Hey, I don't know how well this will work, but I know there's a thread in the Music section for song lyrics, so I thought I'd start a thread here to post any quotes from books that we like. I read a lot, and sometimes find myself affected by things I read, because I relate to it, or just find it thought-provoking, that's why I wanted to do this. So, maybe, if you're reading a book, and come across something you like, post it here. Or, if there are any quotes from books that just stick in your mind, post them.

I'll start...

The first sight of him did something to her, twisted her heart round so that it almost hurt. Absurd that an ordinary man - yes, a perfectly ordinary young man, should be able to do that to one! That the mere look of him should set the world spinning, that his voice should make you want - just a little - to cry... Love surely should be a pleasurable emotion - not something that hurt you by its intensity...

Sad Cypress - Agatha Christie.

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while, I could not enter, for the way was barred to me.
