Bucket Full of Books: Reality Hunger
A great book allows me to leap over that wall: in a deep, significant conversation with another consciousness, I feel human and unalone.
My taste for quotation, which I have always kept — why reproach me for it? People, in life, quote what pleases them. Therefore, in our work, we have the right to quote what pleases us.
I’m interested in knowing the secrets that connect human beings. At the very deepest level, all our secrets are the same. ― David Shields, Reality Hunger: A Manifesto
