― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“I am done being careful. I am done being quiet. Let them see me angry. Let them hear me wail at the top of my lungs.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer

― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer

― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer

― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer

― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer

― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer



“When had she stopped being a child? The first time a guy whistled at her out of a car window when she was walking to school? The moment she started wondering how she looked when she ran, what jiggled or bounced, instead of the pace she was setting? The first time she'd kept from raising her hand because she didn't want to seem too smart or too eager? No one had sung? No one had told her how much she would lose until the time for grieving was long over.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Sure we do," said Theo, swatting at a branch. "We get to the spring, Alia gets cured. We argue over the best choice for our We Saved The World victory dance."
"I do enjoy your optimism," said Diana.
"And I admire your ability to lift a car over your head without breaking a sweat and look fine as hell doing it," said Theo with a bow.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Truth means something different when it's given freely.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Human courage was different from Amazon bravery. She saw that now. For all the suspicion and derision she'd heard from her mother and her sisters about the mortal world, Diana couldn't help but admire the people with whom she traveled. Their lives were violent, precarious, fragile, but they fought for them anyway, and held to the hope that their brief stay on this earth might count for something. That faith was worth preserving.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“You do not enter a race to lose”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer



“You cannot make this kind of decision," he said. "Go off with someone you barely know. You're seventeen."
"And you're the guy who got drunk on eggnog last Christmas and danced to 'Turn The Beat Around' in Aunt Rachel's wig, so stop acting like you're in charge."
"We agreed not to mention that ever again," Jason whispered furiously.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“You dance differently when you know you won't live forever.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“I miss a good cup of tea, dancing, boys- definitely not rain."
"We dance," Diana protested.
Maeve had just laughed. "You dance differently when you know you won't live forever.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Yes, supermodels have the power to make you buy things you don't need and feel terrible about yourself.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Diana searched her memory for everything she’d been told about mortals, the soft stuff—eating habits, body temperature, cultural norms. Unfortunately, her mother and her tutors were more focused on what Diana referred to as the Dire Warnings: War. Torture. Genocide. Pollution. Bad Grammar.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer



“They would never know what she'd done, the quest she'd completed. There would be no songs sung about it, no stories of glory shared. It didn't matter. She knew who she was and the ordeal she'd faced. She was an Amazon. The knowledge burned like a secret flame inside her, a light no one could extinguish, no matter what names they called her.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Slow and steady wins the race."
"That is almost always untrue."
"Take it up with Aesop."
"Aesop never existed. The stories credited to him were the work of two female slaves."
"That sounds about typical. I'll ponder it on the way down.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“And were you never a reckless, stubborn girl?”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“What about your family?"
"Please. They have to tell me I'm a good designer. That's their job."
Diana thought of her mother saying, I didn't expect you to win. "Not necessarily."
"Oh man, do you have one of those though-love families? I just don't buy into that."
"Why not?" Diana asked cautiously.
"Because the whole world loves to tell us what we can't do, that we aren't good enough. The people in your own house should be on your side. It's the people who never learn the word impossible who make history, because they're the ones who keep trying.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Diana wondered if it got tiring being splendid all the time. Maybe heroes were just like that.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer



“You may well be my equal in strength,” she said. “But you are no match for Nim’s ingenuity, for Theo’s resilience, for Alia’s bravery. Might does not make a hero. You can build a thousand soldiers, and not one will have a hero’s heart.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“One of the bullets pinged off her right wrist and struck his thigh. He yelped. She grabbed him by his collar.
"What are you?" he gasped.
A hundred answers came to mind, but she opted for the easiest one. "A tourist."
She tossed him into the reflecting pool.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Have you met Diana?” Theo said. “Diana, this is my father, Michael Santos. The savior of Keralis Labs. He’s quite the strategist, but not what I would call a lot of fun.” Michael ignored him and offered Diana his hand. “A pleasure. Are you one of Alia’s friends from Bennett? She’s usually with that pudgy little Indian girl.” “I’m not sure who you mean,” said Diana, feeling her anger prickle. “I’ve only met her friend Nim, the brilliant designer.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“If you cannot bear our pain, you are not fit to carry our strength.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer


“Holy shit, are you guys some kind of radical feminist cult?"
Diana frowned. "Not exactly?"
"Are you all lesbians?"
"Of course not."
"It's cool if you are. Nim's gay. Maybe bi. She's figuring it out."
"Who's Nim?"
"My best friend." My only friend, Alia did not add.
"Some like men, some like women, some like both, some like nothing at all."
"But why no guys, then?"
"It's a long story.”
― Leigh Bardugo, quote from Wonder Woman: Warbringer

“Okay, now you really don’t need to do that blushing virgin bit anymore—I got to ogle your body at my leisure for hours. Matter of fact, I had so long, I could have painted you, instead of just taking pictures with my sat-phone.” He held up his phone with a wink.

“Do not ever attempt to leave me again, Tempest,” he murmured so softly that she barely caught the words. There was an unguarded ache in his voice that brought a fresh flood of tears to her eyes. In her life, no one had ever wanted her. No one had ever needed her. Certainly no one had ever been so loving and caring toward her. For all his overbearing, dominating ways, she couldn’t ever say he didn’t put her first. She couldn’t say her heart wasn’t totally captivated. He had woven a spell around her so strong, she didn’t think the tie could ever be broken. As”

“You try and act so tough, you think you're so damn hopeless and godless and faithless, but you don't fool me. People without hope aren't tormented by the world the way you are. People without hope don't give a shit. but I see it in you, in the way you look at things, even in the way you look at me sometimes, like I'm the coolest fucking guy in the universe, and I know it's in there. Reverence. Belief. Something. You have a lot more faith than you own up to. You just don't want to be let down. But I'm not going to let you down again. Not if I can help it.”
― Tiffanie DeBartolo, quote from God-Shaped Hole

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 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.
