"I was young, filthy and clueless, living alone in a big city for the first time, and the library made me welcome. I think of it with love."


I love this whole piece. But these two sentences are just perfect.
The city is reverberating, still.
Hoping for more of that principled courage.

Plus, the whale.

Wishing you the things you need on such a hard, hard morning in such a hard, hard week.

Thus speak of the whale

Was any book ever so good in such a way?
God keep me from ever
completing anything. This whole book is but a draught--nay, but the
draught of a draught. Oh, Time, Strength, Cash, and Patience!


Thank you, and oh to you too.

It is its own strange and fantastic mess of a masterpiece. And so funny, too. I love it a lot.
