Loving Stories

7 Feb

Here are some great quotes from a book I devoured during Jr. High. It’s a book for the book lover if I ever saw one. A Neverending Story by Michael Ende

“If you have never wept bitter tears because a wonderful story has come to an end and you must take your leave of the characters with whom you have shared so many adventures, who you have loved and admired, for whom you have hoped and feared and without whose company life seems empty and meaningless- if such things have not been part of your experience then you will not understand what Bastian did next.”

“I wonder, he said to himself, what’s in a book when it’s closed. Oh, I know it’s full of letters printed on paper, but all the same something must be happening because as soon as I open it, there’s a whole story with people I don’t know yet and all kinds of deeds, battles and adventures. And sometimes there are storms at sea or it takes you to strange cities and countries. All these things are somehow shut up in a book.”
