Author: “Books are uniquely portable magic.”


“I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you.”

— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

Zwischen Immer und Nie. Between always and never.

We know what we are, but we know not what we may be.

Life is not fair, but we can choose to be
fair humans even if life or other humans choose to be unfair to us.

Look like the innocent flower but be the serpent under it.

We give because someone gave to us.
We give because nobody gave to us.

We give because giving has changed us.
We give because giving could have changed us.

You have a place in my heart no one else ever could have.

For I myself am best when least in company.

I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.
