I love reading. I really do. I love how books allow me transcend my current physical and mental state and enter new realms. I love experiencing the world through the eyes and mind of another. I love how the words speak to me.
A few months ago I started writing down lines from a book I was reading. These were lines that I felt were exceedingly beautiful, or that simply appealed to me at that moment in time. This has now turned into a habit for every book that I read.
The line that started this all? It’s from The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao:
It’s never the changes we want that change everything.
