I’ve always felt a pull towards books. Worlds beyond imagination inside, that are only possible if I kept reading. The creation of people in my mind with worlds and emotion. The ability to consume novels is something I encourage those around me to do nonstop. It’s an outlet I’d be lost without. In World War Two the nazis burned books they believed to be against their mission. I couldn’t imagine setting a flame upon pages, and burning an extension of somebody. That’s essentially what books are. They have the ability to put feelings into words, and the ability to make you not feel alone in those feelings. This list is just ten of the quotes I adore and use as motivation. I use it to remind me of the emotion I felt when I read it. Just because I finished the final chapter, doesn’t mean the story ever left me.
