Elizabeth von Arnim
“But it is impossible, I find, to tidy books without ending by sitting on the floor in the middle of a great untidiness and reading.”
Elizabeth von Arnim, In the Mountains

M.L. Stedman
“Scars are just another kind of memory.”

Rachel Joyce
“Now that he accepted the slowness of himself, he took pleasure in the distance he covered.
