Want you to know that I remember every single thing.”

The value of books is proportionate to what may be called their plasticity - their quality of being all things to all men, of being diversely moulded by the impact of fresh forms of thought. Where, from one cause of the other, this reciprocal adaptability is lacking, there can be no real intercourse between book and reader. In this sense it may be said that there is no abstract standard of values in literature: the greatest books ever written are worth to each reader only what he can get out of them. The best books are those from which the best readers have been able to extract the greatest amount of thought of the highest quality; but it is generally from these books that the poor reader gets least.

—Edith Wharton. (via the-library-and-step-on-it)

I despise the kind of book that tells you … how to make yourself happy! The first duty of philosophy is making you understand what deep shit you are in.

Oh life, it’s bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me…
