“My life with Beh was beautiful, transcending everything that set us apart from each other.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“I will provide for her. I will protect her. I will give her anything she wants.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“In the darkness of the cave, there is a light inside her eyes that makes my heart beat faster. I know the emotions I see there are also reflected in my own gaze though I have never felt this way before. Beh softly repeats the same three sounds, followed by my name-sound.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“Elizabeth."
I feel my smile on my face as I understand what she is doing. Though it's a strange one, she has a name-sound just like I do, and she's telling me what it is. I try to make the same sounds.
"Ehh..beh." I frown. Why is her name-sound so difficult and so long?
She frowns right back at me and says it again. "Elizabeth."
"Beh-tah-babaa."
She sighs and her forehead wrinkles.
"Elizabeth. Eeee-lizzzz-ahh-beth."
"Laahh...baaay."
She taps her chest again.
"Beth!"
The sound is shorter but still very odd.
"Beh-bet."
"Beth," she repeats.
I've had enough. I reach out and touch her should.
"Beh."
"Beth."
I tap her a little harder and growl.
"Beh", I repeat. I tap her again. "BEH!"
Her eyes widen a bit, and she inhales sharply. A moment later, her shoulders drop and she sighs.
"Beh," she says quietly.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“I don't care if she ever makes a basket that can hold grain, but I want her to be here with me. I want her to be close to me as I work or fish, and I want her to lie next to me in the furs at night. In my mind, she is with me always and forever.
Finally, its clear to me that I want her for more than children.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence



“She may be strange; she may not know how to make baskets, and she may be very noisy, but she is my mate, and I'm thrilled she is here.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“Beh reaches up and touches my cheek.
“Love,” she whispers.

“Luffs!” I respond, and her smile brightens even more.

Without a doubt, I will do anything for her.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“I definitely like it--lips and mouths and tongues together. When my tongue runs over my own lips, I can taste her there, and it's as if she's laid claim to me.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“My mate is really, really weird.

She is also absolutely covered in brown, mushy clay.

She laughs and holds a large lump up to show it to me. Her mouth moves, and she makes enough noise to scare away a group of birds near the shore.

She is so, so strange.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“I wish she weren’t so noisy, but I’m willing to endure the noise to have her with me.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence



“My life with Beh was beautiful, trascending everything that set us apart from each other”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“I never gave her a mating gift, and I want to give her this today so I can put a baby in her tonight.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“Love,” she whispers.
“Luffs!” I respond, and her smile brightens even more.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“I hope if I am patient, she will let me put a baby inside of her soon.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“I wonder how her tribe can make such strange and complicated clothing but not even know how to wear a simple wrap!”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence



“Beh wakes slowly to my gentle touches on her neck, shoulder, and ear.  For a moment, she rolls over and tucks her head into my chest.  She pulls the fur up around her head and hides underneath it. My mate does not like waking up in the morning, and it makes me smile when she does this.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence


“she rolls up a few scraps of fur into a small ball and places it under her head when she sleeps. My mate is strange.”
― Shay Savage, quote from Transcendence

Popular quotes

“To protect civilians, the state needs sometimes to do things that are contrary to democratic behavior. It is true that in units like ours the outer limits can become blurred. That's why you must be sure that your people are of the best quality. The dirtiest actions should be carried out by the most honest men.”
― Michael Bar-Zohar, quote from Mossad: The Greatest Missions of the Israeli Secret Service


“So they really put in a bid on the piece of property we’ve been salivating over for the last four years?” Airiana asked. “Well, Lexi’s been salivating over. I presume they plan on joining the two properties.”
“That’s the plan,” Lexi said. She couldn’t hide her smile and this time she didn’t try. “The soil is really good. There’s a very large section of forest that is just awesome as well. I’ve been talking to Thomas about possibly getting a few llamas. The manure is excellent for plants.”
Airiana groaned. “It’s too early in the morning to be talking about manure, Lexi, especially in such an enthusiastic tone.”

-Airiana & Lexi”
― Christine Feehan, quote from Air Bound


“The sign that you have this virtue is patience, and impatience the sign that you have it not, and you will find that this is indeed so, when I speak to you further concerning this virtue.”
― Catherine of Siena, quote from The Dialogue of Saint Catherine of Siena


“I’ve been slowly falling for you for a long time, and I’m afraid I fell the rest of the way in love
with you last night, and you’re so much more than my darling. You’re my treasure”
― Kristen Proby, quote from Forever with Me


“He paused, and I knew he was delving again in a mind larger and darker than even his great library.”
― Gene Wolfe, quote from Shadow and Claw

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.
