Bookloving Quote/Funfact of the Month

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. ”
― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
