Thank you so much to Zanthee for the nomination! I’m not big on motivational quotes and stuff but this’ll be fun to try out xD

RULES: (close enough anyway)

  1. Select one quote per day for the next three days and write a little something on it
  2. Thank the person who nominated you
  3. Then nominate three other bloggers for the challenge. So today, I’ll invite the following to take part:


“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.” – Alan Bennett, The History Boys

I re-watched this film yesterday and am always struck by this line. This quote is a perfect summary of why I have always loved writing. It is beautifully acted by Richard Griffiths and captures perfectly the loneliness of being outside of most people’s understanding, as well as the relief and curative power of finally being understood.

I recommend you all watch the whole History Boys 2006 film because the words mean so much more within the context of the script.
