― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker

― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker

― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“Please give me fifty more years of work and fun, then an instant death when I'm sleeping.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker



“A battered wife is a married woman until she gets a divorce. Or until she kills the bastard.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“All students enter law school with a certain amount of idealism and desire to serve the public, but after three years of brutal competition we care for nothing but the right job with the right firm where we can make partner in seven years and earn big bucks.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“The coffee arrives, and we backslide into what lawyers do best---talking about other lawyers.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“life is too short to despise people who simply can't help what they've done.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“He's my client, and he's counting on me. I'll take him, warts and all.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker



“We cuss them because we're not good enough for them. We hate them because they wouldn't look at us, couldn't be bothered to give us an interview. I guess there's a Trent & Brent in every city, in every field. I didn't make it and I don't belong, so I'll just go through life hating them.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“There are few things in life worse than a long-winded lawyer.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“The company later went broke, and of course all blame was directed at the lawyers. Not once did I hear any talk that maybe a trace of mismanagement could in any way have contributed to the bankruptcy.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“Anyone can cook a trout. The real art is in hooking the damned thing.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“It takes just one, he says over and over. You hear that all the time in this business. One big case, and you can retire. That's one reason lawyers do so many sleazy things, like full-color ads in the yellow pages, and billboards, and placards on city buses, and telephone solicitation. You hold your nose, ignore the stench of what you're doing, ignore the snubs and snobbery of big-firm lawyers, because it takes only one.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker



“I am motivated by thoughts of my sorrowful little client and the screwing that he got. I'm the only lawyer Donny Ray has, and it will take much more than paper to slow me down.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“F. Franklin the Fourth has a job with a firm rich in heritage, money and pretentiousness, a firm vastly superior to Brodnax and Speer. His sidekicks at the moment are W. Harper Whittenson, an arrogant little snot who will, thankfully, leave Memphis and practice with a mega-firm in Dallas; J. Townsend Gross, who has accepted a position with another huge firm; and James Straybeck, a sometimes friendly sort who's suffered three years of law school without an initial to place before his name or numerals to stick after it. With such a short name, his future as a big-firm lawyer is in jeopardy. I doubt if he'll make it.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“I can feel the competition here, very much like the first few weeks of law school when we were terribly concerned with each other's initial progress. I nod at a few acquaintances, silently hoping they flunk the exam because they're silently hoping I Collapse too. Such is the nature of the profession.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker


“Like a snake creeping through the undergrowth, I sneak into the law school well past noon and hours after both of my scheduled classes have broken up.”
― John Grisham, quote from The Rainmaker

“laughter is cathartic and cleansing, that it's good for the body and the soul, and when it's real it's better than sex.”
― Patricia Gaffney, quote from The Saving Graces


“О том, что новое поколение молодежи вообще существует, было упомянуто единственный раз: когда бывшие хиппи обвинили устроителей в том, что они превратили их культовый Вудсток в какой-то Алчсток или Вудшлак, а устроители оправдывались тем, что если бы вся эта штука не была проплачена, продана с потрохами и красиво упакована в вакуумную пленку совместными усилиями крупных корпораций, нынешние детишки просто бы взбунтовались. Один из организаторов Вудстока, Джон Роберте, объяснил, что нынешнее юношество «привыкло к спонсорству. Если пацан пойдет на концерт и там никто ничего не раскручивает и не продает, у него, наверно, крыша поедет».”
― Naomi Klein, quote from No Logo

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.
