“Sueña con metas altas y volarás como las águilas. Eso debes hacer, alcanzar las cumbres de la vida. Busca al que sea sabio y aprende con él. Usa bien la ambición sin por ello dañar a nadie. No hagas que tengan que recriminarte en tu trabajo, hazlo siempre bien. E intenta ganar cuando te hagan competir. No te dejes avasallar por nadie y aunque hayas nacido en un hogar humilde, no te consideres por ello indigno. Si luchas con esfuerzo, conseguirás todo lo que te propongas.”
― Gonzalo Giner, quote from The Horse Healer


“competir. No te dejes avasallar por nadie y aunque hayas nacido en un hogar humilde, no te consideres por ello indigno. Si luchas con esfuerzo, conseguirás todo lo que te propongas. Y por último, cuida y protege a tus hermanas, llevan tu misma sangre... Hijo mío, jamás olvides que tuviste un padre que te quiso más que a nada en el mundo, y que un día, orgulloso, te mirará desde el cielo.» Delante”
― Gonzalo Giner, quote from The Horse Healer


“Pero también debes aprender a ser humilde cuando no halles la respuesta. En esos momentos mira al cielo. Tu Dios y el mío lo saben todo. Nosotros sólo somos una pequeñez a su lado. Perseguimos la verdad, y Él es la verdad.”
― Gonzalo Giner, quote from The Horse Healer


“La muerte es una liberación. Ten esperanza, tal vez sea sólo un tránsito hacia un destino mejor [...] ... nada es lo que parece, [...] detrás de todo lo que ocurre siempre hay un sentido, aunque a veces esté oculto.”
― Gonzalo Giner, quote from The Horse Healer


“La vida es un largo peregrinar por el sendero de la perfección. Tratamos de alcanzar el final y no nos damos cuenta de que lo importante se encuentra en el recorrido. He conocido a muchos que se creen infelices por no haber cubierto al completo sus sueños. Su ambición les ha cegado tanto que ya no ven las bondades que el propio camino les ofrece.”
― Gonzalo Giner, quote from The Horse Healer



“La capacidad de crecerse ante la adversidad convierte al hombre en un ser grande, y superarse es un sano estímulo para el corazón. Aprender de los errores ennoblece, y sentirse humilde, en un mundo de soberbia, te aseguro que se convierte en la llave de la felicidad. [...] Debes entender que la felicidad no está en los grandes objetivos. Son esos grandes sucesos los que te van haciendo crecer, y si lo meditas, verás como cada uno de ellos significa algo, piénsalo.”
― Gonzalo Giner, quote from The Horse Healer

Popular quotes

“Cousin Mary hoped her journey through periods of dark and light was like that of a Swiss train toiling up the mountainside, in and out of tunnels but always a little farther up the hill at each emergence. But she could only hope that this was so, she did not feel it. It seemed to her that she did not advance at all and that what she was learning now was only to hold on. The Red Queen in Alice Through the Looking Glass, she remembered, had had to run fast merely to stay where she was, but doubtless she had run in hope, disdaining despair; and hope, Cousin Mary discovered, when deliberately opposed to despair, was one of the tough virtues.”
― Elizabeth Goudge, quote from The Scent of Water


“Reputable companies don’t get their test subjects through ads in gaming magazines,”
― Graham Parke, quote from No Hope for Gomez!


“Look at things not as they are, but as they can be. Visualization adds value to everything. A big thinker always visualizes what can be done in the future. He isn't stuck with the present”
― David J. Schwartz, quote from Magic of Thinking Big


“Choose what’s important to you, Macy. Not for the moment, but for eternity.”
― Rachel Hauck, quote from Georgia on Her Mind


“The anarch, as I have expounded elsewhere, is the pendant to the monarch; he is as sovereign as the monarch, and also freer since he does not have to rule.”
― Ernst Jünger, quote from Eumeswil

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 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.
