It takes much bravery to stand up to our enemies but we need as much bravery to stand up to our friends.
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.
The way a book smells when you thumb through it. The way quiet winter air makes you feel like no one else exists. The smell of the woods after a thunderstorm. That split second before your chair tips back. The feeling right before you cry. The euphoria before the heartbreak. That moment when you wonder if they think of you the way you think of them. These things, I live for.
Outside of a dog, a book is your best friend, and inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Speaking personally, you can have my gun, but you'll take my book when you pry my cold, dead fingers off of the binding.
