❝It consoles me in my retreat; it relieves me of the weight of distressing idleness and, at any time, can rid me of boring company. It blunts the stabs of pain whenever pain is not too overpowering and extreme. To distract me from morose thoughts, I simply need to have recourse to books.❞
— Michel de Montaigne

fabulous entertainment for hours.
❝A novelist is essentially a person who covers distance through his patience, slowly, like an ant.❞
— Orhan Pamuk
