“Everyone will say I'm insane, but I don't care, Rose. Is it insane to marry the girl I love? A girl with golden brown hair, with gifts of beauty and goodness and storytelling?”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Striding up to him, Wilhelm drew his fist back and landed a clean blow to Rupert’s jaw. Rupert reeled, and after two wobbly backward steps, hit the floor on his backside. He raised a hand to his face. “Feel better?” “No. Get up so I can hit you again.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“The pain in his chest grew so intense it took his breath away. So this is what a broken heart feels like.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Because he cared for her. If he were completely honest, he didn’t want Rupert to marry her, because he wanted to marry her himself.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Tell me, Rose. Who did this?” On his knees a mere two feet from her, he had to restrain himself again from pulling her into his arms.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Wilhelm studied Christoff and Georg. With a fair maiden in their midst, he knew his men too well to doubt their thoughts. He suddenly agreed with the dog. He didn’t want them staring at her.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“The impulse to tear her attacker apart set his muscles on edge.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“He stared at her perfect lips. “God, if you have made a way for us to be together,” he whispered, “then let me awaken her with this kiss of true love.” Slowly, he leaned toward her, closed his eyes, and pressed his lips to hers. Her eyes fluttered open. She smiled softly then reached up and touched his cheek. He covered her hand with his. “You are well?” “Yes.” Her voice was breathy. “Thank you. But if it’s all right, I think I will sleep a bit more.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Lord Hamlin’s eyes darted in their direction, alighted on Rose, and held. His expression changed and his features softened as he looked at her.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“So she’d never experience love. Most married people didn’t, either.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Wilhelm glanced up just in time to see Rose walk in. His jaw fell. Her hair, her dress, her face…She made everyone else in the room look pale and lifeless. He’d better close his mouth before someone saw him staring.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“When he’d seen the hurt on her face and her torn dress, then found out what Rupert had said to her, it almost ripped out his heart.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“He was cold and wet, but somehow he barely felt it. He kept remembering Rose snuggled against his chest, the feel of her body in his arms. He closed his eyes as he recalled the way she had looked at him, the way she said “I love you.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“She thought about all the things she would like to say to him. Thank you for wanting to defend me. Thank you for thinking Rupert is a rogue. Thank you for being a man of integrity. Oh, Lord Hamlin, if you were mine, I’d make you so happy. Rose stifled a laugh at the stupid, outrageous thought.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Who would marry her and take care of her? O God, let it be me. His chest ached with the fervor of his desire—and his impossible request.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“He took a step toward her. She turned around, a tentative smile on her face. His beautiful Rose. He sank to his knees and raised his hands over his face. “Thank you, God. You’re so good to me.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“You are the most beautiful sight,” he whispered. He leaned down and kissed her forehead. She leaned into him, her whole body melting. His lips moved to her temple, then her cheek. Finally, they slipped down and found her mouth. He kissed her slowly, reverently, his hands resting on the sides of her head, his thumbs lightly touching her cheekbones.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“But what stuck in her mind was the way Lord Hamlin had looked at her. Thinking of that, her face began to burn once again.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“In three weeks my betrothed is coming here, to the castle. But Rose, I can’t marry her. I tried to believe that I could love her, and I’m sure I could have had I not met you. But knowing you, Rose, loving you as I do, I can’t possibly marry someone else. So I came up with a plan.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Rose clasped her hands and stared into his eyes, loving him, drinking in his love for her, for the last time.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“A knot tightened around Wilhelm’s chest. So this is how jealousy feels.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Wilhelm let go. He turned to look at Rose. His heart seemed ready to leap out of his chest. Could it be? Rose? His Rose. It was too good to be true.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“He slowly lowered his arms. The look on his face reached out and wrapped her in a warm embrace of love. He got to his feet and held out his hand. She closed the gap between them and buried her face in his chest. His arms enfolded her.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“She wished she had not shrunk back when he reached out to her. At this moment his strong arms could be holding, warming, comforting her.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Anger bubbled up inside him so strong that he clenched his fist and silently promised his brother that he would pay for his boorish behavior.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Rose reached out and touched his fingers. He immediately covered her hand in a firm grasp. His warm fingers entwined with hers and made her heart beat erratically. The snake had nearly scared her to death, but his touch and his presence overwhelmed her with comfort and safety. The darkness gave her a feeling of intimacy with him. They could hold each other’s hand and no one could see. She liked it—so very much.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“Instead of letting her go, he lifted her hand to his lips, his eyelids closing, and slowly kissed the backs of her fingers. She held her breath at the rush of pleasure his lips created as they brushed softly over her skin. A tiny sigh escaped her. I shouldn’t let him do this.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice


“How he had wanted to forget who he was for one moment, forget his duty and everything else, to pull her into his arms and kiss her with every ounce of his passion.”
― Melanie Dickerson, quote from The Healer's Apprentice

Popular quotes

“The three-story derelict is home to Smitty, Gale, and Gale's baby - a nuclear family nested on the corner - and Ella is accustomed to seeing them on the front steps, waiting for redemption or a cool breeze from the harbor, neither of which seems particularly likely.”
― David Simon, quote from The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood


“Since I didn't have any world-class fencing skills, I kicked Cernunnos in the nuts again. I didn't have to know how to use a sword to do that, and he was standing there like he was asking for it, so it seemed justified. Shock and rage filled his green eyes all over again and he doubled. I guess there must be rules that people fighting gods usually followed. Next time, maybe someone would give me a primer.”
― C.E. Murphy, quote from Urban Shaman


“A woman can always strive to be stronger in the face of painful emotions.”
― Morgan Rhodes, quote from Crystal Storm


“A woman trying to function like a man is as ridiculous as a man trying to be like a woman. A unisex society is a senseless society—a society dangerously out of order.”
― Debi Pearl, quote from Created to be His Help Meet


“One of man's deepest habits is keeping alert for dangers and difficulties, refusing to allow himself to explore his own mind because he daren't take his eyes off the world around him.”
― Colin Wilson, quote from The Mind Parasites

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.
