Jane Austen; Pride and Prejudice (via wordpainting)
Taken out of context this is a wonderful quotation about books and just how delightful they are and how people who love reading fucking love reading. All us bookish types can relish in the sentiment and dream of our own wonderful libraries.
Then, once we’re done with that, we can consider the quotation in-context and delight in how vain, vapid, ignorant, and uninteresting the speaker is and how she’s only making these comments because she is bored and scared that the object of her affection is growing far too attached to someone else. She must befriend and overnice the enemy (who, consequently, is reading) and distract her from the activities that, in his eyes, makes her virtuous.
I love this song. It makes me feel sad and nostalgic and, yet, happy, at the same time. The music is beautiful. I think these fellas are pretty amazing and I’m a little sad I won’t be in RI to see them this week. They only seem to be there when I’m not.
Ain’t that the way.
