I’m not an extraordinary worker, I’m an extraordinary daydreamer. I exceed all my fantasies—even that of writing.

I lay on the bed and lost myself in the stories. I liked that. Books were safer than other people anyway.

21. Would suggest to a friend

A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face.
— Jorge Luis Borges, El Acedor (via fuckyeahjorgeluisborges)
But in truth books have no owner. Every book you see here has been somebody’s best friend.
Carlos Ruiz ZafónThe Shadow of the Wind (via booksandhotchocolate)
