“Just because you're the same kind doesn't mean you're all one happy family. The important thing is to understand each other. That's love!”
“.هناكَ شيءٌ ما يحدثُ في هذا العالم على الدوام . هناكَ كائنٌ ما يموت و آخر يولد. هناك فراقٌ و لقاءٌ في الوقت نفسه تقربياً. يعني ذلك أنه يستحيل علينا أن نحزن إلى الأبدِ”
“That's all there is to it. We look different, so we don't understand each other's inner thoughts, but we cherish each other in our own way. I respect you.”
“كانت حياتي قاسية, لكنني كنت سعيدة جدًا, وتمكنت من البقاء حية بسبب ذلك الحلم”
“تمكنت الفراخ من قبول بايبي بسرعة بالرغم من اختلاف ريشه عن ريشها”
“لا أدري لماذا حياتي صعبة هكذا. هل يحصل هذا معي لأن لدي حلمًا؟”
“كان المكان هادئًا رغم انتهاء حياةٍ غاليةٍ على قلبها. كانت الأشجار والنجوم والقمر و العشب كلها هادئة, وكأنها تتظاهر بأنها لم تشاهد أي شيء.”
“انت مختلفة عن دجاجة باحةالحظيرة. تبدين أكثر ثقة بنفسك, وأكثر مهابة. يا لغرابة ذلك لأن ريشك قد تساقط, لكن مظهرك يبدو أفضل”
“People have a right to be the way they are.”
“I need to admit up front that I don't know how to have a fling. I'm not good at playing around and then saying good-bye. I'm throwing myself at your feet because I'm hoping for a shot at forever." Henry Jenkins/Mr. Nobley”
“Love fills everything. It cannot be desired because it is an end in itself. It cannot betray because it has nothing to do with possession. It cannot be held prisoner because it is a river and will overflow its banks. Anyone who tries to imprison love will cut off the spring that feeds it, and the trapped water will grow stagnant.”
“Tony:...but you need something to do about Noah.
Paul: I know, I know. The only problem being that (a) he thinks I'm getting back with my ex-boyfriend, (b) he thinks I'll only hurt him, because (c) I've already hurt him and (d) someone else has already hurt him, which means that I'm hurting him even more. So (e) he doesn't trust me, and in all fairness, (g) every time I see him, I (h) want everything to be right again and I (i) want to kiss him madly. This means that (j) my feelings aren't going away anytime soon, but (k) his feelings don't look likely to budge, either. So either (l) I'm out of luck, (m) I'm out of hope, or (n) there's a way to make it up to him that I'm not thinking of. I could (o) beg, (p) plead, (q) grovel, or (r) give up. But, in order to do that, I would have to sacrifice my (s) pride, (t) reputation, and (u) self-respect, even though (v) I have very little of them left and (w) it probably wouldn't work anyway. As a result, I am (x) lost, (y) clue-free, and (z) wondering if you have any idea whatsoever what I should do.”
“O!" Sunny shrieked.
"O!" Klaus agreed.
"O!" Sunny insisted.
"Oh!" Klaus cried. "I see what you mean!...”
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.
