“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“If I listen hard enough, I can almost hear the stars whispering to each other. Cruel, biting whispers.”
“The most painful emotions are better than none at all. Ironically, we make you human.”
“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.”
“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.”
“The Chin have held us down for a long time, but that is over. We ride to war, brother.”
“Wesley looked down at her and Nora could barely meet his brown eyes, which bored into her with the fiery love of a guardian angel. God probably had eyes like Wesley's.....anyone who looked into them wanted to immediately apologize for any and all sins ever committed.”
“Хазары считают, что старость - это результат действия взглядов как своих на
собственное тело, так и чужих, потому что взгляды вспарывают и перепахивают тела самыми различными и убийственными
орудиями, которые создаются страстями, ненавистью, намерениями и желаниями.”
“I am willing to overlook your intense personal insecurities for the moment in order to inform you that I will not be able to attend the dedication tomorrow night, as I have alternate plans.
I will elaborate no more, for fear of further fraternal wrath.
I like that, further fraternal wrath. Maybe I’ll put that in my novel.
Fraternally yours, your faithful brother,
“She felt his arms tighten around her, as they spiraled up, borne aloft on wings that were dark as the night, bright as a new star.”
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.
