do you know when you read a book that’s just so well written that when you finish it you can’t help but just sit there in silence for a few minutes just thinking about it, and then you reread the last couple pages, and just close the book and kind of stroke  the cover in a weird sort of way and just keep thinking because it leaves such a strong impression on you that it just kinda haunts you in the back of your mind for the next few days

    "Do you think I am wonderful?" She asked him one day as he leaned against the trunk of a petrified maple.
    "No," he said.
    "Why?"
    "Because so many girls are wonderful. I imagine hundreds of men have called their loves wonderful today, and its only noon. You couldn't be something that hundreds of others are."
"I used to tell him, What good is all of that love doing on paper? I said, Let love write on you for a little. But he was so stubborn. Or perhaps he was only timid."
- Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated (via allofthepretty)
"Love itself became the object of her love. She loved herself in love, she loved loving love as love loves loving."

"If there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, and we will give it walls, and we will furnish it with soft, red interiors, from the inside out, and give it a knocker that resonates like a diamond falling to a jeweller’s felt so that we should never hear it. Love me, because love doesn’t exist, and I have tried everything that does."
- Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated (via divided)
"This is love, she thought, isn’t it? When you notice someone’s absence and hate that absence more than anything? More, even, than you love his presence?"

"She was a genius of sadness, immersing herself in it, separating its numerous strands, appreciating its subtle nuances. She was a prism through which sadness could be divided into its infinite spectrum."
