“Accepting help is its own kind of strength”
“Any girl who would risk her life for someone she loves certainly deserves to be called a lady.”
“I’ve seen a lot of people let the bad around them make them hard or stubborn. In the end, they miss the chance to make their world better because they only see the worst in it.”
“It is fine to be upset, but that won't get you anywhere. You gotta think about what you can learn from this. So far, looks like all you've learned is how to beat up on something that can't beat you back.”
“Everything doesn't seem like anything when you love someone. Especially when you're young.”
“She clung to him, song after song, staring into his eyes they way she used to stare into mine.”
“You’re the only thing I’ve ever wanted to fight for.”
“The ladies who came to the palace tended to be less aggressive physically. But their words could probably start wars if said in the wrong tone.”
“Everything doesn't seem like anything when you love someone.”
“What would I fight for in this world if I wasn’t fighting for her?”
“I stored up every moment like it was a physical thing. I'd thumb through memories whenever things were still. I spent more time with her than she ever knew.”
“Ella se agarró a él, canción tras canción, mirándole fijamente a los ojos, como solía hacer antes conmigo. Así que quizá bebiera una copa de más mientras observaba la escena. Y tal vez aquel jarrón del vestíbulo se rompiera por mi culpa. Y puede que acabara mordiendo la almohada para silenciar mi llanto, para que Avery no me oyera.”
“Let the world go to hell around you so long as you can get to her”
“I've seen a lot of people let the bad around them make them hard or stubborn. In the end, they miss the chance to make their world better because they only see the worst in it.”
“The only way to get to the good is to walk through the bad.”
“It felt like an eternity had passed since we'd kissed this deeply, but we fell into it so easily.”
“So then you’re free?’
‘Yes, I’m free,’ said Karl, and nothing seemed more worthless than his freedom.”
“Where the veil broke, you could see silvery clouds on which tall angels might stand. Not cute little Christmas angels, but high, stern angels in white robes, whose faces were sad and serious from being near God all day and hearing His decisions about the world.”
“How about we go through the festival once before picking a spot?”
“Why?” I ask.
“Because I enjoy apples,” he replies. Rosie giggles. “Because then we can go if there’s a spot that would be particularly easy to grab a girl from,” he answers again, voice serious this time.”
“Stig: 'Of course, she'll sail rings around Wolfswind,'
Hal: 'Then why didn't you tell him that?'
Stig: 'I like my head where it is.”
“No further issues with Corinne Bishop or her kin in Detroit?”
“Hunter didn’t seem to be concerned,” Gideon replied. “Said he had the situation under control.”
Lucan grunted, wry despite the weight of the discussion previously under way. “Where’ve I heard that line before? Famous last words from more than one of us over the course of the past year and a half.”
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 2023, 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.
