“I didn't used to be like this. I didn't believe in love and romance and swooning. My default setting was bitch”
“This is the second fucking time I've gotten shot when I was with you. I don't think we can be friends anymore.”
“Everything that tried to stand between us doesn't matter.
We might have broken a little.
But now we're stronger in those broken places.
And we're going to face whatever comes next together.”
“I was here.
This is a good way to go.”
“This is epic monument-style shit we're in.”
“Even though I wasn't there, you were always with me. Always.”
“I thought we had the kind of love that could do anything.”
“You suck at working with someone," I say, because it's true.”
“Instead of responding to me, he shakes his head and walks out of the room. And because I’m me, I follow. We are not done with this conversation.”
“Giving up on something is like admitting you never wanted it in the first place.”
“even high,” she said with a roll”
“So if animals aren't our friends, then what are they? The answer can be summed up between two buns.”
“The spirit of adventure sped through his soul on mighty wings.”
“Now, Neve, are you about to say no to me?' 'Well, it's just that—' 'Because the word "no" is not in my vocabulary, along with the words "can't" and "Victoria Beckham".”
“Lying in bed, she would alter the plots of the novels, the dialogue, and even the situations and locales to suit herself, but she never, ever, changed her imaginary hero. He and he alone remained ever constant, and she knew every detail about him, because she had designed him herself: He was strong and masculine and forceful, but he was kind and wise and patient and witty, as well. He was tall and handsome too--with thick dark hair and wonderful blue eyes that could be seductive or piercing or sparkle with humor. He would love to laugh with her, and she would tell him amusing anecdotes to make him do it. He would love to read, and he would be more knowledgeable than she and perharps a bit more worldly. But not too worldly or proud or sophisticated. She hated arrogance and stuffiness and she particularly disliked being arbitrarily ordered about. She accepted such things from the fathers of her students at school, but she knew she wouldn't be able to abide such a superior male attitude from a husband.”
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.
