"When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind."
Money can’t buy you happiness but it can buy you books.

"If you want something that doesn’t yet exist, there’s only one sure-fire way to get it. That’s to become a Maker."

Unclear how superglue factors into all this.
Glue has a component of it that is made from the hooves of hoofed animals like horses and pigs. Don’t ask how I know this. I can only assume that the “super” part of it has to do with the fact that anything from a unicorn would be hella better than a normal horse.
MY DAD FOUND MY OLD @STARWARS VHS TAPES! I shrieked with joy. McGyver commercials. Old sequences. No Hayden Christensen in ROTJ. #SoFrickingExcited
"A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people - people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book."
“Books are adventure. They contain murder and mayhem and passion. They love anyone who opens them.” - Elinor Loredan (Helen Mirren) in”Inkheart”
Literature is love ♥
