Quote that inspires you/gives you all the feels from a book you’ve read:
“I would not like to live in a world without cathedrals. I need their beauty and grandeur. I need their imperious silence. I need it against the witless bellowing of the barracks yard and the witty chatter of the yes-men. I want to hear the rustling of the organ, this deluge of ethereal notes. I need it against the shrill farce of marches.” — Pascal Mercier (Night Train to Lisbon)
