Quoted: Chad Harbach (via The Art of Fielding) on the Soul

I grew up loving books, and even though I don’t have as much time for them as I would like, reading remains a great joy for me.  I have a small notebook where (when I remember to actually use it) I keep track of books read, borrowed, lent, and my favorite part – favorite lines and passages.  There are certain moments in books when I have been struck still, left to mull over the perfection of a particular phrase.  I recently finished The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach (you may have already seen this book pop up on the blog in previous posts), and fell in love with this line about the soul.  The novel itself is beautiful, well worth reading.
