Literature and love

January 12, 2010

One of my recurring dreams, of my many, is that I have to go to class and I haven’t done the reading. Last night, I had to go to French class at 12:45 p.m. but I hadn’t read the first 11 pages of Nathaniel Hawthorne, which began, in my head, with the words “Policeman, policeman.”

I’m not sure whether this is a sign that I’m stressed and feeling unprepared in life or that I should read The Scarlet Letter.

However, my point is to say that I love when I’m reading a book and come across a line that I just love and want to remember to add to my book of favorite quotes at home. However, inevitably I forget about the quote, finish the book, return it to the library or rent it out, and then never remember it again. This saddens me.

Today’s dating advice comes from the book I’m currently reading, City of Thieves:

“The secret to winning a woman is calculated neglect.”

Um, you can say that again.
