When I read a great book, I might forget a minor character’s name or the year it was published, but I never forget my favorite passages. The best book quotes are like that — they stay with you long after you’ve finished the book, and they often pop into your head at unexplained moments. Not to mention, they cover the walls of your bedroom, fronts of your tote bags, and they’re quite possibly even the words inscribed on your body somewhere. I get it, book quotes can be pretty incredible.
For me, the best book quotes of all time are the ones that are there for me when I need them, whether it’s the happiest day of my life or the hardest one. They’re words of advice or inspiration, bits of rare beauty, or even raw moments of pain that are so perfectly expressed, they become unforgettable. They can be intimate expressions of love or brutal confessions of the truth, the perfect scene painted in with words, or the deepest emotion rendered in a sentence. From children’s books to literary fiction to nonfiction, every genre is filled with great book quotes that strike a chord in your heart and just stick with you.
Here are 17 of the greatest book quotes of all time, and although every book has at least a line or two worth remembering, these ones top the rest.
