― G.P. Ching, quote from The Soulkeepers


“What if believing was not about the good in the world? What if people had faith not because of what some superior being could do for them but what they could do when the light of something bigger than any one individual awakened within them--for the sake of others?

Maybe, his mistake was thinking it was about him, his own future, his own soul, and not about this: the world needed the good that was in him.”

― G.P. Ching, quote from The Soulkeepers

― G.P. Ching, quote from The Soulkeepers


“The world outside was a rolling sea and he was on a raft without a paddle. There was nothing to anchor him and no way to shore.”
― G.P. Ching, quote from The Soulkeepers

― G.P. Ching, quote from The Soulkeepers

If evil had been here since the dawn of time, maybe goodness was also here.

― G.P. Ching, quote from The Soulkeepers


“in our apartment. I don’t even remember getting into the car with her.” “She’s missing, Jacob.” “Missing?” he said, sitting up in bed despite the pain. “But she must’ve been in the car with me. How could they have rescued me and not her?” “You were inside the car when they found it. She wasn’t.” “But that doesn’t make any sense.”

Only a few miles away, bikini-clad tourists stretched out on the sand of Waikiki beach. While they toasted themselves golden brown, Jacob lay on a steel surgical table, broken and bleeding. He’d heard that when a person died they saw a tunnel that ended in a bright light. If the person moved toward the light, God or some already deceased loved one like a great-grandmother would meet them on the other side. Jacob didn’t believe it. He’d accepted that everything would end in black nothingness and, for him, it did. What”

Popular quotes

“There's a place beyond words where experience first occurs to which I always want to return. I suspect that whenever I articulate my thoughts or translate my impulses into words, I am betraying the real thoughts and impulses which remain hidden.”
― Jerzy Kosiński, quote from The Painted Bird


“I've already lost a piece of my mind. I can't trust you with what's left.”
― Katie McGarry, quote from Pushing the Limits


“Man without life companion is either god or beast.”
― Vikram Seth, quote from A Suitable Boy


“The only way to beat my crazy was by doing something even crazier. Thank you. I love you. I knew it from the moment I saw you. I'm sorry it took me so long to catch up.”
― Matthew Quick, quote from The Silver Linings Playbook


“You don’t have a soul, so you can’t be baptized. All animals are like that. I think it’s unfair and sometimes I don’t believe it. After all, what would heaven be without birds or dogs or horses? And what about trees and flowers? They don’t have souls either. Does that mean heaven looks like a cement parking lot? I suppose this is what the nuns call a theological problem.”
― Nancy Farmer, quote from The House of the Scorpion

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.
