If there’s a hole in your heart, go to the one who opened it. Meet them.
She found that her mascara had now been worn down on her rosy cheeks. It’s true that she’d still been in love with the past. The glimmer of what was still anchors her from moving towards a future that is brighter.
What an interesting novel. I highly recommend it to anyone in life questioning their own inner dilemma regarding morality and the relationships they have with others. Certainly a gift for those in their 20’s. It contains a number of silver linings that would most definitely benefit long term (and prevent any inevitable regrets). Fowles’ story is coupled with far too many insightful bits that it left me questioning absolute authenticity. Again, highly recommend. I don’t think you’d regret it.
I’m a strong believer that we, as people, won’t really get it. From the time we can conceive our own thoughts to the last puffs of the air we breathe. No matter how established we consider ourselves, there’s always hints of ignorances within us. Life is given to us without much of a blueprint to see what works and doesn’t. We can try, but for only so long. Ya know?
The Magus by John Fowles.
What a poignant piece of literature. Only 50 or so pages in and it’s embarrassing to admit how it has made me teary-eyed. A mentor recommended me the novel. Said he should’ve read it in his 20’s. So far, I’m gradually understanding the importance of it.
I am absurdly looking forward to the moment I can gracefully set up a bookshelf for all the books I’ve read or intend to read. There’s something beautiful about the visual.
