"You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend."
"We don’t need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They’re always with us. We just sort of accumulate them."
"I am happy. I think I really am. But then I get sad. And sometimes it overwhelms me how sad I can get."
