I could never change you

"You think that you are an iconoclast, but you’re not. You just move, or replace what you cannot have. If you fail at something, you retreat into something else. Nothing changes you.... I left you because I knew I could never change you. You would stand in the room so still sometimes, as if the greatest betrayal of yourself would be to reveal one more inch of your character."

-Katherine, The English Patient, by Michael Ondaatje


  1. I've never read this book. I should. After that--

  2. How have I allowed this to happen?! It's one of my favorite books of all time. You can borrow it asap!
