“I know,” I say, slapping the ash off my palm. The words rush from my mouth before she says them. It’s easier to hear it in my own voice. “I ruined your body. Killed your husband.”
“Dad rattles the leash he brought in with him, and the noise causes an explosion of doggy joy beside me.”
“My mouth fell open. “Is this real life? You’re giving me your dog?” He chuckled. “Yeah. My dog that was supposed to be the consolation prize when our parents forced me to go back to public school. My dog that sleeps in your room and that you walk and feed every day.”
“I know there are some who say that because we shared a home and DNA with Kirby, my parents and I deserve to be arrested, tortured, or even killed. At”
“He was part of our family, and we weren’t wrong for loving him.” Part”
“If you’re ready,” I say, wiping my eyes while he blows his nose, “we should head to the funeral home. Do you think they allow dogs in there?”
“Teddy complained to the camp leader that his pack was too heavy, the camp leader mocked him.”
“He was . . . nice,” Teddy says. “He was really nice to me. Remember Rick?” His dad nods, frowning. “That kid was a dick.” “Well, Kirby stopped him from being a dick to me.” Something”
“The victory Mark had been feeling swelled for a moment, crescendoing into a strange sort of joy. Kirby looked defeated. No, more than that. He looked broken. The expression in Kirby’s eyes dragged Mark’s joy down with it. The”
“I’m saying you’re acting like a jerk, and I don’t want to hang out with a jerk.” “Are you breaking up with me?” he asked. Katelyn let out a frustrated noise. “You don’t get it at all, do you?”
“Keith Richards I remember. There was a horse backstage that week, and I was in my dressing area and I saw Keith Richards go up, hold the horse’s face in his hands, and go, “You’re a fine horse, aren’t you?” I’ll never forget that.”
“Randy cradles my head, his palm resting at the nape of my neck. “Now you want the lights on?” “I want to see your face when I fuck you.”
“It’s funny how we always search for reasons not to love—fear of suffering, fear of abandonment—but the love of life, oh, how much you can take for granted until you realize that, one day, you’re going to lose all of it.”
“But leadership is not inherited. It is earned through action. You are a leader, Eva Nine. A hero. And you are my WondLa" -Rovender”
“How could you let him do this? (Shahara)
I know you’re not going to pin this on me, Shay. I didn’t raise the embryo. You did. It’s what you get for teaching him things like honor, love, courage, and loyalty. If you’d left him a scared little snot-nose, he’d still be living in your basement. (Vik)”
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.
