“It seems to me them that sees an evil thing unfold and don't do nothin' to prevent it, are just as bad as them that does the evil.”
― Kate Constable, quote from The Singer of All Songs


“all the gods are the same unknowable mystery, just as each face of a jewel strikes light in a different direction”
― Kate Constable, quote from The Singer of All Songs


“...There is a tale, as old as the Ancient Ones themselves, that one would arise who has that gift: to sing all the chantments, the high notes and the low, the swift rhythms and the slow. And this person would be more powerful than even the Ancient Ones were, as powerful as the gods themselves.”
― Kate Constable, quote from The Singer of All Songs


“Calwyn stopped in her tracks, and her song faltered on her lips. For the space of a heartbeat she thought she must be dreaming; the steady chantment she’d been singing without pause since dawn jerked almost into silence.”
― Kate Constable, quote from The Singer of All Songs


“Calwyn felt suddenly very solemn and serious. Usually during lessons and lectures she felt only a fierce desire to be elsewhere or an irresistible urge to fidget, but now she sat as still as a statue, sensing that what Marna was about to tell her was more important, and certainly more interesting, than herb lore or weaving patterns.”
― Kate Constable, quote from The Singer of All Songs

Popular quotes

“I was tested for a reason I was put on trial to see if I was worthy”
― Cameo Renae, quote from Hidden Wings


“His unconscious was rapidly becoming a well-stocked pantheon of tutelary phobias and obsessions, homing onto his already over-burdened psyche like lost telepaths.”
― J.G. Ballard, quote from The Drowned World


“Todo está en tu mente Cualquier cosa que albergues en tu mente tenderá a suceder en tu vida. Si continúas creyendo como siempre has creído, continuarás actuando como siempre has actuado. Si continúas actuando como siempre has actuado, continuarás obteniendo lo que siempre has obtenido. Si quieres resultados diferentes en tu vida o en tu trabajo, lo único que tienes que hacer es cambiar tu mentalidad.”
― Joyce Meyer, quote from Power Thoughts: 12 Strategies to Win the Battle of the Mind


“The truth is that, when it comes to sex, selfishness is pretty typical with guys."

"Great. How infinitely comforting."

"I don't mean they're all jerks. I just mean it's more common for them to go about sex focusing on what they want rather than ensuring that you get what you want. Sabrina shook her head and clicked her tongue. "It's a sad fact of the world.”
― Claire Kent, quote from Escorted


“Had I managed to fall into some sort of carnivorous plant? Yeah, bleed on the man-eating plant. Always a good plan.”
― Diana Rowland, quote from Touch of the Demon

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.
