“Is there any person in the world who does not dream? Who does not contain within them worlds unimagined?”
― Neil Gaiman, quote from World's End


“So, if a city has a personality, maybe it also has a soul. Maybe it dreams.”

“I don't really like driving in the snow. There's something about the motion of the falling snowflakes that hurts my eyes, throws my sense of balance all to hell. It's like tumbling into a field of stars.”
― Neil Gaiman, quote from World's End

“Nothing you do in the White House matters. You know why not? Because as far as the mass of voting morons is concerned, while you're in office, you'll still be the worst single president they've ever had until you stop. Then it's some other poor bastard's turn. And even that doesn't matter, because ten, twenty years later, they'll look back on you, and wonder why they didn't appreciate you when they had you...You don't get to make a difference. You don't get to do jack shit. You know what you get?...You get an entry in the history book, and every 15 minutes, every day at Disneyworld, an animatronic puppet wearing your face will wave or nod when the spotlight hits it.”
― Neil Gaiman, quote from World's End



“In the manner of one recognizing a line from a familiar poem in a strange book.”
― Neil Gaiman, quote from World's End


“¿Acaso hay alguien en el mundo que no sueñe, que no contenga en su interior mundos no imaginados?”
― Neil Gaiman, quote from World's End

Popular quotes

“Eventually, the Pat's of this world forgot about you and moved on to someone else. The worst part was that deep down inside, you knew that there was a truth to everything they said. And even if that truth wasn't bad or good, they still owned part of it. They owned a piece of you.”
― Peter Monn, quote from The Before Now and After Then


“There is always a thought of marriage between a single female and a personable gentleman, if not in his mind, quite certainly in hers.”
― Georgette Heyer, quote from Regency Buck


“I was going to ask you,’ Nita said, ‘whether all that was what I thought it was.’
‘If you thought that dogs now finally have their own version of the One,’ said the Transcendent Pig, ‘then the answer is yes.’
Kit was shaking his head. ‘I can’t believe it,’ he whispered. ‘Are you trying to tell me that my dog—my dog was—’
‘Is. Yes, it’s the “spell-it-backward” joke again,’ the Pig said, with some resignation. ‘The One just loves those old jokes. The older, the better.’ It raised its bristly eyebrows. ‘Making a big BANG! and running off to hide behind the nearest chunk of physical existence, like some kid ringing the doorbell at Halloween. And the puns. Don’t get It started on the puns...you’ll be there forever.’ It smiled. ‘Literally. But what did you expect? Your dog started making universes out of nothing. That wasn’t a slight tip-off?’
‘And not just making them,’ Nita said. ‘Saving them.’
‘Or saving one person,’ Kit said.
‘It’s the same thing, I’m told,’ said the Pig, and it vanished.”
― Diane Duane, quote from Wizards at War


“يسمي الفرنسيون ذروة العناق "الموت الصغير", الذي يجمعنا فيما يفرقنا, و يعثر علينا فيما يفقدنا, هو بدايتنا كما هو نهايتنا. يسمونه موتاً صغيراً, لكنه ينبغي أن يكون عظيماً, هائلاً, لكي ينجبنا كما يقتلنا.”
― Eduardo Galeano, quote from The Book of Embraces


“I was a protestor. I was such a protestor that I regularly protested things that might have been good for me.”
― Maria Dahvana Headley, quote from The Year of Yes

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.
