Book Lover Quotes

Book lovers can be found everywhere. Young, old or in between they’re likely to be found tucked in comfy corners, curled under a blanket holding their current book in one hand and a hot beverage of their choice in the other.

Whether they are fairy tales, murder mysteries, science fiction, historical romance or even biographies they all have something in common. No matter how different, they each have a story to tell that someone, somewhere is waiting to read.

Here are 10 quotes that book lovers would surely understand;

  1. “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.” J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings.
  2. “I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now… Come further up, come further in!” C. S. Lewis. The Chronicles of Narnia.
  3. “The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms.
  4. “He found himself understanding the wearisomeness of this life, where every path was improvisation and a considerable part of one’s waking life was spent watching one’s feet” William Golding, Lord of The Flies.
  5. “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.

  8. “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.
  9. “What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel they are joined for life — to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?” George Eliot, Adam Bede.
  10. “I loved her against all reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.” Charles Dickens, Great Expectations.

Books are portals to another world. They fill us with joy, love, pain, hope, and sorrow. We grow attached to the characters, the worlds they present, and our hearts overflow like a vessel far too small to hold everything we’re given.

These quotes give us a small peek into some of those wonderful worlds, they show us glimpses of characters we’ve yet to meet, places we have yet to explore and sometimes, an old friend waiting to welcome us back with open arms.

I hope these quotes inspire you to pick up a book and throw yourself, your heart and your imagination into another work of art just waiting to be explored.
