Penguin Classics bookcase, shelf 4.
There is one thing which gives radiance to everything.
It is the idea of something around the corner.
|—||G. K. Chesterton (via veareflejos)|
Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people’s ideas, like listening to music (oh yes), like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.
|—||Roberto Bolaño in 2666 (2004)|
