“We are what we love to read, and when we admit to loving a book, we admit that the book represents some aspect of ourselves truly, whether it is that we are suckers for romance or pining for adventure or secretly fascinated by crime.”
Nina Sankovitch, Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading
tags: books

“Books are reason to get up in the morning.”
Nina Sankovitch

“It is a gift we humans have, to hold on to beauty felt in a moment for a lifetime.”

“..hard to trust that after so much had been taken, so much could still be received.”
Tatjana Soli

“Wasn't that the definition of home? Not where you are from, but where you are wanted”
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone

“The life of a snail is as full of tasty food, comfortable beds of sorts, and a mix of pleasant and not-so-pleasant adventures as that of anyone I know”
Elisabeth Tova Bailey, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating

“Cold air rises from the ground as the sun goes down.  The eye-burning clarity of the light intensifies. The southern rim of the sky glows to a deeper blue, to pale violet, to purple, then thins to grey.  Slowly the wind falls, and the still air begins to freeze.  The solid eastern ridge is black; it has a bloom on it like the dust on the skin of a grape.  The west flares briefly.  The long, cold amber of the afterglow casts clear black lunar shadows.  There is an animal mystery in the light that sets upon the fields like a frozen muscle that will flex and wake at sunrise.”
J.A. Baker, The Peregrine

“I am the shadow of what we were, and while there is light we exist.”
Luis Sepúlveda, A sombra do que fomos

Nina Sankovitch Broke my heart, again and again.


Tracie I hope you love "The Fault in Our Stars" as much as I did. Frankie read the entire book out loud to me at The Huntington Museum/Gardens right after it came out in January. It is such a wonderful story.
