"Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack."
"Novels aren’t just happy escapes; they are slivers of people’s souls, nailed to the pages, dripping ink from veins of wood pulp. Reading the right one at the right time can make all the difference."
Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians series (via alighthouseofwords)
"Don’t wear a cross around your neck if all you’re going to do is complain about the one on your back."
