“Here’s what I mean by the miracle of language. When you’re falling into a good book, exactly as you might fall into a dream, a little conduit opens, a passageway between a reader’s heart and a writer’s, a connection that transcends the barriers of continents and generations… And here’s the magic. You’re different. You can never go back to being exactly the same person you were before you disappeared into that book.”

― Anthony Doerr
