There is no evidence that we’ve been placed on this planet to be especially happy or especially normal. And in fact our unhappiness and our strangeness, our anxieties and compulsions, those least fashionable aspects of our personalities, are quite often what lead us to do rather interesting things. — Jon Ronson
Don’t give up on books. They feel so good — their friendly heft. The sweet reluctance of their pages when you turn them with your sensitive fingertips. A large part of our brains is devoted to deciding whether what our hands are touching is good or bad for us. Any brain worth a nickel knows books are good for us. — Kurt Vonnegut

“I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me.”

I got a copy of this book when I was just a wee tiny person. I read it over and over again. I still have it… and it looks a lot like this one.
