"The odd thing about people who had many books was how they always wanted more."
— Patricia A. McKillip, The Bell at Sealey Head (via observando)
"I love books. Take that book you’re holding! It looks ill-written, ill-conceived, full of bad ideas expressed badly - I bet it lacks narrative arcs and an appreciation for the flow of language. It looks like the worst book in the history of books! But here’s the thing - it’s still a book. And I love books. So, you do not deserve to even hold it."
