Magnus liked a quote
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Caring too much for objects can destroy you. Only—if you care for a thing enough, it takes on a life of its own, doesn’t it? And isn’t the whole point of things—beautiful things—that they connect you to some larger beauty?Donna Tartt

“It was comparable to getting sick from bad ventilation”
Alice Munro, Too Much Happiness

Rachel Joyce
“But maybe it's what the world needs. A little less sense, and a little more faith.”
Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Donna Tartt
“Caring too much for objects can destroy you. Only—if you care for a thing enough, it takes on a life of its own, doesn’t it? And isn’t the whole point of things—beautiful things—that they connect you to some larger beauty?”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Rachel Joyce
“He must have driven this way countless times, and yet he had no memory of the scenery. He must have been so caught up in the day's agenda, and arriving punctually at their destination, that the land beyond the car had been no more than a wash of one green, and a backdrop of one hill. Life was very different when you walked through it.”
Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Rachel Joyce
“I miss her all the time. I know in my head that she has gone. The only difference is that I am getting used to the pain. It's like discovering a great hole in the ground. To begin with, you forget it's there and keep falling in. After a while, it's still there, but you learn to walk round it.”
Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
