“After all, it's the people you care about the most who can cut you the deepest.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“It isn't as simple as a fascination of the flesh. It's everything about her that I love: her intelligence, her ambition, her talent, her sense of humor, her dependability, her kindness.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“We have an undeniable connection that's more intense than 10,000 Kelvin heat, more dynamic than seismic activity. It's like there's gravity between us - she's the only thing anchoring me to the world, keeping me from floating off into the upper stratosphere and getting lost in space.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“Acknowledging that my biological imperative may not include the drive to procreate, that I just might be attracted to XX chromosomes instead of XY? That's so stupid-minor in comparison to the fact that I might actually be in love for the first time in my life. It's with a girl...so what? Lesbian, bisexual, whatever! Thus isn't about categorisation or chromosomes. This is about how I feel about another person.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“I guess it doesn’t matter how well you think you know someone, there’s always a fear that they’ll abandon you. After all, it’s the people you care about the most who can cut you the deepest.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“Music. This is how I bleed.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“Some problems can't be solved by talking about them.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“Deep down inside you always know when it’s the one, even if it’s hard to tell at first. Or hard to accept”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“I'm holding out hope for a girl who will never, ever have a romantic feeling for me as long as she lives. It's foolish, really, that I'm prepared to die alone when I know for a fact there's a sea of lesbians somewhere I could be swimming in.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“Gee, Mom, thanks for the cupcake. By the way, I'm a raging lesbian.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“I think I’m gay.” “Yeah? That’s awesome. Maybe we can do this again sometime,” she jokes.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“What are you waiting for?” She grins. “Kiss me.” And I do—for a very, very long time.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“She laughs a sweet, throaty laugh, and my heartstrings come undone. I realize at that moment how completely helpless I am against her. She’s like a cyclone, this fascinating yet deadly force of nature that carves a path straight through my defenses no matter how hard I try to fortify them. So, why do I bother trying at all? I’m not sure if I’m ready to be swept away. I’m not ready to leave the sorry, little shelter I’ve built myself. Once I step into the storm, everything changes.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“That’s the trouble with life. It’s merely a series of moments, each one completely different from the last.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“Kendall, you're my daughter. I could never hate you. I will always love you and be proud of you. Unless you were to become a career criminal, then I probably wouldn't be so proud.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“Just say no, Payton, like you would crack cocaine!”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us


“I slip into the back seat, and the car starts down the road. I watch her through the rear window, shrinking as the distance between us grows.”
― Kristen Zimmer, quote from The Gravity Between Us

Popular quotes

“If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

During the life of any heart this line keeps changing place; sometimes it is squeezed one way by exuberant evil and sometimes it shifts to allow enough space for good to flourish. One and the same human being is, at various ages, under various circumstances, a totally different human being. At times he is close to being a devil, at times to sainthood. But his name doesn't change, and to that name we ascribe the whole lot, good and evil.

Socrates taught us: 'Know thyself!”
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, quote from The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956


“He glares at me. "I've had to watch you die once, isn't that enough?"
"All you have to do is make sure it doesn't happen again." I give him a sunny smile. "Simple."
"The only thing simple is you. Stubborn little..." His grumbles fades to a point where I can't hear them, but I suspect they're not compliments.”
― Susan Ee, quote from World After


“We're going to see Ragnak," Halt told him. "He's going to have to promise to free every slave who fights for Hallasholm."
Will shook his head doubtfully. "He won't like that," he said. Halt turned and looked at him, a faint grin touching the corner of his mouth.
He'll hate it," he agreed.”
― John Flanagan, quote from The Battle for Skandia


“The amount that she loved us was beyond her reach. It could not be quantified or contained. It was the ten thousand named things in the Tao Te Ching’s universe and then ten thousand more. Her love was full-throated and all-encompassing and unadorned. Every day she blew through her entire reserve.”
― Cheryl Strayed, quote from Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail


“For sale: baby shoes, never used.”
― Ernest Hemingway, quote from The Complete Short Stories

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.
