Quote: Refuge in Books

Elegance

 

When something is bothering me, I seek refuge. No need to travel far; a trip to the realm of literary memory will suffice. For where can one find more noble distraction, more entertaining company, more delightful enchantment than in literature.

  1. Oh I do so love that book – maybe I could reread in honor of the French tragedy.

  2. I recall adding this book to my wish list a few years ago, early on in my blogging…and have not yet read it. I guess I should! Great quote.

      I’m not sure how much I’ll like this book. Parts are very interesting, most of it so far, but it’s not a compelling read. The literary references grab me.
