“I love you. In every life, I love you. I love you so much.”
“KitKat 13:18:45: Who would your ideal prince be? Your childhood friend, Prince Charming, or a strong warrior?
Gallows Humor 13:19:10: I don’t want to know which Disney Princess I am. I’ve told you before, stop doing online quizzes. Leave it.
Gallows Humor 13:22:19: He would love me for myself.
KitKat 13:22:57: Tell me about your dress.”
“You think you are a lot funnier than you are, you know,” he replied, not looking away from the cannon.
“I am extremely amusing! I don’t think you are listening properly.”
“Not exactly hard, is it?”
“That’s what she said,” Kate interjected.
Matt shook his head. “And this is where I chose to lay my affections,” he muttered, like it was just the latest in a series of bad life choices he’d made.”
“Matthew hereby declares that Katherine Galloway is retroactively responsible for all embarrassing and painful incidents that have occurred in his life to date. Including, but not limited to, that time he broke his own nose with a tennis racket in eighth grade. KATHERINE’S FAULT.”
“I’ve been a bad influence on you, Mr. Galloway. Less of the sarcasm, young man. Cynicism doesn’t suit you,” she said.
“I hardly think sarcasm is the worst thing you’ve brought into my life,” he muttered.”
“Kate was reading through a long diary entry about the first time Katherine
and Matthew had met. Katherine had apparently fallen deeply in lust on the very spot. The entry used the words “delectable,”“buttocks,” and “I want to bite them.”
“He started a brief staring contest, which was apparently his new method of persuading her to agree to his point of view without the hassle of actually yelling.”

“Legends were not only for the desperate. Legends were for the brave.”
“The mind is a basket . . . if you put nothing in, you get nothing out.”
“You're wrong Heinrich. While it might seem easy to believe, you and I aren't actually the same. You've been fighting someone else's war, you've been obeying orders, you've been carrying out a part in his plan.

“Cabeza de melón
Había un niño taciturno,
de hombre y melón un injerto.

tras un pisotón bien dado.”
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.
