“My crazy's working a lot better than your sanity.”
“It's a snake, then.'
I was taking this extremely well. 'We have to kill it. By we, of course, I mean you. I'll stand here and scream.”
“We think a person should do right because it's right, not because their soul will be in eternal jeopardy if they don't toe the line.”
“You come from Planet Hunk, sent to Earth to protect and serve. And make the ladies happy.”
“Can either one of you actually fly?"
I heard cursing over the radios.”
“Do I really run like that?" (Kitty)
"Yup," Martini confirmed. "Don't worry, I think it's sexy."
"Thank God. I think I look like a cheetah on drugs.”
“I'll marry you before any tree on Earth.”
“Kitty, do you have the bottle?"
"In my purse. Which is in my room. Not that I think I can find my room from here."
"I'll get it," Martini said. He stood up and disappeared. Ten seconds later he was back, bottle in hand.
"What kept you?"
"That purse gets worse every time I look inside.”
“Once you go alien, you really do never go back.”
“What song would lull a snake into submission? "John Mayer?"
"Over my dead body."
"Could be, Tim, could be.”
“I think you're cute when the power goes to your head.”
“You ever flown something before?" (Christopher)
"I hold the highest score at A.S.U. for Star Wars: Starfighter." (Kitty)
"I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I'm going to regret this." (Christopher)”
“We lifted up and then bobbed.
"Back! Pull it back!" (Christopher)
"It's hard." (Kitty)
"The ground is harder!" (Christopher)”
“Great. I was housing with the Extreme Morning Militants. What a joy.”
“I was on the floor. "Um, a little help?"
Christopher put his hand down. Martini cleared his throat and Christopher's hand retracted.
"I can handle it, thanks."
"There's nothing amorous about pulling someone off the floor," Christopher muttered.
"There is when I do it.”
“Suddenly, I can see you weren’t bragging – once you go alien, you really do never go back.”
“Superfast beings shouldn't piss off the comics geek-girl.”
“Hello, Uncle Brother Zachariah," James said without opening his eyes. "I would say that I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm sure this is the most excitement you've had all year. Not so lively in the City of Bones, now is it?"
"James!" Will snapped. "Don't talk to Jem like that."
"As if I am not used to badly behaved Herondales, Brother Zachariah said, in the way Jem had always tried to make peace between Will and the world.”
“ومنكمشة على نفسها ، مرت الأيام وهي نائمة ، كأن الأحلام هي الواقع الوحيد الذي يغويها .”
“Laketon Elementary School was in the middle of a medium-size town in the middle of New Jersey. There was a reason Dave was in the middle of his fourth hour of not talking, but this isn’t the time to tell about that. This is the time to tell what he figured out in the middle of his social studies class.”
“He can’t play
when someone is watching him,” Justin almost sang into my ear. “Totally screws
“But you all
are watching him,” I pointed out.
At the back of
the room, someone laughed. “Yeah, but we’re not girls.”
“Will parts his lips and is about to speak, when a horrible din peals through the quiet of the cave. ”
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.
