He tossed the letter over his shoulder, strode across the room toward her, his eyes alight with triumph.

Popular quotes

“That, in a nutshell, is the scientific method: understand and frame the problem; observe; hypothesize (or imagine); test and deduce; and repeat. To follow Sherlock Holmes is to learn to apply that same approach not just to external clues, but to your every thought—and then turn it around and apply it to the every thought of every other person who may be involved, step by painstaking step.”
― Maria Konnikova, quote from Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

“The problem was, the people who should shut up were the ones talking the most.”
― Orson Scott Card, quote from Earth Unaware

“It was like everyone suddenly knew what mattered. Money didn't matter. Politics didn't matter. Tabloid news didn't matter. No-compassion mattered. Calm mattered. Respect mattered. Did it really take something of this magnitude to make us realize this?”
― David Levithan, quote from Love Is the Higher Law

“Non so cosa ci sia all'interno di questa scatoletta di plastica, e non so nemmeno se lo saprò mai. E il problema sta tutto lì. Potrei saperlo; avrei potuto aprirla nel giro di un'ora, avrei potuto esaminarne il contenuto e sapere una volta per tutte se c'è una speranza...o meno.
Ma se lo faccio, e poi scopro che c'è speranza, cosa succede se c'è solo quella? Solo un briciolo di speranza? Cosa succede se scopro che era solo una bolla di sapone?
Perché se c'è una cosa che odio della speranza è che la speranza improvvisa è la strada spianata verso l'improvvisa disperazione.”
― Danny Wallace, quote from Charlotte Street

“But if monsters could look like humans, and humans could look like monsters, how could anyone ever really be sure that the right people stood on the outside of all those cages?”
― Rachel Vincent, quote from Menagerie

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.
