“I never left you; I never will leave you. While life lasts, and beyond, I am here.”
― Marion Zimmer Bradley, quote from The King Stag


“Magic is a matter of focusing the disciplined will. But sometimes the will must be abandoned. The secret lies in knowing when to exercise control, and when to let go.”
― Marion Zimmer Bradley, quote from The King Stag


“Pride, she thought drearily, was a cold bedfellow.”
― Marion Zimmer Bradley, quote from The King Stag


“Desidererò sempre una felicità fuori della mia portata? si chiese d'un tratto. Oppure imparerò con il tempo a vivere appagata all'interno delle nebbie che ci circondano?”
― Marion Zimmer Bradley, quote from The King Stag


“«Isarma!» mormorò lei. «Aiutami, e aiuta il bambino!» E come un eco si udirono quindi altre parole: «Possa il frutto della nostra vita essere vincolato a te con sigillo, o Madre, o Donna Eterna, che tieni la vita interiore di ciascuna tua figlia nelle mani posate sul suo cuore...» Nel contemplare il volto pallidissimo che aveva davanti, Viviana comprese che anche Ana aveva sentito quelle parole, e per un momento entrambe cessarono di essere madre e figlia per essere soltanto due donne, sorelle vincolate l'una all'altra e alla Grande Madre di vita fin da prima che i Saggi giungessero dal mare.”
― Marion Zimmer Bradley, quote from The King Stag



“Il mondo gira come questo fuso... e la sola certezza è che il bene e il male si avvicenderanno sempre. Senza cambiamento non può crescere nulla di nuovo, e quando i vecchi disegni si ripetono questo accade in modo nuovo... Il volto della Signora cambia ma il suo potere persiste, il re che dona la sua vita per la terra rinasce per ripetere il suo sacrificio. A volte anch'io nutro dei timori, ma ho visto passare troppi inverni per non credere che dopo verrà sempre la primavera...”
― Marion Zimmer Bradley, quote from The King Stag


“A flor e até mesmo o fruto são apenas o começo. Na semente está a vida e o futuro.”
― Marion Zimmer Bradley, quote from The King Stag

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.
