We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill, going more or less in one direction until we splash into something that forces us to find a new course.

Country boy shake it for me
The thing about me and books is that whichever one I’m reading always reminds me of whatever’s happening in my life during that time.
— Lauren Barnholdt, The Thing About the Truth (via bookmania)
Open a book this minute and start reading. Don’t move until you’ve reached page fifty. Until you’ve buried your thoughts in print. Cover yourself with words. Wash yourself away. Dissolve.
— Carol Shields, The Republic of Love (via bookmania)
I swear I only want to hear about you, to know what you’ve been doing. It’s a hundred years since we’ve met―it may be another hundred before we meet again.
— Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence (via bookmania)
I can listen no longer in silence. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. I have loved none but you.
I like books that aren’t just lovely but that have memories in themselves. Just like playing a song, picking up a book again that has memories can take you back to another place or another time.
