“The gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.”
You might want to start small. Don’t try to swallow up a great work of literature - try a short, easy read. Just read anything - a book of short stories, Calvin and Hobbes, Slaughterhouse Five. Make a point of reading before you go to bed instead of going on the internet. Carry your book with you everywhere you go. It is your best friend.
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
Is there any literary character more charming than Dickon Sowerby?
If Dickon wasn’t your ideal man as a child I don’t think we can be friends. (I assume he comes with the pony and the raven.)
wow. that’s it. i’m officially done with my first semester of college.
