Notable Quotables: Day 3

Day3: I'm beginning to spot a recurring trend in the type of books I read... (¬_¬)

Will had never wanted to fall in love. When it had happened to friends it had always struck him as a peculiarly unpleasant-seeming experience, what with all the loss of sleep and weight, and the unhappiness when it was unreciprocated, and the suspect, dippy happiness when it was working out. These were people who could not control themselves, or protect themselves, people who, if only temporarily, were no longer content to occupy their own space, people who could no longer rely on a new jacket, bag of grass and an afternoon rerun of The Rockford Files to make them complete.

- Nick Hornby, About A Boy
