Words, Jean-Paul Sartre

Madame Picard believed that a child should be allowed to read anything: ‘A book never does any harm if it is well written.’ While she was there, I had once asked permission to read Madame Bovary and my mother, in an oversweet voice, had said: ‘But if my little darling reads books like that at his age, what will he do when he grows up?’ ‘I shall live them!’ This reply had met with the most complete and lasting success.

Jean-Paul Sartre, Words.

Can you find yourself in a book? It’s you written all over. Inside, out. All of you since the beginning to this moment.

I did.
Find myself.
In Words.
