A Nice Thought

…”books, they offer one hope—that a whole universe might open up from between the covers, and falling into that new universe, one is saved.”
“Oh yes, I think so. I really do,” Aunt Queen responded almost gleefully. “It ought to be that way with people, and sometimes it is. Imagine—each new person an entire universe. Do you think we can allow that?…” –Anne Rice, Blackwood Farm
