One of my favourite book quotes…

After seeing this on the bestsellers list for a while, I decided to see what it was like. I found a great quote which I thought was really interesting and inspiring:

‘We live in time – it holds and moulds us – but I’ve never felt I understood it very well. I’m not referring to theories about how it bends and doubles back, or may exist elsewhere in parallel versions. No, I mean ordinary, everyday time, which clocks and watches assure us passes regularly: tick-tick, click-clock. Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only the smallest pleasure or pain to teach us time’s malleability. Some emotions speed it up, others slow it down; occasionally, it seems to go missing – until the eventual point when it really does go missing, never to return.’
