“I feel free and strong. If I were not a reader of books I could not feel this way.”
Walter Tevis

“I feel free and strong. If I were not a reader of books I could not feel this way. Whatever may happen to me, thank God that I can read, that I have truly touched the minds of other men.”
Walter Tevis, Mockingbird

“It's an entire world of just 64 squares. I feel safe in it. I can control it; I can dominate it. And it's predictable. So, if I get hurt, I only have myself to blame.”
Walter Tevis, The Queen's Gambit
