"Honestly, I think everyone is different and unique, and that’s a good thing. It’s not bad. It’s kind of the best thing in the world. You don’t want to be like everything else. […] So I think what’s special is the fact that you’re different, and is the fact that you’re unique, and that you can bring something to the table. So if anything, embrace that uniqueness and that thing that you have that no one else does, and expand upon that and make it better, and tell everyone about it, and be confident in it. Because if you’re confident and happy and smiling, you will attract confidence and happiness and laughter."

"I love New York on summer afternoons when everyone’s away. There’s something very sensuous about it - overripe, as if all sorts of funny fruits were going to fall into your hands."

The mark of a good book is one that you can read over and over again. The written word is a powerful thing; the words in the battered, well-read books on a bookshelf can enlighten a tired mind, or help someone escape a troubled reality.
This blog will serve as a celebration of words. Though primarily this blog will focus on reading and writing, its purpose is to be a source of inspiration.
