Putting a book on the shelf, and flipped through to see what I underlined. Yes, I underline books. But that’s why I don’t use the library. I buy the book. My husband, whose mother was a librarian, gets squeamish when I do this. Nonetheless..
Quote from Foer book:
“But it’s so painful to think, and tell me, what did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.”
My conclusion: Don’t over think anything. Any thing is worth only so much time. Live your life. And live in it a way you won’t have to apologize for later.
