Splash du Jour: Monday

People never explain to you exactly what they think and feel and how their thoughts and feelings work, do they? They don't have time. Or the right words. But that's what books do. It's as though your daily life is a film in the cinema. It can be fun, looking at those pictures. But if you want to know what lies behind the flat screen you have to read a book. That explains it all.
-- Sebastian Faulks, A Week in December --

Have a great Monday!

I like this explanation. Books slow you down so you can see beyond the surface, and give you the words for it. Lovely.
