“Maybe that was love. Choking sounds and silence”
Toni Morrison. The Bluest Eye
‘Tis the good reader that makes the good book; in every book he finds passages which seem confidences or asides hidden from all else and unmistakably meant for his ear; the profit of books is according to the sensibility of the reader; the profoundest thought or passage sleeps as in a mine, until it is discovered by an equal mind and heart.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
