“Buying books is immensely comforting. Maybe I won’t read them immediately, but they make me feel so much better whenever I’m sad and blue. Just their presence, it’s like having more to look forward to.”

"Faulkner really gave me a kind of humanity that I might not have had. In that sense, literature is Eucharistic. You take somebody else’s suffering into your body and you’re changed by it, you’re made larger by their pain. You come to understand pain in a way that maybe otherwise you wouldn’t."

Mary Karr echoes the idea that reading is always an act of empathy and fiction an empathy-expander.  (via explore-blog)

"The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too."

"The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you."

"I think when it’s all over it just comes back in flashes, you know? It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories; it just all comes back.
But he never does.
I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. It’s not really anything he said, or anything he did; it was the feeling that came along with it. Crazy thing is, I don’t know if I’m ever going to feel that way again. But I don’t know if I should.
I knew his world moved too fast and burned to bright, but I just thought…
‘How can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?’
Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance.
I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him. It was losing me."
