“Everything is made up of energy, and where there is energy, there is potential.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“Like with all other things in life, magic is just a solution that offers its own set of complications.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“I had come to realize that it is possible for someone to go too far to be forgiven. The best you could do was walk away and pray they didn’t try to follow you.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“The old ones exist outside the dimension we experience as linear time. Bound as most of us are by the flow of time, we aren’t able to experience their machine as a functioning whole. From any given point in our timeline, one part of the machine is viewed as having existed in the past. Another in the future. The only moment when it is possible for us to experience their device as a functioning whole is when it is flipped on. The image your subconscious carries is of the moment when our planet was about to be destroyed. That moment transcends history; it exists in the past, in the future—” “And in the now,”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“But I will always be hers.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“A sense of guilt. A soul ends up in Gehenna not because of what she did in life, but because of the shame she feels for her choices, her failures.” She looked up at me. “Most of these people aren’t evil. They aren’t even bad.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“You suppose you are a harmless flame, when you are in truth a nuclear blast.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“No,” she said and turned her empty eyes”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“Sometimes people get too lost for the saving.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“Some souls eventually let go of their pain and find their own way out,” she said, slowly turning her attention from me to Aunt Iris. “Others stay trapped. The demonic faces you saw there—they aren’t demons. They are humans who have been in Gehenna too long. Gehenna has twisted them. Squeezed every last drop of humanity out of them. They grow so dense, so dark, so heavy that sometimes one will drop out of Gehenna and back into our reality. Their perversion causes them to tempt others into doing things that may land them in Gehenna too.” Maisie shuddered. “You’ve seen them,” she said addressing Abby. “The shadow people who always seem to be flitting at the corner of your eye. They crave the light you carry.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“The inhabitants of the highest order, those who have been bred to contain the greatest concentration of the old ones’ ‘pure’ blood, they build the machine, and as their home planets breathe their last gasps, the chosen ones leave behind the corpse of their mothers. They spread out through the universe like a virus, scouting new and suitable targets for exploitation.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“I opened myself with all my heart and soul to my child. I made a promise then and there, that no matter what, I’d do what it took to protect him,”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“Her preferred method of war was to wear away at the edges and sow seeds of uncertainty and doubt.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“September questions every choice, till October chills the air.” Colin sang the words to a melody I did not recognize. “November swears the days grow not short, till dark December her lie lays bare.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“So many holes had formed in my heart, I could almost hear the wind whistling through it.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“Sweet, handsome, and willing to help hide the bodies without asking a single question. He really was a keeper.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“he had been my life for more than half of it. We had been inseparable since childhood; we had played, explored, broken rules, and at times broken each other’s hearts. I loved him to the core of my soul. I couldn’t really imagine my life going on without him. I felt somehow betrayed it could. Still, I couldn’t allow myself the luxury of denying we’d come to the end of our adventures together. I had tried to prepare myself. I had tried to brace myself for impact. Now in the moment of that crash, I felt the world should stop. That my heart should stop beating and my soul should be sucked into an insensate void, but that was not to happen.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“I don’t give a donkey’s damn what you want.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“History might cough, but in a day or so, it will feel just fine.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“Where God is, there is no need or even room for change or growth. For God to create, he, she, it . . . whatever you want to call God, had to get out of the way. God created ten blank spaces, ten points both within himself and yet where he was not. Together these points form the great void, where all realities come into existence.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“The change in their attitude was not overt, but I still felt a chill in my heart as true friendship turned to mere politeness. All the same it hurt like hell to be rejected by the people of the city I loved, no matter how polite they were when building the walls between us.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


“so has Iris. No time for self-pity now, though. She will find time to fall apart.”
― J.D. Horn, quote from The Void


About the author

Popular quotes

“These are the three main diseases of this country, sir: typhoid, cholera, and election fever. This last one is the worst; it makes people talk and talk about things that they have no say in ... Would they do it this time? Would they beat the Great Socialist and win the elections? Had they raised enough money of their own, and bribed enough policemen, and bought enough fingerprints of their own, to win? Like eunuchs discussing the Kama Sutra, the voters discuss the elections in Laxmangarh.”
― Aravind Adiga, quote from The White Tiger


“So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.”
― Virginia Woolf, quote from A Room of One's Own


“Do not work primarily for money; do your duty to patients first and let the money follow; our life is short, we don't live twice; the whirlwind will pick up the leaves and spin them, but then it will drop them and they will form a pile.”
― John Hersey, quote from Hiroshima


“Listen, lady," he said in a high voice, "if I had of been there I would of known and I wouldn't be like I am now." His voice seemed about to crack and the grandmother's head cleared for an instant. She saw the man's face twisted close to her own as if he were going to cry and she murmured, "Why you're one of my babies. You're one of my own children!" She reached out and touched him on the shoulder. The Misfit sprang back as if a snake had bitten him and shot her three times through the chest.”
― Flannery O'Connor, quote from A Good Man is Hard to Find and Other Stories


“He knew that beauty faded quickly when embodied by selfishness,”
― Francine Rivers, quote from A Voice in the Wind

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 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.
