"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies… The man who never reads lives only one."
George R.R. Martin, A Dance With Dragons (via aripple)
"It’s weird to feel someone’s attention on you that way, like you’re the only thing in the world they’re listening to. Most of the time people are distracted, or just thinking about what they’re going to say next."
Lilith Saintcrow, Jealousy (via creatingaquietmind)
