detective fiction tells us otherwise: everything is just meat and cold ballistics. Provide a murderer, a motive and a means, and you have solved the crime. Using this method, the solution to the Second World War is as follows: Hitler. The German economy. Tanks. Thus, for convenience, we reduce the complex events.”
“Nothing like an arcane literary debate with your tyrannical master while you pass the time leading to your execution.”
“You are wrong when you say there is no power in being a woman. When I think of my mother and the women in my tribe, and the hidden women in the harem, I know there are many types of power in this world...I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life? I don't think I could do it.”
“Janie: So you're a double agent?
Cabel: Sure.That sounds sexy.”
“No heart can ever be truly understood. Not even your own.”
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.
