“There are so many stars
that if one or another of them falls
it’s no great loss, since there are thousands left.
But there’s just this one moon up in the sky,
which no one saw fall ever—except in dreams.”—Giacomo Leopardi, from Canti, trans. Jonathan Galassi (via proustitute)
I wish I could make a living just by reading. Not so much reading aloud in public - like some may do, but instead at home, not having to worry about writing some review on it. Just reading. Simple as that.
