“You never had me, Keaton, but I always had you.”
“Love is the pain of pleasure,” I forced between sniveling sobs, “and pain is the pleasure of love.”
“The sad thing is, I don’t think you’ll ever know what’s true and what’s false about me.”
“Wasn’t that what you were? A pampered princess who couldn’t deal with the big bad world so you ran? Princess.” “And who are you? The villain?” “I’m something much worse than the villain,” he sneered. “Something you’ll never find a definition for.”
“NO SMALL act of kindness goes unremembered.”
“Reven is a sadist who thinks he’s some divine being. This place is a hideaway for a very screwed up sex cult.”
“I’ve got your number, princess. Fucking you, touching you—anything I do to your body that will make you come—will break you.”
“My worst fear was that I would be trained for sex enslavement.”
“When people cut us, we are expected to do only two things: smile and bleed.”
“We are not defined by our lack of fear but rather by what we choose to do when facing the nightmare.”
“For no man who lives at all lives unto himself. He either helps or hinders all who are in anywise connected to him.”
“Just behind his jaw bones a tiny movement was perceptible, like the movement of gills in a fish.”

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.
