luminous with life

I have finally gotten round to reading Everything is Illuminated By Jonathan Safran Foer (I know, I know…but better late than never definitely applies in this case). Here a couple of quotes from Mr Foer, a truly formidable voice:

“The bruises go away, and so does how you hate, and so does the feeling that everything you receive from life is something you have earned.” — Jonathan Safran Foer (Everything Is Illuminated)

“My life story is the story of everyone I’ve ever met.” — Jonathan Safran Foer (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close)

“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living” — Jonathan Safran Foer (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close)

“When I looked at you, my life made sense. Even the bad things made sense. They were necessary to make you possible.” — Jonathan Safran Foer
