“I feel rather a fool writing down my thoughts”
“I tried to make each half sandwich last for three full bites, though I could easily have popped them into my mouth whole.”
“Mrs. Carstairs is terribly excited about being aboard this particular ship, as it is the Titanic's maiden voyage, and she is suppose to be the largest ever built.”
“These are hard memories, and I will save the rest of the story for another time.”
“It is my last night here, and I suddenly feel quite tearful, sitting up in my usual window.”
“Here I am, in a lovely hotel room, with my own bathroom. I have never experienced such incredible luxury.”
“Then, all of a sudden, there was a great black hull, stretching farther than my eye could see.”
“Every cook knows it's a rare day when you have all the parts of the perfect dish. But that day back at Mawton I had everything I needed: white fleshed pippins, pink quince, and a cinnamon stick that smelled like a breeze from the Indies. My flour was clean, my butter as yellow as a buttercup.”
“I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as dumb as the next guy. –Richard Feynman”
“You don't stop running because you get old, you get old because you stop running.”

“All that I wanted, I received
All that I dreamed, I achieved
All that I feared, I conquered

All that I loved, I saved

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.
