Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That’s part of what it means to be alive.

I hate this ‘Facebook revolution’ stuff. I really strongly object to it. You can sit at your computer all day long, and you’re never going to get anything done in terms of bringing down a government. What happens is when people got up and went into the streets.

Book lovers often experience a post-reading withdrawal in which we are depressed because we’re no longer with the characters. They are living on in the fictional world of the book, but you have no idea what’s happening. We mope around for days and our friends tell us “get over it, it’s just a book,” and we feel like no one else understands. So we run home and lay in bed and imagine various epilogue scenarios in our heads, refusing to believe it’s over.

I love walking into a bookstore. It’s like all my friends are sitting on shelves, waving their pages at me.

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.

Susan Cain, Quiet (via sirmerlin)

This is why I label myself as such!
