If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
― Robert Pattinson
Like dreams, transport you to universes that temporarily whisk you away from reality. They evoke thoughts and emotions that we tend to evade. Books are companions that share their own story with you, holding back nothing and saying what they know. They are merely letters strung together into words to create sentences, forming paragraphs that pierce the heart and test the mind. They teach you…but only if you are prepared to read between the lines. They ask questions…when we don’t have the courage to question. They give us answers…if we are willing to find them.
We are seemingly books. And books are nothing but us.
