“We don't belong anywhere, because we can belong everywhere.”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“When people are cruel it's often said that they have no heart, only a cold space or lump of ice in their chest. This was never true of Avalon. She had no heart, everyone knew, but there was nothing cold about her. In her chest burned an enormous coal, white-hot, brighter than the North Star. North knew the truth about Avalon: she was made of fire, and she would burn them all.”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“Many ways to fly, but only one way to fall.”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“On the outside, grief was expressed in judders, faltering and unsure, but inside it felt as constant as breathing.”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“It’s a grace feather. See how its colors shift from green to blue, like the sea? It means remembrance. It shows that no distance, no amount of water between two people, will make them forget. Someone gave it to say that they remembered you.”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“Spectacle is grounded in the illusion of control.”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“What’s the use of a clown who doesn’t subvert?”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“Is it really a choice when we have no other option?”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“they were two halves of the same whole”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers


“Whatever the truth, over time the landlockers had learned to blame the banks, the relentless drive for more money, for the rising seas and the loss of their land. Once upon a time they’d had a whole planet of fields and plains and deserts and forests. Now they had to make do with the patched-up corners of gutted cities, to cluster their homes around half-dead copses, to scrape what they could from their tiny footholds in a swallowing sea.”
― Kirsty Logan, quote from The Gracekeepers

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.
