Each day, we wake slightly altered, and the person we were yesterday is dead. So why, one could say, be afraid of death, when death comes all the time?
— John Updike, Self-Consciousness (via larmoyante)

awildofnothing tagged me in this book list post, and I had so much fun reading her responses that I wanted to reply! 

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that mean something to you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

So, after not-too-much thought here is a collection of a few of the written works (serious and fun) that have stuck with me on some level since reading them:

1. The Grapes of Wrath— John Steinbeck
2. The Short Stories of Ernest Hemmingway
3. The Essential Rumi
4. Thirteen Stories— Eudora Welty
5. Paris Spleen— Charles Baudelaire
6. The Cripple of Inishmaan— Martin McDonagh
7. As I Lay Dying— William Faulkner
8. Rainer Maria Rilke Selected Poems
9. Arcadia— Tom Stoppard
10. White Noise— Don DeLillo

Bonus round:

11. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
12. Coraline— Neil Gaiman
13. A Series of Unfortunate Events— Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler)

Quote 26 Jul 1,298 notes
There is no final, satisfying way to balance our need to be known with our need to be alone. The balance is always uncertain and provisional; it’s always a matter of dissatisfaction, give-and-take, and sacrifice…It’s up to each of us to balance the risks and rewards—to trade, in right proportion, loneliness for freedom, explicability for mystery, and the knowable for the unknown within ourselves.
— Joshua Rothman, “Virginia Woolf’s Idea of Privacy” (via larmoyante)
