“Even though it can be hopeless, or unhealthy, or just stupid, we love anyway. Because that’s what love is. Choosing to give it, especially when you shouldn’t.”
― Kelsey Sutton, quote from Where Silence Gathers


“I keep staring, and I wonder why we push people away. There are a thousands reasons, really, but I think the biggest one - the most important one - is if we don’t, they get close. And then they can see.”
― Kelsey Sutton, quote from Where Silence Gathers


“There’s no point, I want to shout back. Let me go.

But that’s what love is; holding on and holding tight no matter what. Through death, through pain, through everything. There’s a part of me that wants to turn back and be worthy of it.

I’m standing on the edge of that bridge, though, and I’m tilting forward. Falling. There is no turning back.”
― Kelsey Sutton, quote from Where Silence Gathers


“If I listen hard enough, I can almost hear the stars whispering to each other. Cruel, biting whispers.”
― Kelsey Sutton, quote from Where Silence Gathers


“The most painful emotions are better than none at all. Ironically, we make you human.”
― Kelsey Sutton, quote from Where Silence Gathers


“As infuriating as he was, I found Forgiveness ... interesting. It's been impossible to forget, the way he looked at me. Not like I'm a dealer selling the drug he wants, or just another duty to be carried though. No, Forgiveness stared at me as if I'm someone.

And that's a drug all its own.”
― Kelsey Sutton, quote from Where Silence Gathers


“With the taste of rum in my mouth and the sting of remembrance in my heart, I set my sights on the man who killed my family.”
― Kelsey Sutton, quote from Where Silence Gathers

“Yes?" she asked, eyeing me guardedly.
I struck out a hand and said "Shake."
Arra stared at the hand, then into my unfocused eyes. "One good fight doesn't make you a warrior," she said.
"Shake!" I repeated angrily.
"And if I don't?" she asked.
"I'll get back up on the bars and fight you till you do," I growled.
Arra studied me at length, then nodded and took my hand. "Power to you, Darren Shan," she said gruffly.
"Power," I repeated weakly, then fainted into her arms and knew no more till I came to in my hammock the next night.”
― Darren Shan, quote from Vampire Mountain


“It is widely believed that the snails did not even know they overthrew the shiners, so nonexistent was the resistance," said Howard.”
― Suzanne Collins, quote from Gregor and the Marks of Secret


“You get a dog on your mind, it seems to fill up the whole space. Everything you do reminds you of that dog. When”
― Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, quote from Shiloh


“Teachers, parents, guidance counselors... all of them are always pushing this crap about how it's okay to be different, just be yourself. Don't give in to peer pressure, blah, blah, blah. The truth is, it's really only okay to be yourself if that self is within an accepted range of "normal." You like soccer instead of basketball, Johnny? Well, okay, I guess, so long as you still like sports. What's that, Susie, you want to wear the blue sweater instead of the red? You know we're all about expressing individuality here... so long as it's still a sweater.”
― Stacey Kade, quote from The Ghost and the Goth


“Nothing about you or Wonderland makes sense. And the ‘one abiding truth’ is that life was so much easier when I’d forgotten your massive ego and that other world ever existed.”
A tremor shifts through his features, first fragile, then severe. His muscles twitch under his T-shirt, sending a tingling sensation through my knuckles. “You want me nonexistent?"

Before I can respond, he steps back and flips the hat from his head. Then he drags off his vest and his T-shirt, dropping them all on the floor at my feet. Once he’s peeled off his necklace and bracelets, he stands there facing me in only jeans and boots.

I watch him warily. “W-w-what are you doing?”

“I’m clearing the way for my massive ego.”
― A.G. Howard, quote from Unhinged

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 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.
