Quote of the day: 1/25/13
“This fall I think you’re riding for—it’s a special kind of fall, a horrible kind. The man falling isn’t permitted to feel or hear himself hit bottom. He just keeps falling and falling. The whole arrangement’s designed for men who, at some time or other in their lives, were looking for something their own environment couldn’t supply them with. Or they thought their own environment couldn’t supply them with. So they gave up looking. They gave it up before they ever really even got started.”
-From Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Personal notes: J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye is the quintessential “lost teenager” book that resonated really well with me during high school. I have to admit, I had the biggest crush on the fictional character Holden Caulfield because I could really relate to how he kind of drifts through life, by just barley skating by. This is a favorite “classic” of mine.
