Christine Aziz Quotes

"Desire overwhelmed me once she had gone. But it was not a desire for Homer. I had to return to the library. I could already smell the books muskiness and in my mind turned over pages with as many differing textures as a forest; pages that were brittle and fragile which had to be coaxed to turn; pages that were soft and scented, presenting their words as if the were a gift in the palm of a hand, and pages that fell open heavily of their own accord as if weighted by the importance of their message. But more than anything else I was compelled by their mystery, by all the stories they had yet to tell me.I have to go to the library, Homer. I have to be with the books."
