From the English Patient by Michael Odaatje (I think I spelled that right): "She entered the story knowing she would emerge from it feeling she had been immersed in the lives of others, in plots that stretched back twenty years, her body full of sentences and moments, as if awaking from sleep with a heaviness caused by unremembered dreams."And from Eudora Welty: "I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them; with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself."And William Makepeace Thackeray: "There are thousands of thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen and writes." Great post idea, guys!
Thanks, Jillian. These are great!
