"If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (via observando)

"There is a difference between a book of two hundred pages from the very beginning, and a book of two hundred pages which is the result of an original eight hundred pages. The six hundred are there. Only you don’t see them."

Elie Wiesel (via observando)

"A slip of the foot you may soon recover, but a slip of the tongue you may never get over."

Benjamin Franklin (via observando)

"Most people carry that pain around inside them their whole lives, until they kill the pain by other means, or until it kills them. But you, my friends, you found another way: a way to use the pain. To burn it as fuel, for light and warmth. You have learned to break the world that has tried to break you."

Lev Grossman (via observando)
