Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it.

Snowpiercer (2014), dir. Joon-ho Bong

"Have you ever been to the tail section? Do you have any idea what went on back there? When we boarded? It was chaos. Yeah, we didn’t freeze to death, but we didn’t have time to be thankful. Wilford’s soldiers came and they took everything. Just a thousand people in an iron box. No food, no water. After a month we ate the weak. You know what I hate about myself? I know what people taste like. I know that babies taste best."

"That world wasn’t all just teacups and light social chit chat. There was a real world of mud and poverty and destitution. The Bennets had real risk of destitution. To a modern audience, the Bennets’ house is really conveyed that way, such as in the opening scene when Elizabeth goes through all that walking in her washing clothes.”

(Deborah Moggach, Screenwriter)

when you finish reading a book you read really fast and you’re like wait i should’ve read that slower

I stepped into the bookshop and breathed in that perfume of paper and magic that strangely no one had ever thought of bottling.

Austen’s World: Pride and Prejudice

Claiming there is no other life in the universe is like scooping up some water, looking at the cup and claiming there are no whales in the ocean
