…but it is only a darkness, it is not an end, or the end. Don’t think, don’t feel, any more than you can help, don’t conclude or decide—don’t do anything but wait. Everything will pass, and serenity and accepted mysteries and disillusionments, and the tenderness of a few good people, and new opportunities and ever so much of life, in a word, will remain. You will do all sorts of things yet, and I will help you. The only thing is not to melt in the meanwhile.
— Henry James

tsundoku [tsoon-doh-koo]

積ん読 (kanji) つんどく (hiragana)

(noun) This informal, untranslatable Japanese word is a favorite for book lovers, especially for those who yearn for the authenticity of print and love to smell and hold books! Tsundoku is defined as the act of buying books with the purpose of reading them but failing to, thus causing them to accumulate over time.  

  • Etymology: tsumu (to pile up) + doku (to read)

tsundoku it is!

There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves; it is not my nature. My attachments are always excessively strong.
— Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey (via wordsnquotes)
I often carry things to read
so that I will not have to look at
the people.
— Charles Bukowski, The Last Night of the Earth Poems (via wordsnquotes)
