Book cover for My Year of Rest and Relaxation
OH, SLEEP. Nothing else could ever bring me such pleasure, such freedom, the power to feel and move and think and imagine, safe from the miseries of my waking consciousness.

“No loss is felt more keenly than the loss of what might have been. No nostalgia hurts as much as nostalgia for things that never existed.”

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
"the book didn't live up my expectation (probably bc of the too-much hype that surrounds it), it's still important nonetheless! The character development completed the book; it was very point on, which is also the main medium sending the message th..." Read more of this review »

“Sure I worried that writing about it might be a mistake. You write a thing down because you're hoping to get a hold on it. You write about experiences partly to understand what they mean, partly not to lose them to time. To oblivion. But there's always the danger of the opposite happening. Losing the memory of the experience itself to the memory of writing about it. Like people whose memories of places they've traveled to are in fact only memories of the pictures they took there. In the end, writing and photography probably destroy more of the past than they ever preserve of it. So it could happen: by writing about someone lost - or even just talking too much about them - you might be burying them for good.”
Sigrid Nunez, The Friend

“What we miss - what we lose and what we mourn - isn't it this that makes us who, deep down, we truly are. To say nothing of what we wanted in life but never got to have.”

“I know this is all moronically anthropomorphic, but sometimes that is the form love takes.”

“They don’t commit suicide. They don’t weep. But they can and do fall to pieces. They can and do have their hearts broken. They can and do lose their minds.”

“there is at least one book in you that cannot be written by anyone else but you. My advice is to dig deep and find”
