Audrey asked:

I loaned out my book, and I was just wondering if anyone remembers or can find a quote. It was something along the lines of (paraphrasing) "I don't remember what I read except how it changes my view of the world". Thanks!

E.B.K.K. I think you mean this quote by Michel de Montaigne:

“I leaf through books, I do not study them. What I retain of them is something I no longer recognize as anyone else’s.
It is only the material from which my judgment has profited, and the thoughts and ideas with which it has become imbued;
the author, the place, the words, and other circumstances, I immediately forget.”

It's in chapter 7, around page 170.
