Quote of the Week

“The trick of it, she told herself, is to be courageous and bold and make a difference. Not change the world, exactly, just the bit around you. Go out there with your double-first, your passion and your new Smith Corona electric typewriter and work hard at… something. Change lives through art maybe. Write beautifully. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved if at all possible. Eat sensibly. Stuff like that.”

~ Emma Moray in “One Day” by David Nicholls

The ending of this book made me furious, but I really loved this bit. 🙂
