Currently Reading : One Day by David Nicholls


"The trick of it, she told herself is, to be courageous and bold and make a difference. Not to change the world exactly, just the bit around you. Go out there with your double-first, your passion and your new Smith Corona electric typewriter and work hard at ... something. Change lives through art maybe. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved of at all possible. Eat sensibly. Stuff like that. It wasn't much in the way of a guiding philosophy, and not one you could share, least of all with this man, but it was what she believed." ~ One Day by David Nicholls (page 12-13)

This extract of the book about living as an independent adult just really struck me... Something about it I just loved. It's beautifully written and feels so real and important that I had to share it.
